The ninth and tenth precepts explained by the Zohar are compassion and veneration, which are hidden in the book of Genesis: "And your compassion and your veneration shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that creeps on the ground, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered." ￼- Genesis 9:2. These precepts are intimately related with our sexual life, and prayer.
"And Elohim said [to the alchemists], behold, I have given you [the Chaiah or soul of the mercury of] every חיה herb bearing [זרע zera semen or brute mercury or] seed, which is upon the face of all the earth and [the Chaiah חיה or soul of the mercury of] every tree, which is in the fruit of a tree yielding zera semen or brute זרע[ mercury or] seed; to you it shall be for food. - Genesis 1:29
