“ו (Vav), embracing all, revealing all. For whatever is concealed reveals everything concealed; one who is revealed does not come and reveal what is concealed” (Zohar 1:117b).

“When it arouse in thought before the blessed Holy One to create this world with this Name, to extend a קָו (qav), cord (Isaiah 44:13) and erect Mount Moriah by His qualities, it pleased אֱלֹהִים (Elohim) to rest on this mountain…. With this Name He established the world, hung over its position. He built the Temple such that through screens light without end and without limit might dwell and illumine” (Berit Menuḥa, Introduction).
