Acharei Mot: Chapter 26

Eheyeh Asher Eheyeh


Rabbi Elazar does not understand the title verse, which means "I will ever be what I now am," and his father says that the word "Eheyeh" comprises everything, and is completely concealed. "Asher Eheyeh" means "I will draw, and give birth to all" - Ima/Binah is impregnated and ready to give forth all the details and to reveal the exalted name Yud Hei Vav Hei. God had explained the secret of the Holy Name to Moses, and Rabbi Shimon found in King Solomon's book that "Asher" means that the chamber, Binah, is in connection with Eden, Chochmah, when in the exalted knot. "Asher" is derived from happy and "Eheyeh" means prepared to give birth. At the time of birth it is not written "Asher" because the heavenly pair is separated, but rather "Eheyeh" which means that now it will produce and give birth, and all will be corrected. After the birth of Zeir Anpin, those other names were forsaken and it says Yud Hei Vav Hei.
