The Well, Which the Princes Dug

29) “The well, which the princes dug, which the nobles of the people delved.” The well is the assembly of Israel, Malchut. “Which the princes dug” refers to Aba and Ima, who begot Malchut. “Which the nobles of the people delved” are the patriarchs, HGT de ZA, as it is written, “The princes of the peoples are gathered together, the people of the God of Abraham.” “The God of Abraham” is Hesed de ZA, from which Gevura and Hesed extend. “Which the princes dug” means they have corrected her in order to be blessed through them from the degree of the righteous, Yesod de ZA, which stands atop her and imparts upon her all that there is in HGT. This is why they say that a well travels with the help of the patriarchs.

30) At one time the Malchut is called “well,” and at another time it is called “sea.” It is called “well,” when Isaac, Gevura de ZA, emerges armed from the left line, the side of Ima, and comes to extend illumination of Hochma from Ima after that Malchut, and fills her, as it is written, “Let his left hand be under my head.” Then she is called “Isaac’s well,” or “Miriam’s well.”

Malchut is called “sea” when she shines from the uppermost river, of Aba, and receives Hochma and Hassadim. Also, the rivers go to her, as it is written, “All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full.”

31) Since the day the assembly of Israel, Malchut has been exiled, it is written, “As the waters fail from the sea.” This is the assembly of Israel, called “sea.” “Drained dry” is righteous, Yesod. This is why it is written, “The righteous perishes,” for he was the uppermost, precious river that entered her, and he gathered all those rivers and streams that stretch from the extension of that holy river whose waters never stop, which is Bina.

Stretching out of the upper Eden is the concealed Hochma, which is the Bina that came out of the Rosh de AA, as it is written, “And a river went out of Eden,” which is the source of all the Mochin de ZON of the lower ones. He enters her and fills her lakes, the Sefirot of Malchut, and from there, the worlds inherit all the blessings in utter completeness.

32) When the assembly of Israel is blessed, all the worlds are blessed, and Israel below are nourished; they are blessed by her merit, and Malchut protects Israel.
