48. The fifth compartment is the one in which light shines more brightly than it does in any of the preceding ones. Angels reside there. THOSE WHO REPRESENT JUDGMENT ARE fiery angels. Others, who REPRESENT MERCY, are watery angels. Sometimes Mercy is prominent, WHEN THE WATERY ANGELS ARE DOMINANT, and sometimes Judgment is prominent, WHEN THE FIERY ANGELS ARE DOMINANT. Those OF WATER are on the RIGHT side, and those OF FIRE are on the LEFT side. Occasionally, some of these angels glow, while the others are in darkness. Both groups of angels oversee the chanting to their Master, some - ANGELS OF JUDGMENT - at midnight, and others - ANGELS OF MERCY - at dawn. And one minister governs them both; he is called Kadshiel. HIS DUTY IS TO DRAW DOWN HOLINESS (HEB. KDUSHAH) TO THE LOWER WORLDS.
49. At midnight, the northern wind arises, and the Holy One, blessed be He, comes to the Garden of Eden to rejoice with the righteous. And this northern wind OF BINAH knocks and reaches those ministers in charge of chanting at midnight. They all sing and begin to chant, THUS ENABLING THE LOWER BEINGS TO SING. When the deep darkness JUST BEFORE DAWN joins with the light of the morning, all the other angels - THE WATER ANGELS ON THE RIGHT - sing. And all the stars in the firmament help them, along with the angels OF FIRE FROM THE LEFT SIDE. BECAUSE SINGING IS OF THE LEFT ASPECT, THEY NEED THE HELP OF THE LEFT COLUMN ANGELS IN ORDER TO SING, as is written: "The morning stars sang together and the sons of Elohim shouted for joy" (Iyov 38:7). BECAUSE ALL THE ANGELS SING IN THE MORNING, until Yisrael below open with singing and praises after them. BECAUSE THOSE ANGELS ARE MORE ELEVATED THAN YISRAEL, YISRAEL RECEIVE STRENGTH FROM THEM TO SING.
