379. The merchant opened the discussion saying, "When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of Elohim shouted for joy" (Iyov 38:7). Come and see: When the Holy One, blessed be He, goes to be delighted together with the righteous in the Garden of Eden, all things, NAMELY ALL GRADES, of the lower world MALCHUT, and all the upper and lower beings awaken towards Him. All the trees, THE GRADES of the Garden of Eden, start praising Him, as written, "Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy at the presence of Hashem because He comes..." (I Divrei Hayamim 16:33). Even the fowls on earth all mutter praises before Him. A flame then comes out and strikes the wings of the cock, and it cries and praises the Holy King, cries for men to labor in the Torah, in the praise of their Master and in His service. Happy is the portion of those who rise from their beds to study the Torah.
380. When morning comes, the gates on the south, CHESED, are opened and the gates of healing venture into the world. The east wind, ZEIR ANPIN, awakens, Mercy prevails and all the stars and constellations, WHICH ARE GRADES, appointed under the reign of the morning, WHICH IS YESOD, SHINING WITH CHASSADIM, all begin to praise and chant to the supernal King. Hence, "when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of Elohim shouted for joy." HE ASKS, What is the business of the sons of Elohim, BEING JUDGMENT, calling for shouts (lit. 'T'ruah') in this morning, THE TIME OF CHESED, if all Judgments are removed when Chesed awakens in the world? HE ANSWERS, "All the sons of Elohim shouted for joy" MEANS that the strength of the severe Judgments was broken and their power was broken, SINCE SHOUTED (HEB. YARIU) LITERALLY MEANS SHATTERED, as written, "The earth is utterly broken down (Heb. roa'h)" (Yeshayah 24:19).
381. This all happened, THAT THE SEVERE JUDGMENTS WERE BROKEN, because the morning arose in the world, WHICH IS YESOD, and Abraham, CHESED, awakened and went to plant a tamarisk in Beer-Sheva, A TAMARISK BEING ZEIR ANPIN AND BEER-SHEVA BEING MALCHUT. FOR THROUGH ABRAHAM, WHO IS CHESED, ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT WERE UNITED. I heard that it was indeed in Beer-Sheva, WHICH IS MALCHUT. It is also written, "And called there on the name of Hashem, the everlasting El" (Beresheet 21:33); NAMELY, THE UNISON OF ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT AS HASHEM IS ZEIR ANPIN AND THE EVERLASTING EL IS MALCHUT.
