    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 

    https://watchmenfromisraelinjerusalem.com/ for everyone to hold it free:

    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 54


ולהבין דרך פרט בהשתלשלות דאזלעו”ז כו’ בע”ס דקליפה דאבי”ע כו’ הנה יש להקדים בשרש בחי’ הקליפה מהו

Now, in order to understand the chaining down of the “opposite side” in a detailed manner etc, in regard to the ten Sefirot of the husks of Kelipah of Atzilut, Briyah, Yetzirah and Asiyah etc, we must first precede with the root of the aspect of Kelipah-husks and understand what it is.

דהנה ידוע בטעם שם קליפה כמו קליפת הפרי שהוא הפסולת שבכל דבר שבא מצד תערובת טו”ר כו’ מסיבת שבה”כ כו’ ז’ מלכים שמתו ונפלו למטה כו’

Now, it is known that the reason it is called by the name Kelipah-husks, is because it is likened to the husk of a fruit, which is the dross of each thing that comes about because of the admixture of good and bad etc. due to the shattering of the vessels etc. of the seven kings [of Tohu] who died and fell down etc.

וקליפה קדמה לפרי כמו בצמיחת כל פרי שהקליפה תצמח תחלה וכמו השליא לולד שהוא בא מן הפסולת שבטיפה כו’

The husk precedes the fruit,[1] just as in the growth of any fruit, the peel always grows first. This is like the relationship of placentas to the fetus, which comes about from the dross which is in the seminal drop etc.

ושרש הדברים ידוע דגם בבחי’ התענוג יש בחי’ המנגד אליו שהוא הצער היפך הענג והוא נגע היפך אותיות ענג )ופשע היפך אותיות שפע כו’)

Now, the root of these matters is known; that even within the aspect of pleasure there is the aspect of its opposition. This is pain which is the opposite of pleasure, just as the letters Nega-plague-נגע are the opposite of the letters Oneg-pleasure-ענג.[2] (Similarly, Pesha-transgression-פשע is the opposite letters of Shefa-abundance-שפע.[3])

כי כל דבר מה שבא בבחי’ התפשטות מן העצם ודאי יש כח המנגד אליו שבא ג”כ מן העצם

This is because certainly everything that comes into an aspect of spreading forth from the essence has its opposing power, which also comes from the essence.

ע”כ גם בבחי’ התפשטות אור התענוג והרצון יש כח היפוכו המנגדו שהוא עד”מ כאשר ימנעו לאותו תענוג או שיהיה דבר המנגד היפך העונג הוא שנק’ צער ויסורין כו’

Therefore, even the aspect of the spreading forth of the light of pleasure and desire has an opposing power that opposes it. For example, this is when he is prevented from delighting in that pleasure. Likewise, if there is something in opposition which is the opposite of that pleasure, it would be called pain and suffering etc.

וכן ממילא בחכמה וטעם לתענוג ורצון יש המנגד להיות טעם למנגד לרצון וכן המדות ומדו”מ כו’ וכמו עבד העובר ומנגד לרצון האדון הרי בכל פרטי הדברים שברצון זה מנגד כו’

Likewise, within the wisdom and reason for the pleasure and desire there automatically is an opposing reason that opposes the desire. This is likewise the case with emotions and thought, speech and action etc. This is like a servant who transgresses the will of his master. In doing so, he opposes all the particular matters that are included in the will [of his master] etc.

וכך אזלע”ז עשה כו’ שיהיה בחי’ מנגד והוא הנק’ פסולת וקליפה והסתר שקדם תחלה כו’

Similarly, [it states,[4]] “G-d made one thing opposite the other etc,” so that there should be an aspect of opposition. This is called the dross (Pesolet), the husk (Kelipah) and the concealment, which preceded at first etc.

והוא ע”י בחי’ הצמצום והסתר שקודם כל אור ושפע רצון ותענוג וחכמה כו’

This comes about by means of the aspect of Tzimtzum and concealment that precedes all light and influence of desire, pleasure and wisdom etc.

כמו מי יודע עוז אפיך וכיראתך עברתך כו’ שהוא בחי’ המנגד לרצון שם יתכן הכעס וחרון אף על בחי’ המנגד ועובר הרצון כו’ עד שחמת ה’ על ראש רשעים יחול5 כו’

This is like [the verse,[5]] “Who knows the strength of Your anger and Your wrath is like the fear due You etc.”  This is the aspect of the opposition to the desire. It is there that anger and wrath are applicable to those who oppose and transgress the will etc, until,[6] “The wrath of HaShem shall rest on the heads of the wicked etc.”

 (וכמ”ש במ”א בענין ברישא חשוכא ע”כ עזי אוה”ע מסגי ברישא כו’)

(This is as explained elsewhere regarding the matter of, “At first there was darkness [and then the light returned],” therefore,[7] “The insolent amongst the nations of the world are powerful at first etc.”)

והנה ידוע דעיקר השבירה בתערובות טו”ר ממש היה רק בבחי’ ס”ג7 שהוא בבחי’ ז”ת דבינה שהן בחי’ המדות שבשכל שמולידים המדות שבלב מדות רעים כמו כעס ורציחה ותאוה רעה ואהוי”ר רעים וניצוח והתפארות לרע כו’

Now, it is known that the principle shattering [which brought about] an admixture of actual good and evil, was in the aspect of Sa”G, which is the aspect of the seven lower Sefirot of Binah.  These are the aspect of the emotions of the intellect which give rise to the emotions of the heart, including bad emotions such as anger, murderousness, evil lusts, evil love and fear, conquest and boastfulness for [the sake of] evil etc.

אבל בחכמה לא היה שבירה רק חיצוניות דאו”א נפלו והוא שרש לחכמות חיצוניות

In Chochmah however there was no shattering.[8] Rather, the externality of Abba and Imma only fell,[9] this being the root of external wisdoms [and sciences].[10]

וגם הוא ענין אני חכמה שכנתי ערמה ארמי אובד אבי חכמה דקליפה שהוא רק לרע כמו חכמים המה להרע ולא להטיב כלל ואינו ענין חכמה בעצם רק ערמומית ושקר כידוע

Now, [in Chochmah] too there is the matter of [the verses],[11] “I am wisdom, I dwell with craftiness,” or,[12] “My father was [nearly] destroyed by the Aramite,” which refers to Chochmah of the Kelipah-husks which is only for wickedness sake, as in,[13] “They are wise to do evil” but not to do good whatsoever.  This is not true Chochmah-wisdom, but rather only craftiness and falsehood, as known.

וגם מבחי’ התענוג העליון ירד בחי’ החיצוניות וזהו שרש להתהוות תענוגי עוה”ז

Even from the aspect of the “Supernal Pleasure” the aspect of its externality was lowered.[14] This is the root for the existence of the pleasures of this world.

אבל עיקר הרע הוא במדות עד שנסתעפו למטה מטה בקליפה דעשיה המקטרגים הרעים לפעול רע בפו”מ שכל חיותם אינו רק להמית כמו שלוחי המות כו’

Nevertheless, the principle aspect of evil is in the emotions which branched far down into the husks – Kelipah of Asiyah. These are the wicked accusers who carry out actual evil, whose very [pleasure] in life is only to kill, like agents of death etc.

ולמטה בזה העולם הן המזיקים כנחשים וחיות שטורפים כו’ והרוצחים במין האדם

Below in this world, these are destructive creatures such as snakes or predatory beasts etc. whereas in mankind these are the murderers.

ולכך לע”ל שיבוער הרע כתיב לא ירעו ולא ישחיתו כו’ לפי שאז יובררו שיורי ז’ מלכים שלא נתבררו עדיין כידוע

Therefore, regarding the future to come when evil will be negated, it states,[15] “They shall not do evil or destroy etc,” because then the remnants of the seven kings [of Tohu] which have not yet been rectified will have been purified, as known.

ויש בחי’ ציור אדם באזלעו”ז דקליפה כו’ ונק’ אדם בליעל והוא בחי’ ז”א דקליפה כמו ויאבק איש עמו כו’

Now, in the “other side” of Kelipah there [also] is an aspect of the form of man.  He is called, Adam Bleeya’al – “Man without a yoke,” and is the aspect of Zeir Anpin of Kelipah, like it states,[16] “And there wrestled a man with him etc.”

בחי’ המדות עם המוחין דאו”א דקליפה עד בחי’ כתר וע”י דקליפה שנק’ עומק רע שהוא עומק הרצון והתענוג לכל דבר רע שהוא מקור לכל רצון רע ונק’ בזוהר כתרין דמסאבותא ובל’ הגמרא שערי טומאה כו’

This is the aspect of emotions with the intellect of Abba and Imma of the Kelipah-husks, including the aspect of Keter and Atik Yomin of Kelipah which is called the depth of evil (Omek Ra),[17] because it is the depth of the desire and pleasure for all wickedness, which is the source for all wicked desire.  In the Zohar these are called[18] the “Crowns of Impurity – Kitrin D’Mesavoota” and in the terminology of the Talmud they are called,[19] “The gates of impurity etc.”

ודרך כלל יש בחי’ ע”ס דק”נ באבי”ע

Now generally, there is the aspect of the ten Sefirot of Kelipat Nogah in [each world] of Atzilut, BriyahYetzirah and Asiyah.

אך בחי’ נוגה דאצי’ אין בו רע כלל וכמ”ש לא יגורך רע כו’ רק שהוא בחי’ היש המורגש ובולט ביותר כמו בחי’ החסד המורגש באדם להתפאר בו שהוא עושה דבר חסד או בחכמה מרגיש חכמתו ביותר וכך כל מדותיו ומעלותיו יודע ומרגיש בבחי’ בליטה גדולה

However, in the aspect of Nogah of Atzilut there is no evil whatsoever, as it states,[20] “Evil shall not dwell with You etc.”  However, it is the aspect of “being something” that is very pronounced and felt, such as the aspect of a person’s awareness of his own kindness, in that he glories in the kind deeds that he does. Similarly, in regard to Chochmah, this is when he is very aware of his own wisdom. The same holds true of all one’s attributes and positive qualities. He knows and is aware of them in a very pronounced way.

ובהסתעפות יוצא מזה בחי’ רע כמו המרגיש עצמו לחסדן יצא מזה הסתעפות חסד רק להתייהר ורק לגרמיה כמו חסד ישמעאל וכה”ג

What branches out as a result of this leads to an aspect of actual evil. For example, in one who feels himself to be kind there will branch out kindness that is only for his own self-aggrandizement and benefit, such as the kindness of Ishmael[21] and the like.

והוא דמיון להשתלשלות דנוגה דבריאה שנסתעף מנוגה דאצי’ שמיעוטה רע עכ”פ בבחי’ לגרמי’ ויוהרא דהתנשאות יש הנפרד כו’

This then is an example of the chaining down of Nogah of Briyah which branches out from Nogah of Atzilut, in that, all in all, it has a minority of evil[22] which is the aspect of doing something for one’s own benefit, with the pride and haughtiness of a “something” separate and apart [from G-d] etc.

 (וכמו שמהתלהבות הבולט בהרגשת עצמו בתפלה יכעס על המנגדו להכותו ולרודפו כשנוגע בכבודו)

(For example, because of fervor during prayer that is pronounced in that he is aware of himself, a person will become angered against anyone who opposes him, to the point of striking and pursuing him if his honor is slighted.)

וכך אמרו שטן ופנינה לש”ש נתכוונו שזהו בחי’ נוגה דאצי’ ונתן עיניו במקדש ראשון והחריבו זהו מבחי’ קנאה של נחש הקדמוני בחי’ יש ולגרמי’ בבחי’ רע קצת אעפ”י שקנאה זאת באה מצד הכרתו וקירובו כי כלום מתקנא כו’

Similarly, it states that[23] “Satan and Peninah’s intentions were for the sake of heaven” – which is the aspect of Nogah of Atzilut – yet “he set his eyes on the first Temple and destroyed it.”[24]  This was from the aspect of the envy of the primordial snake,[25] [which is] the aspect of “somethingness for the sake of oneself” with a minority of evil, even though this envy came about because of his recognition and closeness, as [it states,[26]] “Envy applies primarily [when the wise envies the wise, the mighty envies the mighty and the wealthy envies the wealthy] etc.”

ונוגה דיצי’ חציו רע לקטרג ממש כמו ויבא גם השטן כו’ ויאמר החנם ירא איוב כו’

Nogah of Yetzirah however, is half evil, with actual accusations as it states,[27] “And the Satan also came [amongst them] etc, and he said,[28] ‘does Iyov fear G-d without personal benefit etc?’”

עד בחי’ נוגה דעשי’ רובו רע לפעול כל דין קשה וזהו חיותו ממש ונק’ רצועא בישא לאלקאה כו’ כמו העלוק’ שמושכת פסולת הדם כו’ כך נאמר לעלוקה כו’ הב הב כו’ שזהו שרש הגיהנ’ שעל ראש רשעים יחול כו’ כידוע

[It then descends further] until the aspect of Nogah of Asiyah which is mostly evil to actualize every harsh judgment, which literally is its vitality. This is called,[29] “An evil whip with which to smite etc.”  Moreover, it is like a leech that draws out the dross of the blood etc, as it states,[30] “The leech has [two daughters called] give, give etc.”  This is the root of the aspect of hell (Gehenom) which will “rest upon the heads of the wicked.”[31]

וג’ קליפות הטמאות הן כמו נחש שרף ועקרב שבמדבר העמים

Now, the three impure Kelipot-husks are like the snake, serpent and scorpion in the “desert of the nations.”[32]

בחי’ כתר דקליפה שהן רע גמור בלי תערוב’ הטוב כלל וכלל וזהו הנק’ רשע ורע לו שאין להם בירור עדיין כלל רק לעתיד דכתי’ ואת רוח הטומאה אעביר לגמרי כו’ וכידוע וד”ל

[This is] the aspect of Keter of Kelipah which is completely evil without any admixture of good whatsoever. This is called[33] a “Rasha v’Ra Lo – A wicked one and has bad,” for which there as yet is no rectification whatsoever, but rather, only in the future, about which it states,[34] “I will – completely – remove the spirit of impurity” etc, as known.  This will suffice for the understanding.
