9.27. 2. Accordingly the king in a very little time died, as Elijah had foretold; but Jehoram his brother succeeded him in the kingdom, for he died without children: but for this Jehoram, he was like his father Ahab in wickedness, and reigned twelve years, indulging himself in all sorts of wickedness and impiety towards God, for, leaving off his worship, he worshipped foreign gods; but in other respects he was an active man. 9.29. 1. When Joram had taken upon him the kingdom, he determined to make an expedition against the king of Moab, whose name was Mesha; for, as we told you before, he was departed from his obedience to his brother [Ahaziah], while he paid to his father Ahab two hundred thousand sheep, with their fleeces of wool. 9.30. When therefore he had gathered his own army together, he sent also to Jehoshaphat, and entreated him, that since he had from the beginning been a friend to his father, he would assist him in the war that he was entering into against the Moabites, who had departed from their obedience, who not only himself promised to assist him, but would also oblige the king of Edom, who was under his authority, to make the same expedition also. 9.31. When Joram had received these assurances of assistance from Jehoshaphat, he took his army with him, and came to Jerusalem; and when he had been sumptuously entertained by the king of Jerusalem, it was resolved upon by them to take their march against their enemies through the wilderness of Edom. 9.32. And when they had taken a compass of seven days’ journey, they were in distress for want of water for the cattle, and for the army, from the mistake of their roads by the guides that conducted them, insomuch that they were all in an agony, especially Joram; and cried to God, by reason of their sorrow, and [desired to know] what wickedness had been committed by them that induced him to deliver three kings together, without fighting, unto the king of Moab. 9.33. But Jehoshaphat, who was a righteous man, encouraged him, and bade him send to the camp, and know whether any prophet of God was come along with them, that we might by him learn from God what we should do. And when one of the servants of Joram said that he had seen there Elisha, the son of Shaphat, the disciple of Elijah, the three kings went to him, at the entreaty of Jehoshaphat; 9.34. and when they were come at the prophet’s tent, which tent was pitched out of the camp, they asked him what would become of the army? and Joram was particularly very pressing with him about it. And when he replied to him, that he should not trouble him, but go to his father’s and mother’s prophets, for they [to be sure] were true prophets, he still desired him to prophesy, and to save them. 9.35. So he swore by God that he would not answer him, unless it were on account of Jehoshaphat, who was a holy and righteous man; and when, at his desire, they brought him a man that could play on the psaltery, the Divine Spirit came upon him as the music played, and he commanded them to dig many trenches in the valley; 9.36. for, said he, “though there appear neither cloud, nor wind, nor storm of rain, ye shall see this river full of water, till the army and the cattle be saved for you by drinking of it. Nor will this be all the favor that you shall receive from God, but you shall also overcome your enemies, and take the best and strongest cities of the Moabites, and you shall cut down their fruit trees, and lay waste their country, and stop up their fountains and rivers.” 9.37. 2. When the prophet had said this, the next day, before the sun-rising, a great torrent ran strongly; for God had caused it to rain very plentifully at the distance of three days’ journey into Edom, so that the army and the cattle found water to drink in abundance. 9.38. But when the Moabites heard that the three kings were coming upon them, and made their approach through the wilderness, the king of Moab gathered his army together presently, and commanded them to pitch their camp upon the mountains, that when the enemies should attempt to enter their country, they might not be concealed from them. 9.39. But when at the rising of the sun they saw the water in the torrent, for it was not far from the land of Moab, and that it was of the color of blood, for at such a time the water especially looks red, by the shining of the sun upon it, they formed a false notion of the state of their enemies, as if they had slain one another for thirst; and that the river ran with their blood. 9.40. However, supposing that this was the case, they desired their king would send them out to spoil their enemies; whereupon they all went in haste, as to an advantage already gained, and came to the enemy’s camp, as supposing them destroyed already. But their hope deceived them; for as their enemies stood round about them, some of them were cut to pieces, and others of them were dispersed, and fled to their own country. 9.41. And when the kings fell into the land of Moab, they overthrew the cities that were in it, and spoiled their fields, and marred them, filling them with stones out of the brooks, and cut down the best of their trees, and stopped up their fountains of water, and overthrew their walls to their foundations. 9.42. But the king of Moab, when he was pursued, endured a siege; and seeing his city in danger of being overthrown by force, made a sally, and went out with seven hundred men, in order to break through the enemy’s camp with his horsemen, on that side where the watch seemed to be kept most negligently; and when, upon trial, he could not get away, for he lighted upon a place that was carefully watched, he returned into the city, and did a thing that showed despair and the utmost distress; 9.43. for he took his eldest son, who was to reign after him, and lifting him up upon the wall, that he might be visible to all the enemies, he offered him as a whole burnt-offering to God, whom, when the kings saw, they commiserated the distress that was the occasion of it, and were so affected, in way of humanity and pity, that they raised the siege, and every one returned to his own house.

2.93. 3. So Caesar, after he had heard both sides, dissolved the assembly for that time; but a few days afterward, he gave the one half of Herod’s kingdom to Archelaus, by the name of Ethnarch, and promised to make him king also afterward, if he rendered himself worthy of that dignity. 2.94. But as to the other half, he divided it into two tetrarchies, and gave them to two other sons of Herod, the one of them to Philip, and the other to that Antipas who contested the kingdom with Archelaus. 2.95. Under this last was Perea and Galilee, with a revenue of two hundred talents; but Batanea, and Trachonitis, and Auranitis, and certain parts of Zeno’s house about Jamnia, with a revenue of a hundred talents, were made subject to Philip; 2.96. while Idumea, and all Judea, and Samaria were parts of the ethnarchy of Archelaus, although Samaria was eased of one quarter of its taxes, out of regard to their not having revolted with the rest of the nation. 2.97. He also made subject to him the following cities, viz. Strato’s Tower, and Sebaste, and Joppa, and Jerusalem; but as to the Grecian cities, Gaza, and Gadara, and Hippos, he cut them off from the kingdom, and added them to Syria. Now the revenue of the country that was given to Archelaus was four hundred talents. 2.98. Salome also, besides what the king had left her in his testaments, was now made mistress of Jamnia, and Ashdod, and Phasaelis. Caesar did moreover bestow upon her the royal palace of Ascalon; by all which she got together a revenue of sixty talents; but he put her house under the ethnarchy of Archelaus. 2.99. And for the rest of Herod’s offspring, they received what was bequeathed to them in his testaments; but, besides that, Caesar granted to Herod’s two virgin daughters five hundred thousand [drachmae] of silver, and gave them in marriage to the sons of Pheroras:

What did David do? b Every Shabbat he would sit and learn all day /b long to protect himself from the Angel of Death. On b that day on which /b the Angel of Death b was supposed to put his soul to rest, /b the day on which David was supposed to die, b the Angel of Death stood before him and was unable /b to overcome him because b his mouth did not pause from study. /b The Angel of Death b said: What shall I do to him? David had a garden [ i bustana /i ] behind his house; the Angel of Death came, climbed, and shook the trees. /b David b went out to see. /b As b he climbed the stair, the stair broke beneath him. /b He was startled and b was silent, /b interrupted his studies for a moment, b and died. /b ,Since David died in the garden, b Solomon sent /b the following question b to the study hall: Father died and is lying in the sun, and the dogs of father’s house are hungry. /b There is room for concern lest the dogs come and harm his body. What shall I do? b They sent /b an answer b to him: Cut up an /b animal b carcass and place it before the dogs. /b Since the dogs are hungry, handling the animal carcass to feed them is permitted. b And /b with regard to b your father, /b it is prohibited to move his body directly. b Place a loaf /b of bread b or an infant on top of him, and /b you can b move him /b into the shade due to the bread or the infant. b And /b is it b not appropriate /b what b Solomon said: “ /b F b or a living dog is better than a dead lion.” /b The ultimate conclusion of this discussion is that life is preferable to death. b And /b now, b with regard to the question that I asked before you; /b Rav Tanḥum spoke modestly, as, actually, they had asked him the question. b A lamp is called i ner /i and a person’s soul is /b also b called i ner /i , /b as it is written: “The spirit of man is the lamp [ i ner /i ] of the Lord” (Proverbs 20:27). b It is preferable /b that b the lamp of /b a being of b flesh and blood, /b an actual lamp, b will be extinguished in favor of the lamp of the Holy One, Blessed be He, /b a person’s soul. Therefore, one is permitted to extinguish a flame for the sake of a sick person.,Since contradictions in Ecclesiastes were mentioned, the Gemara cites additional relevant sources. b Rav Yehuda, son of Rav Shmuel bar Sheilat, said in the name of Rav: The Sages sought to suppress the book of Ecclesiastes /b and declare it apocryphal b because its statements contradict each other /b and it is liable to confuse its readers. b And why did they not suppress it? Because its beginning /b consists of b matters of Torah and its end /b consists of b matters of Torah. /b The ostensibly contradictory details are secondary to the essence of the book, which is Torah. The Gemara elaborates: b Its beginning /b consists of b matters of Torah, as it is written: “What profit has man of all his labor which he labors under the sun?” /b (Ecclesiastes 1:3), b and /b the Sages of b the school /b of b Rabbi Yannai said: /b By inference: b Under the sun is where /b man b has no /b profit from his labor; however, b before the sun, /b i.e., when engaged in the study of Torah, which preceded the sun, b he does have /b profit. b Its ending /b consists of b matters of Torah, as it is written: “The end of the matter, all having been heard: Fear God, and keep His mitzvot; for this is the whole man” ( /b Ecclesiastes 12:13). With regard to this verse, the Gemara asks: b What is /b the meaning of the phrase: b For this is the whole man? Rabbi Eliezer said: The entire world was only created for this /b person. b Rabbi Abba bar Kahana said: This /b person b is equivalent to the entire world. Shimon ben Azzai says and some say /b that b Shimon ben Zoma says: The entire world was only created as companion to this /b man, so that he will not be alone., b And /b to the essence of the matter, the Gemara asks: b What is /b the meaning of: b Its statements /b that b contradict each other? It is written: “Vexation is better than laughter” /b (Ecclesiastes 7:3), b and it is written: “I said of laughter: It is praiseworthy” /b (Ecclesiastes 2:2), which is understood to mean that laughter is commendable. Likewise in one verse b it is written: “So I commended mirth” /b (Ecclesiastes 8:15), b and /b in another verse b it is written: “And of mirth: What does it accomplish?” /b (Ecclesiastes 2:2). The Gemara answers: This is b not difficult, /b as the contradiction can be resolved. b Vexation is better than laughter /b means: The b vexation /b of b the Holy One, Blessed be He, toward the righteous in this world is preferable to the laughter which the Holy One, Blessed be He, laughs with the wicked in this world /b by showering them with goodness. b I said of laughter: It is praiseworthy, that is /b the b laughter which the Holy One, Blessed be He, laughs with the righteous in the World-to-Come. /b ,Similarly, “ b So I commended mirth,” /b that is b the joy of a mitzva. “And of mirth: What does it accomplish?” that is joy that is not /b the joy b of a mitzva. /b The praise of joy mentioned here is b to teach you that the Divine Presence rests /b upon an individual b neither from /b an atmosphere of b sadness, nor from /b an atmosphere of b laziness, nor from /b an atmosphere of b laughter, nor from /b an atmosphere of b frivolity, nor from /b an atmosphere of b idle conversation, nor from /b an atmosphere of b idle chatter, but rather from /b an atmosphere imbued with b the joy of /b a b mitzva. As it was stated /b with regard to Elisha that after he became angry at the king of Israel, his prophetic spirit left him until he requested: b “But now bring me a minstrel; and it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him” /b (II Kings 3:15). b Rav Yehuda said: And, so /b too, one should be joyful before stating b a matter of i halakha /i . Rava said: And, so too, /b one should be joyful before going to sleep in order b to /b have a b good dream. /b ,The Gemara asks: Is b that so, /b that one should introduce matters of i halakha /i joyfully? b Didn’t Rav Giddel say /b that b Rav said: Any Torah scholar who sits before his teacher and his lips are not dripping with myrrh /b due to fear of his teacher, those lips b shall be burnt, /b as b it is stated: “His lips are as lilies, dripping with flowing myrrh [ i shoshanim notefot mor over /i ]” /b (Song of Songs 5:13)? He interpreted homiletically: b Do not read i mor over /i , flowing myrrh; rather, /b read b i mar over /i , flowing bitterness. /b Likewise, b do not read i shoshanim /i , lilies; rather, /b read b i sheshonim /i , that are studying, /b meaning that lips that are studying Torah must be full of bitterness. The Gemara explains: This is b not difficult, /b there is no contradiction here, as b this, /b where it was taught that one should introduce matters of i halakha /i joyfully, is referring b to a rabbi, and that, /b where it was taught that one must be filled with bitterness, is referring b to a student, /b who must listen to his teacher with trepidation. b And if you wish, say /b instead that b this and that /b are referring b to a rabbi, and /b it is b not difficult. This, /b where it was taught that he must be joyful, is b before /b he b begins /b teaching, whereas b that, /b where it was taught that he must be filled with bitterness and trepidation, is b after /b he already b began /b teaching i halakha /i . That explanation is b like that which Rabba /b did. b Before he began /b teaching i halakha /i b to the Sages, he would say something humorous and the Sages would be cheered. Ultimately, he sat in trepidation and began /b teaching the i halakha /i ., b And, /b the Gemara continues, the Sages b sought to suppress the book of Proverbs as well /b because b its statements contradict each other. And why did they not suppress it? They said: /b In the case of b the book of Ecclesiastes, didn’t we analyze it and find an explanation /b that its statements were not contradictory? b Here too, let us analyze it. And what is /b the meaning of: b Its statements contradict each other? /b On the one hand, b it is written: “Answer not a fool according to his folly, /b lest you also be like him” (Proverbs 26:4), b and /b on the other hand, b it is written: “Answer a fool according to his folly, /b lest he be wise in his own eyes” (Proverbs 26:5). The Gemara resolves this apparent contradiction: This is b not difficult, /b as b this, /b where one should answer a fool, is referring to a case where the fool is making claims b about Torah matters; /b whereas b that, /b where one should not answer him, is referring to a case where the fool is making claims b about mundane matters. /b ,The Gemara relates how Sages conducted themselves in both of those circumstances. b As in /b the case b of that /b man b who came before Rabbi /b Yehuda HaNasi and b said to him: Your wife /b is b my wife and your children /b are b my children, /b Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi b said to him: /b Would b you like to drink a cup of wine? He drank and burst /b and died. Similarly, the Gemara relates: b There was that man who came before Rabbi Ḥiyya and said to him: Your mother /b is b my wife, and you /b are b my son. He said to him: /b Would b you like to drink a cup of wine? He drank and burst /b and died. b Rabbi Ḥiyya said /b with regard to the incident involving Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi: b Rabbi /b Yehuda HaNasi’s b prayer /b that b his children will not be rendered i mamzerim /i , /b children of illicit relations, b was effective for him. As when Rabbi /b Yehuda HaNasi b would pray, he said /b after his prayer: b May it be Your will, O Lord, my God, that You will deliver me today from impudent people and from insolence. /b Insolence, in this case, refers to i mamzerut /i . It was due to his prayer that that man burst and was unsuccessful in disparaging Rabbi Yehuda HaNasi’s children., b In matters of Torah, what is /b the case with regard to which the verse said that one should respond to a fool’s folly? b As in /b the case b where Rabban Gamliel was sitting and he interpreted /b a verse b homiletically: In the future, /b in the World-to-Come, b a woman will give birth every day, as it says: “The woman with child and her that gives birth together” /b (Jeremiah 31:7), explaining that birth will occur on the same day as conception. b A certain student scoffed at him /b and b said: /b That cannot be, as it has already been stated: b “There is nothing new under the sun” /b (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Rabban Gamliel b said to him: Come and I will show you an example /b of this b in this world. He took him outside and showed him a chicken /b that lays eggs every day., b And furthermore: Rabban Gamliel sat and interpreted /b a verse b homiletically: In the future, /b in the World-to-Come, b trees will produce fruits every day, as it is stated: “And it shall bring forth branches and bear fruit” /b (Ezekiel 17:23); b just as a branch /b grows b every day, so too, fruit /b will be produced b every day. A certain student scoffed at him /b and b said: Isn’t it written: There is nothing new under the sun? He said to him: Come and I will show you an example /b of this b in this world. He went outside and showed him a caper bush, /b part of which is edible during each season of the year., b And furthermore: Rabban Gamliel sat and interpreted /b a verse b homiletically: In the future, /b the World-to-Come, b Eretz Yisrael will produce cakes and /b fine b wool garments /b that will grow in the ground, b as it is stated: “Let abundant grain be in the land /b .” b A certain student scoffed at him and said: There is nothing new under the sun. He said to him: Come and I will show you an example in this world. He went outside /b and b showed him truffles and mushrooms, /b which emerge from the earth over the course of a single night and are shaped like a loaf of bread. b And with regard to wool garments, /b he showed him b the covering of a heart of palm, /b a young palm branch, which is wrapped in a thin net-like covering.,Since the Gemara discussed the forbearance of Sages, who remain silent in the face of nonsensical comments, it cites additional relevant examples. b The Sages taught /b in a i baraita /i : b A person should always be patient like Hillel and not impatient like Shammai. /b The Gemara related: There was b an incident /b involving b two people /b
