The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: netzach

DEFINITIONS

Netzach: The seventh Sephirah of the cabalistic Tree of Life, the lowest Sephirah on the Pillar of Mercy. The term is a Hebrew word meaning "Victory." It represents the archetype of the number 7, the raw creative aspect of the Godhead. It corresponds to the divine name YHVH Tzabaoth, the archangel Haniel, the angelic choir called Elohim (gods), and Nogah, or heavenly Sphere of Venus.
source: Godwin's Cabalistic Encyclopedia, by David Godwin

Netzach: The beams of Chesed and of Tiphareth meet in Netzach and thence in Netzach arises a green, pure, brilliant, liquid, and gleaming like an emerald. And the Sphere of its operations is that of Nogah of External Splendour, producing zeal, love, harmony, and it ruleth the Sphere of Action of the Planet Venus and the nature of the vegetable World. And Jehovah Tzabaoth is a God of Hosts and of Armies, of Triumph and of Victory, ruling the Universe in justice and Eternity. And its Archangel Hanial is the Prince of Love and Harmony, and the Name of the Order of Angels is Elohim or Gods who are also called the Order of Principalities. The Angel Cerviel is also referred unto this Sephira.
