116. "And Hashem smote every firstborn." "And Hashem" IS DEFINED AS Him, ZEIR ANPIN, and His court, WHICH IS MALCHUT. "And Hashem," REFERS TO Him and His actions. "Smote every firstborn" - HE ASKS, Moses only said, "And all the firstborn...shall die" (Shemot 11:5). Why DOES IT SAY HERE "smote?" HE ANSWERS, But MALCHUT OF THE ASPECT OF JUDGMENT, WHICH IS CALLED ''KOH,' became aroused and Moses threatened him, as it is written, "Behold, till now (Lit. 'to koh) you would not hear." THEREFORE, IT IS SAID, "HASHEM SMOTE (HEB. HIKAH)," WHICH IS THE NAME KOH THAT SLEW ALL THE FIRSTBORN OF EGYPT.
