And Isaac Brought Her into the Tent

248) “And Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah.” It writes, “Into the tent” because Divinity, called “tent,” returned there. As long as Sarah was in the world, Divinity did not part with her and a candle was burning from the eve of the Sabbath to the eve of the Sabbath, and would burn all the days of the week. And after she died, the candle quenched. When Rebecca came, Divinity returned there and the candle was relit. It is written, “His mother Sarah,” since she resembled Sarah in all that she did.

249) “His mother Sarah,” since as the form of Isaac was like the form of Abraham, and anyone who saw Isaac said that it was Abraham and knew for certain that Abraham fathered Isaac, similarly, Rebecca’s form was just as Sarah’s. This is why it is written, “His mother Sarah,” since they said that Sarah must be Rebecca’s mother. Thus, the forms of Isaac and Rebecca were as the forms of Abraham and Sarah, and it was evident that Abraham was the progenitor of Isaac, and Sarah of Rebecca.

250) Even though Sarah had died, her form did not depart the house. However, she was not seen there since the day she died until the arrival of Rebecca. When Rebecca came, Sarah’s form appeared, as it is written, “And Isaac brought her into the tent,” and Sarah’s form appeared there at once. But only Isaac saw it when he walked in. This is why it is written, “And Isaac was comforted for his mother,” since his mother was seen and encountered him in the house. This is why it does not write “For the death of his mother” but “For his mother,” since for Isaac, she did not die at all.

251) “And he took Rebecca, and she became his wife, and he loved her.” But all the people in the world love their wives; what is the difference for which it writes specifically of Isaac, “And he loved her”?

252) The awakening of the male’s love toward the Nukva is only from the left line, as it is written, “Let his left hand be under my head.” And darkness—left line, night—and Nukva are as one, since the left always awakens the love toward the Nukva and grips her. Hence, even though Abraham loved Sarah, it does not say about him, “And he loved her,” but only about Isaac, since he is the left line of ZA.

And should you say that it is written, “And Jacob loved Rachel,” even though he is not the left line, he did this because Isaac’s side was integrated in him. Jacob is the middle line of ZA, which comprises the two lines, right and left, Abraham and Isaac. And because Isaac was integrated in him, it was possible to say about him that he loved, as with Isaac.

253) When Abraham, the right line of ZA, saw Sarah, Nukva de ZA, he only embraced her, as it is written, “And his right hand embrace me.” But Isaac, who is the left line of ZA, which is her husband, held her and put his arm under her head, as it is written, “Let his left hand be under my head.” Afterwards came Jacob, the middle line of ZA, and performed intercourse and begot twelve tribes.

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob imply the three lines of ZA. Similarly, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel imply the Nukva de ZA, the four Behinot [discernments] HB TM in her. ZA embraces the Nukva from his right line, “And his right hand embrace me,” the bestowal of Hassadim. He extends upon her GAR from his left line, as it is written, “Let his left hand be under my head,” when the Nukva says that she is given the Rosh [head] from the left of ZA, which are GAR. For this reason, the left of ZA is considered her primary giver. This is why it says that Isaac is her husband, because she receives GAR from him. And yet, there is no procreation except from the middle line, which is Jacob, and only from him were the souls of the tribes born.

254) All the patriarchs are in one, only in ZA. This is why they all engaged in four women, meaning each of them had four women—Sarah, Rebecca, Leah, and Rachel. This is so because they, too, are one—HB TM of the Nukva de ZA. Abraham had four wives, which are Sarah, Hagar, and two concubines, as it is written, “But unto the sons of the concubines that Abraham had.” It writes “concubines,” which means two. And with Sarah and Hagar they are four.

255) Isaac had four wives from the side of Rebecca, meaning they were included in Rebecca, as it is written, “And he took Rebecca,” which is one. “And she became his wife” is two; “And he loved her” is three; “And Isaac was comforted for his mother” is four.

Correspondingly, Jacob had four wives. And all of them—all twelve wives—are one, only the Nukva de ZA, in whom there are those twelve discernments.

256) Abraham and Isaac each engaged with one woman in holiness, since Hagar and the concubines were not from holiness. Abraham in Sarah and Isaac in Rebecca. And corresponding to them, Jacob had four wives, in both parts, which are sacred and secular, for Leah and Rachel were in the sacred part, and Bilhah and Zilpah were in the secular part, which he brought back to holiness.

Even Hagar and the concubines and the handmaids were all in holiness, for all twelve women were only twelve discernments of the Nukva, since it was all done in holiness and all is one, for all are included in the Nukva de ZA alone.
