942. One day Rabbi Elazar was sitting before Rabbi Shimon. Rabbi Elazar said: This End of all Flesh, does it get enjoyment from the offerings Yisrael sacrifice upon the altar, or does it not? He said to him: All got their satisfaction as one, above and below.
943. Come and see: The priest, Levites, and Yisrael, THE SECRET OF THE THREE COLUMNS, RIGHT, LEFT AND CENTRAL, are called 'man together', by joining all the sacred desires ascending from them TO MAYIN NUKVIN (FEMALE WATERS), THE PRIESTS BY THEIR SERVICE, THE LEVITES BY THEIR SINGING, AND THE CHILDREN OF YISRAEL BY THEIR PRAYERS. Before offering the ewe lamb, ram, or cattle upon the altar, a man should confess over it all the sins, transgressions and evil thoughts he contemplated. Then this offering is called 'a beast in every respect', completed by sins, evils, and thoughts.
944. Like the goat to Azazel, of which says the verse, "and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Yisrael..." (Vayikra 16:21), here too, THE CUSTOM OF CONFESSING SINS SHOULD BE PRACTICED, for when the sacrifice is offered upon the altar, this goes to its place, and that goes to its place, the one in the secret of man, and the other in the secret of beast, as it is written, "Hashem, You preserve man and beast" (Tehilim 36:7).
945. The offering of fine flour, and the rest of the offerings, should awaken the Holy Spirit with the service of the priests, the song of the Levites and the prayer of Yisrael. By the smoke, oil, and flour that rise UPON THE ALTAR, the other claimants take their fill and are satiated, who cannot have control over the Judgment given them. All is done at the same time. Come and see: All is done in the secret of the Faith, to give abundance, the one to the other, NAMELY, THAT RIGHT AND LEFT WILL GIVE TO EACH OTHER AND BE PERFECTED BY EACH OTHER, and to raise what needs to be raised, NAMELY, THE ILLUMINATION OF CHOCHMAH, WHICH SHOULD BE ELEVATED UPWARD FROM BELOW up to the Endless Light.
