128. Come and behold. It is written, "I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter" (Beresheet 29:18). HE ASKS, Why did Jacob say "seven years" instead of ten months or one year? HE ANSWERS, Jacob acted wisely so that people would not say that he lusted after Rachel's beauty, but WOULD KNOW that he acted wisely. For the moon, THE NUKVA OF ZEIR ANPIN, is seven years old, MEANING IT NEEDS TO BE BUILT BY THE SEVEN SFIROT - CHESED, GVURAH, TIFERET, NETZACH, HOD, YESOD AND MALCHUT. And all the seven upper years - CHESED, GVURAH, TIFERET, NETZACH, HOD YESOD AND MALCHUT OF BINAH - rested on Jacob before he married Rachel so that they would suit her properly, THAT IS, GIVE OF THE SEVEN SFIROT OF BINAH TO HER SEVEN SFIROT. For at first Jacob took everything FROM BINAH and then he came to her, so that he should be CONSIDERED AS ZEIR ANPIN, the heaven, and she should be CONSIDERED THE NUKVA OF ZEIR ANPIN, the earth.
129. The secret of the matter is in the phrase, "and they seemed to him but a few days." HE ASKS, What is "a few (Heb. achadim) days?" HE ANSWERED that he considered all seven years as the SEVEN upper YEARS FROM BINAH, which are united (Heb. achadot) BY ONE UNION and never separated. They are bound to each other. "...For the love he had to her..." MEANS THAT HE LOVED HER, because she is to him as the supernal UNION WITHIN BINAH.
130. Come and behold, even Laban hinted at these seven SFIROT - although he did not know what he was saying, for he opened the discussion with the words, "It is better (lit. 'good') that I give her to you..." Rabbi Aba said, Surely this is so. He worked seven years, WHICH ARE THE SEVEN SFIROT, to be united with the Sabbatical year, NAMELY, TO PASS THE SEVEN SFIROT TO THE NUKVA, RACHEL CALLED 'SABBATICAL YEAR.' Rabbi Elazar said, Come and behold. Everywhere the Jubilee is undisclosed, while the Sabbatical year is disclosed.
131. Come and behold, when Jacob served the first seven years, a voice resounded, saying, "From the world to the world" (Tehilim 106:48). THIS MEANS THAT THERE IS A DRAWING FROM THE HIDDEN WORLD, LEAH, TO THE DISCLOSED WORLD, RACHEL. The undisclosed world above, which is jubilee, NAMELY LEAH, is the starting point, AND NOT THE REVEALED WORLD, WHICH IS RACHEL. And these GRADES, which are undisclosed and not revealed to us, are from the Jubilee and were therefore hidden from Jacob, who did not even know THAT THEY WERE FOR LEAH, THE JUBILEE. He thought they were for the Sabbatical year, THAT IS, FOR RACHEL. ANOTHER REASON WAS to make him start from the supernal world, LEAH, and so (?) it was hidden from him THAT THEY BELONGED TO LEAH, because the Jubilee is undisclosed. BEING CLOSED AND COVERED BY CHOCHMAH, HE DID NOT WANT TO START AND DRAW FROM IT, UNLESS HE THOUGHT THEY BELONGED TO THE DISCLOSED WORLD. Later, when the seven undisclosed years of the Jubilee were over, Jacob served the seven disclosed Sabbatical year FOR RACHEL, and JACOB was adorned in both worlds, THE UNDISCLOSED AND THE DISCLOSED WORLD, and was united with them.
