803) Rabbi Shimon said, “Arise from your sleep, Moses, for you and the patriarchs are called, ‘They who sleep in the dust.’ Until now you were engaging in Torah, as we learn, ‘And sleep on the ground.’ But on the day of first fruits, when you offer a new offering to the Lord, you are the first fruit of the Shechina, and with your works, the Shechina is renewed with the prayers of the patriarchs each day.” Prayers correspond to “The fathers have corrected them.” On the Shema reading, where Moses said, “Hear, O Israel,” and all who read the Shema reading each day as though keep “And you shall contemplate Him day and night.”

804) Indeed, with your prayer and your Shema reading, the Shechina is renewed before the Creator. This is why it is written, “And you shall offer a new offering to the Lord,” in prayers that are instead of offerings. And by which offerings, which are prayers, is she renewed? In Shavuot [Feast of Weeks] in which there is the giving of Torah, and which is called “the fiftieth of the Omer [count].” There are seven weeks in it, from the side of the one of whom it is written, “Seven times a day I praise You,” which is Malchut, called “bride,” included in the seven Sefirot HGT NHYM, and included in Bina, and she spreads through the five Sefirot HGT NH into fifty.

805) Yesod is called Kol [all], which is fifty in Gematria. It consists of those fifty, too, HGT NH, each of which consists of ten. Malchut is called Kalah [bride], with the letters of Kol Hey [five], five Sefirot that comprise fifty. They are all swallowed in fifty, Hochma, upper Yod is swallowed in fifty because five times ten are fifty, since Hey is BinaYod is Hochma, and there is YodHey in Hochma. When you multiply one with the other they are fifty.

And there is YodHey in Bina, multiplying ten times Hey, and they are fifty. It is the same count as Kol [ChafLamed] and the same count as Yam [“sea,” YodMem], since Bina is called “sea,” which is fifty in the count, the sea of Torah. From Bina, who is called “sea,” the Torah will come forth, meaning ZA. Her source is KeterEin Sof. The rest of the Sefirot HGT NHYM are named after her, seven seas.

The count of Yam [YodMem, “sea”] is fifty. It follows that in each there is fifty. Malchut is called Yam Suf [Red Sea, or lit. “Sea of the Reed (or End)”], after the Sof [end] of all the days.

806) Because each of the seven weeks is fifty, their offering is three tenths and two tenths, five tenths, which are five times ten, since each tenth is ten and five tenths are fifty.

It is written about it, “And their offering is semolina mixed with oil, three tenths for the one bull, two tenths for the one buck, tenth, tenth for the one lamb, to the seven lambs.” The seven lambs correspond to the verse, “They shall be seven whole weeks,” which are seven Malchuts, for Malchut is called Sabbath, and each with its own six days, HGT NHY, which in addition to the day of the feast of Weeks they are fifty in Gematria.
