670) Malchut in the six Sefirot always ascends to the sixth, ZA, which is gripped to them. Ben [son of] YodHeyZA, who has Mochin of YodHey, is hidden in Bina. In which Sefira of those six Sefirot in Malchut—from Tifferet de Malchut, which includes all her six Sefirot—does she rise to ZA? On the third day, in this third SefiraTifferet, which also comprises all of his six Sefirot, but lacks GAR.

Although during the making of the offering he has VAK de BinaYESHSUT, they are still not regarded as actual Mochin de GAR because YESHSUT is also VAK de Bina. However, on Sabbath, an added Nefesh is joined with him, Bina, the first Hey de HaVaYaH, which ascends up to upper AVIGAR de Bina, and then he also has Yod, which is the token of Sabbath, upper Hochma. The king, too, ZA, is crowned with KeterKHB de Bina, and for this reason, in the Musaf [additional] prayer [on Sabbath] we say, “You will be given a crown.”

671) It is written, “And on your new moons [beginnings of months] you will make an offering to the Lord.” Does the moon have several heads, as it is written, “and on your new moons”? Two points, like the Segol [], where the bottom point is the moon, Malchut, and her two heads are two points atop her from above. Together they are called Segol.

In the beginning she was a Keter [crown] on two kings, on NH de ZA, like this: . She was Segolta in the punctuation marks. Afterward, when she said “Two kings cannot use the same crown,” and the Creator told her: “Go and diminish yourself,” she descended to begin at the foot of those two kings, below NH, like a Segol , and after being Segolta, she returns to being Segol.

Initially, Malchut was above Chazeh de ZA, clothing the left line of Bina, and HGT de ZA clothed the right line of Bina. At that time she was in a state of “the two great lights,” meaning she was as big as ZA. And because at that time she was above Chazeh de ZA, it was considered that she is above NH de ZA. Therefore, at that time Malchut with NH is regarded as Segolta in the punctuation marks, where one point, Malchut, is above, and two points, NH de ZA, are below, to which Malchut is the Keter.

However, she could not maintain that state due to lack of Hassadim. This is why she complained and said, “Two kings,” ZA and Malchut, “cannot use the same crown.” Then she was told, “Go and diminish yourself,” and she descended below Chazeh de ZA, under NH. This is the Segol, where the two points, NH, are above, and Malchut is the point beneath them.

Prior to the diminution she was above Chazeh de ZA, a Keter over NH de ZA. Subsequently, when she said it is impossible for two kings to use one crown, she descended to being at the feet of those two kings, descending below the Chazeh, under NH. And after being Segolta, she returns to being Segol, with two points NHY above, and the Malchut underneath, below them.

672) Opposite two points, two kings, NH de ZA, it is written, “two young bulls.” And opposite the point of Atara on the heads of the two points it is written, “And one ram,” like a crown, according to the shape of a Segolta, where the Malchut is the Keter of NH.

After she diminished herself, one he-goat for a sin offering was also diminished, since Isaac’s ram, the left line of Bina, which Malchut clothed in the first state, was diminished and became a goat. That is, he turned in her from mercy to judgment, and was diminished. It is so because the place above Chazeh de ZA is mercy, and the place below Chazeh de ZA is judgment, hence he was diminished from ram to goat, indicating judgment.

673) This is why it is written, “And one he-goat for a sin offering, and it does not say, “for an offering,” which would mean that it goes up to be Keter over NH. And it is written, “And he came down from offering the sin offering.” He associated the offering with the sin offering upon the descent, showing that first she was an offering, the quality of mercy, from Chazeh de ZA and above, the place of mercy. Afterward she was inverted into judgment, upon the descent below Chazeh de ZA, the place of judgment, and she is called “sin offering.” But it is all one: both the offering and the sin offering are Malchut.

674) This is why the Creator, ZA, said, “Bring atonement upon Me,” for upon Me the moon turned into Keter prior to the diminution, Keter above NH de ZA, such as the . Afterward she was diminished and descended to His feet, below NH, who are called “feet,” like this: .

At that time, when it is written about him, “Bring atonement upon Me,” when offering a he-goat of the new month to atone for the diminution of the moon, it is said about her, “who rises,” for she rises from his feet. At that time it is written about her, “And the earth,” Malchut, “is My footstool.” And now she rises to being a throne for Bina along with ZA, who is called “heaven,” and it will be written about her, “The heaven is My throne,” for heaven, ZA, with Malchut, become a throne to Bina.

It is written, “A righteous rules over the fear of God,” turning judgment into mercy, for by the goat of the new month, Hassadim and Hochma are extended to her so she can return to from Chazeh de ZA and above, the place of mercy. However, this helps only during the offering, and not afterward, since correction is not completed until the end of correction, as it is written, “The stone which the builders loathed has become the cornerstone.” And likewise, there is the combination HeyVav HeyYod, which indicates the quality of judgment, and there is the combination YodHey VavHey that indicates the quality of mercy. And the difference is bigger between from the Chazeh and above to from the Chazeh and below.
