Shmini: Chapter 13

"His throne shall be established in righteousness"


Rabbi Shimon says that the title verse means the lower world depends on the Upper World, and the Upper World sends flow to the lower world depending on the ways of the lower world. He adds that when the priest enters the Temple he should enter with mercy, that is water, and not with the wine he drank. Lastly we read that Aaron's function was to separate the unclean beasts from the clean ones.
