Edom

Genesis 36:1 This is the account of Esau (that is, Edom).


The first stage of creation is called the Universe of Chaos (Tohu). This is a state where the Vessels, which were the primitive Ten Sefirot, could receive God's Light, but could neither give nor interact. Insofar as they did not resemble God, these Vessels were incomplete, and therefore, they could not hold the Light. Since they could not fulfil their purpose, they were overwhelmed by the Light and "shattered." This is the idea of the "Breaking of the Vessels" [...] This "Breaking of the Vessels" is alluded to in the Midrash, which states that "God created universes and destroyed them." It is also alluded to in the Torah, in the account of the Kings of Edom, at the end of Genesis 36. The death of each of these Kings is said to infer the shattering of a particular Vessel and its falling to a lower level, such a fall being referred to as "death." After having been shattered, the Vessels were then rectified and rebuilt into the Partzufim. Each of these Partzufim consists of 613 parts, paralleling the 613 parts of the body, as well as the 613 commandments of the Torah. These Partzufim were then able to interact with each other. More important, they then resembled both man and the Torah. There were therefore able to interact with man through the Torah, and they therefore become givers as well as receivers. In their rectified state as Partzufim, the Vessels are then adequate to receive God's Light. In the Ari's terminology, this state is called the Universe of Rectification (Tikkun). [+]

Bahir, by Aryeh Kaplan

Page 82 :: Samael was punished and made the guardian angel over the wicked Esau. In the Future, when God uproots the Kingdom of Edom, he will lower him first. It is thus written (Isaiah 24:21), "God will punish the host of the heights."

Page 90 :: It is also alluded to in the Torah in the account of the Kings of Edom, at the end of Genesis 36. The death of each of these kings is said to infer the shattering of a particular Vessel and its fall to a lower level, such a fall being referred to as "death." For the reason why they are called "kings," see 49.

Page 118 :: 49. The Ten are divided into two groups, seven Voices and ten Sayings. The lowest of the Ten Sefirot are usually called Attributes (Midot), while the highest three are called Mentalities (Mochin). An Attribute is something that is externalized, while a Mentality or mental process is completely internal. Similarly, a "voice" is externalized, while a "saying" without a voice is not. The Ten Kings mentioned here are the same as those in 27. The Sefirot are called Kings in many places in Kabbalistic literature, especially in their state in the Universe of Chaos before the rectification (see comment on 11). These are alluded to by the Kings of Edom at the end of Genesis 36. They are called "kings," since a king only takes from his subjects, and does not contribute to the economy of his kingdom. Similarily, these Sefirot of the Universe of Chaos could only receive, but could not give.
