Torah, “Deuteronomy,” 02:01 – 02:06: Then we turned and journeyed into the desert by way of the Red Sea, as the Lord had spoken to me, and we circled Mount Seir for many days. And the Lord spoke to me, saying, “You have circled this mountain long enough; turn northward. And command the people saying, “You are about to pass through the boundary of your kinsmen, the children of Esau, who dwell in Seir, and they will be afraid of you. Be very careful. You shall not provoke them, for I will not give you any of their land not so much as a foot step, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau for an inheritance. You shall buy food from them with money, that you may eat, and also water you shall buy from them with money, that you may drink.”
Esau and Lot are the closest “relatives” of the quality of bestowal; they can be corrected, but not yet.
While under the rule of Pharaoh (common egoism), I earned the part that I was able to extract from him because I suffered while I was working, was captive of egoism; I was artificially placed there and not willingly. However I invested great efforts into work with the egoism and now everything that I got in Egypt, meaning all these forces and comprehension I took from there I can use for correction.
By this I allegedly exchange my knowledge and strength for work with egoism called Lot and Esau. I can take food from them and exchange it for silver. Silver is the quality of bestowal, Bina. Gold is the quality of Malchut.
