Chesed is the Fourth Sephiroth in the kabalistic Tree of Life.

Other names: Gedulah - glory, love, The Farmlands of Work

The Fourth Path is called the Cohesive or Receptive Intelligence because it contains all the Holy Powers, and from it emanate all the spiritual virtues with the most exalted essences. They emanate one from another by virtue of the Primordial Emanation, the Highest Crown, Kether.
