Zohar Commentary on Parasha TAZRIA


Rabbi Chizkiyah tells us that God does His deeds with wisdom, wisely sowing all the seeds so that each matures in its own time. "The earth is full" means that the earth has been filled by everything that flows from Binah.

Pasook 11. from the Zohar Commentary on Parasha Tazria

אִשָּׁה כִּי תַזְרִיעַ. רִבִּי חִזְקִיָּה פָּתַח, מַה רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יְיָ'. כַּמָה סַגִּיאִין עוֹבָדוֹהִי דְּמַלְכָּא קַדִּישָׁא בְּעָלְמָא, מְתַל לב"נ דְּנָטִיל בִּידוֹהִי כַּמָה מַקְטוּרִין כַּחֲדָא, וְזָרַע לוֹן בְּזִמְנָא חֲדָא, וּלְבָתַר נָפִיק כָּל חַד וְחַד בִּלְחוֹדוֹי. כַּךְ קוּדְשָׁא בְּרִיךְ הוּא עֲבִיד עוֹבָדוֹהִי בְּחָכְמָה, וּבְחָכְמָה נָטִיל כֺּלָּא כַּחֲדָא וְזָרַע לוֹן, וּלְבָתַר נָפְקוּ כָּל חַד וְחַד בְּזִמְנֵיהּ, הה"ד כֻּלָּם בְּחָכְמָה עָשִׂיתָ.

"If a woman have conceived seed" (Vayikra 12:2). Rabbi Chizkiyah opened with the verse, "Hashem, how manifold are Your works" (Tehilim 104:24). How many are the deeds of the Holy King in the world. This is likened to a man who took different kinds of seeds together and planted them at the same time. Afterwards each kind sprouts on its own. The Holy One, blessed be He, similarly does His deeds with wisdom, wisely taking everything together and planting them. Afterwards each comes out in its own time. This is the meaning of, "in wisdom have You made them all" (Ibid.).

chanoch adds: When a man ejaculates there are many thousands of sperm each of which represents a potential soul combination with the egg that comes from the mother. HaShem makes his descision as to which of these soul/sperm/egg combinations will manifest. As the photography demonstrates, once HaShem decides all of the other soul/sperms support that decision by helping the designated sperm to penetrate the egg wall. Some day science will understand what they are looking at in this photography.

Pasook 12. of the Zohar Commentary on Parasha Tazria

אָמַר רִבִּי אַבָּא, מָה רַבּוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יְיָ', כַּמָה סַגִּיאִין אִינּוּן עוֹבָדוֹהִי דְּמַלְכָּא קַדִּישָׁא, וְכֻלְּהוּ, סְתִימִין בְּחָכְמָה, הה"ד כֻּלָּם בְּחָכְמָה עָשִׂיתָ. כֻּלְּהוּ בְּחָכְמָה כְּלִילָן, וְלָא נָפְקֵי לְבַר אֶלָּא בִּשְׁבִילִין יְדִיעָן, לְגַבֵּי בִּינָה. וּמִתַּמָּן, אִתְעָבֵידוּ כֺּלָּא וְאִתְתְּקָנוּ, הה"ד וּבִתְבוּנָה יִתְכּוֹנָן. וְעַל דָּא כֻּלָּם בְּחָכְמָה עָשִׂיתָ, בְּבִינָה.

Rabbi Aba said, "Hashem, how manifold are Your works." How many are the deeds of the Holy deed. All, EVERYTHING EXISTENT THROUGHOUT THE WORLDS, is hidden with wisdom. Hence it says, "in wisdom have You made them all." They are all incorporated in wisdom and emerge only by means of specific paths, THE 32 PATHS OF WISDOM to Binah. From there, FROM BINAH, everything is made and accomplished. Hence, "by understanding it is established" (Mishlei 24:3). It therefore says, "in wisdom have You made them all" in Binah, THROUGH BINAH.

chanoch adds: This pasook needs to be contemplated upon. Everything is concealed with wisdom means all creatures and creations must first be concealed and nurtured to its specific size and state of consciousness where it can be revealed after this period of gestation within the mother. Every species follows this route. Every creation also follows this path as Rabbi Ashlag teaches in the 4 phases.

Pasook 13. of the Zohar commentary on Parasha Tazria

מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ, הָאָרֶץ: דָּא כ"י, דְּמִתַּמָּן אִתְמַלְּיָא מִכֺּלָּא, כד"א כָּל הַנְּחָלִים הוֹלְכִים אֶל הַיָּם וְגוֹ'. קִנְיָנֶיךָ. דְּהִיא אַפִּיקַת לוֹן לְבָתַר, הה"ד אֵלֶּה תוֹלְדוֹת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְהָאָרֶץ בְּהִבָּרְאָם, בְּה' בְּרָאָם. בְּגִינֵי כַּךְ מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ קִנְיָנֶיךָ.

"The earth is full" (Tehilim 104:24) : the earth is the Congregation of Yisrael, WHICH IS MALCHUT, which is filled of all things from there, FROM BINAH, as written, "All the rivers run into the sea" (Kohelet 1:7). "Your creatures" were brought forth by MALCHUT afterwards, as written, "These are the generations of the heaven and of the earth when they were created (Heb. behibr'am)" (Beresheet 2:4), WHICH CAN BE CONSTRUED AS 'BEHEI BERA'AM (HE CREATED THEM WITH HEI)'. IT IS MALCHUT, THE LAST HEI OF YUD HEI VAV HEI. For that reason, "the earth is full of Your creatures."

chanoch adds: This last pasook is explaining why there are so many different types of species of insects and animals. Everything comes through Binah meaning understanding yet this is not yet complete. The Creature must also loose its essence and then be manifested in the actual Malchut, the physical world. It is in this process of loss and manifestation that all of the species develop, in my opinion.
