Cold Water on a Weary Soul

141) Solomon brought forth to the world three books of wisdom, and all are in sublime Hochma, opposite HBD. Song of Songs corresponds to Hochma [wisdom], Ecclesiastes corresponds to Tevuna [intelligence], and Proverbs corresponds to Daat [knowledge]. They are three lines.

All those readings are in two manners, speaking of two issues, the two lines—right and left. When looking in the readings, the two issues are included in one another. This is why Solomon is tantamount to Daat, the middle line. Thus, all his words are in three lines, and his books are also divided into three lines, HBD.

142) “Cold water on a weary soul and good news from a faraway land.” This verse, its beginning is not its end, and its end is not its beginning. They are two separate matters. When looking at it, they are included in one another, whether from its end to its beginning or from its beginning to its end. “Cold water on a weary soul” is a certain matter, and “Good news from a faraway land” is a certain matter. They are included in one another because both are contentment, and this is the middle line that includes both matters.

144) “Cold water on a weary soul” is the Torah. Anyone who has been rewarded with engaging in the Torah and satiating his soul with it, it is written, “And good news from a faraway land.” The Creator declares several benefits for him, to benefit him in this world and in the next world, as it is written, “And good news.” From which place is it good? “From a faraway land,” for initially, the Creator was far from him, for he was hateful of him at first, as it is written, “And the earth shall rise up against him.” From that place he is greeted, as it is written, “From a faraway land.” It is also written, “From afar the Lord appeared unto me. I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I have drawn you with mercy.”
