Petach 62

בספירות ב”ן נשרשים כל דברי הקלקולים, דהיינו כל מה שנותן מקום לפגמים להימצא, ואחריהם לעונשים. בספירות מ”ה – כל דברי התיקון, לתקן קלקולים אלה. ולפי ההנהגה הצריכה, צריך שכל מדרגה תהיה בנויה משניהם. ואז מצד ב”ן שבה – ימצאו כל עניני הרע, ומצד מ”ה – כל עניני הטוב:

All things concerning damage, i.e. everything that allows for defects and their ensuing punishments, are rooted in the Sephirot of BaN, whereas all things concerning repair, that come to repair these defects, are rooted in the Sephirot of MaH.

But each level needs to be comprised of both MaH and Ban for the sake of the sort of governance needed. As a consequence, all aspects of rah exist there under the auspices of BaN within it, while all aspects of good exist there under the auspices of MaH.
