675. Furthermore, the one lamb and "two lambs of the first year without blemish" (Bemidbar 28:9) correspond to the UPPER three Sfirot. Seven lambs of the first year correspond to the seven LOWER Sfirot. The seven lambs are seven days, NAMELY, SEVEN SFIROT, of the moon, WHICH IS MALCHUT, for they are "of the first year (lit. 'sons of a year')," namely, the sons of the moon which is called 'a year', this being one of those primordial years. End of Ra'aya Meheimna (the Faithful Shepherd).
676. "And in the beginnings (lit. 'heads') of your new moons" (Ibid. 11). HE ASKS: How many heads does the moon have, since there exists no head to the moon, but the sun, WHICH IS ZEIR ANPIN, that is a head for it? HE ANSWERS: There are two heads in every month, namely, Jacob and Joseph, WHICH ARE ZEIR ANPIN AND YESOD, and they are renewed to ILLUMINATE the moon, WHICH IS MALCHUT. And it has, therefore, to be renewed, NAMELY, WITH THE SACRIFICES.
677. "Two young bullocks" (Ibid.): These are they about whom the moon said: How can TWO KINGS use one CROWN, NAMELY, ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT FROM THE ASPECT OF THE TWO GREAT LIGHTS; AND AFTERWARDS it contracted itself beneath them "and one ram" (Ibid.) refers to the ram of Isaac, WHICH IS GVURAH. HE ASKS: Where did Abraham go? NAMELY, WHY IS THE QUALITY OF ABRAHAM, WHICH IS CHESED, NOT MENTIONED HERE? AND ANSWERS it is because Esau awoke there. And who is that? That is the he-goat (Heb. seir) of the new moon, WHICH CONTAINS A PART FOR THE OTHER SIDE AND IS CALLED 'SEIR', JUST AS ESAU WAS "A HAIRY (HEB. SA'IR) MAN" (BERESHEET 27:11). Therefore Abraham, WHO IS THE LIGHT OF CHESED, was gathered up, that he should not be seen, THAT IS TO SAY THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO NOURISHMENT FOR THE OTHER SIDE FROM THE LIGHT OF CHESED. BUT Isaac, WHO IS THE LEFT COLUMN, was there because his love for him was as wine with its sediment. FOR ESAU IS THE REFUSE OF THE LEFT COLUMN, AND THE LIGHT OF THE LEFT IS CALLED 'WINE', AND THE REFUSE IS CALLED 'SEDIMENT'. Jacob, WHO IS ZEIR ANPIN, THE CENTRAL COLUMN, was there in order to break the face OF ESAU. Joseph, NAMELY, YESOD, which is the ox OF ZEIR ANPIN, THAT IS TO SAY WHICH IS DRAWN FROM THE LEFT COLUMN OF ZEIR ANPIN THAT IS CALLED 'OX', WAS THERE for Rachel, NAMELY, TO BESTOW ON MALCHUT, THAT IS CALLED 'RACHEL'.
