308) The spirit of Tuma’a is the evil serpent. SAM rides it, and they are male and female, which are called “these.” They are present in the world in all their Behinot. The spirit of holiness is called “That” [in female form], which is the covenant, the holy impression that is always with the man, Ateret Yesod. It is also called “this” [in male form], as it is written, “This is the Lord.” It is also written, “This is my God.” However, they are called “these,” as it is written, “These are your gods, Israel,” and it is written, “These may forget, as well,” relating to the deed with the calf, and “I,” which is “this,” will not forget you.

It is written, “For these I weep,” since the sin of the calf, which is called “these,” caused them to cry. The sin of the calf is called “these” because the letters ELEH [these] are Bina and TM that fell from each degree to the degree below it, where KH that remained in the degree are MI of Elokim, and Bina and TM that fell are ELEH of Elokim. However, afterwards they returned to the degree and became the left line. Then, through the middle line, the letters ELEH reunited with the letters MI, and the name Elokim was completed. Yet, the sin of the calf was that they clung only to the left line and did not want the middle line.

It follows that the letters ELEH, which are left, did not bond with the letters MI on the right, to complete the name Elokim, but caused separation in the name Elokim because they took only the left line, which is ELEH [these]. Thus, the whole sin of the calf was because they separated the letters ELEH from Elokim and took them for themselves, as it is written, “These are your gods, Israel.” This is also the sin of the tree of knowledge, that SAM and the serpent seduced her into separating ELEH from Elokim, which is why they are called “these.”

309) “For these I weep,” since permission was given to the place called “these” to rule over Israel and destroy the Temple. “I weep” is the holy spirit, Malchut, who is called “I.”

310) But it is written in admonition, “Are these the words of the covenant?” Of course. And here, too, it relates to the Sitra Achra, since all those curses exist only out of “these,” where all the curses are found. The Sitra Achra is cursed, as it is written, “You are more cursed than all beast.” For this reason, he first said, “These,” which stands over those who transgressed against the words of the covenant, as it is written, “These are the commandments that the Lord commanded Moses.” It is so because the Mitzvot [commandments] of the Torah are to purify a man so he will not stray to this path of “these,” and will be safeguarded from them and part from them. And it is written, “These are the commandments,” for the commandments come to purity “these.”

311) “These are the generations of Noah.” There, too, was the Sitra Achra, since Ham, Canaan’s father, came out, and it is written, “Cursed be Canaan.” This is why it is written “These,” for he is cursed.

312) For this reason, all those are fusion of waste of the gold. Aaron offered gold, which is his side, in relation to him being included in the power of the fire when the right is included in the left. For this reason, Aaron, who is right, was included in the left, the power of the fire, and the left side is gold and fire.
