מכלל הספירות שנשברו וירדו מתבררים חלקים מה שמתבררים, ועולים לקבל אורותיהם באצילות, וזה על ידי הנוק’ שמעלה אותם כך. וכנגדם יורדים מדרגות מן המ”ה, כלי ואור, ומתחברים עמהם, וזה על ידי הזכר שממשיך אותם כך, ונותן אותם בנוק’.
אף על פי כן בתיקון הכלים העולים על ידי הנוק’ נכנס גם הזכר, והוא מתקן הימין שבהם, והנקבה מתקנת השמאל שבהם. ואחר כך מתחברים החלקים ביחד. וכן מתחבר מ”ה עם כל אחד מהם, ונשלמת התולדה:
Out of all of the Sephirot in BaN that were broken and that descended down to Briah in the Shevira process, those parts that were to be clarified were indeed clarified, and they, i.e., their vessels, ascended to receive their lights that remained in Atzilut by means of Nukveh, which elevated them that way. Alternatively, all the levels of MaH, both the vessels and lights that joined with them descended by means of the male, i.e., the Yesod of Adam Kadmon, that drew them downward this way and placed them in Nukveh.
Nevertheless, the male also took part in the repair of the vessels that ascended through the female: the male repaired the right side, while the female repaired their left side. The parts then joined together in Nukveh, and MaH joined with every one of them, as a result of which the resulting offspring wassa complete.
