    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 49


ומעתה יש להבין בפרטו’ ע”ס דמל’ דאצי’

We must now understand the specifics of the ten Sefirot of Malchut of Atzilut.

שהוא בחי’ התענוג והרצון הפשוט שיצא לידי גלוי באור מדה זו הוא בחי’ הכתר שבה בכלל כנ”ל

That is, the aspect of the simple pleasure and desire which comes to be revealed in the light of this attribute. This is the aspect of the Keter that is within it in general, as discussed previously.

ואח”כ מתצמצם אור התענוג והרצון שלמעלה מן השכל וטעם בבחי’ חו”ב לרצון זה והוא בחי’ החכמה שבמדת המל’ שנק’ חכמה תתאה (חכמת שלמה)

Afterwards, the light of the pleasure and desire which transcends the intellect and reasoning becomes constricted in the aspects of Chochmah and Binah for this desire. This is the aspect of Chochmah of the attribute of Malchut, which is called Chochmah Tata’a-The Lower Chochmah (The Wisdom of Solomon)

חכמה בסוף ששרשה בחכמה בראש בבחי’ חכמה העצמית שמשם נמשך חכמה לרצון זה שבמדת המל’

This is the Chochmah at the end which is rooted in the Chochmah in the beginning,[1] i.e. the wisdom for this desire in the attribute of Malchut is drawn from the aspect of the essential Chochmah.

וזהו בראשית נמי מאמר הוא שהוא בחי’ חכמה שבדבור די’ מאמרות דאלקים כידוע

This is the meaning of the statement that,[2] “Bereishit is also an utterance [of creation],” i.e. it is the aspect of Chochmah of speech of the ten utterances of Elokim as known.

והוא הנק’ בחי’ מוחין דנוק’ דז”א כידוע

This is called the aspect of the brains [or intellect] of the Nukvah-female of Zeir Anpin, as known.

ואח”כ נמשכו בחי’ המדות דמל’ חג”ת נה”י כמו מלך במשפט יעמיד כו’

Afterwards, the aspect of the emotions of ChaGa”T and NeHi”Y of Malchut are drawn forth, like the verse,[3] “A King establishes [the land] with justice etc.”

 (וכמאז”ל י”ב שעות הוי היום ג’ שעות יושב ועוסק בתורה בבחי’ המוחין דמדות וג”ש יושב ודן עפ”י המוחין כו’ וג”ש יושב וזן בחי’ נה”י כו’ וכמ”ש במ”א באורך)

(This is like the sages stated,[4] “There are twelve hours in the day; three hours He sits and is occupied in the study of Torah” in the aspect of the intellect of the emotions, “three hours He sits and judges” according to the intellect, and “three hours He sits and sustains” in the aspect of NeHi”Y etc, as explained elsewhere at length.)

וז”ש כולם בחכמה עשית שהוא הכולל לכל המאמרו’ דמדות פרטיות שבדבר מלך כו’ וכת”י בראשי’ בחוכמת’ כידוע

This is the meaning of the verse,[5] “You have actualized (Asita) all of them with wisdom (Chochmah),” for it includes all the utterances of the other specific attributes in the word of the King etc., like the Yerushalmi translation [on the word] Bereishit meaning B’Chuchmeta – With Chochmah, as known.[6]

ומחדש בכל יום מע”ב עפ”י המוחין שבמדות דמל’ דאצי’ שיורד’ בבי”ע בכל יום בחדושי אופנים שונים כמו שמקבלת המל’ מנה”י דז”א כו’

And “He renews the act of creation every day” according to the intellect in the emotions of Malchut of Atzilut which descend into Briyah, Yetzirah and Asiyah each day in various novel ways as Malchut receives from NeHi”Y of Zeir Anpin etc.

שמאו”א דאצי’ נמשכו מוחין חדשים לזו”נ בכל יום כו’ עד שבכל עת ושעה מתחדש אור ושפע ממקור הראשון שהוא התענוג ורצון הפשוט שבמל’ דא”ס כמ”ש מלכותך כו’ כידוע

This is because every day new intellect is drawn forth from Abba and Imma of Atzilut to Zeir Anpin and Nukvah to the point that at every hour and moment there is a renewal of the light and influence from its first source, which is the simple pleasure and desire in Malchut of Ein Sof as it states, “Your Kingship [is the kingship of all worlds] etc,” as known.

ובחי’ ע”ס דמל’ לפעמים הם בבחי’ הקטנות ולפעמים הם בבחי’ הגדלות

Now at times, the aspect of the ten Sefirot of Malchut are in an aspect of immaturity (Katnut) and at times they are in an aspect of maturity (Gadlut).

ע”ד הנ”ל בע”ס דז”א שיש מוחין דגדלות וקטנות במדות מאו”א כו’ עד תכלית הקטנות בנה”י בחיצוניות הכלים כו’

This is similar to what was explained previously with regard to the ten Sefirot of Zeir Anpin; that they have mature and immature intellect [depending on how they receive from] the emotions of Abba and Imma etc., [including] even the ultimate immaturity in the external vessels of NeHi”Y etc.

כך בבחי’ התגלות דמל’ שנבנה בפרצוף בפ”ע לפעמי’ יש בחי’ גדלות המוחין במדו’ מבחי’ חו”ב שבמל’

Likewise in the aspect of the revelation of Malchut as it is built into an independent stature, at times there is an aspect of mature intellect in the emotions from the aspect of Chochmah and Binah of Malchut.

עד”מ השכל המתפשט בהרחבה במדות המתגלים בדבור

This is like when the intellect spreads forth abundantly in the emotions that are revealed in speech.

ולפעמים מאיר בבחי’ קטנות עד שלפעמים המדות דמל’ בתכלית הקטנות

At other times, however, it radiates in an aspect of immaturity, so much so, that sometimes the emotions of Malchut are in a state of complete immaturity.

 (כמ”ש בזהר ע”פ שחורה אני וכו’ דאזעירת גרמה ואתעבידת כנקודה כו’ שזהו נקודה תח”י וכמ”ש ותפול לפני רגליו כנ”ל)

(This is as stated in the Zohar regarding the verse,[7] “I am black etc,” that she made herself small and became like a point etc., which refers to the point under Yesod as it states, “And she fell before his feet” as discussed previously.)

 (וכמו ההפרש בין ימות החול לשבת דבשבת מקבלת מחג”ת דז”א כמו ימינא ושמאלא ובינייהו כלה כו’ ולפעמים מקבלת בבחי’ פב”פ עד שביוה”כ עולה המל’ עד בחי’ פנימיות ע”י כו’)

(This is also like the difference between the days of the week and Shabbat, for Shabbat receives from the aspect of ChaGa”T of Zeir Anpin, as in,[8] “The right, the left, and the bride between them etc.” and at times [influence] is received in an aspect of face to face (Panim B’Panim), such as on Yom Kippur when Malchut ascends to the inner aspect of Atik Yomin etc.[9])

והנה בחי’ הכלים דע”ס דמל’ דאצי’ הוא בחי’ אותיות הדבור די’ מאמרות ויש בזה ג’ מדריגות ע”ד הנ”ל במח’

Now, the aspect of the vessels of the ten Sefirot of Malchut of Atzilut is the aspect of the letters of speech of the ten utterances [of creation], and there are three levels in this, just as we described previously with thought.

והוא מח’ שבדבור בחי’ כלי חב”ד דנוק’ ודבור שבדבור בחי’ כלי הבל הדבור למדות דדבור ומעשה שבדבור בחי’ כלי נה”י דמל’ עד בחי’ מל’ דמל’ דאצי’ שבוקע המסך כו’.

That is, thought of speech is the aspect of the vessel for the ChaBa”D of Nukvah, and speech of speech is the aspect of the vessel of the breath of speech [which conveys] the emotions of speech, and action of speech is the aspect of the vessel of NeHi”Y of Malchut, until the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Atzilut which penetrates the screen etc.

וביאור הדברים ידוע דמח’ שבדבור היינו עד”מ מח’ שמלובש’ בדבור כשאדם מדבר איזה דבר מה שבודאי בכל דבור פרטי מלובש מחשבה פרטי’ שבפרטיות דבור זה

The explanation of the matter is as known, that thought of speech can be compared to the thought which becomes garbed within speech when a person speaks about something, that it is certain that in every particular word there is vested the particular thought of that speech.

כי כאופני הצרופי אותיות דמחשבה כך ממש מתנהגים אופני צרופים דדבור

For the manner of the combinations of the letters of speech are patterned exactly according to the pattern of the combinations of thought.

 (וכנ”ל דעקבי לאה נכנסים תוך ראש רחל דמבחי’ דבור שבמח’ נעשה מח’ לדבור ונכלל בזה גם המח’ איך לדבר בכלל ובפרט כו’)

(This is as discussed previously that the heels of Leah enter into the head of Rachel; that the aspect of thought of speech is made from the aspect of speech of thought and included in this is also the thought of how to speak, both generally and specifically etc.)

וכמו בפרט דמאמר יהי אור מלובש מח’ דמאמר זה

For example, within the utterance “Let there be light” is vested the thought of this utterance.

ונק’ מאמר סתום ג”כ כי לא בא בגלוי רק הדבור דיהי אור

It also is called a “closed saying” (Maamar Satoom), because all that comes into [actual] revelation is only the speech of, “Let there be light.”

ומח’ זו בחי’ כלי חב”ד דמאמר זה יהי אור שהוא בחי’ החסד דמל’ כו’ לאלף שנה הראשונים) כמשי”ת)

This thought is the aspect of the vessel for the ChaBa”D of this utterance “Let there be light” which is the aspect of Chessed of Malchut etc., for the first (of the six) millennia[10] (as will be explained).

ומח’ הב’ דמאמר יהי רקיע במדה”ד דמל’ הוא בחי’ כלי מוחין למדה זו כו’

And the thought of the second utterance of “Let there be a firmament” is in the attribute of judgment (Gevurah) of Malchut, and is the aspect of the vessel for the intellect of this attribute etc.

וכך בכל ו’ המדות דמל’ בחי’ המח’ שבהם הוא בחי’ כלי המוחין שלהם

The same applies to all the six emotive attributes of Malchut; that their aspect of thought is the vessel for the intellect that they contain.

ובחי’ כלים דחג”ת נה”י כו’ הוא בחי’ דבור שבדבור שזהו עד”מ אותיות דבר החסד או הדין שבדבור עצמו

And the aspect of the vessels for ChaGa”T and NeHi”Y etc, which is the aspect of speech of speech, can be compared to the letters of the kindness or judgment of the speech itself.

שבדבר וגזירת מלך יש בו מג’ אלה חסד דין ורחמים בחי’ חג”ת והוא דבר מלך בדבור באותיות ממש

This is because the word and decree of the king contains these three attributes of kindness, judgment and mercy, i.e. the aspect of ChaGa”T, and this comes into the word of the King in actual speech and letters.

והחכמה והמדות שמתגלה בו הוא בחי’ הצורה שבדבור שנק’ רוח ממללא נפש המדברת כו’ כידוע

Now, the wisdom and emotions which become revealed in it are the aspect of the form (Tzurah) of speech, which is called the Speaking Spirit (Ruach Memalela) or the Soul which Speaks (Nefesh HaMedaberet) etc.,[11] as known,

ובחי’ המעשה שבדבור שהוא כלי נה”י כו’ היינו מה שבא בדבור ציווי אל המעשה בפו”מ כמו ויאמר אלקים יהי כן בפו”מ

and the aspect of action of speech which is the vessel for NeHi”Y etc., is when the speech comes to give a command for actual actualization, such as “and G-d said, and it was so” in actuality.

כמו שהמלך מצוה לעשות דבר בפו”מ שתחלה גוזר אומר בדבר המשפט שנק’ דבר וגזרת המלך שכלול מחג”ת

For example, when a king commands for something to actually be done it first begins with a decree in the words of his judgment which are called the word and decree of the king, which include [the attributes of] ChaGa”T.

ואח”כ בא הפסק דין אל הציווי במעשה שנק’ בחי’ נה”י

Afterwards the final ruling comes to a command to be actualized, which is called the aspect of NeHi”Y,

ובחי’ כלי דנה”י זה הוא אותיות הדבור שמצוה רק לעשות

and the aspect of the vessel for this NeHi”Y is the letters of speech [themselves], wherein he simply commands it to be done.

 (וכן עקימת שפתיו דהוי מעשה שנק’ עשי’ שבדבור ג”כ הענין הוא מה שנחתך הדבור לבוא לידי פו”מ שהפה גומר לפי שיש דבור שאינו למעשה עדיין כו’)

(Similarly, the movement of the lips[12] is also [considered to be] an action and is called action of speech as well, for the essence of the matter is that the mouth cuts the words of speech to come forth in actuality and completion, as there is also speech which is not yet for action etc.)

וז”ש ויאמר אלקים יהי אור ורקיע במעשה דוקא

This refers to G-d saying “Let there be light” and “[let there be] a firmament” specifically in action.

ובחי’ המעשה שנפעל מזה הדבור כמ”ש ויהי אור וכה”ג כדבר מלך שנעשה מזה הפועל ממש הוא ענין מל’ דמל’ דאצי’


Now the aspect of the action which resulted from this speech, as written, “And there was light” and the like, is like when the word of the king is really actualized, and this is the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Atzilut.


שאין זה רק בבוא שפע אור בבחי’ מקור התהוות יש מאין ממש כו’


This is only when the influence and light comes forth to be an aspect of a source for actual creation of something from nothing etc.


והיינו בחי’ מל’ דמל’ דאצי’ שבוקע המסך להיות מקור לבריאה כמשי”ת וד”ל

This is the aspect of Malchut of Malchut of Atzilut which penetrates the screen to become a source for Briyah-creation, as will be explained, and this will suffice for the understanding.

 (וגם הוא עדיין בבחי’ אצי’ ונק’ בחי’ עשי’ שבמל’ דאצי’


(However, this too is still in the aspect of Atzilut and is called the aspect of Asiyah-action of Malchut of Atzilut.

 עד”מ כח הפעולה הנבדלת מכח הפועל דגם שכח הפועל בחי’ כח המעשה הוא אבל מה שיוצא מכחו בנפעל בחי’ מל’ דמל’ הוא כמ”ש במ”א(

For example, this is like the power in the action which is separated from the power of the one who acts, for although the power of the one who acts is an aspect of the power of actualization, nevertheless, the power that comes out from his power into the acted upon, is the aspect of Malchut of Malchut, as is explained elsewhere.)
