252. We learned that the voice is stopped and Judgments stir four times a year. Penitence then impends until it is made ready. When Judgments stir, a voice resounds and the four corners of the world go up and down. A herald proclaims but no one takes heed to awaken. The Holy One, blessed be He, is ready and in case they repent, JUDGMENTS return TO THEIR PLACES. If they do not, the voice is stopped and the Judgments are enacted. Then He is considered as "it grieves Him at His heart" (Beresheet 6:6), NAMELY in the external houses.
253. Rabbi Yehuda said, We learned that since the Temple was destroyed, not a day passes without evil anger. Why is it so? As we learned, Rabbi Yudai said that Rabbi Yesa said that the Holy One, blessed be He, swore an oath not to enter the celestial Jerusalem, NAMELY MALCHUT, until Yisrael enter the terrestrial Jerusalem. For that reason, there is anger in the world. THE OATH WAS REGARDING PERMANENCE, BECAUSE ON A TEMPORARY BASIS, THERE IS A UNION BETWEEN ZEIR ANPIN AND MALCHUT, EVEN DURING THE DAYS OF EXILE, THAT IS DURING PRAYER SERVICES, ON SHABBAT AND FESTIVALS.
