374. With T'ruah, T'kiah and Sh'varim, everything is perfumed, one with the other, FOR ALL OF THE JUDGMENTS ARE MITIGATED, and everything that the liver is holding it sacrifices to the heart, which is the king, to nourish it. And it is neither the way of the heart, nor does it desire, the foulness of the deeds of its people, rather it takes everything that is clear and pure, NAMELY all the merits and the good deeds, while all the foulness, the filth and the dirt, which are the bad deeds it leaves for the liver, WHICH IS SAMAEL, about whom it is said: "Esau...is a hairy (Heb. sair) man" (Beresheet 27:11). And all its arteries, which are the other idol-worshipping peoples, are as it is written: "And the goat (Heb. seir) shall bear upon him all their iniquities" (Vayikra 16:22). What is meant by "their iniquities" (Heb. avonotam)? avonot tam, namely the iniquities of a tam, a complete man, the reference being to the same one about whom it is said: "And Jacob was a plain (Heb. tam) man" (Beresheet 25:27). And the iniquities of its people are in the arteries AND SINEWS that pulsate in the heart.

From the heart comes health for all the limbs, for that is how it is: since the heart took all that is pure, clean, and bright, the liver takes what is left of the dirt and the filth and distributes it to all the other limbs, which are the other idol worshipping nations, against their will. And from the refuse of, the refuse of the liver, the spleen, WHICH IS LILIT, takes, about whom it is said: "Let there be lights (Heb. me'orot)" (Beresheet 1:14), WHERE THE WORD 'ME'OROT' IS SPELLED WITHOUT VAV, WHICH CAN ALSO BE READ AS M'ERAT, 'THE CURSE OF,' BECAUSE LILIT WAS CREATED, as in the verse: "The curse (Heb. m'erat) of Hashem is in the house of the wicked" (Mishlei 3:33).
