Admitting Divine Justice


Tehillim 84:7 says: “Those who pass through the valley of tears will turn it into a spring; the early rain will cloak it in blessings.”

"‘Those who pass through’ are the people who violate Gd’s desires.
"‘The valley’ is deepened for them in Gehennom.
"‘Of tears’ – They cry and produce tears, like a spring.
"‘The early rain will cloak it in blessings’ – they declare the judgment to be righteous, saying, ‘Master of the Universe, You have judged well, You have found merit well, You have found liability well, You have prepared Gehennom for the wicked and Gan Eden for the righteous well.’"

(Talmud, Eruvin 19a)

Have a great day,
