Daily Zohar 4243
218. וְרִבְקָה אָמְרָה אֶל יַעֲקֹב בְּנָהּ, אֲהוּב נַפְשָׁהּ, הַבֵּן הָאָהוּב שֶׁנִּמְסַר לָהּ מִיּוֹם שֶׁנִּבְרָא הָעוֹלָם, וּמְצַוָּה אוֹתוֹ שֶׁהוּא יִתְעוֹרֵר בְּאוֹתָם מַטְעַמִּים שֶׁלּוֹ. וְיַעֲקֹב מִתְעוֹרֵר מִלְּמַטָּה, מְלֻבָּשׁ בִּתְפִלּוֹת וּבְבַקָּשׁוֹת, וְהַקֹּל קוֹל יַעֲקֹב בְּאוֹתוֹ שׁוֹפָר שֶׁעוֹלֶה, וּמִתְעוֹרֵר יַעֲקֹב אֵלָיו, וְנִקְרָב עִמּוֹ, וַיַּגֶּשׁ לוֹ וַיֹּאכַל, וְנִכְלָלִים זֶה עִם זֶה. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנִּכְלָל עִמּוֹ, וַיָּבֵא לוֹ יַיִן, זֶה יַיִן הַמְשֻׁמָּר, הַיַּיִן שֶׁהוּא שִׂמְחַת הַלֵּב, הַסּוֹד שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם הַבָּא. אָז – וַיָּרַח אֶת רֵיחַ בְּגָדָיו, הַתְּפִלּוֹת שֶׁעוֹלוֹת וְהַבַּקָּשׁוֹת. וַיְבָרֲכֵהוּ, נָח הָרֹגֶז וְשָׂמֵחַ הַלֵּב, וְהַכֹּל הוּא רַחֲמִים.

On the day of Rosh Hashanah, Yitzchak goes out alone, meaning, Left line rules, without the Right and without the unification of the middle line that is made with Abraham and Jacob. Yitzchak calls Esau, who is the aspect of the Sitra Achra, to bring him the tasty dishes of the whole world according to their ways. That is, to claim justice for the actions of all the people of the world. Because at that time, “וַתִּכְהֶיןָ עֵינָיו מֵרְאֹת” “and his eyes were so dim that he could not see.” Yitzchak’s eyes became dim because out of him came the one who darkens the face of the people, that is, the prosecutor that is drawn from the Left without the right, and separates from the Right and middle lines, and lies on the throne of judgment, and calls Esau, who represents the Sitra Achra and the prosecutor, and said, Hunt and make for me delicates from the deeds of evil men and bring me.
“וַעֲשֵׂה לִי מַטְעַמִּים כַּאֲשֶׁר אָהַבְתִּי וְהָבִיאָה לִּי וְאֹכֵלָה בַּעֲבוּר תְּבָרֶכְךָ נַפְשִׁי בְּטֶרֶם אָמוּת.”
“And make me savory food, such as I love, and bring it to me that I may eat, that my soul may bless you before I die.”
And Rebekah, who is Malchut, said to Jacob, the beloved son of her soul, her beloved son who was given to her from the day of Creation, and commanded him to awaken his distinctive qualities. Jacob woke up from below and clothed himself in prayers and pleas.
The voice of Jacob is the sound of the shofar that he raises. The upper Jacob, who is the middle line, woke up to Isaac and came closer to him, meaning he united him with Abraham, who is the Right.
“וַיַּגֶּשׁ לוֹ וַיֹּאכַל וַיָּבֵא לוֹ יַיִן וַיֵּשְׁתְּ” “So he brought it near to him, and he ate, and he brought him wine, and he drank” (Genesis 27:25), which means that they were included in each other, and the Mochin that is the secret of eating, illuminated. Since the middle line was included with him, the wine that was brought to him, which is the preserved wine, represents the illumination of Chokmah that illuminates from below upward through the middle line. The wine is the joy of the heart, which is the secret of the world to come, meaning the illumination of Chokmah that continues from the Binah. Then he smelled his clothes, which were the prayers and pleas that arose. And he blessed him, meaning that the anger of judgment rested and the heart rejoiced, and all is mercy.
