Could You Elaborate On This Further?


וְרָאִיתָ, בַּשִּׁבְיָה, אֵשֶׁת, יְפַת-תֹּאַר; וְחָשַׁקְתָּ בָהּ, וְלָקַחְתָּ לְךָ לְאִשָּׁה

And you will see among the prisoners a beautiful woman and you desire her, and you take her as a wife. (Devarim 21:11)

Degel Machaneh Ephraim, Parshas Ki Seitzei:

This is also a promise. When Hashem gives the yetzer hara into your hands, then “you will see” how the Shechinah, which is “a beautiful woman,” is in captivity so to speak.

“And you desire her,” to redeem her from captivity, “and you take her as a wife.”

See the Ohr Hachayim on the posuk and it will make more sense.

I don't understand the problem here. If you see Tomer Devorah chapter 9 everything should become clear (he explains the correlation between one's relationship with his wife and his relationship with the Shechinah.)
