Derech Hashem – The Way of G-d 2:4:10
And even though as a rule G-d doesn’t directly govern others 1, He might still do so for our people’s sake. And that would fall under the rubric of means-to-an-end rather than ends themselves which we’d discussed earlier 2.
1 I.e., He has appointed angelic administrators over them as we saw in 2:4:8.
2 See 2:3:12 above and our note 7 there.
