Behold, the Arizal has written that Eretz Yisrael had ten nations living in her, for they correspond to the ten attributes she has. Yet the Jews only conquered seven of those nations. Parallel to the ten attributes of holiness there exist ten attributes of defilement. Of the ten attributes of defilement, the Jews were only able to vanquish the lower seven. Yet the three upper attributes, they were unable to succeed, for those three are very great and intangible. Their correspondence is as follows:

The Kini correspond to the Land's bina that is why the value of Kini is 161, which is indicative of bina. The Kenizi correspond to her chochma, which is called zaken [elderly, the same letters which spell Kenaz -the county of the Kenizi], as our sages have written in Kidushin 32b, "Zaken — is he who has acquired chochma — wisdom." Therefore the chochma of the kelipa is called Keniz. The Kadmoni correspond to her keter, and inclusively it is called Eretz Canaan, for Canaan is that which corresponds to her malchut. She, the malchut, contains within her all that is above her.

Being that Rachel is Eve [value = 19], which is the spelling-out of the name YHVH-Mah [26 +19 = 45].1 The ten attributes that she contains have a value of ten times 19, equaling 190. Hence we see the numerical value of Canaan [20 + 50 +70 + 50] equals 190. That is "Kaitz HaYamin — the end of days [implying the world to come]" (Daniel 12:13). Yet what is opposite that is "Kaitz HaYamim" [implying the Angel of Death].

In my impoverished opinion, that when Moses said, "And it shall come to pass when I bring you into Eretz HaCanaanY" (Ex. 13:5), the yud and hei had entered the "land of the living". Eretz HaCanaanY [291 + 205] has the same numerical value as malchut [496 - The addition of the yud hei enables the land to fully complete malchut]. That is why the verse says, "Open for me the gates of righteousness, I shall enter them and thank Y-h" (Psalms 118:19).

She is then called Eretz HaKedosha, for she subsequently contains within her the Kodesh HaKedoshim

The Divine influence of the chochma and bina of the malchut is as follows: The chochma provides ten miluim of the name Av, which is ten times 46. [The milui of Av is 46, derived from the value of the letters that "fill" the spelling of the letters of YHVH where the Heis are spelled with yuds. Yvd, Hy, Vyv, Hy. The bolded letters value 26 and the one that "fill" them equal 46.] Bina provides ten miluim of YHVH of Sag, which is ten times 37. [The milui of Sag works the same as above yet with the difference of the vav being spelled with an alef, hence 37.] These are the mystery of the verse, "Then G‑d fashioned the side that he had taken from Adam, into a woman, and He brought her to Man" (Gen. 2:22). [That when she was brought in front of Adam then they could connect.] Then the partzuf of Rachel can connect with Zeir Anpin, otherwise known as Yisrael. Then she [Rachel] is called Eretz Yisrael [291 + 541 = 832], whose numerical value is the same as the value of the two miluim plus the two kolels [460 + 370 +2 = 832].

It is also known that the name Yud-Hei has three different miluim: with yuds, alefs and heis.

Yud [YVD = 10+6+4 = 20] X Hei [HY 10+5 = 15] = 300 [the value of shin].

Yud [YVD = 10+6+4 = 20] X Hei [HA = 5+1 = 6] = 120.

Yud [YVD = 10+ 6 + 4 = 20] X Hei [HH = 5+5 = 10] = 200 [the value of reish].

All together they total [300+200+120 =] 620, which equals the word "keter". If we add to that the three spellings YVD HY, YVD HH, YVD HA, which together equal 91, we arrive at the figure of 711, which equals Eretz HaKedosha [291+420 = 711]. This indicates that at the time that she is receiving from chochma and bina, known as Yud Hei, which also are called Kodesh HaKedoshim, she is then called Eretz HaKedosha, for she subsequently contains within her the Kodesh HaKedoshim [the Holy of Holies].

This is also what Jacob, Zeir Anpin, was hinting at when he said to Laban, the Loven Elyon [the Supernal Whiteness] as is known in the Drush of Adam Kadmon, "Bring me my wife - ishti " (Gen. 29:21) [referring to Rachel]. In other words Jacob [Zeir Anpin] is preparing for and inviting the connection with Rachel [his Nukva]; that is why he used the word "hava" — "bring". What is happening on a deeper plane is that Zeir Anpin is asking of the Supernal Emanation [the Loven Elyon], that, now in the midst of the destruction, a rectification of the Nukva should be made. For through her, after rectification [being called Eretz HaKedosha which is the value of "ishti, my wife": 711, as mentioned above], then he too (Zeir Anpin) will merit to attain the name Yud Hei. That is why the verse continues, "…VaAvoha Aylyha - And I will bring to her" (ibid.); the word aylyha hints to us, ayl -to, YH- the name Yud Hei. [This is how we see his request of the yud and hei to be brought to Rachel.] The intention of this is that at the time of the final redemption, when the Holy Land will be built up and the Holy Temple rebuilt, speedily in our days, which is then the rectification of the malchut of Atzilut, that Zeir Anpin will receive his mochin that are called Yud Hei in completion, and they will never leave him. Then they shall both share one crown as is hinted to in the verse, "And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun" (Isaiah 30:26). Then Zeir Anpin and Nukva shall ascend to the place of chochma and bina in the aspect of Yud Hei. At that point G‑d's name will no longer be YHVH, rather it shall be YHYH. That is hinted at in the verse, "On that day YHYH [will be] G‑d and His name shall be one" (Zachariah 14:9). In Eretz Yisrael, the feminine is constantly connected to the masculine

It is also called Eretz Yisrael, as it says in the Tikunei Zohar, "the realm of Yetzira rules in Eretz Yisrael". This can be understood from the concept that in Yetzira is the place that Zeir Anpin of Atzilut, called Yisrael, pleads. His malchut and yesod are called the "Livnat HaSapir" - "chamber of Sapphires", for they are always open to supply Divine influence to Eretz Yisrael. Just as "Livnat" is feminine, while "Sapir" is masculine, so too "Eretz" is feminine and "Yisrael" is masculine. That is hinted to by virtue of the numerical value of "Livnat Sapir" (482+350=832) equaling that of "Eretz Yisrael" (291+541=832). That shows how they are in line with each other. It is also called Eretz Yisrael for the reason that "The Eyes of G‑d are watching her" (Deut. 11 12) and that the "connection" there is constant. Thus the numerical value of ten times "G‑d He is the Lord" (Kings I 18:39) is equal to that of "Eretz Yisrael". For in Eretz Yisrael, the feminine is constantly connected to the masculine; that is so because the seven lower sefirot are incorporated in the upper three sefirot.

The general rule we can derive from all of the above is that the first three nations, the Kini, Kenizi and Kadmoni, were not inherited by the Jews. Only in the future will the Jews merit them. This is hinted at being that the numerical value of "Kini Kenizi Kadmoni" [170+167+204] equals that of "Yisrael" [541]. Thus the name "Eretz Yisrael" connotes that, in the future, it will include those upper three as well. Nowadays the word "Yisrael" hints at "Lo yarash" - "didn't inherit", meaning the upper three have not yet been attained, yet in the future "Yisrael" will hint to "Li rosh" - "to me as my Head", implying that those three will then be as the head of the lower seven. That is also why the first letters of those three nations are kuf kuf and kuf, which stands for Kadosh Kadosh Kadosh, signifying the three sanctifications of keter chochma and bina of Holiness.

Because G‑d promised Abraham that he would give his descendents all ten nations, at the time of the binding of Isaac, G‑d told Abraham, "Go to yourself, to the land of the Moriah" (Gen. 22:2). This is a hint to Abraham that the upper three together with the kolel of all ten nations [541+10 = 551] is the numerical value of "Land of Moriah [Eretz Hamoriah" = 291+260=551]. Hamoriah is also comprised of the letters that spell "ha'rem Y-h" [Exult Yud Hei]. In other words, we had only inherited the seven lower ones alone, yet, regarding the upper three known as Yud Hei — "lift them up" [ha'rem], in the future at the final redemption. Had Moses attained…Yechida, he would have had the power to attain the upper three for Eretz Yisrael

The time that the Jews were unable to conquer those upper three was dependent on Moses, for, despite his most lofty spiritual stature, he still had not attained the level of Yechida; Yechida is the aspect of the keter of Atzilut, which incorporates within itself the chochma bina and daat [73+67+480 = 620], for their numerical value is the same as keter [620]. Rather, the highest Moses was able to attain was that level of Chaya, which is the chochma of Atzilut, as is known from Sefer Hagilgulim. Had Moses attained the level of Yechida, he would have had the power to attain the upper three for Eretz Yisrael and extract from them all aspects of holiness. When Mashiach will be revealed, he will merit the level of Yechida. That will be the source of his strength and ability to attain those upper three for all of Yisrael. G‑d saw, however, that the Jews were going to make the Golden Calf, hence He only promised Moses the land of seven nations. It was for that very reason that Moses himself wasn't able to attain the level of Yechida.

The Midrash in Yalkut Shimoni writes, "The Rabbis say that the three nations that will in the future be given over to the children of Yisrael are the Edomites, the Moabites, and the Children of Ammon, as is written, "For I shall not give you an inheritance from their land" (Deut. 2 9). Regarding Moab it writes, "Do not distress." (ibid.) Kini is Esau, Kenizi is Ammon and Kadmoni is Moab. In the days of Mashiach they will all be given over to the Children of Israel to fulfill G‑d's promise. At the time that all of the Jews shall enter the land, the land will be fulfilled

Know that the land of Sichon and Og are part of the borders of those three nations. It is for this reason that the children of Gad and Reuben chose those areas as their portion of land, for in the future that parcel of land shall be elevated to the level of the three upper sefirot of Holiness, even though they will not be sanctified until after the redemption. It is probably for that very reason that Moses is buried there, for he corresponds to the aspect of daat [one of the upper three sefirot].
