325. רַבִּי יֵיסָא פָּתַח וְאָמַר, (שם ג) אַל תִּקְרַב הֲלֹם שַׁל נְעָלֶיךָ מֵעַל רַגְלֶיךָ כִּי הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה עוֹמֵד עָלָיו אַדְמַת קֹדֶשׁ הוּא. וּמַה מֹּשֶׁה, מִיּוֹם שֶׁנּוֹלַד, לֹא סָר מִמֶּנּוּ הַזֹּהַר הַקָּדוֹשׁ הָעֶלְיוֹן, כָּתוּב בּוֹ אַל תִּקְרַב הֲלֹם. אָמַר לוֹ, מֹשֶׁה, עַד כָּאן אֵינְךָ כְּדַאי לְהִשְׁתַּמֵּשׁ בִּכְבוֹדִי שַׁל נְעָלֶיךָ. וּמַה מֹּשֶׁה כָּךְ, שֶׁהָיָה מִתְקָרֵב בְּיִרְאָה בִּקְדֻשָּׁה כָּתוּב בּוֹ כָּךְ – מִי שֶׁקָּרֵב בְּאֹרַח שֶׁל קָלוֹן אֶל הַמֶּלֶךְ עַל אַחַת כַּמָּה וְכַמָּה.

Zohar Emor
Continued from previous DZ
Rabbi Yessa opened and said,
Exodus 3:5
“וַיֹּאמֶר אַל תִּקְרַב הֲלֹם שַׁל נְעָלֶיךָ מֵעַל רַגְלֶיךָ כִּי הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר אַתָּה עוֹמֵד עָלָיו אַדְמַת קֹדֶשׁ הוּא.”
“Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.”
From the day he was born, Moses was never without the holy radiance, and yet it is written about him, ‘Do not come closer,’ the Holy One, Blessed be He, said to him, ‘Moses, until now, you are not worthy to use my honor. Take off your sandals.’ If Moses was told this despite approaching with awe and holiness, how much more so for anyone who approaches the king with disrespect?

Rabbi Abba said, “Any man who curses his God shall bear his sin” (Leviticus 24:15). Come and see when Israel was in Egypt, they were aware of the seventy ministers appointed over other nations, and each had its own idol god. Once they were bound by the bond of faith, the Holy One, Blessed be He, brought them closer to His service. They separated from these idols and drew near to the supreme and holy faith. Therefore, it is written, ‘Any man who curses his God,’ meaning one of these seventy ministers mentioned above. Even though it is idolatry, since I appointed them to govern the world, whoever curses and insults them ‘shall bear his sin’ indeed. They exist and function by My command and govern the world’s people.
But ‘whoever blasphemes the Name of YHVH shall surely be put to death’ (Leviticus 24:16). It does not say ‘he shall bear his sin’ as with these seventy ministers, but ‘he shall surely be put to death’—death in this world, and he shall be put to death in the world to come. As for these seventy ministers, one who curses them ‘shall bear his sin’ because he insults my appointed servants, and this is forbidden. However, he is not liable to death for this.

Despite Moses’ unique status and his constant connection to the Holy Light from birth, he was still commanded to remove his sandals to disconnect from Malchut and attain a higher elevation. If such reverence was required of Moses, who approached with awe and holiness, it is even more critical for anyone else to avoid disrespecting Hashem.
The distinction between cursing the ministers and blaspheming the holy Name highlights the different offense levels and the corresponding punishments. Insulting the ministers incurs sin but not death, while cursing the Name of Hashem incurs the ultimate penalty.
When we pray to Hashem, we should remember that he is in front of us. Therefore, we should act as if we are in front of the Holy King. We should be clean in body and soul and dressed properly.
