Pinchas: Chapter 70

Netzach and Hod


We are told that Netzach and Hod are called 'Heavens' because they are two halves of one body that must not be separated. The Faithful Shepherd talks about Netzach and Hod in connection with the sin of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and in connection with grapes and wine. He explains why Netzach and Hod grind up the manna for the Righteous, Yesod, that is between them; he also says that Netzach and Hod are cherubim.
