Tikkun 69 – 96
Seth’s name was supposed to be שית , which is שת with the additional Yod י that represents the entire system of YHVH.
Because the sin changed the pure path, the Yod was removed from the name.
“וַיֵּדַע אָדָם עוֹד, אֶת-אִשְׁתּוֹ, וַתֵּלֶד בֵּן, וַתִּקְרָא אֶת-שְׁמוֹ שֵׁת: כִּי שָׁת-לִי אֱלֹהִים, זֶרַע אַחֵר–תַּחַת הֶבֶל, כִּי הֲרָגוֹ קָיִן”
“And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth: ‘for God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel; for Cain slew him.”
The words זֶרַע אַחֵר, ‘another seed’, tells us that there was a change in the plan. Now Seth was the first to follow the tikkun process and Moses needed to correct that. The two Tablets that is the asapect of the entire Torah is represented by the first letter of the Torah, Bet, ב . With Seth’s name, it becomes בשת, meaning ‘shame’.
“וַיַּסְתֵּר מֹשֶׁה, פָּנָיו, כִּי יָרֵא, מֵהַבִּיט אֶל-הָאֱלֹהִים”
“And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.”
The Zohar tells us that when Moses met with God the first time in the ‘Burning Bush’ event, he hid his face with fear and awe. That corrected the aspect of the missing Yod from Seth’s name.
Once this correction was done, God testified that Moses is the one that can connect with him on the upper level, represented by the letter Yod.
“פֶּה אֶל-פֶּה אֲדַבֶּר-בּוֹ, וּמַרְאֶה וְלֹא בְחִידֹת, וּתְמֻנַת יְהוָה, יַבִּיט”
“with him do I speak mouth to mouth, even manifestly, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of YHVH doth he behold;”
