Pinchas: Chapter 82

"Whatever the Elohim does, it shall be forever"


Rabbi Shimon explains about the tree that is Zeir Anpin and that is the Torah on which faith is suspended. He says that God is, was, and will be - nothing can be added to Him or taken from Him. He then talks about a lower tree that is Malchut, that is nourished from the upper tree, and concludes by saying that only those who are fit should come close to God, and that all others should be afraid.
