These Are the Words of the Covenant

52) “These are the words of the covenant.” “The words of the covenant”? It should have said, “The words of the Creator.” And these curses in the law of the priests were said by the Creator, and the ones in Deuteronomy by Moses himself.

53) Both are the words of the covenant. Even though the words come from the Creator, they are the words of the covenant because good and evil depend on it. Good comes from the Tzadik [righteous], Yesod. Evil comes from DinTzedek [justice], Malchut, and Tzadik and TzedekYesod and Malchut, are a covenant. Hence these words are the words of the covenant. And the covenant means Yesod and Malchut that are tied together. For this reason, “Remember and keep” are Tifferet and Malchut, which are tied together—“remember” during the day and “keep” during the night.

And they are together, as it is written, “And there was evening and there was morning, one day.” Thus, the covenant, meaning Yesod and Malchut together, means that ZA is not tied to Malchut but to Yesod. This is why it writes covenant, since these are certainly the words of the covenant. The admonition in the law of the priests and in Deuteronomy and wherever the covenant is mentioned is in this place.

54) So it is. And this is why the Sabbath, which is “Remember and keep,” Yesod and Malchut, is called “covenant,” as it is written, “And the sons of Israel shall observe the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual covenant,” and all is one thing. And this place, Yesod and Malchut together, is called “a covenant” in all the places.

55) “And I will give peace in the land.” Peace is Yesod, the peace of the land, peace at home and peace in the world. This is so because Malchut is called “earth,” it is called “home,” and it is called “world.” “And I also will chastise you seven.” Seven is TzedekMalchut from the side of Din. And this is a covenant, and for this reason, they are the words of the covenant. Peace is from Yesod and affliction is from Malchut, and both appear from Yesod and from Malchut when they are in a Zivug together, which is a covenant.

56) “Also, when they are in the land of their enemies.” “Also,” also is like saying, “And I also,” meaning ZA. “Also” includes the assembly of Israel, called “this,” Malchut, which never leaves them. “When they are in the land of their enemies” means when they are everything together, “I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them,” although I do not join them. “To break My covenant with them,” for if I do not redeem them then My covenant is divided, meaning the Zivug of Yesod and Malchut is cancelled. This is why it is written, “To break My covenant with them.”
