Sifra d'Zniuta: Revealing Thoughts

My "Sifra d'Zniuta" edition with commentaries from the VILNA GAON and the YEDID NEFESH.

"Sifra d'Zniuta" is part of the ZOHAR and commentating Parashat Terumah. And, as we know, Terumah is this week's Torah Parasha. 

It says that the book reveals thought. A human thought is only being revealed by speech or writing. The same with G - d who revealed His will through creation. For example: By "saying" - Let there be light - G - d revealed His will. 

 "Saying" - G - d speaking is nothing but a metapher, as He didn't need to speak in a literal sense.
