Moses says that every precept has ten Sfirot in it. He speaks about the three stories of the ark, and the priests, Levites and Yisrael; he says that the ark as a whole, that is the Shechinah, is with them. We learn that the Name Yud Hei Vav Hei has dominion over the image of man and over every one of his limbs.

לֵית פִּקּוּדָא, דְּלָא אִתְכְּלִילוּ תַּמָּן עֲשַׂר סְפִירוֹת. בַּתֵּיבָה תַּחְתִּיִּים שְׁנִיִּים וּשְׁלִישִׁים תַּעֲשֶׂיהָ. לְאַכְלְלָא בָּהּ, כֺּהֲנִים לְוִיִּם וְיִשְׂרְאֵלִים. תֵּיבָה שְׁכִינָה עִמְּהוֹן, תּוֹרַת יְיָ', אִיהִי רְבִיעִית הַהִין, ה' רְבִיעָאָה. וּמְשׁוּלֶּשֶׁת בְּיה"ו, לְאַשְׁלְמָא בֵּיהּ יֱדֺוִ"ד. וְעַשְׂרָה דַּרְגִּין דְּאִתְכְּלִילוּ בֵּיהּ, דְּאִינּוּן יוֹ"ד הֵ"א וָא"ו הֵ"א. לְאִתְקַיְּימָא בְּהוּ בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל, וְאַתֶּם הַדְּבֵקִים בַּיְיָ' אֱלֹהֵיכֶם וְגוֹ', בָּנִים אַתֶּם לַיְיָ' אֱלֹהֵיכֶם. הַאי שְׁמָא שֻׁלְטָנוּתֵיהּ בְּצוּלְמָא דְּבַר נָשׁ, וְעַל כָּל אֵבֶר וְאֵבֶר דִּילֵיהּ.


Please use a Transliteration tool to read the Aramaic Verses. This enhances the energy transfer since it uses both sight of the Hebrew Letters and Sound as well. You may find a transliteration tool on the dailyzohar website or through an internet search for "Hebrew Transliteration".


There is no precept but that has ten Sfirot included in it. Of the ark IT IS WRITTEN, "with lower, second, and third stories shall you make it" (Beresheet 6:16), to include in it the priests, Levites and Yisrael, WHO ARE CHESED, GVURAH AND TIFERET. The ark AS A WHOLE, WHICH IS the Shechinah, is with them. The Torah of Hashem, WHICH IS THE SHECHINAH, is the fourth part of a hin, NAMELY, FOURTH TO CHESED, GVURAH AND TIFERET, a fourth letter IN THE NAME YUD HEI VAV HEI. It is trebled by RECEIVING THE THREE LETTERS Yud Hei Vav, to complete it into A NAME OF FOUR LETTERS, Yud Hei Vav Hei. Ten grades are included in it, NAMELY, IT RECEIVES THEM FOR THE SAKE OF YISRAEL, which are Yud Vav Dalet, Hei Aleph, Vav Aleph Vav, Hei Aleph, TEN LETTERS THROUGH WHICH it shall be fulfilled in Yisrael, "But you that did cleave of Hashem your Elohim" (Devarim 4:4), and, "You are the children of Hashem your Elohim" (Devarim 14:1). For this name, YUD HEI VAV HEI, FULLY SPELLED WITH ALEPHS, has dominion over the image of man and over each and every limb of his.
