140. עַד שֶׁהָיוּ הוֹלְכִים, יָשְׁבוּ בְשָׂדֶה אַחַת וְהִתְפַּלְלוּ. יָרַד עָנָן אֶחָד שֶׁל אֵשׁ וְהִקִּיף אוֹתָם. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, הֲרֵינִי רוֹאֶה שֶׁרְצוֹנוֹ שֶׁל הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא כָּאן. נֵשֵׁב. יָשְׁבוּ וְהָיוּ אוֹמְרִים דִּבְרֵי תוֹרָה. פָּתַח וְאָמַר, (משלי כה) מַיִם קָרִים עַל נֶפֶשׁ עֲיֵפָה וּשְׁמוּעָה טוֹבָה מֵאֶרֶץ מֶרְחָק. הֲרֵי הִסְתַּכַּלְתִּי בְּדִבְרֵי שְׁלֹמֹה הַמֶּלֶךְ, וְאֶת כֻּלָּם אָמַר בְּחָכְמָה.
141. בֹּא רְאֵה, שְׁלֹשָׁה סִפְרֵי חָכְמָה הוֹצִיא שְׁלֹמֹה לָעוֹלָם, וְכֻלָּם בְּחָכְמָה עֶלְיוֹנָה. שִׁיר הַשִּׁירִים – חָכְמָה, קֹהֶלֶת – תְּבוּנָה, וּמִשְׁלֵי – דַּעַת. כְּנֶגֶד שְׁלֹשֶׁת אֵלֶּה עָשָׂה שְׁלֹשָׁה סְפָרִים. שִׁיר הַשִּׁירִים כְּנֶגֶד חָכְמָה כָּךְ הוּא. קֹהֶלֶת כְּנֶגֶד תְּבוּנָה כָּךְ הוּא. מִשְׁלֵי כְּנֶגֶד דַּעַת. בַּמֶּה זֶה נִרְאֶה? אֶלָּא כָּל אוֹתָם הַכְּתוּבִים הֵם בִּשְׁנֵי גְוָנִים, רֹאשׁ וָסוֹף, שְׁנֵי גְוָנִים נִרְאִים. וּכְשֶׁמִּסְתַּכְּלִים בַּכְּתוּבִים, זֶה כָּלוּל בָּזֶה וְזֶה כָּלוּל בָּזֶה, מִשּׁוּם כָּךְ שָׁקוּל כְּנֶגֶד הַדַּעַת.


Zohar Acharei Mot
Continued from previous DZ
While they were walking, they sat down in a field and prayed. A cloud descended, surrounding them. Rabbi Shimon said this is where the Holy One, Blessed be He, wanted them to stay. They sat and discussed the words of the Torah. He began and said,
Proverbs 25:25
“מַיִם קָרִים עַל נֶפֶשׁ עֲיֵפָה וּשְׁמוּעָה טוֹבָה מֵאֶרֶץ מֶרְחָק.”
“As cold water to a weary soul, So is good news from a far country.”
Behold, I am contemplating the words of King Solomon, and all of them were spoken with wisdom.
Come and see, Solomon brought forth three books of wisdom to the world, all with supreme wisdom. Song of Songs represents Chokmah, Ecclesiastes represents Binah, and Proverbs represents Da’at. These three books correspond to the three lines. How do we see this? He answers that these scriptures have two aspects, in that at the beginning and end of the writing, it appears that there are two distinct aspects, that is, it speaks from two aspects, which is the aspect of two lines, right and left. And when looking at the scriptures, one is included in the other, and the other is included in the first. The two matters in the text are included in each other; because of this, it is considered to correspond to Da’at. This is the middle line that consists of both right and left together. From here, we see that all his words are in the secret three lines, so his books are divided into three lines: Chokmah, Binah, and Da’at.

1 Kings 5:9
“וַיִּתֵּן אֱלֹהִים חָכְמָה לִשְׁלֹמֹה וּתְבוּנָה הַרְבֵּה מְאֹד וְרֹחַב לֵב כַּחוֹל אֲשֶׁר עַל שְׂפַת הַיָּם.”
“God endowed Solomon with wisdom and discernment in great measure, with understanding as vast as the sands on the seashore.”
King Solomon was the wisest of all people, and every word he released to the world contained divine wisdom as its source. This Zohar connects his writings to the upper three sefirot: Chokmah, Binah, and Da’at.
When we encounter wise individuals, we are presented with a unique opportunity for personal growth. Each word they utter is a testament to the wisdom carved from their life experiences. Like Solomon, who shared profound truths about life and the human condition, these wise souls offer insights that can enrich our understanding. By closely examining and reflecting upon their words, we can gain a deeper appreciation of life’s complexities and the subtleties of human behavior. This approach broadens our knowledge and enhances our ability to think critically and empathetically about the world around us, empowering us to navigate life’s challenges with wisdom and grace.
