Hebrew translation:

יֵשׁ מִי שֶׁמַּעֲלִים אוֹתָהּ לְמַעְלָה, וְיֵשׁ מִי שֶׁמּוֹרִידִים אוֹתָהּ לְמַטָּה. כְּשֶׁמַּעֲלִים אוֹתָהּ לְמַעְלָה, מַעֲלִים אוֹתָהּ בִּזְכֻיּוֹת, וּכְשֶׁיּוֹרֶדֶת, יוֹרֶדֶת בִּזְכֻיּוֹת, זֶה לְצַדִּיק גָּמוּר עוֹלֶה מִמֶּנּוּ בִּזְכֻיּוֹת וְיוֹרֶדֶת בּוֹ בִּזְכֻיּוֹת. לְבֵינוֹנִי שֶׁזְּכֻיּוֹתָיו שְׁקוּלִים לְחוֹבוֹתָיו, הִיא תְלוּיָה בָּאֲוִיר, אִם הַחוֹבוֹת רַבִּים עַל הַזְּכֻיּוֹת (כְּחוּט הַשַּׂעֲרָה), הִיא מַעֲלָה אוֹתוֹ בְחוֹבוֹת וּמוֹרִידָה אוֹתוֹ בִזְכֻיּוֹת, וְנוֹטֵל בָּהּ שְׂכָרוֹ בָּעוֹלָם הַזֶּה. לְרָשָׁע גָּמוּר, שֶׁאֵין לוֹ זְכוּת בָּעוֹלָם לֹא לְמַעְלָה וְלֹא לְמַטָּה, עוֹלֶה מִמֶּנּוּ בְּחוֹבוֹת וְיוֹרֶדֶת עָלָיו בְּחוֹבוֹת.
הֲרֵי כָּאן כִּי עוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם יוֹלִיךְ אֶת הַקּוֹל, שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר בּוֹ וְעוֹף יְעוֹפֵף, כְּמוֹ מוּעָף בִּיעָף. עַל פְּנֵי רְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמָיִם, זוֹ הַנְּשָׁמָה, שֶׁאֵלּוּ שֶׁזּוֹכִים בַּתּוֹרָה נֶאֱמַר בָּהֶם יִשְׁרְצוּ הַמַּיִם שֶׁרֶץ נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה וְגוֹמֵר, שֶׁיּוֹרְשִׁים נְשָׁמוֹת מִן הַתּוֹרָה, לָאֲחֵרִים – כָּל אֶחָד לְמִינוֹ כְּפִי מַעֲשָׂיו. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב בַּיּוֹם הַשִּׁשִּׁי וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִי”ם תּוֹצֵא הָאָרֶץ נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה לְמִינָהּ בְּהֵמָה וָרֶמֶשׂ וְגוֹמֵר. בְּהֵמָה – אֵלּוּ עַמֵּי הָאָרֶץ שֶׁמַּעֲשֵׂיהֶם כַּבְּהֵמוֹת, עֲלֵיהֶם נֶאֱמַר תּוֹצֵא הָאָרֶץ נֶפֶשׁ חַיָּה לְמִינָהּ בְּהֵמָה וָרֶמֶשׂ.

Tikkun 45 – 3

The word for merit is זכות, the same word also means clear, unblemished and pure. It is a word that is also used to describe clear air and fine oil.

The righteous person’s prayers and actions are pure because his consciousness is to be like God. The daily prayers are written by the sages in plural form. The prayers start with a Zohar section followed by sections from the Torah and from Psalms that is written by King David. He was a humble person with certainty in God and because of that, he represents the Sefira of Malchut.

The righteous person’s actions and meditations are to draw and channel light for others and for the rest of the world. He does the work of God as intended. We are extensions of God, formed from his essence so we can do that. The physical world was created for us to make.
In Genesis 2:3 in the last 4 words of the story of creation, we read the purpose of it “אֲשֶׁר-בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים לַעֲשׂוֹת”,”That God created (for us) TO DO”.
These words are also the aspect of the YHVH and the four worlds of the spiritual system
אֲשֶׁר = ראש = Emanation,
בָּרָא = בריאה = Creation
אֱלֹהִים = יצירה = Formation
לַעֲשׂוֹת = עשיה = Action

When we are ‘tuned’ with the purpose of Creation, our prayers can pass the upper gates and bring down light force energy to continue the process. That is the righteous way.

The mediocre is a person that follows the system but his prayers are not for the benefit of others. They don’t pass the gates of prayers but he receives limited fulfillment for his positive actions in this world.

The wicked people are driven by the desire for the self alone. Their actions draw judgments on them. Even if they have temporary satisfaction from fulfilling their desires, they never hold.

The desire for the self alone is a gravity force to the limited and temporary existence for the body and soul. Going out of ourselves to pray and do for others expand and purify our vessel. Then we can pray and become channels for the light.
