136. The Difference between the First Letters and the Last Letters

I heard on Purim 1947

The difference between the first letters and the last letters is only in the copy of the writing, meaning the content of the writing that was given off the King’s house. And the King’s authors expand the content to make it understandable for all.

The content was merely “that they should be ready against that day.” And the authors interpreted it as applying to the nations, that they are destined to avenge the Jews. And that force was so that Haman would think, “Whom would the king delight to honor besides myself?” Hence, in the last letters he specifically wrote, straight from the King, “that the Jews should be ready.” Conversely, in the first letters he did not specifically write “the Jews.” This is why they had the strength to complain.

The thing is that this force was given because one should not justify any desire for reception of Lights, to extend the Upper Lights below, as the whole work was to bestow. Hence, he cannot extend something from below. Hence, by giving strength to Haman, he specifically wants the greater Lights, as his name testifies, Haman the Agagite, the Gag (roof) of the degree, which is Gar.
