Ki Tetze: Chapter 3

"and she shall be his wife"


We read about the precept for one to marry the woman he violated. An allegory is used to show how the soul reincarnates with its evil inclination from a previous life, and how that evil inclination or demon can be turned back into an angel through repentance and worship. Some students of the Torah are like the ministering angels in that they know about the past and the future; many other people are like beasts who hate the Torah students and sages of the Mishnah.
