50. The sixth compartment is very close to the kingdom of heaven, THAT IS, THE INNER MALCHUT. In it are ships and rivers and streams that branch off and leave the sea, WHICH IS MALCHUT. Many are the fish - ALLUDING TO THE ANGELS - that, governed by their ministers, swarm IN THE RIVERS AND STREAMS to the four winds of the world. One minister, called Uriel, is in charge of all the lower ANGELS IN THIS COMPARTMENT. HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE ANGELS FROM THE WESTERN SIDE.
51. At those hours and moments when the ships sail, ALL THESE ANGELS TRAVEL WITH THEM IN THOSE DIRECTIONS TOWARD WHICH THE SHIPS SAIL. When the ships sail southward, the minister governing them is Michael, who is drawn from the Right COLUMN, WHICH IS CHESED. And when the ships sail northward, the minister governing them is Gabriel, who is drawn from the left side WHICH IS GVURAH. THE FOUR DIRECTIONS, SOUTH, NORTH, EAST AND WEST ARE CHOCHMAH, BINAH, TIFERET AND MALCHUT. AND FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE SIX LOWER SFIROT, THEY ARE CHESED, GVURAH, TIFERET AND MALCHUT. And when the ships are eastbound, the minister governing them on that side is Raphael, who is to the right, THAT IS ON THE SIDE OF THE CHASSADIM. And when the ships are westbound, the minister governing them is Uriel, who is the last, WEST BEING THE LAST OF THE FOUR DIRECTIONS.
