Noach: Chapter 40

"He was a mighty hunter"


According to the Zohar, Nimrod used the clothes of Adam to gain strength. Clothes is a code word that alludes to the physicality that conceals the Light, as garments conceal the body. Nimrod, we are told, connected only to the material world, without any regard or consideration for the spiritual essence of reality. This is considered to be a form of idol worshipping. It is falling under the delusion and control of the physical world.

A deeper awareness for the spiritual essence of life is awakened within us by these passages, so that we are not controlled by illusion.
