119. Three lights shine within the cavity of the skull, NAMELY CHOCHMAH, BINAH AND DA'AT. You may argue, YOU SPEAK OF three, yet there are four, as I mentioned, which are the inheritance of His father and mother, NAMELY CHOCHMAH AND BINAH, THE ASPECT OF ABA AND IMA HE INHERITED and the two PARTS OF DA'AT hidden within them. They serve as crowns on the head OF ZEIR ANPIN as the head Tefilin. AND HE ANSWERS, AT FIRST THERE WERE FOUR LIGHTS, which later join at His sides, THAT IS, THE TWO PARTS OF DA'AT ARE JOINED IN HIM INTO ONE TO RECONCILE CHOCHMAH AND BINAH AND UNITE THEM WITH EACH OTHER, SO THEY BECOME THREE LIGHTS. They shine and enter the three cavities in the skull and come out each from its own side, ONE FROM THE RIGHT, ONE FROM THE LEFT AND ANOTHER FROM THE MIDDLE, and spread throughout the body.
120. These FOUR LIGHTS join the two brain lobes CHOCHMAH AND BINAH and the third brain lobe that includes THE TWO LOBES and which is attached to this and that side, NAMELY TO THE RIGHT, WHICH IS CHOCHMAH, AND THE LEFT, WHICH IS BINAH, and spreads throughout the body and two colors are formed in Him blended into one, NAMELY THE RIGHT WITHIN IT, WHICH IS CHASSADIM AND THE LEFT WITHIN IT WHICH IS CHOCHMAH ARE INCORPORATED IN IT TOGETHER. This causes His face to shine, and the colors of His countenance testify about Aba and Ima. THAT IS, THEY SHINE WITH THE COLOR OF ABA, WHICH IS CHASSADIM, AND THE COLOR OF IMA, WHICH IS CHOCHMAH. And He is called Da'at, of which it is written, "For Hashem is an El of knowledge (lit. 'knowledges')" (I Shmuel 2:3), THAT IS, IN THE PLURAL, because He has two colors, CHOCHMAH AND CHASSADIM. Hence it is written, "With the merciful You will show Yourself merciful" (II Shmuel 22:26) BY SHINING CHASSADIM ON HIM, "AND WITH THE UPRIGHT MAN (HEB. GIBOR) YOU WILL SHOW YOURSELF UPRIGHT" (IBID.), BY SHINING GVUROT ON HIM, THAT IS, WITH THE ILLUMINATION OF CHOCHMAH, WHICH IS PERFECT, AS UPRIGHT MEANS PERFECT.
121. The friends explained it in truth, as it is written, "And Jacob told Rachel that he was her father's brother" (Beresheet 29:12). In relation to "told," it has been explained that everything is the secret of wisdom, WHICH MEANS THAT THE DRAWING OF CHOCHMAH IS CONSIDERED TELLING. "And that he was Rivka's son" (Ibid.): It is written, "Rivka's son" instead of, "Isaac's son," as an allusion, and everything is an allusion of wisdom.
122. For this, JACOB is considered perfect in every respect, and faith is evident in him. THAT IS, HE BESTOWED CHOCHMAH ON MALCHUT CALLED BOTH RACHEL AND FAITH; THE BESTOWING OF CHOCHMAH IS CONSIDERED TELLING. Hence it is written, "And Jacob told Rachel," WHICH INDICATES THE BESTOWING OF CHOCHMAH, instead of 'said.'
123. Just as these colors OF RIGHT AND LEFT IN DA'AT shine in the adornment of the head and enter the cavities of the skull, so they spread throughout the body and the body is attached to them, BUT for concealed Atika Kadisha "ACTIONS are not weighed" (I Shmuel 2:3), SINCE THERE IS NO CHOCHMAH IN IT and they are not suitable for it, because this ATIKA KADISHA is completely at one WITH THE LIGHT OF CHASSADIM ALONE, AND THE ILLUMINATION OF CHOCHMAH HAS NO POWER OVER IT, AND HENCE THERE IS joy IN IT for all, life for all, and no Judgments extend from it. But as for Him, ZEIR ANPIN, "by Him, actions are weighed" (Ibid.), surely. HENCE THIS VERSE IS WRITTEN ONE WAY AND PRONOUNCED ANOTHER. IT IS WRITTEN "BY HIM (HEB. LO, LAMED VAV)," AND PRONOUNCED "NOT (HEB. LO, LAMED ALEPH)," ONE APPLYING TO ATIKA AND ONE TO ZEIR ANPIN.
