150) “They will take a donation for Me” is the unification of above, ZA, and of below, Malchut in a single collective. “For Me” is ZA, and “Donation” is Malchut. It does not say “Take a donation,” but “Take a donation for Me,” which implies in one collective above and below without any separation.
151) “From every man whose heart moves him.” This verse should have said, “Every man”; what is, “From every man”? It is for those who sit on the judgment throne. Happy are the righteous who know how to aim their hearts’ desire for the upper, holy King, and all their hearts’ desire is not for this world and for its idle lust, but they know and exert to aim their desire for clinging above, to extend their Master’s will in them from above downward.
152) From which place do they take their Master’s will to extend it to them? They take from a high and holy place, from which all are holy wills. This is “Every man, righteous, Yesod de ZA, who is called “every” [or “all”], as it is written, “The advantage of a land in everything,” and as it is written, “Therefore I esteem right all Your precepts concerning everything.” “Man,” a righteous man, is righteous, the master of the house, Yesod, the master of Malchut, who is called “house.” His will is always to the queen, Malchut, as a husband who always loves his wife. “His heart moves him” means that he loves her. His heart is his queen, Malchut, who is called “heart.” “Moves him” means to cling to Him.
153) And even though they have great love for one another and they never part, still, “From every man,” meaning Yesod, the master of the house, the queen’s husband, “You shall raise My donation,” Malchut. It is customary that if there is an attempt to take a woman from her husband, he is vigilant and does not leave her. But the Creator is not so, as it is written, “And this is the donation,” meaning the Assembly of Israel, Malchut, that despite all her love for Him and His love for her, she is taken from Him to be among them, from a high place, where every love between a wife and her husband is present, Yesod. From there “You shall raise My donation.” Happy are Israel and happy are all who are rewarded with it.
154) “This is the donation which you shall take from them.” But should it not have said, “That you shall take from him,” from Yesod? What is the meaning of “From them”? It is from the two names, Yesod and Malchut together, that he will not take it from herself, but from the two of them together. This is why it is written “From them.”
155) “From them” is spelled as “From Mem” [in Hebrew], meaning the upper world, NHYM de Bina, YESHSUT, the residence of that righteous, Yesod de Bina, who is crowned with the letter Samech, upper AVI, HBD HGT de Bina, from which he receives life to feed all the worlds. They receive the donation, Malchut, from Yesod de Bina, and it is all one thing. The secret is handed down to the wise, happy are they.
AVI is called Samech, YESHSUT is called Mem. ZA in Gadlut inherits these Mochin and there are those two kinds of Mochin in his Rosh—Samech and Mem. Malchut having to be taken from Yesod means from Yesod de Bina in the Rosh of ZA, from which he takes the Malchut de GAR. It is written about it, “Which you shall take from them,” which is the letters of “From Mem.”
156) And even though they take the Malchut, they can take her only with permission from her husband, ZA, and by his will. Work of love for him should be done, and then with his love “You shall take My donation,” Malchut. All this is done with these works of the prayer and the correction that Israel establish each day. Another interpretation: “From them” means from all the upper VAK de ZA. This is why it is written, “From them,” in plural.
157) “From them” means you shall take her from all the occasions and the Sabbaths, and it is all one. They are what is written, “Gold and silver and bronze, and azure and purple, and scarlet.” Gold is the day of the beginning of the year [Rosh Hashanah], the day of gold, judgment day, when the left governs, as it is written, “From the north comes gold.” Silver is Yom Kippur [Day of Atonement], when Israel’s iniquities are made white as snow, as it is written, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” The color of silver is also white, and it is written, “For on this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you.”
158) Bronze is the day of the offerings of the festival, the Merkavot [chariots/assemblies] of idol-worshipping nations for which we sacrifice seventy oxen, and which are called “mountains of bronze.” This is the reason why the oxen of the festival are reduced each day. Azure is Passover, when the faith, Malchut, governs. This is an intimation of Dinim, since Techelet [azure] comes from the word Kelaya [extinction]. She does not govern until she annihilated and killed all the firstborn of Egypt, as it is written, “And the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians.” This is why all the colors are good in dreams except for azure.
159) Purple is Shavuot [feast of weeks], since the written Torah was given on it. It consists of right and left, as it is written, “On his right was a fiery law.” Purple consists of many colors. Scarlet is the 15th of Av, when the daughters of Israel would go out in scarlet garments, as it is written, “Those reared in scarlet.”
160) Thus far corresponding to VAK: gold, silver, bronze, azure, purple, and scarlet. Henceforth it is the ten penitential days, which are “And six, and goats, ram skins dyed red, sealskins, acacia-wood, oil for lighting, perfumes for the anointing oil and for fragrant incense, onyx stones, and setting stones.” Thus far they are nine, opposite nine days, and Yom Kippur complements ten.
161) We take the donation of the Lord, meaning Malchut, from all of them, as it is written, “This is the donation which you shall take from them” on all the festivals, to instill it upon us. On Rosh Hashanah [festival of the first day of the year], we take the donation of the Lord which comes from the side of gold, Gevura, since Malchut is Gevura. We take her on Yom Kippur because the daughter, Malchut, inherits the mother, Bina, who is called Yom Kippur. We take her on Sukkot because she is a Sukkah [shelter with a roof of branches and leaves] that covers and protects us, as it is written, “On the eighth day you shall have an assembly, and this is the donation of the Lord, the Malchut, who is called “assembly.”
162) We take her on Passover, the color of azure light. We take her on Shavuot, and she is the two breads. It is written in the occasion of the giving of the Torah, “And God spoke all these words, saying,” and we take the oral Torah from the written Torah, Malchut. On the 15th of Av Malchut stands joyfully over the daughters of Israel, and the rest of the days are for the correction of the Malchut. This is why it is written, “Which you shall take from them,” in plural.
