1331 Ten Sefirot of the Tree of Life

1331 MK

The beginning of Genesis in the Torah repeats the phrase “vayomer” (and God said…), ten times, such as: “and God said, let there be light.” Each of these is ten repetitions is viewed by Jewish mystics as the creation of one of the primordial emanations (sefirot) which are the foundation of the Creation. Speech thus is viewed as more primordial than vision, for sound preceded light.
