  • Also, I understood from Reb Moshe Shapiro that bechiyah relates to the word navuch, confused. So that people cry when they do not know how to progress with life, they are presented with confusion. Dema can also mean mixture. So that people also cry when there is a intractable mixture of good and evil, i.e. good has been subsumed into the mixture of good and evil that exists in the world, and it has not been possible to extricate and thereby save the good.
