A King Who Becomes Servant to a Field

13) “And the life of Sarah was.” Why is there a difference, that of all the women in the world, her death was mentioned in the Torah and their death was not mentioned in the Torah? But it is written, “And Rachel died,” “And Miriam died there.”

14) It is not written of any of them as it is written of Sarah. “And the life of Sarah was a hundred and twenty and seven years; these were the years of the life of Sarah.” Thus, neither of them counted days and years as with Sarah. No special portion is written for any of them as it is for Sarah, since she is the degree that all of man’s days and years depend on, meaning on these Mochin, which are the life of Sarah, implied in the numbers 100 years and twenty years and seven years, which are the span of man’s life.

15) “The profit of a land” is Nukva. “In every way” is Yesod de ZA, since the spirits, the souls, and the benefit of the world stem from Yesod. “A King who becomes servant to a field.” The king is the Creator. He “becomes servant to the field” when it is properly established. The upper King is ZA, when he connects to the field when it is cultivated. “A field which the Lord has blessed,” meaning the Nukva, as it is written, “As the scent of a field which the Lord has blessed.” This is so because after it is sufficiently cultivated and corrected, the upper King, ZA, connects with it.

16) The King is Divinity, which dwells in a man’s home, to be corrected in it when a man is married and mates with his wife to procreate and to bear fruits. And Divinity educes souls to place them in her. This is why she connects only to a field that has been cultivated.

17) A king is a woman who fears the Lord, as it is written, “A woman who fears the Lord, she will be praised,” referring to Divinity. “Servant to a field” is a strange woman, the Sitra Achra, as it is written, “To protect you from a strange woman,” for there is a field and there is a field. There is a field that all the blessings and sanctities are in it, as it is written, “As the scent of a field which the Lord has blessed,” which is Divinity. And there is a field that every ruin, impurity, destruction, killing, and war is in it, which is the Sitra Achra.

At times, this king, Divinity, serves that field, the Sitra Achra, as it is written, “Under three things the earth quakes,” “And a handmaid that is heir to her mistress.” The field of the Sitra Achra will inherit the Divinity, and then this king, who his Divinity, her light will be covered and darken until she is purified and connects to ZA above.

18) This is why there is the male goat at the beginning of the month, for then that field—the Sitra Achra—separates from the holy King, Divinity, and the blessings are absent from that field, the Sitra Achra. But when it serves that field, the Sitra Achra, it is written, “For he found her in the field,” meaning Divinity, “The engaged girl cried out, but there was no one to save her,” since “In the field” means the Sitra Achra.

19) Eve came to the world and was attached to that serpent, who cast filth in her and she caused death to the world and to her husband. Sarah came and descended to the place of the Sitra Achra and rose, and the Klipot did not cling to her, as it is written, “And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had.” When Noah came to the world, what does it say? “And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered.”

20) And because Abraham and Sarah were not adhered to the Sitra Achra, Sarah was rewarded with the upper life, for her, for her husband, and for her sons after her. And it is written, “Look to the rock from which you were hewn,” meaning Abraham, “And to the quarry from which you were dug,” Sarah. This is why it is written, “And the life of Sarah was” [in plural form in Hebrew], since she was rewarded with all of them, all the years. And this is not written of all the women, for it is not written, “And the life of Eve was,” and similarly in all of them, for she was attached to life, hence life is hers.
