The Inheritance is Reversed

image“Holy of Holies is above, mystery of supernal Wisdom and Jubilee. Correspondingly, Bride and Groom inherit the heritage of Father and Mother, though the inheritance is reversed, in a different manner. Inheritance of Father is possessed by the Daughter in ascension of this name, and She is called similarly Holy, Wisdom [cf. Proverbs 1:20; 7:4; 9:1]. Inheritance of Mother is possessed by the Son, and He is called Holies, since He obtains all those supernal Holies and gathers them in, afterward giving and conveying them to the Bride” (Zohar 2:145b).

“’The face of Moses is as that of the sun’ (BT Bava Batra 75a). A [solar] year contains 365 days. This is the same number, as that of the negative decrees, and this is a witness to the left, and is supernal Mother. The moon, is on the right side, for the daughter is to Father, which is Ḥesed, on the right side. And She is composed of the 248 positive decrees. It follows that ו (vav) [i.e., Tif’eret, the son] is with Mother on the left side, and the daughter is with Father on the right side. And the mystery of the matter is in: Wisdom founded earth (Proverbs 3:19). Wisdom—Father. Earth—Daughter. Set heavens firm through discernment (ibid.)—the Son with Mother, which is תְבוּנָה (Tevunah), Discernment. And this results in [the permutation of] יהוה (YHWH)” (Zohar 3:247b, Ra’aya Meheimna Pineḥas).

And Joseph took the two of them, Ephraim with his right hand to Israel’s left and Manasseh with his left hand to Israel’s right, and brought them near him. And Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim’s head, yet he was younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head—he crossed his hands—though Manasseh was the firstborn… And Joseph saw that his father had placed his right hand on Ephraim’s head, and it was wrong in his eyes, and he took hold of his father’s hand to remove it from Ephraim’s head to Manasseh’s head. And his father refused and he said, ‘I know, my son. I know (Genesis 48:13-17).
