2 Samuel 23:3
“אָמַר אֱלֹהֵי יִשְׂרָאֵל, לִי דִבֶּר צוּר יִשְׂרָאֵל: מוֹשֵׁל, בָּאָדָם–צַדִּיק, מוֹשֵׁל יִרְאַת אֱלֹהִים.”
“The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ‘Ruler over men shall be the righteous, even he that ruleth in the fear of God,”
Previously we discussed that Moses’s staff, מטה, gave him control over the lower levels. The name of the archangel Metatron מטטרון who is above Moses also implies control over the lower levels. Above them all is the Holy One that controls everything. The same way the soul keeps the life force of a person, so does God keep and maintain the forces of all angels and levels below.
Changing name and place affects the connection of the person to the life force but the essence of God, that is in everything, never changes.
A tzadik that controls the evil inclination on the lower level achieves a connection to the Sefirah of Yessod and holds the central column as holding Moses’s staff. Yessod is the level above Malchut and it gives him full control over the life force. He can change judgement to mercy, Gevurah to Chessed.
