92) “But if a priest’s daughter becomes a widow or divorced, and has no child and returns to her father’s house as in her youth, she shall eat of her father’s bread.” Happy are Israel more than all the idol worshipping nations, for when the Creator created the world He created it only for Israel so they would receive the Torah on Mount Sinai and be completely purified, and they would be righteous before Him.

93) When this world was completed in Israel as it is above, like the upper ZON, and Adam was set firm in the earth and his height reached the height of the heaven, the Creator wished to complete the holy soul from above downwards so they would unite and tie to one another—the soul in the body and the body in the soul. It is written about that, “Then the Lord God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life,” so they would be connected to each other and be as whole as above, and he would correct himself to be so.

94) This is why He created him male and female, so he would be whole. And when is man considered as whole as above? It is when he unites with his mate in unity and gladness and willingness, and a son and daughter came out of him and his wife. Then man is as whole as above, and completes below like the High, Holy Name. This is so because YodHey are AVI and VavHey are son and daughter, and then he is called by the name of the High, Holy Name.

95) A man who does not wish to complete the Holy Name below, to bear a son and a daughter, it would be better for him that he were not born, since he has no part at all in the Holy Name. When the soul departs him, it does not unite within him with the Holy Name at all, since he diminished the form of his Master, as he does not establish His form after him, which is the image of God, until it is completely connected and corrected.

96) It is written, “But if a priest’s daughter becomes a widow or divorced, and has no child.” “A priest’s daughter” is the holy soul called “a king’s daughter.” This is so because the holy soul emerges from the Zivug of the king and queen, ZA and Malchut. Thus, as the body below is male and female, the soul with the body above are male and female—the soul is the female and the body is the male.

It is written, “If [she] becomes a widow,” meaning that the soul is widowed from the body to which it bonded because it died. “Or divorced,” meaning that she has been expelled from that part of the Holy Name because she has no seed, by which she can be as above, connected to the Holy Name. Hence, “[She] returns to her father’s house.” She returns to correct herself as she was prior to her descent into the body. Then, “[She] returns to her father’s house,” which is the Creator, “As in her youth,” meaning as in the beginning. After she is corrected, “She shall eat of her father’s bread,” meaning she will delight herself in the King’s pleasures.

97) Henceforth, “No stranger is to eat the holy gift.” A stranger is one who did not erect the Holy Name below, who did not bear a son and a daughter, and who has no share in Him. “[No stranger] is to eat the holy gift” means he has no part in the upper pleasure, where there is eating, as it is written, “Eat, friends,” eating of above, the pleasure of the Creator. This pleasure resides where the pleasure is present when the scent of the offering comes up.
