Daily Zohar 4304
275. שֶׁלְּמַטָּה תּוֹךְ שִׁמְרֵי הַיַּיִן, שְׁמָרִים רָעִים, יוֹצֵא עִרְעוּר אֶחָד מְקַטְרֵג, מַזִּיק קַדְמוֹן, וְהוּא בְּרוּחַ דְּמוּת אָדָם כְּשֶׁמִּתְקָרֵב לַקֹּדֶשׁ. כֵּיוָן שֶׁנֶּעֱבָר מִשָּׁם וְרוֹצֶה לָרֶדֶת לְמַטָּה לְהִתְלַבֵּשׁ בִּלְבוּשׁ לְהַזִּיק אֶת הָעוֹלָם, יוֹרֵד הוּא וּמַרְכְּבוֹתָיו, וּלְבוּשׁ קַדְמוֹן שֶׁלּוֹבֵשׁ תַּבְנִית שׁוֹר, דְּמוּת שׁוֹר. וְרִאשׁוֹן לַנְּזִיקִין מֵאוֹתָם אַרְבָּעָה הוּא שׁוֹר, וְאוֹתָם אַרְבָּעָה אָבוֹת לְהַזִּיק הָעוֹלָם. וְכֻלָּם שְׁלֹשָׁה אֲבוֹת נְזִיקִין פְּרָט לַשּׁוֹר כֻּלָּם שֶׁלּוֹ.
276. וְעַל זֶה כָּתוּב, (תהלים קו) וַיָּמִירוּ אֶת כְּבוֹדָם בְּתַבְנִית שׁוֹר אֹכֵל עֵשֶׂב. מַהוּ אֹכֵל עֵשֶׂב? הֲרֵי דָּרַשְׁנוּ בוֹ, אֲבָל עִקַּר הַדָּבָר מִתַּמְצִית הַלֶּחֶם, וְלֹא מִשִּׁבְעַת מִינֵי דָגָן, אֵין לוֹ בָּהֶם חֵלֶק, וְלֹא רָאוּי לוֹ לִהְיוֹת שָׁם.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Continued from previous DZ
There are five other abyss in the Great Sea, but they are not important as סַגְדּוֹ” ן and גִּילְבָ” א. And since these tears fall, they solidify within one deep, and one tear is drowned within the abyss called גִּילְבָ” א.
The Azara is the secret of the lower six sefirot of Malchut. The inner aspect of the Azara is a complete ten Sefirot, and so the Azara makes 365 halls. The upper three are considered 300. Each upper sefira is 100 because they come from Binah. The six sefirot of Zeir Anpin of Malchut are ten each. Malchut has ten Sefirot that count as singles, but in this aspect, Malchut is missing half, so it counts as five. So all together, make 365 the number of days in a year.
Every opening has the writing “Peace be within your walls” (Psalm 122:7) to indicate the control of the middle line that makes peace between the Right and the Left lines.
Below, in the yeast of the wine, there is a bad yeast that comes out as one detractor and malign, the first harmful force in the world. It has the secret of the image of man when coming closer to Holiness. After he went through the holy, he wants to descend to the world and cause harm. He dresses with the image of an Ox, and he goes down with his chariots. The Ox is considered the first force to cause damage.
The light of the Mochin of the Left of Malchut comes with the illumination of Chokmah dressed in Chassadim, called wine. The judgments from the Left found at the bottom of Malchut are called a waste of wine yeast. From that waste came the first harmful force of the Klipot in the world. It is the source of all harm in Malchut.
And therefore it is written;
“וַיָּמִירוּ אֶת כְּבוֹדָם בְּתַבְנִית שׁוֹר אֹכֵל עֵשֶׂב.”
“Thus they changed their glory Into the image of an ox that eats grass.”
He asks what is an “ox that eats grass.” And he replies, we have already discussed it; he does not deserve to nourish from human food, that is bread, and it is made from the seven kinds of grain of Malchut. He has no part in them and does not deserve to be there. That is why it is written, “Eat grass.”
The reference of Psalm 106:20 is to the Golden Calf, a force of negativity that harmed the people.
