646. Ra'aya Meheimna (the Faithful Shepherd). Another explanation: "And he dreamed, and behold a ladder" (Beresheet 28:12). Faithful Shepherd, just as the letter Lamed rises alone all the other letters, BECAUSE THE LAMED ALLUDES TO BINAH, so will you in the future be exalted above all creatures because you ascended to the name Yud-Vav-Dalet, Hei-Yud, Vav-Aleph-Vav, Hei-Yud, WHOSE NUMERICAL VALUE IS 63, WHICH IS BINAH. And in it THERE ARE THREE YUDS, Yud Yud Yud, the numerical value of them making Lamed (= 30). For initially you were in the name Yud-Vav-Dalet, Hei-Aleph, Vav-Aleph-Vav, Hei- Aleph, WHICH HAS THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 45, WHICH IS ZEIR ANPIN. It contains Yud-Aleph-Aleph-Aleph, THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF WHICH IS THIRTEEN, which stands for the thirteen attributes of Mercy, AND HAS THE SAME NUMERICAL VALUE AS THE WORD One (Heb. echad - Aleph Chet Dalet = 13). And now you have ascended with El (= 31), which is Yud-Yud-Aleph-Yud OF THE FULL SPELLING OF 63. And both of these Names are witnesses, "has not one El created us?" (Malachi 2:10). FOR THE YUD-YUD-ALEPH-YUD OF YUD HEI VAV HEI, FULLY SPELLED OF THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 63 HAS THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF THE WORD EL, AND THE ALEPH FILLING OF THE YUD HEI VAV HEI, YUD-ALEPH- ALEPH-ALEPH IS THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF THE WORD ONE (Heb. ECHAD).. Hence it is written: "Have we not all one father? has not one El created us?"
647. And with these three Yud's OF THE 63 NUMERIC VALUE LETTER NAME may the verse be established in you: "He shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high" (Yeshayah 52:13). "VERY (HEB. ME'OD) HIGH" REFERS TO YUD HEI VAV HEI OF THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 45, which is the numerical value of the word me'od (Mem Aleph Dalet), which is the same as man (Heb. adam - Aleph Dalet Mem), 45, and in fact the letters of the word 'very' are the same as those of the word 'man', written in a different order. "He shall be exalted" is in the four faces of the lion, WHICH IS CHESED THAT RISES TO CHOCHMAH, which is the secret of "Hashem bless you" (Bemidbar 6:24), THIS BEING THE SECRET OF YUD HEI VAV HEI FULLY SPELLED TO THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 72, THUS: YUD-VAV-DALET, HEI-YUD, VAV-YUD-VAV, HEI-YUD; WHICH IS THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF CHESED, AND THIS IS CHOCHMAH OF THE RIGHT. "and extolled" is through the four faces of ox, WHICH IS GVURAH THAT RISES TO BINAH, namely: "Hashem lift up" (Ibid. 26), AND THIS IS BINAH of the left. "and be very high" is "Hashem make His face shine" (Ibid. 25), WHICH IS ZEIR ANPIN, AND IS in the middle, AND IS YUD HEI VAV HEI, FULLY SPELLED TO THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 45. And this Yud Vav Dalet, Hei Yud, Vav Aleph Vav, Hei Yud, WHICH IS YUD HEI VAV HEI, FULLY SPELLED TO THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 63, is, "Hashem lift up His countenance to you, and give you peace" (Ibid. 26). The fourth Yud Hei Vav Hei, NAMELY, THAT FILLED WITH HEIS OF THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF 52 IS MALCHUT, AND THIS is: "And they shall put My name upon the children of Yisrael: and I will bless them" (Ibid. 27), FOR MALCHUT IS CALLED 'NAME.'
