Sin Crouches at the Door

460) “Sin crouches at the door.” “At the door,” the door of above, from which Dinim come out for the bad deeds of the people of the world. A door is as it is written, “Open for me the gates of Tzedek [justice],” the gates of Malchut, who is called Tzedek. The sin, the angel of death who is destined to avenge you, crouches at that door of Malchut.

461) Adam was born on Rosh Hashanah [(Hebrew) New Year’s Day] above and below, in ZON, who is called “the upper Adam,” and in the Adam of below. There is Rosh Hashanah above, ZON, when they are in Din, and there is Rosh Hashanah below, Rosh Hashanah when it is the sixth day of the creation of the world, in which the lower Adam was created. By that he tells us that Adam was created in Din because he was created on Rosh Hashanah of below, which extends from its corresponding Behina above, from Rosh Hashanah of above, ZON during the Din.

On Rosh Hashanah, the barren are visited. How do we know it was on Rosh Hashanah? Because it is written, “And the Lord visited Sarah.” “The Lord” indicates that the visiting was on Rosh Hashanah, since wherever it is said, “And the Lord,” it indicates ZA and his courthouse, which is Rosh Hashanah of above.

And because Adam was born on Rosh Hashanah, he was born in Din, and at time when the world stands in Din. Hence, of course sin crouches at the door, who is the angel of death, to avenge you, as it is written, “And unto you is its desire,” meaning of the angel of death, to punish you until he destroys you.

462) “Sin crouches at the door, and unto you is its desire, and you will rule over it,” as it is written, “And you preserve them all,” meaning Malchut, called “You preserve all,” even the Klipot. Thus, the Creator does not control, meaning His dominion is not revealed unless when the wicked of the world are destroyed. For this reason, when the angel of death destroys them, the Creator will rule over it and will not let it harm the world because it is written, “And you,” which is Malchut, “will rule over it.”

That is, Malchut will rule over the angel of death after he has already executed judgment against the wicked, and will no longer let it harm the people of the world. The words “And you” in the verse, “And you will rule over it,” are the name of the Malchut.

463) The governance is in the connection of the dispute to sentence them and to keep the Din. “And you will rule over it” means that Malchut reveals her governance through the angel of death, as he punishes the sinners. Also, “You will rule over it” by repentance. If he repents, he will rule over the evil inclination and the angel of death.
