Shmita and Yovel [Jubilee]

15) “Six years you shall sow your field … But in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath unto the Lord.” “But the seventh you shall let it rest and lie fallow [Shmita], that the poor of your people may eat.” Because the poor are dependent upon Malchut, Shmita, leave them so they may eat. This is why one who has pity on the poor gives peace in the assembly of Israel (since the poor depend on her), adds blessing in the world, and gives joy and strength to righteousness, Malchut, for he imparts blessings to the assembly of Israel.

16) “But in the seventh year shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest.” This Mitzva [commandment] is to rest on the seventh year, and after that, to rest on the seventh, and after that, to leave money on the seventh, and after that, to count “Seven times seven years; and there shall be unto you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, forty-nine years.” All the sevenths are from Divinity, Malchut, who is called “seven” because the righteous, Yesod, is seventh to Bina. Also, Malchut is seven because of upper Ima, Bina, which shines in her, since Bina is seventh from below upwards.

17) There are seven names: Aleph-Bet-Gimel Yod-Tav-Tzadik, Kof-Reish-Ayin Shin-Tet-Nun, Nun-Gimel-Dalet Yod-Chaf-Shin, Bet-Tet-Reish Tzadik-Tav-Gimel, Het-Kof-Bet Tet-Nun-Ayin, Yod-Gimel-Lamed Peh-Zayin-Kof, Shin-Kof-Vav Tzadik-Yod-Tav. They contain forty-two letters, and the sum of letters and words is forty-nine: forty-two letters and seven words. Upper Ima, Bina, is the fiftieth year, in which it is written, “And proclaim liberty,” since on it, by receiving its Mochin, the lower Divinity, Malchut, called “land,” will be liberty, redemption, and Shmita for Israel. It is said about them, “Your seed will be as the dust of the earth,” meaning Malchut.

18) Each Sefira, each of those seven names contains six wings, corresponding to HGT NHY, which are six letters in each name. The Creator shines for the angels in each of those seven Sefirot. It is said about them, “With two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.” Bina is one, and the lower Divinity is seven, and above Bina, the High Priest would count each one, he would count ten Sefirot by sprinkling—one is Keter, one and one are HB, one and two are HG, one and three are Tifferet, one and four are Netzah, one and five are Hod, one and six are Yesod, and one and seven are Malchut.

19) It was gradually growing because holiness is increased, so he adds one every time. From the side of the foreigner, the Sitra Achra, the water was decreasing. This was in the place where the lower Divinity, Malchut, is in the seven, as it is written, “And the ark rested in the seventh month,” which is the lower Divinity, from which the water began to recede. “On the seventeenth day of the month,” meaning Malchut, which is “seventh,” and “tenth,” since when you begin to count from Keter downwards, Malchut is tenth, and from Hesed downwards she is seventh.

20) He rises and shines in forty-nine years. The name EKYEH is Bina—the year of Jubilee. Bina is called EKYEH Asher EKYEH [“I am that I am”]. This is twice EKYEH, which is twenty-one in Gematria, hence, forty-two. And with the eight letters in the two EKYEH [in Hebrew], it is fifty, in which there is the Mitzva to calculate the year of Jubilee. In it is also the Mitzva of returning to the degree from which his soul was gripped. Return means that at the Jubilee, each will return to his place, as it is written, “In this year of Jubilee,” “The spirit shall return to God,” to Bina—HaVaYaH with punctuation of Elokim.

21) Shmita is the lower Divinity, from the seven years. Jubilee is upper Ima, Bina, for fifty years, and in which Israel were referenced when they came out of Egypt. At that time, they had the Torah, and it is said about them, “And the children of Israel went out armed.” Fifty is Bina, as they were at the exodus from Egypt when they were delivered by the fiftieth gate, Bina.

22) The lower Divinity is the redemption of the houses of wall-surrounded cities. It is said in it, “And the houses of cities of yard-houses [cities not surrounded by wall].” There are two houses in the heart, which corresponds to Malchut. If they engage in the Torah, they are called “houses of wall-surrounded cities,” which was said when they came out of Egypt and the waters were a wall to their right and to their left. But to others, who did not engage in Torah, they were called “yard houses,” since the interior of Malchut is called “wall-surrounded houses,” and the exterior of Malchut is called “yard houses.”

23) Thus we found that it was said about yards, “And stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house.” And wherever it refers in the Megillah [The Book of Esther] to the king in general, it is the Creator. “Stood” does not mean standing, but praying. “Against the king’s house” means opposite from the Temple, where all of Israel should pray their prayers, to be opposite the Temple. Thus, there are two yards to the house of God, inner and outer.

24) The two yards are the externality of the heart, externality of Malchut, and they are the two ears of the heart. The two inner houses are the two houses of the heart, internality of Malchut. And two are the inner houses and two are the outer houses. Redemption will be for all, for those who are close to the heart, Divinity, and for the remote ones who have grown closer, as it is written, “Peace, peace, to him that is far and to him that is near. “To him that is far,” due to transgression, “And to him that is near,” because of the Mitzva [commandment/good deed].
