The Sound of the Rolling Wheel

507) The sound of the rolling wheel rolls from below upwards. Hidden Merkavot [structures/chariots] go and roll. The sound of melodies rises and falls, wanders and roams the world; the sound of the Shofar [ram’s horn] stretches through the depth of the degrees and orbits around the wheel.

The Mochin come out in three places one at a time. They are called “the three points—HolamShurukHirik,” and they are the three lines—right, left, and middle. Also, they shine by rolling in three places, in which they walk and roll one at a time. Hence, their mode of illumination is called “rolling.”

These three points are included in one another, hence there are three points in the Holam—the right line, three points in the Shuruk—the left line, and three points in the Hirik—the middle line. It follows that there is rolling in each of the three lines. Here The Zohar speaks of the three lines in Hirik, the middle line, which is ZA, which is called “Voice.” This is why it refers to them as “three voices.”

The sound of the wheel rolls from below upwards. This means that the rolling is from the right line to the left line. Yet, the illumination of the left is only from below upwards, which is why it was said, “Rolling from below upwards.” However, before the left line connects with the right, its illuminations are shut, for it cannot shine without Hassadim. Afterwards, the left line rolls to the right line and the sound of melodies rises and falls, meaning the abundance of pleasantness and Hassadim that appears from the right line and shines from above downwards, too. This is why it was said, “Walks and wanders in the world.”

Subsequently, it rolls from the right line to the middle line. ZA is the middle line, called “the voice of the Shofar.” It extends and comes out on the Masach de Hirik, which is Dinim, at the depth of the Dinim, and it is the essence that completes and discloses the illumination of the three lines, and mainly what orbits around the wheel, uniting the three lines in one another.

508) Two rakes sit, meaning forces that extend from the right and from the left, appointed to punish and to reward. They are in two colors—white and red—mingled in each other, and both turn a wheel above. When it turns to the right, the white goes up. When it turns to the left, the red goes down. The wheel turns constantly and never stops. They orbit the wheel, meaning the three lines, according to the actions of the lower ones. If they are righteous, the force on the right turns the wheel, and the white, Hassadim, rises—to reward the righteous. If they are wicked, the force on the left turns the wheel and the red, the Din [judgment], descends and punishes the wicked.

509) Two birds, HB de Nukva, rise when they tweet, one to the south, Hochma, and one to the north, Bina. They fly in the air, meaning shine in VAK de HB, since VAK are called “air.” The tweeting of the birds, Nukva, and the sound of the melodies of the wheel—ZA—unite, and then it is a psalm, a song for the Sabbath day.

At that time, during their Zivug, the lights that are detailed in the psalm—the song for the Sabbath day—illuminate. Then, all the blessings, Hochma, extend in a whisper and clothe the melodies of the wheel, which is the right line of ZAHassadim, out of the love of the voice of the Shofar—the middle line of ZA. The middle line, the voice of the Shofar, unites the two lines, and Hochma does not shine before she dresses in Hassadim. It is considered that she is extended in a whisper and is not heard. Afterward they are heard, when she dresses in the melodies of the wheel.

510) To receive these blessings, for Hochma to clothe in Hassadim, the blessings, Hochma, descend from above downwards and are concealed together in the depth of the well, Nukva, who cannot shine without Hassadim. The fountain of the well does not stop being in a whisper, meaning it does not shine, until that turning wheel—the middle line—is full, meaning the main one that orbits the wheel. When the middle line, the turning wheel, continues and fills with HesedHochma dresses in the Hassadim of the middle line and shines in full, and she is no longer in a whisper.

511) Those two rakes roll. The one on the right, which rolls the three lines under the dominion of the right, called out loud and said, “The illumination of the lights that rise and fall.” This is so because being right, its illumination descends from above downwards. Two thousand worlds—HB, which are called “thousands,” extending from the two lines, right and left—illuminated. The middle world within them, Daat, which extends from the middle line, illuminates the light of your master. All those with eyes, who are worthy of attaining Hochma, look and open your eyes, and you will be rewarded with that light, that subtleness.

These are the blessings that extend from above. One who is rewarded, the wheel rises and rolls to the right, bringing the illumination of the three lines that are dominated by the right, and lowers and extends to the one who was rewarded, and is refined by those upper blessings that shine. Happy are those who have been rewarded with them.

512) When he is not rewarded, the wheel rolls and the rake on the left, rolls it, bringing illumination of the lines that are dominated by the left, bringing the light down and extending illumination of the left from above downwards. By that, it extends Din on the one who was not rewarded and a voice comes out. Woe unto the wicked from the left, who were not rewarded. A flame of fire comes out, burning and lingering over the head of the wicked. Happy are those who walk on the path of truth in this world, to be rewarded with that upper light, the blessings of the purity, as it is written, “Saturate your soul with purity.”
