+ 313 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing - has gained the rewards of going. One who does study but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 283 He would also say: If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when? Pirkei Avot 1:14


+ 327 Rabbi Elazar would say: Be diligent in the study of Torah. Know what to answer a heretic. And know before whom you toil, and who is your employer who will repay you the reward of your labors. Pirkei Avot 2:14


+ 279 Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: "For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we give to You" (I Chronicles 29:14). Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, "How beautiful is this tree!", "How beautiful is this ploughed field!"---the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:7


+ 339 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 271 Rabbi Nehora'i would say: Exile yourself to a place of Torah; do not say that it will come after you, that your colleagues will help you retain it. Rely not on your own understanding. Pirkei Avot 4:14


+ 262 Ten miracles were performed for our forefathers in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. Ten afflictions were wrought by G-d upon the Egyptians in Egypt, and another ten at the sea. With ten tests our forefathers tested G-d in the desert, as is stated (Numbers 14:22), "They tested Me these ten times, and did not hearken to My voice." Pirkei Avot 5:4


+ 263 There are four types among those who attend the study hall. One who goes but does nothing--has gained the rewards of going. One who does [study] but does not go to the study hall - has gained the rewards of doing. One who goes and does, is a chassid. One who neither goes nor does, is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:14


+ 341 The sages expounded in the language of the Mishnah (blessed is He who chose them and their learning): Rabbi Meir would say: Whoever studies Torah for Torah's sake alone, merits many things; not only that, but [the creation of] the entire world is worthwhile for him alone. He is called friend, beloved, lover of God, lover of humanity, rejoicer of God, rejoicer of humanity. The Torah enclothes him with humility and awe; makes him fit to be righteous, pious, correct and faithful; distances him from sin and brings him close to merit. From him, people enjoy counsel and wisdom, understanding and power, as is stated (Proverbs 8:14): "Mine are counsel and wisdom, I am understanding, mine is power." The Torah grants him sovereignty, dominion, and jurisprudence. The Torah's secrets are revealed to him, and he becomes as an ever-increasing wellspring and as an unceasing river. He becomes modest, patient and forgiving of insults. The Torah uplifts him and makes him greater than all creations. Pirkei Avot 6:1


+ 306 One who learns from his fellow a single chapter, or a single law, or a single verse, or a single word, or even a single letter, he must treat him with respect. For so we find with David, king of Israel, who did not learn anything from Achitofel except for two things alone, yet he called him his "master," his "guide" and his "intimate," as is stated (Psalms 55:14), "And you are a man of my worth, my guide and intimate friend." Surely we can infer a fortiori: if David, king of Israel, who learned nothing from Achitofel except for two things alone, nevertheless referred to him as his master, guide and intimate, it certainly goes without saying that one who learns from his fellow a single chapter, a law, a verse, a saying, or even a single letter, is obligated to revere him. And there is no reverence but Torah, as is stated (Proverbs 3:35; 28:10), "The sages shall inherit honor" "and the integral shall inherit good"; and there is no good but Torah, as is stated (ibid. 4:2), "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it." Pirkei Avot 6:3


+ 332 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10

+ 206 Some people think they are doing right, but in the end it leads to death. Mishlei 14:12


+ 200 Someone who is laughing may be sad inside, and joy may end in sadness. Mishlei 14:13


+ 228 Evil people will be paid back for their evil ways, and good people will be rewarded for their good ones. Mishlei 14:14


+ 219 Fools will believe anything, but the wise think about what they do. Mishlei 14:15

+ 244 Fools are rewarded with nothing but more foolishness, but the wise are rewarded with knowledge. Mishlei 14:18

+ 196 It is a sin to hate your neighbor, but being kind to the needy brings happiness. Mishlei 14:21


+ 251 Those who make evil plans will be ruined, but those who plan to do good will be loved and trusted. Mishlei 14:22


+ 232 Those who work hard make a profit, but those who only talk will be poor. Mishlei 14:23


+ 217 Wise people are rewarded with wealth, but fools only get more foolishness. Mishlei 14:24

+ 248 A king is honored when he has many people to rule, but a prince is ruined if he has none. Mishlei 14:28

+ 290 The last day i was home i took the rental car up old 14 behind the Sandia Mountains. as i drove north toward Santa Fe past Madrid I rolled the window down halfway and let the cold, brisk, February air come into the car. I smelled the pinon trees and the damp earth. The Gray came over me. My life flashed through my heart in one deep rush of feeling. When I made the turn around the mountain to the west, the mesas and valleys spread out before me under the orange and gold horizon. The sun hit me like a wave that flooded out the past and dissolved any idea of the future, and I felt okay and whole for about twenty minutes.

+ 261 I saw all the deeds that were done under the sun, and behold, everything is vanity and frustration. Kohelet 1:14


+ 208 The wise man has eyes in its beginning, but the fool goes in the darkness, and I too know that one event happens to them all. Kohelet 2:14

+ 200 For out of the prison he has come to reign, for even in his kingdom, he becomes humble. Kohelet 4:14

+ 252 On a day of good, be among the good, and on a day of adversity, ponder; God has made one corresponding to the other, to the end that man will find nothing after Him. Kohelet 7:14

+ 267 I have read true piety defined as: loving one’s destiny unconditionally – and there is something in it. That is to say: I think that in a way this sort of “religiousness” is the condition for real happiness. Karen Blixen, Letters from Africa, 1914-1931


+ 277 At present, many of the ablest minds are trying to devise expedients for preventing a repetition of the awful conflict which is only theoretically ended and the duration and main issues of which I have correctly predicted in an article printed in the Sun of December 20, 1914. The proposed League is not a remedy but, on the contrary, in the opinion of a number of competent men, may bring about results just the opposite. It is particularly regrettable that a punitive policy was adopted in framing the terms of peace, because a few years hence, it will be possible for nations to fight without armies, ships or guns, by weapons far more terrible, to the destructive action and range of which there is virtually no limit. Any city, at a distance, whatsoever, from the enemy, can be destroyed by him and no power on earth can stop him from doing so. Nikola Tesla

+ 190 Now the valley of Siddim was composed of many clay pits, and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled and they fell there, and the survivors fled to a mountain. Bereshit 14:10


+ 160 And they took all the possessions of Sodom and Gomorrah and all their food, and they departed. Bereshit 14:11


+ 162 And they took Lot and his possessions, the son of Abram's brother, and they departed, and he was living in Sodom. Bereshit 14:12


+ 154 And the fugitive came and he told Abram the Hebrew, and he was living in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, the brother of Eshkol and the brother of Aner, who were Abram's confederates. Bereshit 14:13


+ 214 And Abram heard that his kinsman had been taken captive, and he armed his trained men, those born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and he pursued them until Dan. Bereshit 14:14


+ 178 And he divided himself against them at night, he and his servants, and smote them, and pursued them until Hobah, which is to the left of Damascus. Bereshit 14:15


+ 160 And he restored all the possessions, and also Lot his brother and his possessions he restored, and also the women and the people. Bereshit 14:16


+ 248 And the king of Sodom came out toward him, after his return from smiting Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him, to the valley of Shaveh, which is the valley of the king. Bereshit 14:17


+ 172 And Malchizedek the king of Salem brought out bread and wine, and he was a priest to the Most High God. Bereshit 14:18


+ 143 And he blessed him, and he said, Blessed be Abram to the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:19


+ 150 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your adversaries into your hand, and he gave him a tithe from all. Bereshit 14:20


+ 162 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the souls, and the possessions take for yourself. Bereshit 14:21


+ 161 And Abram said to the king of Sodom, I raise my hand to the Lord, the Most High God, Who possesses heaven and earth. Bereshit 14:22


+ 152 Neither from a thread to a shoe strap, nor will I take from whatever is yours, that you should not say, I have made Abram wealthy. Bereshit 14:23


+ 181 Exclusive of what the lads ate, and the share of the men who went with me; Aner, Eshkol, and Mamre they shall take their share. Bereshit 14:24


+ 132 And also the nation that they will serve will I judge, and afterwards they will go forth with great possessions. Bereshit 15:14


+ 161 Therefore the well was called Be'er Lachai Ro'i; behold it is between Kadesh and between Bered. Bereshit 16:14


+ 184 And an uncircumcised male, who will not circumcise the flesh of his foreskin-that soul will be cut off from its people; he has broken My covenant. Bereshit 17:14


+ 169 Is anything hidden from the Lord? At the appointed time, I will return to you, at this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Bereshit 18:14


+ 177 So Lot went forth and spoke to his sons-in-law, the suitors of his daughters, and he said, Arise, go forth from this place, for the Lord is destroying the city, but he seemed like a comedian in the eyes of his sons-in-law. Bereshit 19:14

+ 164 And Abraham named that place, The Lord will see, as it is said to this day: On the mountain, the Lord will be seen. Bereshit 22:14


+ 145 And Ephron replied to Abraham, saying to him, Bereshit 23:14


+ 179 And it will be, that the maiden to whom I will say, Lower your pitcher and I will drink, and she will say, Drink, and I will also water your camels, her have You designated for Your servant, for Isaac, and through her may I know that You have performed loving kindness with my master. Bereshit 24:14


+ 134 And Mishma and Dumah and Massa, Bereshit 25:14


+ 160 And he had possessions of sheep and possessions of cattle and much production, and the Philistines envied him. Bereshit 26:14


+ 150 So he went, and he took, and he brought them to his mother, and his mother made tasty foods, as his father liked. Bereshit 27:14


+ 171 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall gain strength westward and eastward and northward and southward; and through you shall be blessed all the families of the earth and through your seed. Bereshit 28:14


+ 160 And Laban said to him, Indeed, you are my bone and my flesh. And so he stayed with him a full month. Bereshit 29:14


+ 179 Reuben went in the days of the wheat harvest, and he found dudaim in the field and brought them to Leah, his mother, and Rachel said to Leah, Now give me some of your son's dudaim. Bereshit 30:14


+ 151 And Rachel and Leah replied and said to him, Do we still have a share or an inheritance in our father's house? Bereshit 31:14


+ 146 So he lodged there on that night, and he took from what came into his hand a gift for his brother Esau: Bereshit 32:14


+ 152 Now, let my master go ahead before his servant, and I will move at my own slow pace, according to the pace of the work that is before me and according to the pace of the children, until I come to my master, to Seir. Bereshit 33:14


+ 148 And they said to them, We cannot do this thing, to give our sister to a man who has a foreskin, for that is a disgrace to us. Bereshit 34:14


+ 160 Now Jacob had erected a monument in the place where He had spoken with him, a stone monument, and he poured a libation upon it, and then he poured oil upon it. Bereshit 35:14


+ 144 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, daughter of Zibeon, the wife of Esau; she bore to Esau: Jeush, Jaalam, and Korah. Bereshit 36:14


+ 149 So he said to him, Go now and see to your brothers' welfare and the welfare of the flocks, and bring me back word. So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem. Bereshit 37:14


+ 180 So she took off her widow's garb, covered her head with a veil and covered her face, and she sat down at the crossroads that were on the way to Timnah, for she saw that Shelah had grown up, but as for her she was not given to him for a wife. Bereshit 38:14


+ 121 That she called to the people of her house, and she spoke to them, saying, Look! He brought us a Hebrew man to mock us. He came to me to lie with me, but I called loudly. Bereshit 39:14


+ 139 But remember me when things go well with you, and please do me a favor and mention me to Pharaoh, and you will get me out of this house. Bereshit 40:14

+ 146 And he fell on his brother Benjamin's neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. Bereshit 45:14


+ 114 And the sons of Zebulun were Sered, Elon, and Jahleel. Bereshit 46:14


+ 125 And Joseph collected all the money that was found in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan with the grain that they were buying, and Joseph brought the money into Pharaoh's house. Bereshit 47:14


+ 162 But Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim's head, although he was the younger, and his left hand he placed on Manasseh's head. He guided his hands deliberately, for Manasseh was the firstborn. Bereshit 48:14


+ 113 Issachar is a bony donkey, lying between the boundaries. Bereshit 49:14


+ 124 And Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brothers, and all who had gone up with him to bury his father, after he had buried his father. Bereshit 50:14


+ 181 And they embittered their lives with hard labor, with clay and with bricks and with all kinds of labor in the fields, all their work that they worked with them with back breaking labor. Shemot 1:14


+ 160 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 140 God said to Moses, Ehyeh asher ehyeh I will be what I will be, and He said, So shall you say to the children of Israel, Ehyeh has sent me to you. Shemot 3:14


+ 149 And the Lord's wrath was kindled against Moses, and He said, Is there not Aaron your brother, the Levite? I know that he will surely speak, and behold, he is coming forth toward you, and when he sees you, he will rejoice in his heart. Shemot 4:14


+ 156 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 141 These following are the heads of the fathers' houses: The sons of Reuben, Israel's firstborn: Enoch, Pallu, Hezron, and Karmi, these are the families of Reuben. Shemot 6:14


+ 123 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh's heart is heavy; he has refused to let the people out. Shemot 7:14


+ 116 And the necromancers did likewise with their secret rites to bring out the lice, but they could not, and the lice were upon man and beast. Shemot 8:14


+ 149 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 151 The locusts ascended over the entire land of Egypt, and they alighted within all the borders of Egypt, very severe; before them, there was never such a locust plague, and after it, there will never be one like it. Shemot 10:14


+ 100 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 123 And it will come to pass if your son asks you in the future, saying, What is this? you shall say to him, With a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 13:14


+ 98 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 14:1


+ 126 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 130 And Pharaoh will say about the children of Israel, They are trapped in the land. The desert has closed in upon them. Shemot 14:3


+ 119 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and he will pursue them, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh and through his entire force, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord And they did so. Shemot 14:4


+ 145 It was reported to Pharaoh that the people had fled; and Pharaoh and his servants had a change of heart toward the people, and they said, What is this that we have done, that we have released Israel from serving us? Shemot 14:5


+ 106 So he harnessed his chariot, and took his people with him. Shemot 14:6


+ 113 He took six hundred select chariots and all the chariots of Egypt, with officers over them all. Shemot 14:7


+ 133 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, and he chased after the children of Israel, and the children of Israel were marching out triumphantly. Shemot 14:8


+ 135 The Egyptians chased after them and overtook them encamped by the sea every horse of Pharaoh's chariots, his horsemen, and his force beside Pi hahiroth, in front of Ba'al Zephon. Shemot 14:9


+ 157 Pharaoh drew near, and the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and behold! the Egyptians were advancing after them. They were very frightened, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Shemot 14:10


+ 149 They said to Moses, Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this that you have done to us to take us out of Egypt? Shemot 14:11


+ 106 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 143 Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid! Stand firm and see the Lord's salvation that He will wreak for you today, for the way you have seen the Egyptians is only today, but you shall no longer continue to see them for eternity. Shemot 14:13


+ 111 The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent. Shemot 14:14


+ 124 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 112 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 105 And I, behold! I shall harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will come after you, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh, and through all his force, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:17


+ 114 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I will be glorified through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:18


+ 124 Then the angel of God, who had been going in front of the Israelite camp, moved and went behind them, and the pillar of cloud moved away from in front of them and stood behind them. Shemot 14:19


+ 129 And he came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel, and there were the cloud and the darkness, and it illuminated the night, and one did not draw near the other all night long. Shemot 14:20


+ 121 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord led the sea with the strong east wind all night, and He made the sea into dry land and the waters split. Shemot 14:21


+ 106 Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:22


+ 117 The Egyptians pursued and came after them all Pharaoh s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen, into the midst of the sea. Shemot 14:23


+ 128 It came about in the morning watch that the Lord looked down over the Egyptian camp through a pillar of fire and cloud, and He threw the Egyptian camp into confusion. Shemot 14:24


+ 137 And He removed the wheels of their chariots, and He led them with heaviness, and the Egyptians said, Let me run away from the Israelites because the Lord is fighting for them against the Egyptians. Shemot 14:25


+ 117 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 138 So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and toward morning the sea returned to its strength, as the Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord stirred the Egyptians into the sea. Shemot 14:27


+ 130 And the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen, the entire force of Pharaoh coming after them into the sea; not even one of them survived. Shemot 14:28


+ 109 But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea, and the water was to them like a wall from their right and from their left. Shemot 14:29


+ 132 On that day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians dying on the seashore. Shemot 14:30


+ 128 And Israel saw the great hand, which the Lord had used upon the Egyptians, and the people feared the Lord, and they believed in the Lord and in Moses, His servant. Shemot 14:31


+ 118 Peoples heard, they trembled; a shudder seized the inhabitants of Philistia. Shemot 15:14


+ 116 The layer of dew went up, and behold, on the surface of the desert, a fine, bare substance as fine as frost on the ground. Shemot 16:14


+ 141 The Lord said to Moses, Inscribe this as a memorial in the book, and recite it into Joshua's ears, that I will surely obliterate the remembrance of Amalek from beneath the heavens. Shemot 17:14


+ 120 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 120 So Moses descended from the mountain to the people, and he prepared the people, and they washed their garments. Shemot 19:14


+ 131 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 113 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 106 If its owner is with him, he shall not pay; if it is a hired animal, it has come for its hire. Shemot 22:14


+ 105 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 107 And to the elders he said, Wait for us here until we return to you, and here Aaron and Hur are with you; whoever has a case, let him go to them. Shemot 24:14


+ 104 And you shall bring the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to carry the ark with them. Shemot 25:14


+ 102 And you shall make a covering for the tent of ram skins dyed red and a covering of tachash skins above. Shemot 26:14


+ 133 The hangings on the shoulder shall be fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 27:14


+ 128 And two chains of pure gold you will make them attached to the edges, after the manner of cables, and you will place the cable chains upon the settings. Shemot 28:14


+ 110 But the flesh of the bull, its hide and its dung you shall burn in fire outside the camp; it is a sin offering. Shemot 29:14


+ 114 Everyone who goes through the counting, from the age of twenty and upward, shall give an offering to the Lord. Shemot 30:14


+ 93 Therefore, keep the Sabbath, for it is a sacred thing for you. Those who desecrate it shall be put to death, for whoever performs work on it, that soul will be cut off from the midst of its people. Shemot 31:14


+ 82 The Lord then reconsidered the evil He had said He would do to His people. Shemot 32:14


+ 72 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 92 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 85 And the menorah for lighting and its implements and its lamps, and the oil for lighting; Shemot 35:14


+ 72 And then he made curtains of goat hair for a tent over the Mishkan; he made them eleven curtains. Shemot 36:14


+ 78 The rings were opposite the frame as holders for the poles with which to carry the table. Shemot 37:14


+ 82 The hangings on the shoulder were fifteen cubits, their pillars three and their sockets three. Shemot 38:14


+ 108 And the stones were for the names of the sons of Israel twelve, corresponding to their names; similar to the engravings of a seal, every one according to his name, for the twelve tribes. Shemot 39:14


+ 81 And you shall bring his sons near and clothe them with tunics. Shemot 40:14


+ 105 And if his sacrifice to the Lord, is a burnt offering from birds, he shall bring it from turtle doves or from young doves. Vayikra 1:14


+ 139 When you bring a meal offering of the first grains to the Lord, you shall bring your first grain meal offering from barley, as soon as it ripens, parched over the fire, kernels full in their husks, ground into coarse meal. Vayikra 2:14


+ 114 And from it, he shall bring his offering a fire offering to the Lord comprised of the fat covering the innards, and all the fat which is on the innards, Vayikra 3:14


+ 106 When the sin which they had committed becomes known, the congregation shall bring a young bull as a sin offering. They shall bring it before the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:14


+ 94 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 5:14


+ 118 It shall be made with oil on a shallow pan, after bringing it scalded and repeatedly baked; you shall offer a meal offering of broken pieces, with a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Vayikra 6:14


+ 181 And he shall bring from it one out of each offering, as a separation for the Lord; the kohen who dashes the blood of the peace offering it shall be his. Vayikra 7:14


+ 111 And he brought the sin offering bull close, and Aaron and his sons leaned their hands forcefully upon the head of the sin offering bull. Vayikra 8:14


+ 90 And he washed the innards and the legs, and he caused them to go up in smoke on the altar, along with the burnt offering. Vayikra 9:14


+ 122 The breast of the waving and the thigh of the raising up you shall eat in a clean place, you and your sons and your daughters with you, for as your portion and your sons' portion they have been given, from the peace offerings of the children of Israel. Vayikra 10:14


+ 76 The kestrel, and the vulture after its species, Vayikra 11:14


+ 84 But on the day that live flesh appears in it, he shall become unclean. Vayikra 13:14


+ 85 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 14:1


+ 95 This shall be the law of the person afflicted with tzara'ath, on the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the kohen. Vayikra 14:2


+ 92 The kohen shall go outside the camp, and the kohen shall look, and behold, the lesion of tzara'ath has healed in the afflicted person. Vayikra 14:3


+ 96 Then the kohen shall order, and the person to be cleansed shall take two live, clean birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:4


+ 99 The kohen shall order, and one shall slaughter the one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:5


+ 111 As for the live bird, he shall take it, and then the cedar stick, the strip of crimson wool, and the hyssop, and, along with the live bird, he shall dip them into the blood of the slaughtered bird, over the spring water. Vayikra 14:6


+ 103 He shall then sprinkle seven times upon the person being cleansed from tzara'ath, and he shall cleanse him. He shall then send away the live bird into the open field. Vayikra 14:7


+ 107 The person being cleansed shall then immerse his garments, shave off all his hair, and immerse himself in water, and become clean. After this, he may enter the camp, but he shall remain outside his tent for seven days. Vayikra 14:8


+ 99 And it shall be, on the seventh day, that he shall shave off all his hair: that of his head, his beard, his eyebrows; indeed, all his hair, he shall shave off. He shall then immerse his garments and immerse his flesh in water, thus becoming clean. Vayikra 14:9


+ 96 And on the eighth day, he shall take two unblemished male lambs, one unblemished ewe lamb in its first year, three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with olive oil as a meal offering, and one log of olive oil. Vayikra 14:10


+ 106 And the kohen who is performing the cleansing shall place the person being cleansed together with these things, before the Lord, at the entrance of the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 14:11


+ 94 And the kohen shall take one male lamb and bring it as a guilt offering, along with the log of oil, and wave them as a waving before the Lord. Vayikra 14:12


+ 97 He shall slaughter the lamb in the place where one slaughters the sin offering and the burnt offering, in a holy place. For regarding the kohen['s service], the guilt offering is like the sin offering. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 14:13


+ 110 The kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering, and the kohen shall place it above the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:14


+ 91 And the kohen shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it onto the kohen's left palm. Vayikra 14:15


+ 93 The kohen shall then dip his right index finger into some of the oil that is on his left palm, and sprinkle some of the oil with his index finger seven times, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:16


+ 108 And some of the remainder of the oil that is in his palm, the kohen shall place on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on top of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:17


+ 81 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, and the kohen shall effect atonement for him before the Lord. Vayikra 14:18


+ 95 The kohen shall then perform the service of the sin offering and effect atonement for the person being cleansed of his uncleanness. After this, he shall slaughter the burnt offering. Vayikra 14:19


+ 82 And the kohen shall bring up the burnt offering and the meal offering to the altar. The kohen shall thus effect atonement for him, and he shall be completely clean. Vayikra 14:20


+ 101 But if he is poor and cannot afford these sacrifices, he shall take one male lamb as a guilt offering for a waving to effect atonement for him, and one tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil as a meal offering, and a log of oil. Vayikra 14:21


+ 79 And two turtle doves or two young doves, according to what he can afford; one shall be a sin offering, and one a burnt offering. Vayikra 14:22


+ 92 And he shall bring them on the eighth day of his cleansing, to the kohen, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:23


+ 79 And the kohen shall take the guilt offering lamb and the log of oil, and the kohen shall wave them as a waving, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:24


+ 116 And he shall slaughter the guilt offering lamb, and the kohen shall take some of the blood of the guilt offering's and place it on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand, and on the big toe of his right foot. Vayikra 14:25


+ 77 And the kohen shall then pour some of the oil into the left palm of the kohen. Vayikra 14:26


+ 114 And the kohen shall sprinkle with his right index finger some of the oil that is in his left palm, seven times before the Lord. Vayikra 14:27


+ 102 And the kohen shall place some of the oil that is in his palm, on the cartilage of the right ear of the person being cleansed, on the thumb of his right hand and on the big toe of his right foot, on the place of the blood of the guilt offering. Vayikra 14:28


+ 91 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, to effect atonement for him, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:29


+ 97 He shall then perform the service of one of the turtle doves or of the young doves, from whatever he can afford, Vayikra 14:30


+ 114 From what he can afford, one as a sin offering, and one as a burnt offering, besides the meal offering, and the kohen shall effect atonement for the person being cleansed, before the Lord. Vayikra 14:31


+ 105 This is the law of one in whom there is a lesion of tzara'ath, who cannot afford the full array of sacrifices, when he is to be cleansed. Vayikra 14:32


+ 83 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 14:33


+ 95 When you come to the land of Canaan, which I am giving you as a possession, and I place a lesion of tzara'ath upon a house in the land of your possession, Vayikra 14:34


+ 116 and the one to whom the house belongs comes and tells the kohen, saying, Something like a lesion has appeared to me in the house, Vayikra 14:35


+ 94 The kohen shall order that they clear out the house, before the kohen comes to look at the lesion, so that everything in the house should not become unclean. After this, the kohen shall come to look at the house. Vayikra 14:36


+ 107 And he shall look at the lesion. Now, if the lesion in the walls of the house consists of dark green or dark red sunken looking stains, appearing as if deeper than the wall, Vayikra 14:37


+ 88 Then the kohen shall go out of the house to the entrance of the house, and he shall quarantine the house for seven days. Vayikra 14:38


+ 80 Then the kohen shall return on the seventh day and look at the house. Now, if the lesion has spread in the walls of the house, Vayikra 14:39


+ 101 The kohen shall order that they remove the stones upon which the lesion is found, and they shall cast them away outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:40


+ 93 And he shall scrape out the house from the inside, all around, and they shall pour out the mortar dust from what they scraped, outside the city, into an unclean place. Vayikra 14:41


+ 92 And they shall take other stones and bring them instead of those stones. And he shall take other mortar dust, and plaster the house. Vayikra 14:42


+ 108 And if the lesion returns and erupts in the house, after he had removed the stones, and after the house had been scraped around and after it had been plastered, Vayikra 14:43


+ 94 Then the kohen shall come and look at it. Now, if the lesion in the house has spread, it is malignant tzara'ath in the house; it is unclean. Vayikra 14:44


+ 97 He shall demolish the house, its stones, its wood, and all the mortar dust of the house, and he shall take them outside the city, to an unclean place. Vayikra 14:45


+ 84 And anyone entering the house during all the days of its quarantine shall become unclean until the evening. Vayikra 14:46


+ 102 And whoever lies down in the house, shall immerse his garments, and whoever eats in the house, shall immerse his garments. Vayikra 14:47


+ 119 But if the kohen comes and comes again and looks at the lesion, and behold, the lesion did not spread in the house, after the house has been plastered, the kohen shall pronounce the house clean, because the lesion has healed. Vayikra 14:48


+ 112 To ritually cleanse the house, he shall take two birds, a cedar stick, a strip of crimson wool, and hyssop. Vayikra 14:49


+ 94 He shall slaughter one bird into an earthenware vessel, over spring water. Vayikra 14:50


+ 118 And he shall take the cedar stick, the hyssop, the strip of crimson wool, and the live bird, and he shall dip them into the blood of slaughtered bird and into the spring water and sprinkle towards the house seven times. Vayikra 14:51


+ 112 And he shall thus cleanse the house with the blood of the bird, the spring water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the strip of crimson wool. Vayikra 14:52


+ 125 He shall then send away the live bird outside the city, onto the open field. He shall thus effect atonement for the house, and it will be clean. Vayikra 14:53


+ 76 All this is the law for every lesion of tzara'ath, and for a nethek, Vayikra 14:54


+ 87 And for tzara'ath of garments and houses, Vayikra 14:55


+ 73 And for a se'eith and for a sapachath and for a bahereth; Vayikra 14:56


+ 90 To render decisions regarding the day of uncleanness and the day of cleanness. This is the law of tzara'ath. Vayikra 14:57


+ 88 And on the eighth day, he shall take for himself two turtle doves or two young doves, and come before the Lord, to the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and give them to the kohen. Vayikra 15:14


+ 111 And he shall take some of the bull's blood and sprinkle it with his index finger on top of the ark cover on the eastern side; and before the ark cover, he shall sprinkle seven times from the blood, with his index finger. Vayikra 16:14


+ 99 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14

+ 76 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 73 And if a man consecrates his house to be holy to the Lord, the kohen shall evaluate it whether good or bad; as the kohen evaluates it, so shall it remain. Vayikra 27:14

+ 65 The Lord spoke to Moses in the Sinai desert, saying: Bamidbar 3:14

+ 90 All the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the entire congregation said, "If only we had died in the land of Egypt, or if only we had died in this desert. Bamidbar 14:2


+ 105 Why does the Lord bring us to this land to fall by the sword; our wives and children will be as spoils. Is it not better for us to return to Egypt? Bamidbar 14:3


+ 65 They said to each other, Let us appoint a leader and return to Egypt! Bamidbar 14:4


+ 73 Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before the entire congregation of the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:5


+ 76 Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had scouted the land, tore their clothes. Bamidbar 14:6


+ 80 They spoke to the entire congregation of the children of Israel, saying, The land we passed through to scout is an exceedingly good land. Bamidbar 14:7


+ 76 If the Lord desires us, He will bring us to this land and give it to us, a land flowing with milk and honey. Bamidbar 14:8


+ 69 But you shall not rebel against the Lord, and you will not fear the people of that land for they are as our bread. Their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them. Bamidbar 14:9


+ 75 The entire congregation threatened to pelt them with stones, but the glory of the Lord appeared in the Tent of Meeting to all the children of Israel. Bamidbar 14:10


+ 71 The Lord said to Moses, How long will this people provoke Me? How much longer will they not believe in Me after all the signs I have performed in their midst? Bamidbar 14:11


+ 70 I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them; then I will make you into a nation, greater and stronger than they. Bamidbar 14:12

+ 92 They will say about the inhabitants of this land, who have heard that You, O Lord, are in the midst of this people; that You, the Lord, appear to them eye to eye and that Your cloud rests over them. And You go before them with a pillar of cloud by day and with a pillar of fire by night, Bamidbar 14:14


+ 65 And if You kill this nation like one man, the nations who have heard of Your reputation will say as follows: Bamidbar 14:15


+ 54 Since the Lord lacked the ability to bring this nation to the Land which He swore to them, He slaughtered them in the desert. Bamibdar 14:16


+ 77 Now, please, let the strength of the Lord be increased, as You spoke, saying. Bamidbar 14:17

+ 88 Please forgive the iniquity of this nation in accordance with your abounding kindness, as You have borne this people from Egypt until now." Bamidbar 14:19


+ 80 And the Lord said, I have forgiven them in accordance with your word. Bamidbar 14:21

+ 65 The men who spread an evil report about the Land died in the plague, before the Lord. Bamidbar 14:37


+ 78 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive of the men who went to tour the Land. Bamidbar 14:38


+ 85 Moses related all these words to the children of Israel, and the people mourned greatly. Bamidbar 14:39


+ 81 They arose early in the morning and ascended to the mountain top, saying, We are ready to go up to the place of which the Lord spoke, for we have sinned. Bamidbar 14:40


+ 84 Moses said, Why do you transgress the word of the Lord? It will not succeed. Bamidbar 14:41


+ 69 Do not go up, for the Lord is not among you, so that you will not be beaten by your enemies. Bamidbar 14:42


+ 79 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you will fall by the sword. For you have turned away from the Lord, and the Lord will not be with you. Bamidbar 14:43


+ 73 They defiantly ascended to the mountain top, but the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord and Moses did not move from the camp. Bamidbar 14:44


+ 77 The Amalekites and the Canaanites who lived on the mountain came down and smote them and crushed them until Hormah. Bamidbar 14:45


+ 72 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 72 The number of dead in the plague was fourteen thousand, seven hundred, besides those who died because of the matter of Korah. Bamidbar 17:14

+ 65 Moab's nobles arose and came to Balak and said, Balaam refuses to come with us. Bamidbar 22:14


+ 71 He took him to the field of the lookouts, to the peak of the mountain, and he built seven altars and offered up a bull and a ram on each altar. Bamidbar 23:14


+ 55 And now, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you...what this people will do to your people at the end of days. Bamidbar 24:14


+ 89 The name of the Israelite man who was killed, who was slain with the Midianite woman was Zimri the son of Salu, the chieftain of the Simeonite paternal house. Bamidbar 25:14


+ 49 These were the families of the Simeonites twenty two thousand and two hundred. Bamidbar 26:14


+ 75 Because you disobeyed My command in the desert of Zin when the congregation quarreled, when you were to sanctify Me through the water before their eyes; these were the waters of dispute at Kadesh, in the desert of Zin. Bamidbar 27:14


+ 65 And their libations: a half of a hin for each bull, a third of a hin for each ram, and a quarter of a hin for each lamb wine; this is the burnt offering of each new month in its month, throughout the months of the year. Bamidbar 28:14


+ 64 And their meal offering shall be fine flour mixed with oil; three tenths for each bull for the thirteen bulls, two tenths for each ram for the two rams. Bamidbar 29:14


+ 54 Any vow or any binding oath of self affliction, her husband can either uphold it or revoke it. Bamidbar 30:14

+ 93 Moses became angry with the officers of the army, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, who had returned from the campaign of war. Bamidbar 31:14


+ 81 And behold, you have now risen in place of your fathers as a society of sinful people, to add to the wrathful anger of the Lord against Israel. Bamidbar 32:14


+ 54 They journeyed from Alush and camped in Rephidim, but there there was no water for the people to drink. Bamidbar 33:14

+ 50 You shall provide the three cities in trans Jordan and the three cities in the land of Canaan; they shall be cities of refuge. Bamidbar 35:14


+ 83 And you answered me and said, The thing you have spoken is good for us to do. Devarim 1:14


+ 90 And the days when we went from Kadesh barnea, until we crossed the brook of Zered, numbered thirty eight years, until all the generation of the men of war expired from the midst of the camp, just as the Lord swore to them. Devarim 2:14


+ 80 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the territory of Argob to the boundaries of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and he called them, even Bashan, after his own name, villages of Jair, to this day. Devarim 3:14

+ 92 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your ox, your donkey, any of your livestock, nor the stranger who is within your cities, in order that your manservant and your maidservant may rest like you. Devarim 5:14


+ 70 Do not go after other gods, of the gods of the peoples who are around you. Devarim 6:14


+ 75 You shall be blessed above all peoples: There will be no sterile male or barren female among you or among your livestock. Devarim 7:14


+ 77 And your heart grows haughty, and you forget the Lord, your God, Who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, Devarim 8:14


+ 74 Leave Me alone, and I will destroy them and obliterate their name from beneath the heavens, and I will make you into a nation mightier and more numerous than they." Devarim 9:14


+ 65 Behold, to the Lord, your God, belong the heavens and the heavens of the heavens, the earth, and all that is on it. Devarim 10:14


+ 66 I will give the rain of your land at its time, the early rain and the latter rain, and you will gather in your grain, your wine, and your oil. Devarim 11:14


+ 74 But only in the place the Lord will choose in one of your tribes; there you shall offer up your burnt offerings, and there you shall do all that I command you. Devarim 12:14


+ 70 Then you shall inquire, investigate, and ask thoroughly, and, behold, it is true, the matter is certain, that such abomination has been committed in your midst: Devarim 13:14


+ 79 You are children of the Lord, your God. You shall neither cut yourselves nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead. Devarim 14:1

+ 73 And you shall turn that money into whatever your soul desires; cattle, sheep, new wine or old wine, or whatever your soul desires, and you shall eat there before the Lord, your God, and you shall rejoice, you and your household. Devarim 14:26

+ 73 At the end of three years, you shall take out all the tithe of your crop in that year and place it in your cities. Devarim 14:28


+ 72 And the Levite because he has no portion or inheritance with you and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are in your cities, will come and eat and be satisfied; so that the Lord, your God, will bless you in all the work of your hand that you will do. Devarim 14:29


+ 75 You shall surely provide him from your flock, from your threshing floor, and from your vat, you shall give him from what the Lord, your God, has blessed you Devarim 15:14


+ 72 And you shall rejoice in your Festival-you, and your son, and your daughter, and your manservant, and your maidservant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who are within your cities. Devarim 16:14


+ 81 When you come to the land the Lord, your God, is giving you, and you possess it and live therein, and you say, "I will set a king over myself, like all the nations around me," Devarim 17:14


+ 94 For these nations, which you are to possess, hearken to diviners of auspicious times and soothsayers, but as for you, the Lord, your God, has not given you things like these. Devarim 18:14


+ 108 You shall not pull back your neighbor's landmark, which the earlier ones have set as borders in your inheritance, which you will inherit in the land that the Lord, your God gives you, to possess. Devarim 19:14


+ 78 However, the women, the children, and the livestock, and all that is in the city, all its spoils you shall take for yourself, and you shall eat the spoils of your enemies, which the Lord, your God, has given you. Devarim 20:14

+ 79 I did not eat any of it second tithe while in my mourning, nor did I consume any of it while unclean; neither did I use any of it for the dead. I obeyed the Lord, my God; I did according to all that You commanded me. Devarim 26:14


+ 69 The Levites shall speak up, saying to every individual of Israel, in a loud voice: Devarim 27:14

+ 81 Torah Learning for the Creative Individual

Outstanding people who are involved in Torah and who have a talent and inner predilection for ethical and poetic studies, for high thoughts and exalted wisdom, may not suppress or nullify that great desire.

They must broaden it and make it great. They must every day engage in Torah learning that is broad and that transmits knowledge, wisdom and ability.

Such people must dedicate most of their talent to such learning. They should not worry that this dedication may force them to curtail their practical Torah learning, leading them to satisfy themselves with learning that is easy, short and straight, allowing them to simply know the halachah and its reasoning clearly, and allowing them to simply clarify everything in its time with the calm learning of breadth of knowledge in (a) halachah, (b) the basic Talmud discussions and (c) the various approaches of the sages.

This will not keep them from being sharp. True Torah sharpness is naturally born of this learning [mentioned above] of itself, and appears when it is needed.

One does not need to work hard and spend a great deal of time on pilpul. As it is, most pilpul is intended for those [who, not being poetic,] turn to it to fulfill the thirst of their soul for the breadth of Torah and powerful intellectual freedom.

A little pilpul is always good, even for those who are mostly involved in very spiritual matters; but the basic concern of these sensitive souls must be “to open the eyes of the blind; to bring the prisoner out of the jail; to take the man sitting in darkness out of his cell” (Is. 42:7).

+ 82 I have seen it written that the prohibition from Above to refrain from open study in the wisdom of truth was only for a limited period, until the end of 1490, but from then on the prohibition has been lifted and permission was granted to study the Zohar. Since 1540 it has been a great Mitzva (commandment) for the masses to study in public, old and young... and that is because the Messiah will come because of that and not because of any other reason. Therefore, we must not be negligent. Rabbi Abraham Ben Mordechai Azulai, Introduction to the book, Ohr HaChama, Light of the Sun


+ 83 A Jewish woman from Chelm went to the market one day to buy herring and a loaf of bread. "How much is it?" she asked the storekeeper. "14 cents," answered the storekeeper to the lady. "14! For what?" asked the Jewish lady. "I think it's 11." The storekeeper explained: The herring costs 7 cents, and the loaf of bread costs 7 cents also. So together it comes to 14 cents." "I know different. To the best of my recollection, 7 and 7 is 11." "What are your saying?" "As far as I know, 7 and 7 is 11...I had already had 4 children when my first husband died. When I married a second time, my second husband also had 4 children from his first wife. After getting married, we had 3 children together. So each of us had 7 children, and together we had 11! Obviously, 7 and 7 is 11."
