(2) \"Adonai said to Avram.\" (Gen. 12:1) R' B'rechia opened: \"Your ointments yield a sweet fragrance, Your name is like finest oil,\" (Song 1:3). Said R' B'rechia, \"To what was Avraham analogized? To a flask of balsam liquid with a closely fitting lid, resting in a corner, and whose aroma was not wafted; once it was moved, its aroma was wafted. Thus said the Holy One, Blessed be He, to Avraham: Move yourself from one place to another, and your name will be enlarged in the world. \"" 39.14. “And the souls that they had made in Haran.” Said Rabbi Elazar ben Zimra: Even if every creature on earth conspired to create (out of nothing) even one mosquito, they could not give it a soul--and you say “the souls that they had made.” Therefore (they must be) they must be those who lived with them and converted. And it it meant “converted” why did it say “made?” In order to teach you that each one who brings an idol worshipper and converts him, it is as though he created him. And why did it say “that they made” rather than “that he made?” Said Rav Huna: Abraham would convert the men, and Sarah would convert the women. " 40.4. R. Phinehas said in the name of R. Reuben: Two people were principal actors and yet made themselves subordinate, viz. Abraham and Barak. Barak, as it is written, And she sent and called Barak . . . And Barak said unto her : If thou wilt go with me, then I will go ; but if thou wilt not go with me, I will not go (Judg. iv, 6 ff.). R. Judah explained : If thou wilt go with me to Kadesh, 3 I will go with thee against Hazor 4 ; whilst if thou wilt not go with me to Kadesh, I will not go with thee against Hazor. R. Nehemiah explained it: If thou wilt go with me in Song, 5 I will go with thee to battle; but if thou wilt not go with me in Song, I will not go with thee to battle. And she said; I will surely go with thee, notwithstanding (efes) the journey that thou takest shall not be for thy honour (ib. 9). R. Reuben said: [Efes] is a Greek word, as though to say hafes (let alone).* Said she to him: 'What thinkest thou? that the glory for the Song shall be given to thee alone!* He retired into the second place, as it is written, Then sang Deborah and Barak the son of Abinoam, etc. (ib, v, i). 2 [Translation 1939 Freedman and Simon, Soncino Press]"
