Then I wrote out their petition, and the prayer in regard to their spirits and their deeds individually and in regard to their 13.7. requests that they should have forgiveness and length.

Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Haiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions;" 2.18. that they might ask mercy of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his companions should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon." 2.19.

Daniel spoke and said: Blessed be the name of God From everlasting even unto everlasting; For wisdom and might are His;" 9.1. In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the seed of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans;" 9.2. in the first year of his reign I Daniel meditated in the books, over the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish for the desolations of Jerusalem seventy years." 9.3.

And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made confession, and said: ‘O Lord, the great and awful God, who keepest covet and mercy with them that love Thee and keep Thy commandments," 9.5. we have sinned, and have dealt iniquitously, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, and have turned aside from Thy commandments and from Thine ordices;" 9.6. neither have we hearkened unto Thy servants the prophets, that spoke in Thy name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land." 9.7. Unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth righteousness, but unto us confusion of face, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither Thou hast driven them, because they dealt treacherously with Thee." 9.8. O LORD, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against Thee." 9.9. To the Lord our God belong compassions and forgivenesses; for we have rebelled against Him;" 9.10. neither have we hearkened to the voice of the LORD our God, to walk in His laws, which He set before us by His servants the prophets. ." 9.11. Yea, all Israel have transgressed Thy law, and have turned aside, so as not to hearken to Thy voice; and so there hath been poured out upon us the curse and the oath that is written in the Law of Moses the servant of God; for we have sinned against Him." 9.12. And He hath confirmed His word, which He spoke against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil; so that under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem." 9.13. As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us; yet have we not entreated the favour of the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and have discernment in Thy truth."

As it is statedwith regard to Elijah and his disciple Elisha: b“And it was as they walked along, talking, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fireand horses of fire, which parted them both asunder” (II Kings 2:11). bThe reasonthey were not burned by the chariot of fire is bthat there was speechexchanged between them, which presumably was words of Torah, bbut if there had been no speech, theywould have been bdeserving of being burnedby the chariot., bAnd Rabbi Ile’a bar Yeverekhya says:If there are btwo Torah scholars who reside in the same city and they are not pleasant to each other with regard to ihalakha /i,but are constantly fighting, boneof them will bdie andthe other bonewill be bexiled. Asit bis stated: “That the manslayer might flee there, who slays his neighbor without knowledge”(Deuteronomy 4:42), band “knowledge”means bnothing otherthan bTorah, as it is stated: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”(Hosea 4:6)., bRabbi Yehuda, son of Rabbi Ḥiyya, says:With regard to bany Torah scholar who engages in Torahstudy bwhile experiencing the pressureof poverty, bhis prayer is listened to, as it is stated: “For, O people that dwells in Zion at Jerusalem, you shall weep no more; He will surely be gracious to you at the voice of your cry. When He shall hear, He will answer you”(Isaiah 30:19), band after it is written: “And the Lord shall give you sparse bread and scant water”(Isaiah 30:20). This verse indicates that those who sit and study Torah, that is, the people who dwell in Zion, and eat bread sparingly, will have their prayers answered by God., bRabbi Abbahu says:A Torah scholar who engages in Torah study despite economic pressures bis satiated with the glory of the Divine Presence, as it is statedin the same verse, above: b“And your eyes shall behold your Teacher.” Rabbi Aḥa, son of Ḥanina, said: Even theconcealing bpartition[ipargod/b] before the Divine Presence bis not locked before him, as it is stated: “And your Teacher shall not hide Himself anymore”(Isaiah 30:20).,§ The mishna states that bRabban Shimon ben Gamliel says in the name of Rabbi Yehoshua: From the day that the Temple was destroyed, there is noday that does not include some form of curse. bRava says: Each and every day is more cursed than the previous one, as it is statedin the chapter detailing the curses in the book of Deuteronomy: b“In the morning you will say, would that it were evening, and in the evening you will say, would that it were morning”(Deuteronomy 28:67). It is unclear bwhich morningthe verse means. bIf we saythat in the evening he will wish it would be bthe following morning, does he know what will bethe outcome of the next morning, which would cause him to yearn for its arrival? bRather,it must mean the morning bthat has passed;that is, in the evening they will pine for the previous morning, because their situation is continuously worsening.,The Gemara poses a question: bButif everything is deteriorating, bwhy does the worldcontinue to bexist?The Gemara answers: bBy the sanctification thatis said in the borderof prayers, after the passage that begins: And a redeemer shall come to Israel, which includes the recitation and translation of the sanctification said by the angels, bandby the response: bLet His great namebe blessed, etc., which is recited after the study bof iaggada /i. As it is stated: “A land of thick darkness, as darkness itself; a land of the shadow of death, without any order”(Job 10:22). bTherefore,it can be inferred from this verse that if bthere are ordersof prayer and study, the land bshall appear fromamidst bthe darkness. /b,§ The mishna taught that since the destruction of the Temple, bdew has not descended for a blessing, and the taste has been removed from fruit. It is taughtin a ibaraita /i: bRabbi Shimon ben Elazar says:The lost bpurity has removed the taste and the aroma;the btithesthat were not separated bhave removed the fat of grain. /b,The Gemara relates that bRav Huna found a fragrant date. He took it and wrapped it in his shawl. Rabba, his son, cameand bsaid to him: I smell the aroma of a fragrantdate. Rav Huna bsaid to him: My son, there isclearly bpurity in you,as you were able to notice the fragrance. bHe gave it to him. Meanwhile, Abba,Rabba’s bson, arrived.Rabba btookthe date and bgave it tohim. Rav Huna bsaid toRabba: bMy son, you have made my heart rejoicewith your purity, band you have blunted my teeth,by showing your preference for your own son. The Gemara comments: bThisexplains the folk saying bthat people say: The love of a father is for the sons; the love of the sons is for their own sons,more than for their father.,The Gemara relates another incident: bRav Aḥa bar Ya’akov took care of Rav Ya’akov, the son of his daughter,who was an orphan. bWhenthe grandchild bgrew up,his grandfather once bsaid to him: Give me water to drink. He said to him: I am not your son,and I am not obligated in your honor as a son must honor his father. The Gemara again comments: bAnd thisexplains the folk saying bthat people say: Raise, raiseyour grandchild, but in the end he will retort: bI am the son of your daughter,and I do not have to take care of you., strongMISHNA: /strong bIn the war [ ipulemus /i] of Vespasianthe Sages bdecreed upon the crowns of bridegrooms,i.e., that bridegrooms may no longer wear crowns, band upon the drums,meaning they also banned the playing of drums., bIn the war of Titus theyalso bdecreed upon the crowns of brides, andthey decreed bthat a person should not teach his son Greek. /b, bIn the last war,meaning the bar Kokheva revolt, bthey decreed that a bride may not go out in a palanquin inside the city, but our Sages permitted a bride to go out in a palanquin inside the city,as this helps the bride maintain her modesty.,The mishna lists more things that ceased: bFromthe time bwhen Rabbi Meir died, those who relate parables ceased; fromthe time bwhen ben Azzai died, the diligent ceased; fromthe time bwhen ben Zoma died, the exegetists ceased; fromthe time bwhen Rabbi Akiva died, the honor of the Torah ceased; fromthe time bwhen Rabbi Ḥanina ben Dosa died, the men ofwondrous baction ceased; fromthe time bwhen Rabbi Yosei the Small died, the pious were no more. And why was he called the Small? Because he was the smallest of the pious,meaning he was one of the least important of the pious men., bFromthe time bwhen Rabban Yoḥa ben Zakkai died, the glory of wisdom ceased; fromthe time bwhen Rabban Gamliel the Elder died, the honor of the Torah ceased, and purity and asceticism died. Fromthe time bwhen Rabbi Yishmael ben Pavi died, the glory of the priesthood ceased; fromthe time bwhen RabbiYehuda HaNasi bdied, humility and fear of sin ceased. /b,gemara bThe Sages taught: Rabbi Pineḥas ben Ya’ir says: Fromthe time bwhen theSecond bTemple was destroyed, the iḥaverimand free menof noble lineage bwere ashamed, and their heads were coveredin shame, band men of action dwindled, and violent and smooth-talking men gained the upper hand, and none seek, and none ask, and none inquireof the fear of Heaven., bUpon whomis there bfor us to rely?Only bupon our Father in Heaven. /b, bRabbi Eliezer the Great says: From the day theSecond bTemple was destroyed,the generations have deteriorated: bScholars have begun to become like scribesthat teach children, band scribes have become like beadles, and beadles have become like ignoramuses, and ignoramuses /b
16. Anon., 4 Ezra, 1.24

1.24. What shall I do to you, O Jacob? You would not obey me, O Judah. I will turn to other nations and will give them my name, that they may keep my statutes.
17. Anon., Apocalypse of Abraham, 12.1-12.2

18. Anon., 4 Baruch, 4.11, 6.7-6.16

4.11. When he had said this, Baruch departed from the city, weeping andsaying: Grieving because of you, Jerusalem, I went out from you. 6.7. Revive in your tabernacle, in your virginal faith, and believe that you will live! 6.8. Look at this basket of figs -- for behold, they are 66 years old and have not become shrivelled or rotten, but they are dripping milk. 6.9. So it will be with you, my flesh, if you do what is commanded you by the angel of righteousness. 6.10. He who preserved the basket of figs, the same will again preserve you by his power. 6.11. When Baruch had said this, he said to Abimelech: Stand up and let us pray that the Lord may make known to us how we shall be able to send to Jeremiah in Babylon the report about the shelter provided for you on the way. 6.12. And Baruch prayed, saying: Lord God, our strength is the elect light which comes forth from your mouth. 6.13. We beseech and beg of your goodness -- you whose great name no one is able to know -- hear the voice of your servants and let knowledge come into our hearts. 6.13. These, then, are the words which the Lord, the God of Israel, spoke, who led us out of Egypt, out of the great furnace: Because you did not keep my ordices, but your heart was lifted up, and you were haughty before me, in anger and wrath I delivered you to the furnace in Babylon. 6.14. What shall we do, and how shall we send this report to Jeremiah in Babylon? 6.15. And while Baruch was still praying, behold an angel of the Lord cameand said all these words to Baruch: Agent of the light, do not be anxious about how you will send to Jeremiah; for an eagle is coming to you at the hour of light tomorrow, and you will direct him to Jeremiah. 6.16. Therefore, write in a letter: Say to the children of Israel: Let the stranger who comes among you be set apart and let 15 days go by; and after this I will lead you into your city, says the Lord.
