From all of this [that we have learned], we are able to see the greatness of the caution that each person needs to take with respect to himself, to refrain from arguing for the guilt of the Jewish People, and, on the contrary, he should constantly accustom himself to arouse [Heavenly] mercy [upon them] and to mention their meritorious deeds, and because of this, he will be loved and desired before The Holy One, Blessed is He, as we find in [maseches] Yoma (77a), with regard to [the angel] Gavriel, at the time that he stood outside the partition [in Heaven], and aroused [the] merit of Israel, The Holy One, Blessed is He, responded: Who is this one who argued [for the] merit of My children? As a result of this [action], they brought [Gavriel] up within [the area surrounded by the partition], see over there, [in maseches Yoma].
 This teaching from the Zohar Chadash is found in the Midrash HaNe’elam, Parshas Noach.
 “Ploni” is often used to refer to an anonymous individual.
 [Note from "Kol HaLashon: See the Ba”Ch on this gemara].
 The gemara discusses of a terrible sin that was being committed at the Beis HaMikdash, for which HaShem commanded Gavriel to have coals taken from the Kiruvim to be thrown on the city of Jerusalem. Gavriel had the Kiruv take the coals first and give them to him, thus allowing the fire of the coal and the punishment of the Jewish People to be lightened. For not following HaShem’s command, Gavriel was punished with sixty lashes of fire and being sent outside the partition in Heaven. Gavriel was permitted back in to the area surrounded by the partition after defending the Jewish People from the request of Dubiel, the angel of Persia who wanted the nations to have dominion over the Jewish scholars. Thereupon, Gavriel was again allowed within the partition.
In the gemara, Rabbi Chana bar Bizna said in the name of Rabbi Shimon Chasidah said that the Jewish People would not have had a [surviving] remnant had the coals from the Kiruvim had not been cooled down.
