369) After Cain and Abel departed, Adam returned to his wife and clothed in a different spirit, and begot Seth. From here derive the generations of righteous in the world. The Creator multiplied Hesed in the world, and in each one a female was born with him to establish the world such as above, for ZA and Malchut are brother and sister. It is written about them, “And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness: it is a shameful thing.”

It is so because once there is shame, other stems and roots emerge from the Achoraim of above, and the branches spread out, ZA and Malchut. And what was near has moved afar, meaning that ZA and Malchut, who were previously attached back-to-back, has now moved afar by the shame.

At that time the branches, ZA and Malchut, grew and came to bond in a Zivug in the tree. That was in the beginning, in the first state of Malchut. And it was in the concealment of the world, but only in the state of concealed Achoraim, for only then were ZA and Malchut brother and sister, for they are both the children of Bina at that time.

It is written, “I said, ‘A world of grace [Hesed, also mercy] shall be built.’” The Hesed parts them from each other and Malchut descends below ZA and is no longer his sister but below him. But henceforth, it is written about people who are in it, who take their sister, “they shall be cut off before the eyes of the children of their people.”
