Tikkun 22 – 41
(Continue from Daily Zohar 502)
Previously the Zohar discuss the Holy name in the aspect of Zeir Anpin, יוד-הא-ואו-הא, as the source of the Light of Redemption. The ואו connected us to the 72 names to break the limitation of Malchut and enter freedom.
The rest of the letters יוד-הא-הא have numerical value 32 as the first ב and last letters ל of the Torah. Together it is לב, ‘heart’ with value of 32. It connects to the 32 times the word ELOHM mentioned in the story of Creation.
“כִּי יוֹם נָקָם, בְּלִבִּי; וּשְׁנַת גְּאוּלַי, בָּאָה”
“For the day of vengeance (Cleansing) that was in My heart (לִבִּי, Numerical value 42) , and the year of (the planned) redemption is coming”
Read more on this verse in Daily Zohar 497.
Psalms 8:93 “ כִּי-אָמַרְתִּי–עוֹלָם, חֶסֶד יִבָּנֶה;” “For I have said: ‘the world, with mercy (Chessed) be built”
Psalms 33:5 “חֶסֶד יְהוָה, מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ.” “the earth is full of the loving kindness (Chessed) of YHVH.”
“וּבְחֶסֶד עוֹלָם, רִחַמְתִּיךְ–אָמַר גֹּאֲלֵךְ, יְהוָה”
“And with everlasting kindness (Chessed) will I have compassion on you, said YHVH, your Redeemer”
“כִּי-חַסְדְּךָ, גָּדוֹל עָלָי וְהִצַּלְתָּ נַפְשִׁי, מִשְּׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּיָּה.”
“For great is your mercy (Chessed) toward me; and you delivered my soul from the lowest nether-world”
“כִּי הֶהָרִים יָמוּשׁוּ, וְהַגְּבָעוֹת תְּמוּטֶינָה–וְחַסְדִּי מֵאִתֵּךְ לֹא-יָמוּשׁ, וּבְרִית שְׁלוֹמִי לֹא תָמוּט, אָמַר מְרַחֲמֵךְ, יְהוָה.”
“For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness (Chessed) shall not depart from you, neither shall My covenant of peace be removed, said YHVH that has compassion on you.”
All the references that the Zohar brings here are a connection to Chessed. It is the force of Redemption that comes from the heart of YHVH.
