139. Rabbi Yosi said: It is written: "Counting one thing to another, to find out the sum (Heb. cheshbon)" (Kohelet 7:27), AND HE ASKED: The calculation (Heb. chesbon) of numerical value pertains to the moon, WHICH IS MALCHUT, but in which of her levels? He had no answer, but said: I have heard this matter, but do not remember it. That shade arose and hit Rabbi Aba in the eyes. He fell on his face out of fear, and while he was still lying on his face, a verse came to him, that is written: "Your eyes like the pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bat-rabbim" (lit. 'daughter of many')" (Shir Hashirim 7:5). THE EXPLANATION IS: This refers to the eyes OF MALCHUT, NAMELY HER CHOCHMAH WHICH IS CALLED 'EYES,' and they are appetizers, NAMELY DELICACIES to the divine Chochmah which is drawn from above, FROM BINAH, AND HER EYES are filled by reckoning and solstices, equinoxes and intercalation of the moon and become pools flowing out from the right in all directions until they are counted in every account and intercalation of the moon from the outside, NAMELY OF THE EXTERNAL PARTS OF MALCHUT, also of the stars and the constellations - in order to reach a sum. And this is "by the gate of Bath-rabbim," which is the moon, WHICH IS MALCHUT, from the outside.
