If You Walk in My Statutes

16) “If you walk in My statutes.” “In My statutes” is Malchut, the place upon which the sentences of the Torah depend, as it is written, “My statutes shall you keep.” Malchut is called “law.” The sentences of the Torah are included in her. “My ordinances shall you keep.” An ordinance is another, high place, ZA, to which that statute, Malchut, grips. Thus, upper and lower conjoin. The statutes in Malchut are in the ordinances in ZA, and all the Mitzvot [commandments] in the Torah and all the sentences in the Torah and all the sanctities in the Torah are gripped to these ZA and Malchut, since the written Torah is ZA and the oral Torah is Malchut.

17) Hence, “In My statutes” are all those sentences, Dinim [judgments], punishments, and the Mitzvot, which are in the place called “oral Torah,” Malchut, called “statute.” “My ordinances shall you keep” means in a place called “written Torah,” ZA, as it is written, “An ordinance of the God of Jacob”; ZA is called “Jacob.” And one is gripped to the other, and all is one. And this is the rule of the Holy Name, the unification of ZA and Malchut. And one who breaches the words of Torah, it is as though he breaches the Holy Name because law and ordinance is the name of the Creator. Hence, “If you walk in My statutes” is the oral Torah and “My ordinances shall you keep” is the written Torah. This is the whole of the Holy Name.

18) “And do them.” Since he already said “walk” and “keep,” why the “do,” as well? Indeed, one who performs the Mitzvot of the Torah and follows His ways, it is as though he made Him above. The Creator said, “It is as if he made Me.” Hence, “And do them,” as a law and ordinance, meaning ZA and Malchut. Because they are awakened by you, they can bond with one another so the Holy Name will be as it should be. Certainly, “And do them.”

19) Similarly, “And David got him a name.” But did David do it for Him? Rather, because David went in the ways of Torah, kept the Mitzvot of the Torah, and conducted the Malchut properly, he seemingly made the name above. And there was no other king in the world who was rewarded with it besides David. He would rise at midnight and praise the Creator until the Holy Name, Malchut, rose in its chair at daybreak. Hence, it is as though he actually made a name there, meaning raised them for Zivug with ZA, as it is written on the other side, “And the son of the Israelite woman blasphemed the Name, and cursed.” For this reason, “And David got him a name.” This is why it is said, “And do them.” If you try to do them, to correct the Holy Name as it should be, all those blessings above will be properly corrected in you.
