132. He also spoke, saying, "Blessed be Hashem out of Zion, He who dwells at Jerusalem. Haleluyah" (Tehilim 135:21). HE ASKS, Is ZEIR ANPIN, CALLED YUD HEI VAV HEI, blessed out of Zion, WHICH IS MALCHUT, but was He not blessed out of the supernal deep river, BINAH? WHY DID IT SAY, "BLESSED BE HASHEM OUT OF ZION?" (IBID.) HE REPLIES: "Blessed be Hashem" ALLUDES TO MALCHUT whenever the moon, MALCHUT, shines by the light of the sun, ZEIR ANPIN, and they draw close and do not remove their lights from each other. THE REASON IT SAYS, "BLESSED BE HASHEM (YUD HEI VAV HEI)" IS that the moon, MALCHUT, is sometimes called by the name of the King, ZEIR ANPIN. Just as He is called Yud Hei Vav Hei, so is she called Yud Hei Vav Hei, as written, "Then Hashem rained on S'dom and on Amorah brimstone and fire from Hashem out of heaven" (Beresheet 19:24). THE FIRST YUD HEI VAV HEI REFERS TO MALCHUT AND THE SECOND YUD HEI VAV HEI REFERS TO ZEIR ANPIN. Moreover, even a messenger, NAMELY AN ANGEL, is called by the King's name, YUD HEI VAV HEI.
133. Another interpretation FOR: "Blessed be Hashem out of Zion." Whence is it made known that the Holy One, blessed be He, is blessed? He says again "out of Zion," from the place called Zion - THAT IS THE YESOD OF MALCHUT - it is made known He is blessed. What is the reason thereof? Because it is written, "For there Hashem has commanded the blessing..." (Tehilim 133:3) AND SINCE HE POURS BLESSING ON ZION, IT IS MADE KNOWN THERE THAT HE IS BLESSED, AND THUS POURS BLESSING. Rabbi Yesa said to him: Happy is your portion, that you have merited all this. Happy are those who study the Torah, for it is as if he who studies the Torah is attached to the Holy One, blessed be He, as is written, "But you that did cleave to Hashem your Elohim are alive, everyone of you this day" (Devarim 4:4).
