Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

141) “Blessed be the name of the Lord.” He is blessed means His beginning is hard and His end is soft, since Mevorach [blessed] has the letters of Mem-Bet and Reish-Chaf [the spelling of Rach (“soft”)].

Mem-Bet is hard, Din, like the beginning of the year. It is Mem-Bet because the world was created in Mem-Bet (42) letters, meaning in Lamed-Bet (32) Elokim, and in ten utterances, which are Mem-Bet [42]. Also, there are Mem-Bet letters from the Bet of Beresheet through the Bet of the word “and Bohu” [“and void”]. This is why it was created in Din.

All the beginnings are hard and their ends are soft. This is so because on Rosh Hashanah [the beginning of the year], Mem-Bet is in harsh Din; on the day of Shemini Atzeret it is Sof in gladness.

Nukva was built entirely from the left line. Her entire correction is to be included in the Hassadim in the right. Hence, in the Rosh of the Nukva, which is Mem-Bet, the left is still not included in the right. This is why she is hard, since there is Dinim of the left in her, without right.

Reish-Chaf, the end of the Nukvais already entirely mingled with Hassadim, on the day of Shemini Atzeret, and then it is soft, in gladness, as it is written, “Blessed be the name of the Lord.” The name of the Lord, which is Nukva, called “name,” will be MemBet ReishChaf [letters of Mevorach—blessed]. MemBet indicates the Rosh of the Nukva, where it is Rosh Hashanah, and then it is hard. Rach [ReishChaf, soft], indicates the Shemini Atzeret.

142) What is the connection between the upper Din, the left line of Bina, Isaac, male light, and the Din of the Nukva? In the upper Din in the male, which shines from above downwards, the beginning and the end are hard, and there is none who can withstand these Dinim. Anything that goes and continues grows stronger, and after it begins, it does not leave it until it eats and consumes everything and nothing is left.

But in the other Din, below in Malchut, which is female light, who shines from below upwards, the beginning is hard, on Rosh Hashanah, and anything that goes and expands grows weaker, until the Mochin de Panim shine in Shemini Atzeret. This is similar to a female, whose strength weakens.

143) When did the Din of above, from the male, awaken to be on the world? On the day of the flood. This is why at that time, nothing was left in the world except for Noah’s ark. This is like the upper ark, the Malchut, which tolerates that fierceness of the Din, since she is fire that tolerates fire. If the Creator had not prepared the ark for him, and he was in mercy over the world, the whole world would have perished, as it is written, “The Lord sat enthroned at the flood,” since the name HaVaYaH is Rachamim [mercy]. For this reason, henceforth, the upper Din does not stay on the world, since the world would not be able to tolerate it for even a moment.
