Petach 93

היות המשפט עצמו יוצא רק מענין ההטבה הגמורה, הוא גורם מיתוק למשפט עצמו. כי סוף סוף כוונת המלך הוא רק להיטיב, אלא שצריך המשפט כדי לבוא אל ההטבה השלמה. מה שאינו כן אם לא היה המשפט רק לנקום מן החוטאים.

וזה ענין שא”א ממתק דיני הז”א רק בכח המצאו לבד, על ידי מה שהוא פועל לפי עצמו, אפילו לא יגביר עליו הארותיו להעביר הדין שלו:

The very fact that judgment emerges for the meanwhile for the sake of utter benevolence alone actually mitigates judgment. For a king’s ultimate goal is to be benevolent. It’s just that judgment is necessary in the world, and why? so as to achieve perfect benevolence in the end, which wouldn’t be the case if the only point of judgment was to take revenge on sinners.

The point is that it’s Erich Anpin’s own makeup that mitigates the judgments of Zeir Anpin by means of Erich’s actions even without also intensifying its irradiations over Zeir Anpin in order to remove the latter’s Judgment.
