Daily Zohar # 4414 – Vayishlach – They give drink to every beast of the field
Daily Zohar 4414
138. בֹּא רְאֵה, (תהלים קכז) אִם ה’ לֹא יִבְנֶה בַיִת שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ, אִם ה’ לֹא יִשְׁמָר עִיר שָׁוְא שָׁקַד שׁוֹמֵר. אִם ה’ וְגוֹ’ – זֶה הַמֶּלֶךְ הָעֶלְיוֹן שֶׁהוּא בּוֹנֶה אֶת הַבַּית הַזֶּה תָּמִיד וּמְתַקֵּן אוֹתוֹ. אֵימָתַי? כְּשֶׁעוֹלִים הָרְצוֹנוֹת וְהָעֲבוֹדוֹת מִלְּמַטָּה כָּרָאוּי.
Continued from previous DZ
After the Nukva has been constructed for its own need from the three lines on the left, as explained, it ascends to unite with Zeir Anpin to receive for others. And it is said that this house, which is the Nukva, ascends and is given and bound between the two sides, the right and left of Zeir Anpin, and songs and praises arise from the lower levels, meaning they elevate Mayim Nukvin to unite Zeir Anpin and Nukva. Then the one who enters, Zeir Anpin, comes in a whisper, meaning the Nukva is in a state of lack of voice, which is Chasadim; even though it has already received Chassadim for its own building, it is still considered left without the right to nourish others. This is why the unification is in a whisper and similarly at night without light. For then Zeir Anpin brings to her with the light of Chassadim, which is voice, and the house, which is the Nukva, is filled with the six lights of Chassadim, Chessed, Gevurah, Tiferet, Netzach, Hod, and Yessod, radiating bright light on every side, which is the secret of Chassadim included in Chokmah. And rivers of fragrance emerge from her, which is the secret of the illumination of Chokmah included from Chassadim, and all the beast of the field receive water from this light, as it is said;
“יַשְׁקוּ כָּל חַיְתוֹ שָׂדָי יִשְׁבְּרוּ פְרָאִים צְמָאָם.”
“They give drink to every beast of the field; The wild donkeys quench their thirst.”
And they sing until dawn rises. And when the light of dawn rises, then the stars and the constellations and their hosts, all of them, praise and sing, as it is said;
“בְּרָן יַחַד כּוֹכְבֵי בֹקֶר וַיָּרִיעוּ כָּל בְּנֵי אֱלֹהִים.”
“When the morning stars sang together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?”
Explanation: The illumination of the union, which is the secret of the night, although it contains Chasadim, is dominated by the illumination of Chokmah. Therefore, at that time, only the beasts of the field, which are drawn from the back side of the Nukva, receive this illumination, and thus they sing. However, those drawn from the inner aspect of Nukva receive from her only in the morning. Then, all the levels of the worlds, Beri’ah, Yetzirah, and Asiyah, sing, both those drawn from the inner aspect and those from the back aspect. This means, “And all the sons of God shouted for joy.” All of them sing together.
“שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת לִשְׁלֹמֹה אִם יְהוָה לֹא יִבְנֶה בַיִת שָׁוְא עָמְלוּ בוֹנָיו בּוֹ אִם יְהוָה לֹא יִשְׁמָר עִיר שָׁוְא שָׁקַד שׁוֹמֵר.”
“A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless YHVH builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless YHVH guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.”
“Unless YHVH” refers to the supreme King, Zeir Anpin, who is always building, meaning in the secret of the continuous union, the house, which is the Nukva, and rectifying it. And when does he nourish her from the constant union? It is said to happen when the desires and the service ascend from below appropriately.
Explanation: When the lowers elevate Mayim Nukvin for this union, Zeir Anpin and Nukva ascend to Aba and Ima (Father and Mother), and they are continuously unifying like them.
