Hebrew translation:

אַחַר כָּךְ מַה כָּתוּב? וְאִם לֹא תֵיטִיב, אַל תִּקְרֵי וְאִם אֶלָּא וְאֵם, שֶׁהוּא יֶתֶר שְׂאֵת וְיֶתֶר עָז. לַפֶּתַח חַטָּאת רֹבֵץ, מַה זֶּה רֹבֵץ? אֶלָּא כִּי תִרְאֶה חֲמוֹר שֹׂנַאֲךָ רֹבֵץ וְכוּ’, שֶׁהוּא לֹא יָכוֹל לָשֵׂאת עַל כְּתֵפוֹ חֻמְרַת הַתּוֹרָה, לֹא יָכוֹל לָשֵׂאת עֹל הַמַּלְכוּת בַּגָּלוּת, וְחָדַלְתָּ מֵעֲזֹב לוֹ, כָּאן הֶרְאָה לְקַיִן שֶׁעֲתִידִים יִשְׂרָאֵל לִהְיוֹת בְּדֹחַק בַּגָּלוּת, עָנִי וְרֹכֵב עַל חֲמוֹר, שֶׁיִּהְיוּ כַּחֲמוֹר, שֶׁמַּשָּׂאוֹ עַל כְּתֵפוֹ מֵעֹל הַמַּס בַּגָּלוּת וּמִכֹּבֶד הַמְּלָאכָה, וְזֶהוּ רֹבֵץ תַּחַת מַשָּׂאוֹ – בַּגָּלוּת, וּבְנֵי קַיִן שֶׁהָיוּ עֲשִׁירִים וַחֲזָקִים כִּמְלָכִים בְּחֹזֶק רַב, וּמִשּׁוּם זֶה אָמַר אִם תֵּיטִיב שְׂאֵת, הֲלֹא אִם תֵּיטִיב לִהְיוֹת שְׂאֵת לַעֲנִיֵּי יִשְׂרָאֵל, שֶׁהֵם כְּבֵדִים בְּמַשָּׂא כָבֵד (יִכְבְּדוּ מִמֶּנִּי), אֲנִי אֶסְבֹּל אֶת בָּנֶיךָ בָּעוֹלָם וּמַאֲרִיךְ עֲלֵיהֶם, וְאִם לֹא – לַפֶּתַח חַטָּאת רֹבֵץ, לְשַׁעַר הַגֵּיהִנֹּם נִפְתְּחָה, לִטֹּל נְקָמָה מִמְּךָ וּמִבָּנֶיךָ.

Tikkun 69 – 101

Genesis 49:3
“רְאוּבֵן בְּכֹרִי אַתָּה, כֹּחִי וְרֵאשִׁית אוֹנִי–יֶתֶר שְׂאֵת, וְיֶתֶר עָז”
“Reuben, thou art my first-born, my might, and the first-fruits of my strength; more to carry , and more power.”

Cain was the first born and with that came a heavier burden of a Tikkun inherited from the parents. Adam followed the Snake and connected to Motality. Cain needed to overcome the desire to bring death on his brother. He failed, like his father before him, to follow God’s advice and stay on the right path.

With the blessing of Jacob to his sons, Reuben recognized as the first born. He carried the strength and a greater responsibility for continuing the path of the father.

Cain was the first son of the first father and mother and Reuben was the first son of the first wife of Jacob. He started the line of the children of Israel, a name that was given to Jacob.

As the children of Israel we carry the burden of the Tikkun of the world and have greater responsibility to continue the light of the fathers to the entire world.

Exodus 23:5
“כִּי-תִרְאֶה חֲמוֹר שֹׂנַאֲךָ, רֹבֵץ תַּחַת מַשָּׂאוֹ, וְחָדַלְתָּ, מֵעֲזֹב לוֹ–עָזֹב תַּעֲזֹב, עִמּוֹ”
“If you see the donkey of someone who hates you fallen down under its burden, do not leave him there; be sure you help him with it.”

The Zohar quotes this verse to teach us the responsibility for each other. When we see someone that we hate and he has difficulty following the ways of the light and working on his tikkun, then we should not ignore him and offer help in any way we can.

Note! Never force your righteous ways on others. Don’t make others hate you for being different. It is better to leave them with their issues rather than add more hate in the world. Because the person maybe disconnected from the light but if he hates you or others of your ‘kind’, then it is worse. Hate creates strong energy that feeds the negative side. If you can’t do it with love and care then don’t do it.
