Hebrew translation:

17. וַתְּסִיתֵנִי בוֹ לְבַלְּעוֹ. אִם כָּךְ, לֹא בְּדִין הָיָה, אֶלָּא בְּמַאֲמַר אוֹתוֹ מְקַטְרֵג שֶׁהֵסִית אוֹתוֹ וְהִסְטָה אוֹתוֹ, אֶלָּא הַכֹּל הָיָה בְּדִין. וְכָךְ אָמַר לוֹ אֱלִיהוּא, (שם לד) כִּי פֹעַל אָדָם יְשַׁלֶּם לוֹ וּכְאֹרַח אִישׁ יַמְצִיאֶנּוּ. וְכָךְ הָיָה כְּמוֹ שֶׁנֶּאֱמַר, כְּמוֹ שֶׁהוּא גָּזַר – כָּךְ נִגְזַר עָלָיו.
18. וְזֶה שֶׁאָמַר וַתְּסִיתֵנִי בוֹ לְבַלְּעוֹ חִנָּם. וַתְּסִיתֵי לְבַלְּעוֹ לֹא כָתוּב, אֶלָּא וַתְּסִיתֵנִי בוֹ, בּוֹ עוֹמֵד בְּדַעְתּוֹ, שֶׁהוּא חָשַׁב שֶׁהֲרֵי תְּסִיתֵנִי, כְּמוֹ שֶׁאָמַר וְעַל עֲצַת רְשָׁעִים הוֹפָעְתָּ. [אָמַר אִיּוֹב, הִתְפַּתְּתִי עַל דִּבְרֵי אוֹתוֹ מְקַטְרֵג] כְּמוֹ זֶה (תהלים עח) וַיְפַתּוּהוּ בְּפִיהֶם וּבִלְשׁוֹנָם יְכַזְּבוּ לוֹ. וַיְפַתּוּהוּ וַיְכַזְּבוּ לוֹ לֹא כָתוּב, אֶלָּא וַיְפַתּוּהוּ בְּפִיהֶם. בְּפִיהֶם עוֹמֵד הַדָּבָר הַזֶּה, שֶׁהֲרֵי הִתְפַּתָּה.
19. אָמַר רַבִּי אַבָּא, הַכֹּל הוּא יָפֶה, אֲבָל כָּךְ לָמַדְנוּ, שֶׁשָּׁנִינוּ, עוֹלֶה וּמַסְטִין. וְכִי הוּא יָכוֹל לְהַסְטִין? כֵּן, שֶׁהֲרֵי הוּא מֶלֶךְ זָקֵן וּכְסִיל, שֶׁכָּתוּב (קהלת ד) טוֹב יֶלֶד מִסְכֵּן וְחָכָם מִמֶּלֶךְ זָקֵן וּכְסִיל. וְעַל זֶה יָכוֹל לְהַסְטִין לָאָדם. מָה הַטַּעַם? מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהוּא נֶאֱמָן עַל מַעֲשֵׂי בְּנֵי אָדָם.


Zohar Bo

Job was one of Pharaoh’s advisers. When Pharaoh asked his advisers what to do with the Israelites Job advised Pharaoh to not kill them but to take their properties and control their bodies with hard labor.

Job 2:3
“וַתְּסִיתֵנִי בוֹ לְבַלְּעוֹ חִנָּם”
“you incited me against him to destroy him without any reason”

The Zohar reveals that the judgment came on Job from his own words. He suffered exactly as he passed judgment on the Israelites.

Job 34:11
“כִּי פֹעַל אָדָם, יְשַׁלֶּם-לוֹ; וּכְאֹרַח אִישׁ, יַמְצִאֶנּוּ.”
“”For He pays a man according to his work, And makes him find it according to his way”

All of our negative actions are registered with the other side and they can use our words and our actions against us.

Everything we manifest at the level of Malchut is registered as a merit for us or a judgment. A spoken word is a manifestation of inner energy. Satan and his armies keep records on us and they use them against us when we are least expecting.

Negative thoughts can not harm us if we don’t express them out or follow them with actions. A positive thought is registered to our merit even if we’re unable for some honest reason to fulfill it. It is so because the positive thought connects spiritually to where the Satan doesn’t have control. Negative thoughts don’t affect our records because Satan and the other side can only register negative words or actions.

Every word we utter out should be evaluated and well thought of before we say it because sooner or later our words will catch up with us.

Words and actions should come to existence in Malchut only if they are adding value to others, otherwise we should stay silent.
