Araboth

Araboth (ORBTh) is the highest heaven of Yetzirah and corresponds to the sephira of the highest trinity




In mundane language the word Araboth would be translated as `deserts', however this carries connotations of the absence of life and so in this context it is usually translated as `Plains'. It refers to a large and empty expanse.
It is that emptiness which is, paradoxically, most full. It is the emptiness of particular forms, in which all forms find their source. Its equation is -infinity + infinity = 0; all things are contained herein, negated in their balance.

The word occurs in Psalm 68:4 `Extol him who rides upon the Araboth' in which it is usually translated simply as the highest heaven.
In the Zoharic commentary on Exodus it is referred to thus: `Be glad in the presence of him who rides upon that concealed heaven which is supported by the Chayoth.
The Zohar also interprets the word to mean `mixture' because, it says, this heaven is a mixture of fire and water. In fact, the word `mixed' is usually given as ORB, so ORBTh, with the addition of Tau may be taken to mean `mixed matter'.
