The following chart is used to illustrate some of the relationships that can be discerned from the meaning of ten with it’s divisions. There are several such patterns: 

The seven visible and the three hidden.

The five of heaven and the five of earth.

The Three, Three, Three, and one.

 

Earth

“five opposite five”

Heaven

No man said to his fellow person: “The place is too crowded for me [so] I should lodge in Jerusalem”

[1] Bava Bathra 14b

[2] Rashi from Midrash Psalms 1:6

[3] Ten levels are said here, five against five, and all as one are included among Israel. “Your head,” means those possessing Chachma (wisdom) are placed in juxtaposition to the infants (also small children), for in­fant, taf in Hebrew, is connected to the word for “drop,” tipah in He­brew, meaning that they possess only a small amount of consciousness (da at, also “knowledge”). Then accordingly, when any mistake happens even to the youngest children, it affects even the heads, for the taf pos­sessed a little consciousness from the head. “Your tribes,” meaning ex­pansion, for all of Israel were hidden in the root ofYaakov Avinu, and there they were as one soul. Thus when they were divided into tribes certain souls in different generations experienced expansion. This is placed in juxtaposition to the women, because all expansion comes from birth, for when the child is hidden and included in the soul of the father then there is no expansion; only when the child is bom does it begin to expand. “Your elders” means the one who has acquired wisdom.

This is juxtaposed to “your convert,” for according to the original in­sights into the Torah made among Israel, so will the converts come to and increase in Israel. The more we increase in the words of Torah, and thus experience more expansion, then the holiness of Israel extends even to the souls of the nations, and they will be gathered among Israel. “Your officers” meaning those possessing the fear of God, and they are placed in juxtaposition to the “wood choppers,” for “chopping” repre­sents anger, and on this the Holy One, blessed be He, testifies that within all the anger in Israel there is the fear of God. “Every man of Israel” means the attribute of the love of God, and this is placed against the “water carriers,” for water is compared to desire, as said in various places,3® and all desire and love in Israel comes from the blessed God.
