the prosecution rests

Sometimes, when the world is undeserving and even the Tzaddikim can't sweeten the harsh judgements, HaShem tells the Prosecution aka Satan, "Ok, you're right, I'm going to destroy the heavens and the earth."

At which point the Prosecution realizes it will be destroyed as well, and momentously the Prosecution switches gears and comes to the defense of the world, beseeching HaShem to have mercy on His creation.

[a welcome secret, brought down by the Noam Elimelech in his Likkutei Shoshanah.]
