It says in the parsha “You who cleave in YHV”H Elohech”a are alive this day”. So we see it is by cleaving in GOD that we are given, draw life force. To recieve this life force by cleaving we make attachment to GOD through the mitzvot. As the root of the word mitzvah means attachment. Yisrael are born from the ”house of GOD”. Here they cleave in ” the portion of יהו”ה is His people”. So they may inherit what is fit for them of Torah and mitzvot from treasury of GOD this is their crown. This treasury is from the 32 paths Chuchmah. 1 Serve from the love of GOD in your Teffila with all your heart and all your soul. Spill out your soul in teffila and cleave to him. This is all to your good love the “midah” called מ”ה. In it are hidden the 100 blessings. Walk in all yours way so to invite to receive flow of the way. These are then supernal days.2 Rabbi Avraham Abulafia teaches in Aor haSachel that the חושק (desire) that is given in the heart of desire is a witness to the the love of הו”א . If from between 2 loves she (the soul) has within one being the intellect from partnership with GOD, and the intellect of man. They are one as the Name is one. Becouse of the חבור (union) in the existence of the nature of man with the existence of אלהו (his God) in time he has comprehension in intellect. In this power man is able to connect below and cleave in the עליון (supernal) and bring it down. The thing he raises up calling out recieves a kiss. As the groom kisses the bride in much great desire. And He is delighted both by the desire and the power of the name.3 If a man gives his heart and dat to the fear of GOD, behold the letters of יהו”ה cleave in his heart. One who merits this has no lack. But if his heart lacks fear of GOD, the letters of יהו”ה are far from him. This is the greatest possible lack. This is what it means “Make Me a migdosh (temple), and I will dwell in them”. One sanctifies their heart so as to have dwell in it יהו”ה.4 All the power GOD gives to man by his Dat, his power of speech and intellect, this is GOD’s place in the world.5 Its also written in the parsha “Guard and do the commandments this is you wisdom in the eyes of the nations.” This reminds us that their ways are not our ways our wisdom is prescribed in the Torah. We sanctify GOD’s name by being a light to the nations by acting according to the Torah. We must not be like a dog who looks to the nations as its master and is always trying to find favor before them. As the Israeli government does when killing the people of Sderot by Hamas hands to continue appeasing the Quartet. (only after responding with strong military force in Gazza did the rocket assault stop) Or their abandoning the Grave of our forefather Yosef to the Arabs. Or refusing to let Jews live on our holy Land ,or even worse kicking jews out of there homes and giving the land over to arab terrorists. Surely these disgusting things are only a desecration of our Holy Torah. We can not have leaders in this country that act as such. If we cleave to GOD and we work to have leaders of our nation that are true to GOD we shall see as the Prophet Michah describes this time ” I will make her the remnant halted, daughter of Zion, to you shall it come. There will come the first government, the kingdom to the daughter of Jerusalem. Now why does she cry badly, because she has no king, and her counselor has perished? For pangs have taken you as a woman in labor. Be in pain and labor to bring forth, oh daughter of Zion ”. (4:7 – 10) The Maharol of Prague Wrote that in the future the messianic king will establish a new kingdom which will emerge from the first kingdom which will precede it. It is as a unripe fruit grows in a peel till the fruit is ripe, then the peel decays. And as it says in our parsha “you will be a Holy people am segulah” (Nation treasured by God). With the arrival of our Mashiach Quickly. 1.Marachot Elokim 2.Safer HaKanah 3.Aor HaSachel 4.Alp Bet p.161 5.Avodat Yisrael p.11 I noticed this verse : “The punishment of your iniquity is accomplished, daughter of Zion; he will no more carry you away into exile; he will visit your iniquity, O daughter of Edom; he will uncover your sins.” (lamentations 4:22) There shall be no more exile of the Nation of Israel from their land. This verse affirms this. Another interesting thought “The Lord your God will raise to you a Prophet from your midst, from your brothers, like me; to him you shall listen” In this verse the Hebrew word for “like me” is כמני. It has a numerical value of of 120. This is exactly the years in the life of Moses. (Deuteronomy 18:15) “I will raise them a Prophet from among their brothers, like you, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him.” (Deuteronomy 18:18) In this verse the Hebrew word for “like you” is כמוך =86 86 is the numerical value of אלהים (God) As in the verse “And this is the blessing, with which Moses the man of God blessed the people of Israel before his death.” (Deut. 33) And also “A Prayer of Moses the man of God,. Lord you have been our dwelling place in all generations.” (Psalm 90) These passages in Deuteronomy passage predict the Messiah,. By these verses we know about the similarities between Moses and the prophet who was to be like him. Who is the Messiah..The Messiah will be a “man of God”, the Messiah will be a “man”. Not God as some may think. In our parsha is also the 2nd version of the 10 commandments. Maybe great secrets can be learned from the differences in the 2 texts in the Torah of the Ten commandments
The 10 commandments as they appear in both of the Torah’s original account of the Revelation at Sinai in Shemot 20 and in Moshe’s later retelling of the event in Devarim 5. The two versions contain differences, additions, omissions, and substitutions. They are as follows:
- Reason for Shabbat – The reason given for keeping Shabbat is different in each set of commandments. Shemot 20:10 speaks of the creation of the world, while Devarim 5:14 mentions the enslavement and Exodus from Egypt. This is the only distinction which encompasses a full verse.
- Additional phrases – “כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוְּךָ ה’ אֱלֹהֶיךָ” (Devarim 5:11, 15), “וְשׁוֹרְךָ וַחֲמֹרְךָ וְכָל” (Devarim 5:13), “לְמַעַן יָנוּחַ עַבְדְּךָ וַאֲמָתְךָ כָּמוֹךָ” (Devarim 5:13), “וּלְמַעַן יִיטַב לָךְ” (Devarim 5:15), and “שָׂדֵהוּ” (Devarim 5:17).
- Word substitutions – “שָׁמוֹר” / “זָכוֹר” (Shemot 20:7, Devarim 5:11), “עֵד שָׁוְא” / “עֵד שָׁקֶר” (Shemot 20:12, Devarim 5:16), and “וְלֹא תִתְאַוֶּה” / “לֹא תַחְמֹד” (Shemot 20:13, Devarim 5:17).
- Ordering – The order of the list of objects not to be coveted varies between the two versions (Shemot 20:13, Devarim 5:17).
- Single letter variations – There are thirteen small discrepancies related to extra / missing וי”ו ( written חסר) / (מלא) full spellings.
- Masoretic divisions – In two places (after “שְׁמוֹ לַשָּׁוְא” and “אֲשֶׁר לְרֵעֶךָ”), Masoretic manuscripts like Codex Leningrad display an open section in Shemot 20 but a closed section in Devarim 5.
