The Righteous Shall Flourish Like the Palm-Tree

264) “The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree.” “The righteous … as a palm-tree” because of all the trees in the world, there is none who is so delayed in its blooming as the palm tree, for it rises over seventy years. And why is the righteous compared to a palm tree?

265) But “The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree” is said about the exile in Babylon, when Divinity returned to her place only after seventy years, as it is written, “For thus says the Lord, ‘When seventy years have been completed for Babylon, I will visit you.’” This is “The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree,” that male and female rise over seventy years. The righteous is the Creator, who returned to Babylon after seventy years, as it is written, “For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness,” and it is written, “The Lord is righteous,” and, “Say to the righteous that it will be good.” Thus, the Creator is called “righteous.”

266) “He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” A cedar is the Creator, as it is written, “Excellent as the cedars.” “Shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon,” and Lebanon means upper Eden, Hochma, of which it is written, “Neither has an eye seen a God but You.” And a cedar, which is ZA, will grow in that high place, when it rises there.

267) In the last exile, the Creator is as a cedar whose blooming and growing is detained. From the time He rises until He is established in His persistence, to the time when redemption occurs, it is a day, and a day of the Creator is a thousand years. And the beginning of the second day, until it casts a shade in the light of the day—after midday, when the sun begins to set in the day of the Creator—it is five hundred years later. Thus, redemption will come after one thousand five hundred years.

And a cedar rises only when the water is refined, as it is written, “As cedars beside the waters.” Similarly, the cedar will grow in Lebanon, since from there—from Lebanon, which is Hochma—a fountain, a river comes out, meaning Bina, to water the cedar. And this cedar is the Creator, who is ZA, who receives the watering, as it is written, “Excellent as the cedars.”

268) Planted in the house of God is for the time of the Messiah King. In the courtyards, our God will cause him to flourish, in the revival of the dead. “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age,” on the day when the world is ruined, in the seventh millennium. “They shall be full of sap and fresh,” after the world is rebuilt in the new heaven and new earth. Then, “The Lord will rejoice in His works,” and all that, “To declare that the Lord is upright, my Rock, in whom there is no unrighteousness.”
