    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.

    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 45

 

והנה כתיב ויעש ה’ לאדם ולאשתו כתנות עור וילבישם

Now it is written,[1] “And Hashem [Elokim] made for Adam and his wife a cloak of skins (Or-עור) and garbed them.”

שזהו בחי’ החשמ”ל דנוגה שמקיף לזו”נ דאצי’ שנק’ אדם ואשתו עד מתחת רגליהם כו’ כידוע

This refers to the aspect of the Chashmal of Nogah which encompasses Zeir Anpin and Nukvah of Atzilut, which are called Adam and his wife, [which ecompasses] until below their feet as is known.

ובתורתו של ר”מ הי’ כתוב אור באלף

In the Torah scroll of Rabbi Meir[2] this was written with an Aleph-א, i.e. Or-אור – Light.

שזהו בחי’ זיהרא עילאה כמ”ש עוטה אור כשלמה שזהו אחר הבירורים דרפ”ח כו’.

This refers to the upper radiance[3] as it states,[4] “He covers Himself with light as a garment,” referring to after the rectification of the two-hundred and eighty eight [sparks] etc.

ומתחלה יש להבין קצת בביאור ענין השבירה והתיקון בכללותן

We must therefore first understand a little bit about the explanation of the matter of the shattering [of the vessels] and their rectification, in general.

שהוא בבחי’ האותיות שנק’ כלים

This [took place] in the aspect of the letters, which are called vessels.[5]

שנשברו ונפלו מצד ריבוי האור שלא הי’ ביכולתם להכיל כמ”ש בע”ח וכמ”ש אתה פוררת בעזך ים

They shattered and fell because of the over abundance of light which they were incapable of containing, as stated in Etz Chaim,[6] and like the verse,[7] “You scattered the sea (ים) into pieces with your strength.”

שזהו בחי’ התהו שנתפררו בחי’ האותיות שנק’ שבירת הכלים כידוע

This refers to the aspect of Tohu-Chaos,[8] wherein there was a fragmentation of the aspect of the letters which is also called the Shvirat HaKelim – The Shattering of the Vessels, as is known.

וטעם הדבר ידוע עד”מ עומק אור שכל שלמעל’ מכלי הגבל’ המוח אז ודאי יתבלבלו אותיות השכל שבמח’ מצד מיעוט כחם להכיל האור כי רב הוא מהם

The reason for this is known to be analogous to a deep intellectual light which transcends the limitations of the vessel of the brain, to the point that [in attempting to explain it] the letters of the intellect and thought will certainly become confused because of their inability to contain the light, for it is greater than them.

משא”כ כלי המוח שמכיל לאור השכל העמוק אדרבא מוגבל ומתיישב ונעלם באותיות הללו (בל”א פאר נעמט כו’)

This is not the case when the vessel of the brain is able to contain the light of the deep intellect, at which point the contrary is true, that it becomes limited and settled and concealed within these letters.

וכאשר לא יכילו אזי בהכרח שיתפרדו האותיות

However, when it is not able to be contained then it is certain that the letters will become disjointed.

וכמו שמבואר במ”א באריכות שזהו כמו בתיבה א’ שתקצר להכיל האור הרב שבה יתפרדו האותיו’ שבה אנה ואנה עד שלא יהיה מובן מזה כלום

This is as explained elsewhere at length[9] that this is like when a word cannot contain the great light that is in it, the letters become disconnected from each other to here and there, to the point that nothing is understood from it at all.

כתיבת ויאמר כשלא יכיל עומק המכוון שבו יתפרדו האותיות וישאר וי”ו מם שבו מפורדין שלא כסדרן במקומן

For instance the word “Vayomer – ויאמר (and He said)”, when it cannot contain the depth of the intention that is within it, the letters become separated from one another and there remains only a Vav-ו or a Mem-מ not in their place or proper order.

 (כדוגמ’ אותיות הרהורי לבו שביום שמתפרדין שלא במקומן ושלא כסדרן בחלומות

(An example of this is the letters of the fleeting thoughts that one has during the day which become disjointed and not in their proper place or order when one dreams.[10]

שבאין רק מצרופים שמהרהר ביום בלתי מסודרין אלא אות מתיבה זו ואות מתיבה אחרת כו’

They come about from the combinations of thoughts one thinks during the day, only that they are not ordered.  Rather, there is [a jumble of] one letter from one word, and another letter from another word etc.

ולכך החלומות שוא ידברו כו’ וכמ”ש במ”א)

It is for this reason that[11] “dreams speak nonsense etc,” as is explained elsewhere.[12])

וזה הפירור נק’ שבירה לחלקים רבים וקטנים

This scattering is called a Shvirah shattering into many different small parts.

כי בבוא זה האות שנתפרר לעצמו במ”א אין בו רק חלק מצומצם מאד מן השכל שהיה מקובץ בהיות התיבה בצירופה בשלימות כו’

For when a [single] letter comes to be separated independently in a different place, it only has a portion of very constricted [radiance] of the original intellect which was contained when the word was in its complete combination etc.

וגם הוא מתפרר פירור אחר פירור עד שנעשה מזה ענין זר לגמרי

And this scattering can undergo additional scatterings until it becomes a completely estranged matter [from the original intellect].

 (כדוגמת ענין החלומות מהרהורי לבו שביום רק אעפ”כ לא יחלום פילא בקופא דמחטא רק מעין הרהורי לבו דוקא וכמ”ש במ”א בענין פותר חלומו’ דיוסף וכמשי”ת)

(This is comparable to the matter of dreams from the thoughts of the hearts during the day.  Nevertheless, one will not dream of[13] “an elephant through the eye of a needle” but [his dreams] will only reflect the thoughts of his heart, as discussed elsewhere regarding Yosef’s interpretation of the dreams,[14] and as will be explained.)

וכך יובן למעלה בענין שבה”כ דאורות דתהו שזהו בחי’ פירור ופיזור האותיות שלהם כמ”ש אתה פוררת כו’

In this manner we may understand how it is above with regard to the matter of the shattering of the vessels of the lights of Tohu-Chaos, that it is an aspect of a scattering and separation of their letters, as stated, “You scattered [the sea] etc.”

והיינו שנפלו למטה מטה עד שנעש’ בבחי’ לבוש זר

That is to say, they fell far below until they became the aspect of a separate garment.

שזהו שרש ענין התהוות בחי’ לבוש דחשמל כו’ הנק’ כתנות עור

This is the root of the coming into being of the aspect of the garment of the Chashmal etc, which is called the garment of skins (עור).

וידוע דעור זה הן בחי’ ג’ מיני אותיות דמחדו”מ ששרשם הוא מאותיות דכלים דתהו שנתפררו וירדו למטה ונעשה בחי’ לבוש ומקיף להלביש לבחי’ המדו’ דאדם כו’

Now it is known that these skins are the aspect of the three types of letters of thought, speech and action,[15] which are rooted in the letters of the vessels of Tohu-Chaos which scattered and fell below to become the aspect of an encompassing garment which garbs the aspect of the emotions of man etc.

וגם שהוא נעשה בבחי’ לבוש נפרד שרשו מלמעלה ממקור המוחין דבינה שבמדות

And, although it becomes the aspect of a separated garment, its root is from above the source of the intellect of Binah [as it is] in the emotions.

וזהו ג”כ בחי’ חיצוניו’ בינה שעל גוזליו ירחף לשמירה כו’ שהוא מבחי’ המקיף דבינה בבחי’ מ”ם סתומה הנ”ל וד”ל.

This too is the aspect of the externality of Binah which “hovers over her chicks” to protect them etc., which is from the aspect of the encompassing light of Binah, i.e. the aspect of the closed Mem-ם discussed previously.  This will suffice those of understanding.

ולהבין זה בתוס’ ביאור הנה ידוע שזהו ג”כ שרש ענין המשלים כמו ג’ מאות משלים דר”מ כו’

To further understand this with additional explanation, it is known that this is also the root for the matter of analogies, like the three hundred analogies of Rabbi Meir etc.[16]

ששרש המשל למעלה מן הנמשל כמו משלי שלמה שהן חכמות עמוקו’ ביותר

 

For the root of the analogy is higher than the analogue,[17] like the proverbs of [King] Solomon which are extremely deep concepts.

שאין להם בחי’ כלים באותיות כ”א בהתלבשותם בענינים זרים נבדלים הרבה מן עצם החכמה

They do not have the aspect of letters except by means of their becoming garbed within matters that are totally separate from the essence of the wisdom.

שם דוקא יושג עומק החכמה כמו שיוכלו להשיג עומק השכל

It is specifically [through the analogy] that the depth of the wisdom is grasped just as one would grasp the depth of a concept.

רק ע”י המשל דוקא שלא יושג גם ברבוי הסבר דברים כו’

This is [accomplished] only by means of the analogy, for it cannot be grasped even through abundant explanations etc.

והמשל שנעשה לפי אופן הנמשל דוקא הרי בהכרח שישיג לעומק ומקור מוצא הנמשל וא”ל לא יכוון המשל לנמשל כלל כידוע

Additionally, the analogy is made according the form of the analogue specifically, and must therefore grasp the depth and root from whence the analogue comes forth, for if this was not the case it would not apply to that which it is analogous to at all, as is known.

א”כ שרש המשל במקור שכל הנמשל ולמעלה הימנו

Hence, the root of the analogy is in the root of the concept and analogue, and even higher than it.

ולזה א’ דברי חכמי’ וחידותם שלפ”ע עומק ומקור החכמ’ כך ערך החידו’ ומשלים כמו משלי’ דר”מ ומשלי שלמה

It is therefore stated,[18] “The words of the wise, and their proverbs;” i.e., commensurate to the depth of the root of the wisdom, so likewise will be the depth of the proverbs and analogies, like the analogies of Rabbi Meir and the analogies of Solomon.

וכמ”ש במ”א בענין וידבר ג’ אלפי’ משל דהיינו משל למשל

This is as explained elsewhere regarding the verse,[19] “And he spoke three thousand proverbs;” that is, an analogy upon an analogy.

כמ”ש בזהר שנמצא במשל האחרון יותר שם הוא העומק והמקור היותר ראשון של הנמשל כו’

And as explained in the Zohar that in the most final analogy one may find the greatest depth and original source of the analogue etc.

וכ”ז הוא ג”כ בשרש בחי’ האותיות שע”י דוקא יושג היטב אור השכל כו’

The same is true with the root of the aspect of the letters, that it is through them specifically that the light of the intellect is grasped well etc.

 (וכמ”כ יובן בענין ההגשמה של אור השכל כל שבא בהשגה והסבר בהגשמה ביותר למטה מטה שם דוקא בחי’ העומק והמקור של גוף פנימית אור השכל כו’)

(It is similarly understood regarding the coarsening of the light of the intellect that the more that something is grasped and can by physically explained and brought down, it is there specifically where [one may see] the depth and root of the essential light of the intellect etc.)

והיינו ג”כ בחי’ חיצוניות בינה שמזה נעשה בחי’ לבוש החשמל דבינה

The [above] is also the case with the aspect of the externality of Binah from which is made the aspect of the Chashmal garment of Binah.[20]

שעל זה א’ ויעש כתנות עור כו’ שהוא בחי’ שומר למוחין שבמדות שלא יבא לבחי’ טעות

It is regarding this that it states, “And he made a cloak of skins (Or-עור) etc,” which is the aspect of the protector of the intellect in the emotions so that it should not come to the aspect of error.

 (שמזה נעשה השליא לולד כו’)

(It is from this that the placenta for the fetus is made etc.[21])

וכמ”ש במ”א באריכות בענין אימא פרישת גדפהא כו’ ובענין בשלום אותיות מלבוש כו’ ובענין סכך דסוכה וכה”ג וד”ל

This is as explained elsewhere[22] at length regarding the matter of[23] “the mother spreads her wings etc,” and the matter of “baShalom-שלום-in peace” is the same letters as “Malbush-מלבוש-garment” etc,[24] and the matter of the Sechach covering of the Sukah and the like.[25]  This will suffice those of understanding.
