Question: It says: “And if a man lies carnally with a woman, and she is a handmaid designated for a man, and she had not been [fully] redeemed nor had her document of emancipation been granted her, there shall be an inquisition; they shall not be put to death, because she had not been completely free.” What does that mean?
Answer: It means that the male and female parts of the Partzuf do not match and the male part cannot work with this desire.
A person wants to bestow, to work for the Creator, to perform a spiritual action, but he has not fully clarified and examined his desire yet. Being in certain attributes, he doesn’t know that he cannot work with Malchut. There are many different options here.
It turns out that there is no contact between the first nine Sefirot and the tenth part of the desire. Malchut is not suitable for it yet and so it turns out that it isn’t free, engaged, etc. with regard to it.
It is about the partial correction of a person’s desire with which he really and candidly wants to work in order to bestow but has failed. Although later he does correct the desire to the end.
“They shall not be put to death, because she had not been completely free” means that we should bring a sacrifice, the addition necessary for forgiveness. To forgive means either to add your own correction of the female part and thus become one Partzuf with it, as it says: “and will become his wife”; or simply grant atonement for his action since the Light enters the female part of the desire and this should be corrected so that the female part should return to its previous state.
