Vayikra: Chapter 63

"Hashem has sworn by His right hand"


We learn that whenever a man sins before God there is a grade above that corresponds to this particular sin, and it examines and judges the man. If he repents the sin is erased, but if he does not repent the sin is recorded in that grade. If he keeps on sinning he adds grade upon grade until he reaches five grades. Then judgment is made complete and rests on the man, and the left is included within the right.
