Hebrew translation:

181. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר הָיָה הוֹלֵךְ לִרְאוֹת אֶת אָבִיו (חָמִיו), וְהָיָה עִמּוֹ רַבִּי אַבָּא. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, נֹאמַר דִּבְרֵי תוֹרָה וְנֵלֵךְ. פָּתַח רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר וְאָמַר, (בראשית יב) אִמְרִי נָא אֲחֹתִי אָתְּ. הַפָּסוּק הַזֶּה קָשֶׁה, וְכִי אַבְרָהָם שֶׁהוּא יְרֵא חֵטְא, אֲהוּבוֹ שֶׁל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא, הָיָה אוֹמֵר כָּךְ עַל אִשְׁתּוֹ כְּדֵי שֶׁיֵּיטִיבוּ לוֹ? אֶלָּא אַבְרָהָם, אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁהָיָה יְרֵא חֵטְא, לֹא סָמַךְ עַל זְכוּתוֹ, וְלֹא רָצָה מֵהַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא לְהוֹצִיא מִזְּכוּתוֹ, אֶלָּא עַל זְכוּת אִשְׁתּוֹ, שֶׁיַּרְוִיחַ בִּשְׁבִילָהּ מָמוֹן שֶׁל שְׁאָר הָעַמִּים, שֶׁהֲרֵי הַמָּמוֹן זוֹכֶה לוֹ הָאָדָם בְּאִשְׁתּוֹ. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב (משלי יט) בַּיִת וָהוֹן נַחֲלַת אָבוֹת וּמֵה’ אִשָּׁה מַשְׂכָּלֶת. מִי שֶׁזּוֹכֶה בְּאִשָּׁה מַשְׂכֶּלֶת, זוֹכֶה בַּכֹּל. וְכָתוּב, (שם לא) בָּטַח בָּהּ לֵב בַּעְלָהּ וְשָׁלָל לֹא יֶחְסָר.


Zohar Tazria
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Elazar was going to see his father, and Rabbi Abba was with him. Rabbi Abba said, “Let’s say words of Torah and go.” Rabbi Elazar opened and said,
Genesis 12:13
“אִמְרִי נָא אֲחֹתִי אָתְּ לְמַעַן יִיטַב לִי בַעֲבוּרֵךְ וְחָיְתָה נַפְשִׁי בִּגְלָלֵךְ.”
“Please say you are my sister, that it may be well with me for your sake, and that I may live because of you.”
This verse is difficult, for how could Abraham, who was God-fearing and beloved by the Holy One, Blessed be He, say such a thing about his wife so that they would treat him well? And he answers, even though Abraham was God-fearing, did not rely on his own merit, and did not want from the Holy One, Blessed be He, to diminish from his merit, but relied on the merit of his wife so that he would gain fortune on her account from other nations, for a man earns money by the merit of his wife. This is what is written,
Proverbs 19:14
“בַּיִת וָהוֹן נַחֲלַת אָבוֹת וּמֵיְהוָה אִשָּׁה מַשְׂכָּלֶת.”
“Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from YHVH.”
He who merits a prudent wife merits everything. And it is written,
Proverbs 31:11
“בָּטַח בָּהּ לֵב בַּעְלָהּ וְשָׁלָל לֹא יֶחְסָר.”
“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.”

Friday would be a good day to make a ** Donation, especially if you didn’t donate in the past week. Giving on Friday, which is an aspect of Yessod, expands the vessel for the Light and honor of Shabbat.
** Your donation doesn’t have to be given to the same place every week. You can alternate or split your donation among those who benefit you spiritually.
