    Mount Ephraim - International Prayer Congregation

    O Dear Lost Sheep from the House of Israel let we try to make a Holy Agreement? No matter what your religion (or none religion) is, with Love and respect for each other. But let the 'base' be the Divine Commands given to Moshe Rabbeinu nothing lessor or nothing more......

    The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/  is a Home for all the Lost Sheep from Israel who turn back to Adonai their Elohim with all their heart and with all their being. But also you can represent yourself, your group or nation in unique a way. You can open a Profile and put blog-posts. Create a group with blog-posts and forums. People can subscribe to notifications updates from groups. The https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is dependent on donations. To hold it free for maintenance and further development for everyone from the Lost Tribes of Israel….. 

    The goal is that we Jews and Ephraim may come to the ultimate ‘agreement’, a Holy, set apart by Adonai’s commandments agreement. As is foretold by the prophet YeshaYahu:

    When it shall happen: the disclosure of His Messiah - His Name,

    Isa 11:9-16  They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of Yah, as the waters cover the sea.

    10  And it shall come to pass on that day, that the root of Jesse, that stands for an ensign of the peoples, unto him shall the nations seek; and his resting-place shall be glorious.

    11  And it shall come to pass in that day, that Yah will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people, that shall remain from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    12  And He will set up an ensign for the nations, and will assemble the dispersed of Israel, and gather together the scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

    13 And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)

    Please read good? Our terms before you register? https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/terms

    14  And they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines (The head of Amalek today PA, PLO, Hamas etc.) on the west; together shall they spoil the children of the east; they shall put forth their hand upon Edom (Western world today, Edom and Yishmael in unity) and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

    15  And Yah will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea (Today: Edom and Yishmael in unity with Amalek their leader); and with His scorching wind will He shake His hand over the River, and will smite it into seven streams, and cause men to march over dry-shod.

    16  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people (the dispersed from Israel and Yehudah), that shall remain from Assyria, like as there was for Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

    My part of the Holy Agreement is that I mention daily your profile names in my personal Prayers and when I am on the Har HaBait near where once was and soon shall be again the Kodesh Kodeshim. From where HaShem shall speak again from between the Cherubim above the Atonement lid of the Ark of the Covenant all the words that the Benay Yisrael need to know: The revelation of Messiah Ben David......

    It is unfair and shameful how Facebook treated me. I strongly believe it is not safe for every Lost Triber to be on Facebook. It has nothing to do that I am losing my hope. But I start to realize we, the Benay Israel, must build in unification their own companies by raising their own affairs. And no more to be dependent on (other) powers like Facebook etc. Because in the end they ‘work’ you out. Please stop believing in them.

    The messenger here on https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ is not so good to work with for my live videos from the Har HaBait. It is very good to chat with each other in personal contacts.
    So please as soon you become a member of the https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ download the application ICQ New. Where I created the group ‘Har HaBait’. From now on I do ‘live chat from the Har HaBait’ via the Har HaBait group on ICQ New. Everyone who likes to Pray with me when I do the Chat from the HarBait should download the application 
    Download, install and search for 'Ariel van Kessel' ask to become a member of the group 'Har HaBait'. When you are a member of https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ I add you to the be a member of the 'Har HaBait' group. My profile name: Ariel van Kessel.
    Gaddi and I are the administrators of the group. Only members from https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ have the possibility to become a member for free. 

    My goal is that we organize together the greatest Prayer Congregation from Israel operating from the Har HaBait in Jerusalem Israel.

    Please help me with donations for the maintenance and further building of the

    First need,
    Please for a good life chat, from the Har HaBait I am in need of a special microphone + headphone for my android that I wear under my mask and speak whispering my Prayers, message and translation from some Hebrew speakers. I cannot shout but you have to hear it well my whispering. Around 300 Dollar.

    Second need,
    A Speech to text translation device that I can attach on a ‘selfie stick’ together with my Android. Maybe two ‘sticks’ to bring the translation device close by for reading. So that I can read the english translation and use what I choose for my talking to you. Around 300 Dollar.

    Thirth need,

    $239.40 next payment to my webhost.

    Thanks to my first donations I could make a good start. To go further I am dependent on Donations. Please let we together help the Mount of Ephraim grow into the Independent United States of Israel.

    So that may come in fulfillment,
    Jer_31:6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (united states of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ”

    Praying and hoping together according,

    Zec 4:1-5 And the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man was awakened from sleep (Your dispersion to the end of the earth).

    2 And he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I have looked, and seen: a lamp stands all of gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps.

    3 “And two olive trees (Yehudah and Ephraim) are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.”

    4 Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, “What are these, my master?”

    5 And the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    11 Then I responded and said to him, “What are these two olive trees, one at the right of the lampstand and the other at its left?”

    12 And I responded a second time and said to him, “What are these two olive branches which empty golden oil from themselves by means of the two gold pipes?”

    13 And he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.”

    14 And he said, “These are the two anointed ones (Yehuadah and Ephraim), who stand beside the Master of all the earth.

    Yehudah and Ephraim standing near the Kodesh Kodeshim........ Two separate nations: Yehudah (Their National soul Messiah Ben David) and Ephraim (Their National Soul Messiah Ben Yoseph) coming to unity by 'oil from themselves' (independent from each other): The 'sparks' of Messiah there (in unity) 'National Soul'....... Messiah Ben David, HaShem speaking from between the Cherubim above the Atonement Lid of the Ark of the Covenant.

    Please don’t accept another messiah but accept only Messiah Ben Yoseph/David.

    By coming into the Holy Agreement:
    And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim.

    (Rashi: Ephraim shall not envy Judah: The Messiah, the son of David, and the Messiah, the son of Joseph, shall not envy each other. See: Yeshayahu - Chapter 11:13)’

    The Jews (Yehudah) shall bring forth Messiah Ben David…..We, Yehudah and Ephraim, hearing again HaShem's Voice from between the Cherubim….. By the anointing of the King of the Jews: Messiah Ben David, the ‘ultimate’ expression of the national soul of Yehudah and Ephraim..
    The unification of Yehudah and Ephraim - The unification of Messiah Ben David/Yoseph.
    Messiah Ben David/Yoseph is the One who: Isa 63:9  In all their distress He was distressed, and the Messenger of His Presence saved them. In His love and in His compassion He redeemed them, and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. What is he base of the HaBerith HaChadasha:

    Jer 31:1-37  “At that time,” declares Adonai, “I shall be the Elohim of all the clans of Yisra’ěl, and they shall be My people.” 

    2  Thus said Adonai, “A people who escaped from the sword found favour in the wilderness, Yisra’ěl, when it went to find rest.” 

    3  Adonai appeared to me from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I shall draw you with loving-commitment. 

    4  “I am going to build you again. And you shall be rebuilt, O maiden of Yisra’ěl! Again you shall take up your tambourines, and go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. 

    5  “Again you shall plant vines on the mountains of Shomeron. The planters shall plant and treat them as common. 

    6  “For there shall be a day when the watchmen cry on Mount Ephrayim (The United States of Israel), ‘Arise, and let us go up to Tsiyon, to Adonai our Elohim.’ ” 

    7  For thus said Adonai, “Sing with gladness for Ya‛aqoḇ, and shout among the chief of the nations. Cry out, give praise, and say, ‘O Adonai, save Your people, the remnant of Yisra’ěl!’ 

    8  “See, I am bringing them from the land of the north, and shall gather them from the ends of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labour, together – a great assembly returning here. 

    9  “With weeping they shall come, and with their prayers I bring them. I shall make them walk by rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they do not stumble. For I shall be a Father to Yisra’ěl, and Ephrayim – he is My first-born. 

    10  “Hear the word of Adonai, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Yisra’ěl gathers him, and shall guard him as a shepherd his flock.’ 

    11  “For Adonai shall ransom Ya‛aqoḇ, and redeem him from the hand of one stronger than he. 

    12  “And they shall come in and shall sing on the height of Tsiyon, and stream to the goodness of Adonai, for grain and for new wine and for oil, and for the young of the flock and the herd. And their being shall be like a well-watered garden, and never languish again. 

    13  “Then shall a maiden rejoice in a dance, and young men and old, together. And I shall turn their mourning to joy, and shall comfort them, and shall make them rejoice from their sorrow, 

    14  and shall fill the being of the priests with fatness. And My people shall be satisfied with My goodness,” declares Adonai. 

    15  Thus said Adonai, “A voice was heard in Ramah, wailing, bitter weeping, Raḥěl weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted for her children, because they are no more.” 

    16  Thus said Adonai, “Hold back your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, for there is a reward for your work,” declares Adonai, “and they shall return from the land of the enemy. 

    17  “And there is expectancy for your latter end,” declares Adonai, “and your children shall return to their own country. 

    18  “I have clearly heard Ephrayim lamenting, ‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like an untrained calf. Turn me back, and I shall turn back, for You are Adonai my Elohim. 

    19  For after my turning back, I repented. And after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh. I was ashamed, even humiliated, for I bore the reproach of my youth.’ 

    20  “Is Ephrayim a precious son to Me, a child of delights? For though I spoke against him, I still remembered him. That is why My affections were deeply moved for him. I have great compassion for him,” declares Adonai. 

    21  “Set up signposts, make landmarks; set your heart toward the highway, the way in which you went. Turn back, O maiden of Yisra’ěl, turn back to these cities of yours! 

    22  “Till when would you turn here and there, O backsliding daughter? For Adonai has created what is new on earth: a woman encompasses a man!” 

    23  Thus said Adonai of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’ěl, “Let them once again say this word in the land of Yehuḏah and in its cities, when I turn back their captivity, ‘Adonai bless you, O home of righteousness, mountain of set-apartness!’ 

    24  “And in Yehuḏah and all its cities farmers and those who journey with flocks, shall dwell together. 

    25  “For I shall fill the weary being, and I shall replenish every grieved being.” 

    26  At this I awoke and looked around, and my sleep was sweet to me. 

    27  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “that I shall sow the house of Yisra’ěl and the house of Yehuḏah with the seed of man and the seed of beast. 

    28  “And it shall be, that as I have watched over them to pluck up, and to break down, and to throw down, and to destroy, and to afflict, so I shall watch over them to build and to plant,” declares Adonai. 

    29  “In those days they shall no longer say, ‘The fathers ate sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are blunted.’ 

    30  “But each one shall die for his own crookedness – whoever eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be blunted. 

    31  “See, the days are coming,” declares Adonai, “when I shall make a renewed covenant with the house of Yisra’ěl (Ephraim, the Lost Sheep from the House of Israel) and with the house of Yehuḏah (The Jews). 

    32  Not like the covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I strengthened their hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares Adonai.

    33  “For this is the covenant I shall make with the house of Yisra’ěl after those days, declares Adonai: I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people. 

    34  “And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbour, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Adonai,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares Adonai. “For I shall forgive their crookedness, and remember their sin no more.” 

    35  Thus said Adonai, who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – Adonai of hosts is His Name: 

    36  “If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares Adonai, “then the seed of Yisra’ěl shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” 

    37  Thus said Adonai, “If the heavens above could be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I would also cast off all the seed of Yisra’ěl for all that they have done,” declares Adonai.

    It doesn’t matter your ‘religious’ or ‘non-religious’ ‘background. Be what you are Christian, Muslim, Hindu or whatever but don’t change by taking off or adding to the Divine Laws ‘revealed’ to Moshe Rabbeinu the first five books of the Bible…… Let us do again all His Sabbath and Yom Tovim? But find a way to ‘use’ the laws of ‘your religion’ as a ‘halacha’ around the Divine Laws revealed to Moshe Rabbeinu. As is the ‘function’ of Jewish Halacha. Express Love in respect to every religion. By annihilating all the laws Avoda Zarah, robbery, murder, raping, murder the rape victim, homophily, pedofily etc. brought forth by following our Yetser Hara (evil inclination) and bringing fort her ‘head’ the ‘anointed’ king: Amalek, the ultimate expression of our evil inclination. But instead cultivating the sparks of Messiah our Yetser Tov (good inclination) into our National Soul. And accepting the areas West of the Jordan River as Jewish (Yehuda’s) Inheritance under Jewish (Yehuda’s) Sovereignty with only Jewish Halacha. Including the Har HaBait with a New Temple and her service under Jewish Halacha. Come and help the Jews to build and reinstitute: The Temple Service until Gen 49:10  “The sceptre shall not turn aside from Yehuḏah, nor an Inscriber from between his feet, until Shiloh (Messiah Ben David) comes, and to Him is the obedience of peoples……..

Chapter 41

והנה ידוע בענין המא’ דאימא אוזיפת מאנהא לברתא כו’

Now, it is known regarding the matter of the saying,[1] “The mother (Imma) lends her clothes to the daughter etc”

שהוא בחי’ ה”ג מנצפ”ך דאימא כו’ פתוחי חותם

That this refers to the aspect of the five aspects of judgment – Gevurot, [also known as] MaNTzePa”Ch of Imma etc.,[2] or the Pituchei Chotam – The Openings of the Seal.[3]

שהוא בחי’ צרופי התחלקות אותיות דמח’ וכמ”ש בזהר ע”פ וקול התור נשמע בארצנו כו’ (וכמ”ש במ”א)

This refers to the aspect of the combinations and divisions of the letters of thought, as stated in the Zohar regarding the verse[4] “The voice of the dove is heard in our lands etc,” (and as explained elsewhere).

ותחלה יש להקדי’ שיש ג’ מדריגות במחשבה עצמה

[To understand this,] we must first introduce that within Machshavah – Thought itself there are three levels.

והוא בחי’ מח’ דמחשבה ודבור שבמחשבה ומעשה שבמח’

These are the aspects of Thought of Thought, Speech of Thought, and Action of Thought.

וביאור הדברים ידוע להיות מבואר למעלה (באות הל”ז (שיש ג’ מדריגות במח’

Now, the explanation of the matter is as was explained previously (in chapter thirty seven[5]) that there are three levels of thoughts.

ציור בלא אותיות כו’ והוא כמו תינוק קטן שאין לו מח’ בצירופי אותיות עדיין

[The first is] imagery without any letters etc.  This is like [the thoughts of] an infant who does not yet think thoughts[6] with combinations of letters.

רק דמיון וציור שבמח’ שנמשך מכח המדמה בלבד

This [type of] thought is only imagination and imagery which is drawn from the power of imagination – Koach HaMedameh.

הגם שנמצא גם בדמיון זה התחלקות חלקי’ לצייר בצמצום בדבר מיוחד אבל אינו רק בדמיון

Although even within this imagination there can be different divisions and forms which are constricted to the specific subject [of the imagination], it is nevertheless only imaginative thought.

ואינו נק’ מח’ עדיין שיחשוב באותו דבר אשר לזה אמרו דקטן אין לו מח’ כלל

This is not yet [truly] called thought, i.e. that he is “thinking” about this thing, and for this reason it has been stated that an infant does not have any “thought” whatsoever.

וגם כשיגדל מעט ויש לו צירופי התחלקות אותיות במח’ אינם אותיות גמורים

Even when he grows slightly and begins to have combinations and divisions of letters in thought, these too are not [called] complete letters.

רק שיוכל לחשוב בצמצום בדבר הפרטי דוקא כמו לחשוב במוחו בדבר מה שנותנים לו ויבחין בינו לדבר מה זולתו עד שיחפוץ בזה וימאס בזה כידוע

It is only that now he is able to think in a constricted form about a specific thing, such as to think in his mind regarding that which is given to him and to discern between this [object] and some other [object] to the point that he will desire one and detest the other, as known.

והוא התחלת ענין המח’ ונק’ מעשה שבמח’

This is the beginning of thought, and is called Maaseh SheB’Machshavah – The Action of Thought.

ובגדול היינו מה שחושב איך לעשות דבר ולצייר ולכתוב דרך פרט דוקא או שעולה במחשבתו כל מה שצריך לעשות בפו”מ וגם מה שמצייר אותיו’ הכתב במח’ או כ”ד גשם נבדל כפרי ועץ וציור כל תמונה וכה”ג הכל נק’ עשי’ שבמח’

In an adult [examples of this include] the thought of how to do something, or draw something, or write something in a specific way, or when there arises within his mind the thoughts of the [physical] actions that he must do in actuality, or if he pictures the written letters in his mind or the picturing of any physical object such as a fruit or tree and the like.  All of these are called Action of Thought.

ובקטן אין לו גם בחי’ מח’ זו רק בחי’ דמיון לבד (ועכ”ז הוא למעלה מדמיון החלומות כו’)

An infant however, does not truly possess even this aspect of thought except the aspect of imagination alone, (but nevertheless, this is a higher [form of imagination] than the imagination of dreams etc.)

וכמ”ש במ”א בענין ביד הנביאי’ אדמה בכח המדמה שבמח’ בלבד

This is as explained elsewhere regarding the matter of “By the ministry of the prophets I have used similitude – Adameh[7] i.e., in only the power of imagination of thought – Koach HaMedameh.

לפי שבשעת השינה לא נשאר רק חלק האחרון יותר שהוא רק הדמיון שבמח’

This is because during sleep only the most final portion [of thought] remains [active], which is the power of imagination of the thought.

(וזהו ענין הגלות שנמשל לשינה כמ”ש היינו כחולמים כו’ אך הן מעין הרהורי ליבא כו’ כמ”ש במ”א)

(This then, is the matter of the exile which is likened to sleep,[8] as stated[9] “We were as dreamers etc.”  Nevertheless, [dreams are a reflection] and alike the thoughts of the heart [while awake], as explained elsewhere.[10])

ובחי’ דבור שבמח’ הוא כמו שחושב צירופי אותיות הדבור שמדבר זולתו

Now, the aspect of Speech of Thought is like the combinations of letters of speech that he thinks when his fellow speaks to him.

שזהו למטה מאותיות המח’ שחושב לעצמו בלא שמיעת דבור זולתו

This is lower than the letters of thought when he thinks thoughts to himself without hearing his fellow speak.

כמו כאשר חושב צירופי אותיות אדון עולם הרי באופן צירוף מיוחד כזה עצמו כאשר שומע במחשבתו דבור זולתו כשמדבר אדון עולם

For instance, [there is a difference between] when he thinks the combinations of letters of [the words] “Adon Olam – Master of the world” in its unique combination to himself, as opposed to hearing in his thought the speech of his fellow speaking the words “Adon Olam – Master of the world.”

אין זה רק שנחקק אותיות הדיבור זולתו במחשבתו

In which case, it is only that the words that his fellow speaks are embedded in his thought.

שהוא למטה מאותיות אדון עולם שבמחשבת עצמו

This is lower than the letters of “Adon Olam – Master of the world” that he thinks to himself.

וכך כל מח’ שחושב איך לדבר טרם שמדבר ומיד מדבר נק’ דבור שבמח’


The same is true of all thoughts that he thinks of how to speak [or say something] immediately preceding his subsequent speech, this is [also] called Speech of Thought.

וכידוע שזהו מבחי’ דבור שבמח’ נעשה בחי’ מח’ שבדבור

And as is known, this is the aspect of Speech of Thought which becomes the aspect of Thought of Speech.

כי ממה שחושב איך לדבר נעשה אופן המח’ בעת שמתחיל לדבר מה שרצה במח’ לדבר כו’

For his thoughts when he begins to speak will be patterned according to his thoughts of how to speak when he desired in his thought to speak etc.

משא”כ המדריגה הג’ שהוא מח’ שבמח’ היינו מחשבת עצמו

This is not the case with the third level which is the Thought of Thought, in other words thinking to himself.

כשחושב צירופי אותיו’ אדון עולם בלא דבור או כשחושב שאר ענין דבר מה בצירופים שונים שנק’ אותיות המח’

[This is like] when he thinks the combination of letters of “Adon Olam – Master of the world” without any speech, or when he thinks of any other subject matter in its various combinations which are called the letters of thought.

אך גם בזה יש ב’ מדריגו’

However, in this itself there are two levels.

הא’ אשר גם הוא בכלל דבור שבמח’

The first is also still in the category of Speech of Thought.

והוא כאשר אינו חושב כלל את ההשכל’ והכוונה שבאותיו’ א”ע וכה”ג שהוא ענין מחשבת הממשלה והאדנות

This is when he does not at all think about the intention and intellectual concepts contained within the letters of “Adon Olam – Master of the world” or the like, to consider the matters of mastery and rulership.

ואין לו מח’ כלל בזה רק צירופי האותיו’ דאל”ף דלי”ת שבאדון וכה”ג

He does not think about this at all, but only the combinations of the letters of Alef, Dalet, and so on which make up the word Adon – Master.

הגם שהוא בלא דבור שהוא למעלה משמיעת דבור א”ע כנ”ל מ”מ נק’ גם זה בשם דבור שבמחשב’

Although he is not speaking, and this certainly transcends hearing [his fellow] speak the words “Adon Olam” as mentioned previously, nonetheless, this too is called by the term Speech of Thought.

 (וכענין וקרא זא”ז

(This is like the matter of [the angels] who “Call to one another”[11]

כמו באותיות המח’ שלנו שהיה יכול אדם לקרוא לזולתו בשמו במח’ מה שקוראו בדבור

This is similar to our letters of thought were we able to call out to another person by name using our thought just as he calls him with speech.

כך הוא בחי’ דבור של המלאכים וכן ב’ רוחות מספרות זע”ז שאינו נשמע לאדם כו’ וכמ”ש במ”א)

It is in this manner that angels speak, as is similarly the case with the two spirits who were speaking with each other but are not heard by man etc.,[12] as is explained elsewhere.)

והב’ הוא המחשבה האמיתית

The second level is true thought.

שהוא מה שחושב את ההשכלה של הענין שבאותיות המח’ שמחמתו הוא חושב מיד אופן הצירופים של אותיות הללו

This is when he is thinking about the intellectuality of the concept vested within the letters of thought, and because of which the manner of the combination of these letters are thought.

 (כמו שאנו רואים בצירופי אותיו’ המח’ שמתהווים רק כפי הכוונה שבשכל אם כך וכך יתהווה אופן הצירוף כך וכך וכידוע)

(Just as we see that the combinations of the letters of thought come in to being solely according the intention of the concept, so that if he is thinking about such and such then the manner of the combination will be accordingly such and such, as known.)

כמו אם כוונתו בשכל בענין דבר פרט לאיזה מסחור או בענין אדנות יחשוב בצירופים שונים כפי המכוון דוקא

For instance, if the intention in his intellect is regarding a specific matter of business, or like the matter of mastery, then the combinations of [the letters of] his thoughts will be specifically according to his intention.

וזהו הנק’ מח’ שבמח’ שהוא הנק’ כח המח’ לחשוב כל ענין דבר מה בצירופים שונים

This is called Thought of Thought, which is called Koach HaMachshavah – The Power of Thought, to think of every matter in various combinations of letters.

 (כמו כח הדבור לדבר כל מה שירצה כו’ כמו שיתבאר)

(It is like the power of speech, that one can speak anything that he wishes etc, as will be explained.)

והיא בחי’ הכלי למח’ עיונית הנק’ מחשבת השכל עצמו (הנ”ל באות מ’ (בחי’ מל’ דתבונה כו’

It is [this level which is] the aspect of the vessel for the Machshavah Iyunit – Analytical Thought which is called the intellectual thought itself (discussed previously in chapter forty); i.e. the aspect of Malchut of Tevunah.

והוא המח’ שתלויה בדעת דוקא ולזה א’ דקטן אין לו מח’

This [type of] thought is dependent upon Da’at [concentration] specifically, and it is for this reason that it states that a child does not have any thought.


דלפי קטנות דעתו כך הוא קטנות המח’ בלא צירופים כלל

For commensurate to the immaturity of his Da’at [concentration] will be the immaturity of his thought, [which will be] without combinations of letters whatsoever.

אבל גדלות הדעת הוא המביא למח’ בריבוי צירופים שונים

However, mature Da’at [concentration] is what brings to abundant thought in a multitude of various combinations.

ולפי אופן העמקת הדעת בעומק המושג כך יהיה עומק המח’ בבחי’ עומק מח’ עיונית הנ”ל

Moreover, commensurate to the depth of the Da’at [concentration] into the depth of the concept, so likewise will be the depth of the thought in the aforementioned aspect of deep Machshavah Iyunit – Analytical Thought.

 וכמו מה מאד עמקו מחשבותיך שתלוי בערך עומק המושג דבינה כו’ וד”ל

Like [the verse],[13] “How deep are your thoughts,” which is dependent upon the depth of the comprehension of Binah etc.  This will suffice those of understanding.
