That You Should Be Defiled by Them

112) It is written about that, “…that you should be defiled by them,” without the letter Aleph [in the word, “defiled,” in Hebrew]. This indicates that there is no cure to this abomination in him, and he never departs his impurity. Woe unto them and woe unto their souls, for they will never cling to the bundle of life, for they have been defiled. Woe unto their bodies. It is written about them, “for their worm shall not die… and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh,” and it was the side they adhered to that caused them all that.

113) Israel come from the right side. If they cling to the left, they blemish the right side; they blemish their bodies, and they blemish their souls; they blemish in this world and they blemish in the next world. It is even more so with those who cling to the side of impurity, which extends from the left side. It is all blemished, since all are adhered to each other: the impure side and the left side are adhered to each other, meaning the upper left line, which is separated from the right, from which impurity extends, as it is written, “For you are a holy nation unto the Lord your God.”

114) “All of man’s labor is for his mouth.” I observed the words of King Solomon, and they are all gripped in sublime wisdom. And the verse, “All of man’s labor is for his mouth” means that when a person is judged in that world, it is written that every judgment and every suffering in that world, when he suffers the vengeance of the world, all that is to his mouth. This is because he did not watch over his mouth, and defiled his soul and did not cling to the side of life, the right side. “…and yet the soul is not satisfied,” meaning her judgment will never ever be completed. Another interpretation: “…and yet the appetite is not satisfied,” meaning she will never be completed to rise to her place, since she has been defiled and clung unto the other side.

115) Anyone who is defiled in them is as though he is idol worshipping, which is abomination to the Lord. And it is written, “You shall not eat any abominable thing.” One who idol worships parts from the side of life, exits the domain of holiness and enters another domain. Similarly, one who is defiled with these foods departs the side of life, exits the domain of holiness, and enters another domain. Moreover, he is defiled in this world and in the next. This is why “…that you should be defiled by them” is written without the letter Aleph.

116) It is written, “And you shall not make yourselves detestable by animal or by bird or by anything that creeps on the ground, which I have separated for you as unclean.” What is, “as unclean”? It is to defile the idol worshipping nations, for they are impure and they come from the side of impurity, and each clings to its place. Israel—to those who come from the side of holiness, and the idol worshipping nations—to those who come from the side of impurity.

117) The Creator is destined to purify Israel. With what will He purify them? With what is written, “And I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be pure.” These are the waters of mercy, which clothe and include the illumination of the left, from which the purity comes. And since they are purified, they are sanctified, for they cling to the sanctity of ZA, which has the Mochin of AVI, called, “holiness.” And Israel, who cling to the Creator, are called, “holiness,” as it is written, “Israel is the Lord’s sacred portion, the first of His harvest.” It is also written, “And you shall be holy men unto Me.” Happy are Israel, for the Creator says about them, “You shall be holy, for I am holy,” since it is written, “and to Him shall you cling,” and, “He has not dealt so with any nation; and as for His ordinances, they have not known them, halleluiah.”
