9. ...and let the dry land [YBShH, hsby] appear: and it was so.

10. And God called the dry land Earth [ARTz, Ura]; and the gathering
together of the waters He called Seas [YMYM, Mymy]: and God saw that it
was good.50

The path of Dalet (D, d) and its associated sefirah Geburah both appear as a
relationship is established between the sefirot Keter and Binah.

In Sefer Berashit 1:10 Geburah is referred to as Earth51

(ARTz, Ura). It is the

principle distributor of Judgement52

(Shin-Fire) to the lower sefirot. In Sefer
Berashit
1:9 Earth (Geburah) and the Seas (Hesed) are said to manifest
simultaneously as if to emulate the earlier manifestation of the Darkness and
Light principles (i.e. of Binah and Hockmah). These analogies used by the Sefer
Berashit
to describe the Creation process are perfectly apposite because as Light
becomes localised (and constrained) within space Darkness simultaneously
encroaches upon it; and likewise, as the waters of the ocean are pulled back dry
land simultaneously appears.

50 Berashit, 1:10.

51 Not to be confused with the Earth symbolism of the sefirah Malkut.

52 This technical term will be explained later in this book. The Hebrew word used in the Zohar is
mishpat‖ (MShPT, jpsm). (See: The Lesser Holy Assembly, Chapter IX.)

In the next verse (1:11) it will be shown that Earth (i.e. Geburah) produces
‗grass‘ (etc). This symbolises the emergence of the sefirah Hod from Geburah.

Hod

11. And God said, Let the earth [ARTz, Ura] bring forth grass, the herb
yielding seed [ZRO, erz], and the fruit tree yielding fruit [PRY, yrp] after
his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his
kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.

13. And the evening and the morning were the third day.53

Following the manifestation of the sefirah Geburah, a special relationship
becomes established between Binah and Geburah. This dynamic interaction is
represented by the path of Raysh (R, r). The establishment of this relationship
produces (lower down in the Tree) the simultaneous appearance of the sefirah
Hod.

The sefirah Geburah was named Earth in verse 1:10 of the Book of Creation. (See
quote above.) Now, from Geburah arises Hod, or in other words, from Earth
comes ―grass and herb yielding seed‖ (etc).

Significantly, the terms Seed (ZRO, erz) and Fruit (PRY, yrp) mentioned so
prominently in Sefer Berashit 1:11-12 both emphasise the Raysh archetype.

53 Berashit, 1:11-13.
