Delight in the Lord

231) It is written, “Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land, and cherish faithfulness.” “Trust in the Lord,” as it should be, “And do good,” meaning make the correction of the holy covenant, so you will correct it and keep it properly. If you do that, you will be here in the land, which is “dwell in the land.” The faith of above, Malchut, will be nourished by you, and this is “cherish faithfulness.”

232) Also, “Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires of your heart.” All this was corrected in the correction of the covenant. Once the covenant was corrected, everything was corrected. And because Pinhas was jealous over that covenant, he was rewarded with everything.

Moreover, he protects the whole of Israel, and in him the verse, “Delight in the Lord,” comes true. He rises and connects above, in the first light that the Creator created and concealed, in the light that Abraham enjoys, and to which Aaron the priest connects.

233) After Pinhas rose to being the high priest, the killing of Zimri was not mentioned in regard to him, and it is inappropriate, so he will not grip to the branches of the Sitra Achra whatsoever. It is inappropriate to mention this in relation to him because anyone who kills, there are branches of the Sitra Achra in him, but Pinhas had already connected to the right, to priesthood, and had no part in the Sitra Achra whatsoever. This is why his name is not mentioned here, for what seems like a praise is a disgrace to him, and a descent from the high degree to which he became united. This is why it is written plainly, “The stricken, who was struck,” and also, “And the name of the stricken woman,” without mentioning by whom.

234) Rabbi Pinhas said, “Happy is the generation that hears your words in the Torah. And happy am I for being rewarded with it.” Rabbi Shimon said to Rabbi Pinhas, “Happy is the generation that you and your piousness are in it.”
