“You Shall Not Withhold…”

laitman_283_01Torah, Deuteronomy 24:14 – 24:15: You shall not withhold the wages of a poor or destitute hired worker, of your brothers or of your strangers who are in your land within your cities. You shall give him his wage on his day and not let the sun set over it, for he is poor, and he risks his life for it, so that he should not cry out to the Lord against you, so that there should be sin upon you.

All the problems described in the Torah between a human and the still, vegetative, animate, and other people, represent the relationships inside a person, or the relationship between souls, which correct themselves and come to a state of mutual interaction.

Therefore, when it is said about a hired servant, a slave, a neighbor, or your brother, etc., it means how I connect my desires inside myself, and not only mine, but how I connect with other desires into one group, one common soul.

Therefore, the Torah speaks about different interactions between different desires: one above, one below, one on the right, and one on the left, in their different forms.

Thus, it is said: “You shall not withhold.” You have to do everything so that each desire is received according to your effort.
