Hi there,

I don't understand why sometimes you use:
"In wisdom Elohim creates." https://gnosticteachings.org/courses/alphabet-of-kabbalah/713-beth.html
And other times:
"In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth." https://gnosticteachings.org/courses/kabbalah-4-seven-days-of-genesis/173-the-first-day-of-genesis.html

I would like to interpret the story. Can you point me to the version that uses "In wisdom" please?

"There are in scripture two mentioned words that means beginning (ראשית rashyth and תחלת tahaloth),
and are united into one,
first, "reverence to Iod-Havah is rashyth - יראת יהוה ראשית"
second, "the beginning of Wisdom - תחלת חכמה tahaloth chokmah,"
both one and the same meaning, and never found disjoined from each other."

"This is one of the reasons why the Scripture begins with the letter B (the numerical value of which is two) in the word בראשית-Barashyth,, B-ב---'two,' ראשית rashith--'beginning,' that is to say, (creation starts by תחלת tahaloth) by the second 'beginning,' or, in other words, תחלת חכמה יהוה יראת tahaloth chokmah Iod-Havah Iroth (the beginning of wisdom is reverence to Iod-Havah)" - Zohar

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
