384. And now that you have repented and enjoined yourself with the Tree of Life, and you have relinquished the role of servant and returned to be a son to the Holy One, blessed be He, the staff (Heb. mateh) given to you will be a Tree of Life - denoting Vav, which is the son of Yud Hei. THE VAV will penetrate the Mem-Tet (= 49) aspects you have in Torah, and will become a rod (Heb. mot: Mem-Vav-Tet) and as such can be fulfilled with the verse, "He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved (Heb. mot)" (Tehilim 55:23). The 49 aspects ARE THE SECRET OF the 49 letters in 'Sh'ma Yisrael' and 'Blessed is the Name OF YOUR GLORIOUS KINGDOM FOREVER,' REPRESENTING the six words of supernal unity, pointing to the supernal Vav (= 6) denoting Tiferet. And then the six words of "Blessed is the Name" is a second group OF LOWER UNITY, meaning to point to the second Vav IN THE LETTER VAV FULLY SPELLED (VAV-ALEPH-VAV) denoting the Righteous, REFLECTING YESOD. AND THEY ARE a rod (Heb. mot). We find in the middle OF TWO VAV'S there is an Aleph, the secret of the verse, "and they carried it between two on a pole" (Bemidbar 13:24), MEANING TWO VAV'S.
385. If it lacks a Vav in the middle, the word becomes Mem-Tet, MEANING the righteous bends (Heb. mat) before the villain. What caused this? Aleph (= 1) one of fifty, as fifty gates minus one were given to you; as the masters of the Mishnah explain, fifty gates minus one of Binah were given to Moses. This is the missing Aleph from the fifty, so only Mem-Tet (= 49) remained. This is why the righteous bends before the villain. Who is the villain? It is Samael.
386. This Mem-Tet stems from your staff (Heb. mateh, Mem-Tet-Hei) as it is written, "with the rod (Heb. mateh) of the Elohim in my hand" (Shemot 17:9). Your staff is that of Moses, and therefore the letter Aleph, which is Binah, comes back to you, as recorded in the Mishnah; Aleph is Binah. It returns to you as a result of repentance, and enters between the two Vav's to become Vav-Aleph-Vav. Thus is fulfilled in you the verse, "but with great mercies will I gather you" (Yeshayah 54:7) for the sake of Yisrael. From this point will be fulfilled, "He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved (Heb. mot)."
387. At that time two precepts were validated. 1) "You shall surely help him to lift (lit. 'lifting will you lift') them up again" (Devarim 22:4), and 2) "You shall surely unload it with him" (Shemot 23:5). "Surely help" lift together with the supernal Vav, alludes to the first Messiah NAMELY MESSIAH, THE SON OF DAVID; and in helping with the second Vav, NAMELY THE SECOND MESSIAH, BEING MESSIAH THE SON OF JOSEPH. "Him" refers to the son of Amram, that ascended to Binah - which is equal to Aleph, SITUATED BETWEEN THE TWO VAV'S, AS MENTIONED. THEY REFER TO THE VAV, WRITTEN OUT FULLY AS VAV (VAV-ALEPH-VAV).
388. Whom shall you help to rise? It refers to the letter Hei, NAMELY MALCHUT, that fell in the fifth millennium after seventy-two YEARS, according to the count in "You shall surely unload (Heb. azov) it with him." "Azov" (Ayin-Zayin-Vav-Bet) EQUALS THE LETTERS Ayin-Bet, Zayin-Vav; Ayin-Bet (= 72) refers to the 72 names derived from, "And removed...and it came... And...stretched" (Shemot 14:19-21). ZAYIN-VAV MEANS THE INITIALS OF 'THIS IS (HEB. ZEH) VAV,' the Vav from Yud-Hei-Vav EQUALING ZEIR ANPIN. There, IN THE YEAR FIVE THOUSAND AND SEVENTY-TWO, he helped, HELPING THE FALLEN HEI, but did not lift, FOR THE TIME OF RISING AND REDEMPTION HAS NOT ARRIVED. Hence, it says, "You shall surely unload it with him" - JUST HELPING. There IS PRACTICED "in its due season, the early rain and the late rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil" (Devarim 11:14). This alludes to Yisrael. "CORN" REFERS TO YISRAEL, "WINE" REFERS TO THE LEVITES, AND "OIL" TO THE PRIESTS. AND SO APPLY THE CUSTOM OF the gleaning, the forgotten sheaf, and the poor man's tithe - "you shall leave them for the poor and strange" (Vayikra 19:10). So here we learn about the third precept OF THE GLEANING, THE FORGOTTEN SHEAF AND THE POOR MAN'S TITHE.
389. You must seek them TO SUPPORT THEM, as the poor are from the aspect of the Righteous, MEANING YESOD. "You shall surely unload it," YESOD, the Righteous; "with him," refers to the son of Amram. This is the meaning of, "you shall leave them for the poor and strange." You are a stranger, a poor nation, as it is written about you at the start, "I have been an alien in a strange land" (Shemot 18:3).
390. But the rising, MEANING REDEMPTION, is in your level - lifting points to the lower Vav, the FULFILLMENT OF VAV, DENOTING YESOD. "...lift with him..." with the son of Amram, with your level, being Tiferet, USING THE NAME Mem-Hei of yours, BEING YUD HEI VAV HEI FULLY SPELLED WITH ALEPH'S THAT NUMERICALLY REACH MEM-HEI, which is the explicit Name in its completeness. Following the two Kof's of "lifting... lift (Heb. hakem-takim, Tav-Kof-Yud-Mem)" remain Tav-Yud-Mem. HE ASKS, What does this teach? HE REPLIES, It points to, "Jacob was a plain (Heb. tam, Tav-Mem) man" (Beresheet 25:27), DENOTING TIFERET, SO THE EXPLANATION OF THE VERSE IS, "with him," MEANING with the son of Amram he will rise. "...Lifting..." refers to the Righteous, MEANING YESOD. .".. "Lift..." refers to the plain one, MEANING TIFERET.
