Siach Yitzchak: Divine Providence

The 29th of Cheshvan is the Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Yitzchak Eizik Chaver author of Afikei Mayim: The Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2a) says that when the nations of the world will be summoned

on the Day of Judgment, they will gather in a huge mixed crowd before the Divine Tribunal. God wil instruct them to spearate into nations.

Does God need them to separate in order to judge them? These are the nations that denied Divine Providence and insisted that God guides the world, not nations and certainly not individuals. When God instructs them to separate and organize, He is teaching them that there is Individual Providence for each nation and each person. (Siach Yitzchak, Avodah Zarah)
