Daily Zohar 4261
150. וְלָמַדְנוּ, בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁכֶּתֶר הַמַּלְכוּת הַזֶּה הִתְעוֹרֵר לִבְנֵי דָוִד, אֵין מִי שֶׁיַּעֲמֹד לְפָנָיו. וְרָאִיתִי אֲנִי דָנִיֵּאל לְבַדִּי אֶת הַמַּרְאָה, מִשּׁוּם שֶׁמִּבְּנֵי דָוִד הָיָה, שֶׁכָּתוּב (דניאל א) וַיְהִי בָהֶם מִבְּנֵי יְהוּדָה דָּנִיֵּאל חֲנַנְיָה וְגוֹ’. וְהוּא רָאָה וְשָׂמַח בָּזֶה שֶׁהוּא מִצַּד יְרֻשַּׁת חֵלֶק חֶבֶל אָבִיו, וּמִשּׁוּם שֶׁהָיָה שֶׁלּוֹ הוּא סָבַל, וַאֲחֵרִים לֹא סָבְלוּ. שֶׁאָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, בְּשָׁעָה שֶׁהַכֹּ”ה הַזֹּאת מִתְעוֹרֶרֶת בְּדִינֶיהָ, לֹא יְכוֹלִים בְּנֵי הָעוֹלָם לַעֲמֹד לְפָנֶיהָ.
Continued from previous DZ
“אִם תַּחֲנֶה עָלַי מַחֲנֶה לֹא יִירָא לִבִּי אִם תָּקוּם עָלַי מִלְחָמָה בְּזֹאת אֲנִי בוֹטֵחַ.”
“Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this (בְּזֹאת) I will be confident.”
We learned that “זֹאת” “this” is the Shechina in Malchut that King David drew strength from to take vengeance on his enemies.
The Holy One, Blessed be He, made him a holy chariot like the patriarchs. He received the holy upper crowns that they inherited. We learned that David left his sons after him the kingdom (Malchut) for generations. He drew strength from the supernal Malchut to keep their strong rule for generations.
We learned at the time that the sefira of Malchut arose for the sons of David, no one could rise before them. And this is what was said,
“וְרָאִיתִי אֲנִי דָנִיֵּאל לְבַדִּי אֶת הַמַּרְאָה וְהָאֲנָשִׁים אֲשֶׁר הָיוּ עִמִּי לֹא רָאוּ אֶת הַמַּרְאָה אֲבָל חֲרָדָה גְדֹלָה נָפְלָה עֲלֵיהֶם וַיִּבְרְחוּ בְּהֵחָבֵא.”
“And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, for the men who were with me did not see the vision, but a great terror fell upon them so that they fled to hide themselves.”
Daniel saw the vision, which was his connection to Malchut. The others couldn’t see his vision and make a connection, and so they fled because Daniel was one of the sons of David, as it is written,
“וַיְהִי בָהֶם מִבְּנֵי יְהוּדָה דָּנִיֵּאל חֲנַנְיָה מִישָׁאֵל וַעֲזַרְיָה.”
“Now from among those of the sons of Judah were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah.”
Only Daniel could see the vision and his connection to Malchut as the verse said, “I, Daniel, alone saw the vision”. He was happy to see it and benefit from what David did to connect his descendants to the control of Malchut for generations.
The others could not bear it and were afraid. Rabbi Shimon said when the force of judgment in Malchut (כה) arises, no one in the world can stand before it.
