273. He asks, "But I will correct you in due measure (lit. 'for justice)" (Yirmeyah 30:11). This verse should read: "But I will correct you in justice," since when does one have torment? When he is sentenced on trial. So, what is the meaning of: "But I will correct you for justice?" HE ANSWERS, It is only because it is written: "Hashem will come with trial with the elders of His nation" (Yeshayah 3:14). On that day, the Holy One, blessed be He, introduce a remedy for Yisrael before they are put on trial, in order that they would be able to withstand it. What is that remedy? At every moment, the Holy One, blessed be He, provides them with a slight amount of suffering at each and every time and in each generation, in order that when they rise to the day of the great trial, AT THE TIME when the dead will be resurrected, judgment will not affect them.
