Torah, Deuteronomy 28:22: The Lord will strike you with consumption, fever, illnesses with burning fevers, a disease which causes unquenchable thirst, with the sword, with blast, and with yellowing, and they will pursue you until you perish
It is written in the Torah: “I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. You shall choose life, so that you and your offspring will live;” (Deuteronomy, 30:19) This has only one meaning: you can either select one line or the other.
Question: What does it mean, “The Lord will strike you with consumption, fever, illnesses with burning fevers…,” and so on?
Answer: The problems will be at all the levels of the soul: human, animate, vegetative, and inanimate. This really is so because every disparity to the Creator, no matter if it is small or large, includes all four levels. The blow passes through all of them from the top to the bottom. You cannot feel the problem in one thing only because everything is affected.
This also happens in life. Perhaps a person doesn’t particularly feel it, but in fact, the blow passes through all the levels.
