A Small Hey and a Big Hey

382) Why was he not called Abraham thus far? Thus far, he was still not circumcised, and now he has been circumcised. And once he has been circumcised, he connected with this letter, Hey, which is Divinity, and Divinity was in him. This is the reason why now he is called Abraham, with a Hey.

383) “These are the generations of the heaven and the earth when they were created.” We learned—Be Hibaram [when they were created] and Be Avraham [in Abraham]. This means that the world was created for Abraham. Why are they disputed in the interpretation that Be Hibaram implies to Avraham? One says that Be Hibaram implies to Avraham, who is Hesed, that the world was created for Hesed, and one says that Be Hibaram implies to Divinity, since the Hey implies to Divinity. But it is without question that if there is Hesed in the world, Divinity is in the world, as well, and vice versa. Hence, the two meanings—Hesed and Divinity—are one thing, and the world was created for Hesed, as well as for Divinity.

384) What is the difference between the small Hey in Be Hibaram and the big Hey, as it is written, “Do you thus repay the Lord?” The small Hey is Shmita [remission of cultivation every 7th year], Malchut, and the big Hey is Yovel [50th year anniversary], Bina. Thus, at times, the moon is full and at times, she is flawed. When she dresses the Bina—at which time she is the big Hey—she is full, and before she dresses the Bina, she is a small Hey, flawed. The difference between the small and big Hey is easily apparent in the moon’s face.
