163) It is written, “A reddish-white plague,” since then it is a plague. This is because the white that implies Hesed does not remain unaltered, but leans toward the red, which implies judgment. It is written, “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow.” Happy are Israel, for the Creator wishes to purify them completely, so they will not be guilty before Him and the litigants will not govern them.

Everything follows its kind: red goes to judgment and white goes to Hesed. Right, which is white, is to the right, which is Hesed, and left, which is red, is to the left, which is judgment.

164) It is written about Esau, “And the first came forth ruddy.” Hence, his kind—judgments, which are red—is in him. And should you say that it writes “ruddy” about Esau, it says about David, “And brought him in. Now he was ruddy.” Esau was made of the filth of gold, which are harsh judgments, and David clung to the radiance of gold, which is the left of BinaRachamim.

It is written about Esau, “Ruddy all over like a hairy mantle,” meaning he came out of the waste that remains after the fusion of gold. But of David, it says, “With beautiful eyes and a handsome appearance,” which implies illumination of Hochma, called eyes and seeing, which extends from the left line of Bina, which is included with the right in her.

165) What is the reason that a reddish-white plague is impure? It is known that white appearance is Hesed and red appearance is judgment. Hence, if it were red at first and now the white appears in it, then purity is born in it and begins to be purified. And if it were white first, and now the red appears in it, it is beginning to become defiled.

It is written, “Then the priest shall pronounce him unclean” because red was born in him, which is judgment, becoming impure. And the priest was aware of all those visions. Sometimes, when a vision of purity was seen in him, he closed him, to see if another vision is born in him. And if not, he purifies him, as it is written, “Then the priest shall pronounce him clean.”
