And thou hast been secure in thy wickedness, Thou hast said: ‘None seeth me’; Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, It hath perverted thee; And thou hast said in thy heart. ’I am, and there is none else beside me.’" 47.12. Stand now with thine enchantments, And with the multitude of thy sorceries, Wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; If so be thou shalt be able to profit, If so be thou mayest prevail." 47.13. Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, The monthly prognosticators, Stand up, and save thee From the things that shall come upon thee." 62.3.

And when I passed by thee, and saw thee wallowing in thy blood, I said unto thee: In thy blood, live; yea, I said unto thee: In thy blood, live;" 16.7. I cause thee to increase, even as the growth of the field. And thou didst increase and grow up, and thou camest to excellent beauty: thy breasts were fashioned, and thy hair was grown; yet thou wast naked and bare." 16.8. Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, and, behold, thy time was the time of love, I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness; yea, I swore unto thee, and entered into a covet with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest Mine." 16.9. Then washed I thee with water; yea, I cleansed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil." 16.10. I clothed thee also with richly woven work, and shod thee with sealskin, and I wound fine linen about thy head, and covered thee with silk." 16.11. I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck." 16.12. And I put a ring upon thy nose, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thy head." 16.13. Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and richly woven work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil; and thou didst wax exceeding beautiful, and thou wast meet for royal estate." 16.14. And thy renown went forth among the nations for thy beauty; for it was perfect, through My splendour which I had put upon thee, saith the Lord GOD." 16.15. But thou didst trust in thy beauty and play the harlot because of thy renown, and didst pour out thy harlotries on every one that passed by; his it was." 16.16. And thou didst take of thy garments, and didst make for thee high places decked with divers colours, and didst play the harlot upon them; the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so." 16.17. Thou didst also take thy fair jewels of My gold and of My silver, which I had given thee, and madest for thee images of men, and didst play the harlot with them;" 16.18. and thou didst take thy richly woven garments and cover them, and didst set Mine oil and Mine incense before them." 16.19. My bread also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou didst even set it before them for a sweet savour, and thus it was; saith the Lord GOD." 16.20. Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto Me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Were thy harlotries a small matter," 16.21. that thou hast slain My children, and delivered them up, in setting them apart unto them?" 16.22. And in all thine abominations and thy harlotries thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast wallowing in thy blood." 16.23. And it came to pass after all thy wickedness—woe, woe unto thee! saith the Lord GOD—" 16.25. Thou hast built thy lofty place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty an abomination, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy harlotries." 16.26. Thou hast also played the harlot with the Egyptians, thy neighbours, great of flesh; and hast multiplied thy harlotry, to provoke Me." 16.27. Behold, therefore I have stretched out My hand over thee, and have diminished thine allowance, and delivered thee unto the will of them that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, that are ashamed of thy lewd way." 16.28. Thou hast played the harlot also with the Assyrians, without having enough; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet thou wast not satisfied." 16.29. Thou hast moreover multiplied thy harlotry with the land of traffic, even with Chaldea; and yet thou didst not have enough herewith." 16.30. How weak is thy heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of a wanton harlot;" 16.31. in that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thy lofty place in every street; and hast not been as a harlot that enhanceth her hire." 16.32. Thou wife that committest adultery, that takest strangers instead of thy husband—" 16.33. to all harlots gifts are given; but thou hast given thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hast bribed them to come unto thee from every side in thy harlotries." 16.34. And the contrary is in thee from other women, in that thou didst solicit to harlotry, and wast not solicited; and in that thou givest hire, and no hire is given unto thee, thus thou art contrary." 16.35. Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD!" 16.36. Thus saith the Lord GOD: Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness uncovered through thy harlotries with thy lovers; and because of all the idols of thy abominations, and for the blood of thy children, that thou didst give unto them;" 16.37. therefore behold, I will gather all thy lovers, unto whom thou hast been pleasant, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them against thee from every side, and will uncover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness." 16.38. And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed blood are judged; and I will bring upon thee the blood of fury and jealousy." 16.39. I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and break down thy lofty places; and they shall strip thee of thy clothes, and take thy fair jewels; and they shall leave thee naked and bare." 16.40. They shall also bring up an assembly against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords." 16.41. And they shall burn thy houses with fire, and execute judgments upon thee in the sight of many women; and I will cause thee to cease from playing the harlot, and thou shalt also give no hire any more." 16.42. So will I satisfy My fury upon thee, and My jealousy shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry." 16.43. Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but hast fretted Me in all these things; lo, therefore I also will bring thy way upon thy head, saith the Lord GOD; or hast thou not committed this lewdness above all thine abominations?" 16.44. Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against thee, saying: As the mother, so her daughter." 16.45. Thou art thy mother’s daughter, that loatheth her husband and her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, who loathed their husbands and their children; your mother was a Hittite, and your father an Amorite." 16.46. And thine elder sister is Samaria, that dwelleth at thy left hand, she and her daughters; and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters." 16.47. Yet hast thou not walked in their ways, nor done after their abominations; but in a very little while thou didst deal more corruptly than they in all thy ways." 16.48. As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters." 16.49. Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom: pride, fulness of bread, and careless ease was in her and in her daughters; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." 16.50. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before Me; therefore I removed them when I saw it." 16.51. Neither hath Samaria committed even half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters by all thine abominations which thou hast done." 16.52. Thou also, bear thine own shame, in that thou hast given judgment for thy sisters; through thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they, they are more righteous than thou; yea, be thou also confounded, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters." 17.17. Neither shall Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company succour him in the war, when they cast up mounds and build forts, to cut off many souls;" 23.9. Wherefore I delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted." 23.10. These uncovered her nakedness; they took her sons and her daughters, and her they slew with the sword; and she became a byword among women, for judgments were executed upon her." 23.22. Therefore, O Oholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I will raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy soul is alienated, and I will bring them against thee on every side:" 23.23. the Babylonians and all the Chaldeans, Pekod and Shoa and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them, handsome young men, governors and rulers all of them, captains and councillors, all of them riding upon horses." 23.24. And they shall come against thee with hosts, chariots, and wheels, and with an assembly of peoples; they shall set themselves in array against thee with buckler and shield and helmet round about; and I will commit the judgment unto them, and they shall judge thee according to their judgments." 23.25. And I will set My jealousy against thee, and they shall deal with thee in fury; they shall take away thy nose and thine ears, and thy residue shall fall by the sword; they shall take thy sons and thy daughters, and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire." 23.26. They shall also strip thee of thy clothes, and take away thy fair jewels." 23.27. Thus will I make thy lewdness to cease from thee, and thy harlotry brought from the land of Egypt, so that thou shalt not lift up thine eyes unto them, nor remember Egypt any more." 23.28. For thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I will deliver thee into the hand of them whom thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy soul is alienated;" 23.29. and they shall deal with thee in hatred, and shall take away all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare; and the nakedness of thy harlotries shall be uncovered, both thy lewdness and thy harlotries." 23.30. These things shall be done unto thee, for that thou hast gone astray after the nations, and because thou art polluted with their idols." 23.31. In the way of thy sister hast thou walked; therefore will I give her cup into thy hand." 23.32. Thus saith the Lord GOD: Thou shalt drink of thy sister’s cup, Which is deep and large; Thou shalt be for a scorn and a derision; It is full to the uttermost." 23.33. Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, With the cup of astonishment and appalment, With the cup of thy sister Samaria." 23.34. Thou shalt even drink it and drain it, And thou shalt craunch the sherds thereof, And shalt tear thy breasts; For I have spoken it, Saith the Lord GOD." 23.35. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD: Because thou hast forgotten Me, and cast Me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy harlotries.’" 23.36. The LORD said moreover unto me: ‘Son of man, wilt thou judge Oholah and Oholibah? then declare unto them their abominations." 23.37. For they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery; and their sons, whom they bore unto Me, they have also set apart unto them to be devoured." 23.38. Moreover this they have done unto Me: they have defiled My sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned My sabbaths." 23.41. and sattest upon a stately bed, with a table prepared before it, whereupon thou didst set Mine incense and Mine oil." 23.44. For every one went in unto her, as men go in unto a harlot; so went they in unto Oholah and unto Oholibah, the lewd women." 23.46. For thus saith the Lord GOD: An assembly shall be brought up against them, and they shall be made a horror and a spoil." 23.47. And the assembly shall stone them with stones, and despatch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and burn up their houses with fire." 26.7. For thus saith the Lord GOD: Behold, I will bring upon Tyre Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, king of kings, from the north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and a company, and much people." 38.15. And thou shalt come from thy place out of the uttermost parts of the north, thou, and many peoples with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company and a mighty army;"
12. Mishnah, Berachot, 5.5 (1st cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

5.5. One who is praying and makes a mistake, it is a bad sign for him. And if he is the messenger of the congregation (the prayer leader) it is a bad sign for those who have sent him, because one’s messenger is equivalent to one’s self. They said about Rabbi Hanina ben Dosa that he used to pray for the sick and say, “This one will die, this one will live.” They said to him: “How do you know?” He replied: “If my prayer comes out fluently, I know that he is accepted, but if not, then I know that he is rejected.”"
13. Mishnah, Sotah, 3.4 (1st cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

3.4. She had barely finished drinking when her face turns yellow, her eyes protrude and her veins swell. And [those who see her] exclaim, “Remove her! Remove her, so that the temple-court should not be defiled”. If she had merit, it [causes the water] to suspend its effect upon her. Some merit suspends the effect for one year, some merit suspends the effects for two years, and some merit suspends the effect for three years. Hence Ben Azzai said: a person must teach his daughter Torah, so that if she has to drink [the water of bitterness], she should know that the merit suspends its effect. Rabbi Eliezer says: whoever teaches his daughter Torah teaches her lasciviousness. Rabbi Joshua says: a woman prefers one kav (of food) and sexual indulgence to nine kav and sexual separation. He used to say, a foolish pietist, a cunning wicked person, a female separatist, and the blows of separatists bring destruction upon the world."

The great Rabbi Hoshaya opened [with the verse (Mishlei 8:30),] \"I [the Torah] was an amon to Him and I was a plaything to Him every day.\" Amon means \"pedagogue\" (i.e. ny). Amon means \"covered.\" Amon means \"hidden.\" And there is one who says amon means \"great.\" Amon means \"ny,\" as in (Bamidbar 11:12) “As a ny (omein) carries the suckling child.\" Amon means \"covered,\" as in (Eichah 4:5) \"Those who were covered (emunim) in scarlet have embraced refuse heaps.\" Amon means \"hidden,\" as in (Esther 2:7) \"He hid away (omein) Hadassah.\" Amon means \"great,\" as in (Nahum 3:8) \"Are you better than No-amon [which dwells in the rivers]?\" which the Targum renders as, \"Are you better than Alexandria the Great (amon), which dwells between the rivers?\" Alternatively, amon means \"artisan.\" The Torah is saying, \"I was the artisan's tool of Hashem.\" In the way of the world, a king of flesh and blood who builds a castle does not do so from his own knowledge, but rather from the knowledge of an architect, and the architect does not build it from his own knowledge, but rather he has scrolls and books in order to know how to make rooms and doorways. So too Hashem gazed into the Torah and created the world. Similarly the Torah says, \"Through the reishis Hashem created [the heavens and the earth],\" and reishis means Torah, as in \"Hashem made me [the Torah] the beginning (reishis) of His way\" (Mishlei 8:22)."

And baccording to the one who saidthat the reason is bdue to the neglect ofthe mitzva to be bfruitful and multiply,there is no room for concern: Since there is only bone day,the eve of the Festival, when he can get married and save money on the feast, ba man will not delayhis wedding in order to get married then, lest some unforeseen circumstance arise that will prevent him from getting married on that day. Therefore, according to all the reasons offered, there is no need to prohibit weddings on the eve of a Festival.,§ The Gemara asks: With regard to the principle that bone may not mixone bjoy withanother bjoy, from where do wederive it? The Gemara explains that the source is bas it is writtenwith regard to the dedication of the Temple: b“So Solomon held the feast at that time, and all Israel with him, a great congregation, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt, before the Lord our God, seven days and seven days, fourteen days”(I Kings 8:65). bAnd if it is sothat bone mayin fact bmixone bjoy withanother bjoy, he should have waited until the festivalof iSukkot /i, which was the second set of seven days, band madea feast of bsevendays bfor this and for that,i.e., for the dedication of the Temple and for the festival of iSukkottogether. The fact that he did not do so indicates that one must not mix one joy with another.,The Gemara raises a question: bPerhaps,however, it may be derived from here only that bwe may not delaya wedding to be on a Festival, just as King Solomon did not delay the Temple dedication to be on the Festival, but nevertheless, bwhere it happensto occur that way, bwe mayindeed bpreparea feast to celebrate both occasions together. The Gemara answers: If this were permitted, Solomon bshould have left a smallpart of the Temple unfinished until the Festival, and thereby arranged for a joint celebration of the dedication of the Temple and the festival of iSukkot /i.,The Gemara responds: bOne may not leaveany part of bthe building of the Templeundone, as a mitzva should be completed as quickly as possible. The Gemara modifies its previous opinion: Solomon bshould have left the cubit- /bwide plates with spikes, which were designed to beliminate the ravens,unfinished. The roof of the Temple was fitted with sharp metal spikes to deter the ravens, who were attracted by the smell of the sacrificial meat, from perching there. Although this was not considered a part of the building itself, delaying its installation would have allowed Solomon to delay the celebration of the Temple dedication.,The Gemara rejects this opinion as well: bThe cubit /b-wide plates with spikes to beliminate the ravens was a necessaryelement bin the building of the Temple,and consequently Solomon could not delay its construction either. bRather,the proof is bfrom the redundancyin bthe verse. Since it is written “fourteen days,” why do Ineed the verse to specify b“seven days and seven days”? Learn from itthat btheseseven days of celebrating the Temple dedication must bbe discrete, andsimilarly, btheseseven days of celebrating the Festival must bbe discrete,due to the principle that one may not mix one joy with another.,§ Apropos the discussion of the celebration at Solomon’s dedication of the Temple, the Gemara relates that bRabbi Parnakh said that Rabbi Yoḥa said: That year,the Jewish people bdid not observe Yom Kippur,as the seven-day celebration of the dedication of the Temple coincided with Yom Kippur and all seven days were celebrated with feasting. bAndthe people bwere worried and said: Perhaps the enemies of the Jewish people,a euphemism for the Jewish people themselves, bhave become liable to be destroyedfor the transgression of eating on Yom Kippur, which is punishable by ikaret /i. bA Divine Voice issued forth and said to them: All of you are designated for life in the World-to-Come. /b,The Gemara asks: bWhat derivationled them to conclude that it was permitted for them to eat on Yom Kippur? The Gemara explains that they based their ruling on an ia fortiori /iinference: bIfat the dedication of bthe Tabernacle, whose sanctity is not a permanent sanctity, an individual’s offering,i.e., an offering of one of the tribal princes, boverridesthe prohibition of bShabbat,as the princes’ offerings were brought every day including Shabbat despite the attendant transgression of ba prohibitionthat is punishable by bstoning;then with regard to the dedication of bthe Temple, whose sanctity is a permanent sanctityand the offerings brought there were bcommunal offerings,is it bnot all the more soclear that the dedication of the Temple overrides the prohibition of bYom Kippur,a violation that is bpunishable bythe less severe punishment of ikaret /i? /b,The Gemara asks: bButif they had firm basis for their behavior, bwhy were they worried?The Gemara answers that one can refute this ia fortioriinference as follows: bThere,at the dedication of the Tabernacle, Shabbat was desecrated only bfor the necessitiesof the Temple service to God on bHigh,i.e., by sacrificing offerings. bHere,at the dedication of the Temple, they desecrated Yom Kippur by eating and drinking, which was for bthe need of commonmortals. Based on this distinction the Gemara suggests: bHere too,at the dedication of the Temple bthey shouldhave bperformedthe rites of the sacrificial offerings and bthey should nothave beaten or drunk.The Gemara answers: bThere is nocomplete brejoicing without eating and drinking. /b,With regard to the proof itself, the Gemara asks: bAnd from where do wederive that the offerings brought at the dedication of bthe Tabernacle overrode Shabbat? If we sayit is bas it is writtenwith regard to the offerings brought by the tribal princes: b“On the first day”(Numbers 7:12) band “on the seventh day”(Numbers 7:48), this is not a conclusive proof, as bperhapsthis refers not to the seventh day of the week but to bthe seventhday bofsacrificial bofferings.Perhaps they skipped Shabbat and did not sacrifice offerings connected to the dedication of the Tabernacle on that day. bRav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak said: The versealso bstates: “On the day of the eleventh day”(Numbers 7:72). The repetition of the word day indicates that bjust as a day is allone bcontinuousperiod of time, bso too, the elevendays bwere allone bcontinuousperiod of time, with no break in the middle, even for Shabbat.,The Gemara asks: bBut perhapsthis refers only to bdays that are fitfor an individual’s offerings, i.e., the offerings were sacrificed on eleven consecutive days that were suitable for sacrificing the offerings of an individual, but not on Shabbat. The Gemara answers: In banother verse it is written: “On the day of the twelfth day”(Numbers 7:78), indicating that bjust as a day is allone bcontinuousperiod of time, bso too, the twelve days were allone bcontinuousperiod of time.,The Gemara asks again: bBut perhaps here toothis is referring to bdays that are fitfor sacrificing the offerings of an individual? The Gemara rejects this opinion: bIf so, why do Ineed btwo verses,the verse with regard to the eleventh day and the verse with regard to the twelfth day, to teach the same principle? The fact that the Torah uses repetitive phraseology in both verses indicates that all the days were consecutive, without a break for Shabbat.,The Gemara asks: bAnd from where do wederive that the feasting at the time of the dedication of bthe Temple overrides Yom Kippur,so that the people did not have to fast? bIf we sayit is derived bfrom that which is written: Fourteen days, perhapsthis is referring to bdays that are fitfor feasting, to the exclusion of Yom Kippur. The Gemara answers: This is bderivedby means of a verbal analogy between the word b“day”mentioned in this context bandthe word b“day”mentioned bthere,with regard to the dedication of the Tabernacle. Just as there the days were consecutive, without a break for Shabbat, so too here, the days were consecutive, without a break for Yom Kippur.,It was stated above that ba Divine Voice issued forth and said to them: All of you are designated for life in the World-to-Come.The Gemara asks: bAnd from where do wederive bthatGod bpardoned themfor this sin? The Gemara answers: The Sage bTaḥlifa taughtin a ibaraitathat the verse states: b“On the eighth day he sent the people away, and they blessed the king, and went to their tents joyful and glad of heart for all the goodness that the Lord had done for David His servant and for Israel His people”(I Kings 8:66).,This verse may be expounded as follows: The words b“to their tents”indicate bthat they went and found their wives ina state of bpurity,as the terms tent and house often denote one’s wife. The term b“joyful”is referring to the fact bthey had enjoyed the splendor of the Divine Presence,as there was a revelation of the Divine Presence when the offerings were sacrificed in the Temple. The phrase b“and glad of heart”refers to the fact that beach of their wives conceived a male child.The words b“for all the goodness”indicate bthat a Divine Voice issued forth and said to them: All of you are designated for life in the World-to-Come,which is the ultimate good.,The aforementioned verse stated: “For all the goodness that the Lord had done bfor David His servant and for Israel His people. /b” The Gemara asks: bGranted,when the verse mentions the goodness that God did bfor Israel His people,this is referring to the fact bthat He pardoned them the sin ofeating on bYom Kippurthat year; bbut what isthe goodness that God performed bfor David His servant? /b, bRav Yehuda said that Rav said: When Solomon sought to bring the Ark into the Temple the gates clung togetherand could not be opened. bSolomon uttered twenty-four songsof praise, bandhis prayer bwas not answered. He began and said: “Lift up your heads, O you gates,and be lifted up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in” (Psalms 24:7), bbutonce again his prayer bwas not answered,and the Temple gates remained closed., bOnce he said:“Now therefore arise, O Lord God, into your resting place, You, and the Ark of Your strength; Let your priests, O Lord God, be clothed with victory and let Your pious ones rejoice in goodness. bO Lord God, do not turn away the face of Your anointed; remember the faithful love of David Your servant”(II Chronicles 6:41–42), bhe was immediately answered. At that moment the faces of David’s enemies turneddark blike thecharred bbottom of a pot, and all knew that the Holy One, Blessed be He, forgave him for that sininvolving Bathsheba, as they saw that it was only in his merit that the gates of the Temple opened.,The Gemara relates that bRabbi Yonatan ben Asmai and Rabbi Yehuda, son of converts, studied the portiondealing with boaths in the study hall of Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai.After completing their studies, the disciples btook leave oftheir master bin the evening,but did not yet leave the city. bIn the morning they went back and took leave of hima second time. bHe said to them: Did you notalready btake leave of meyesterday bin the evening? /b, bThey said to him: You have taught us, our teacher,that ba disciple who takes leave of his teacher andthen bstays overnight in the same city must take leave of him an additional time, as it is statedat the conclusion of the dedication of the Temple: b“On the eighth day he sent the people away, and they blessed the king”(I Kings 8:66), bandelsewhere bit is written: “And on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people away”(II Chronicles 7:10). The eighth day in the verse is referring to the Eighth Day of Assembly, the twenty-second of the month of Tishrei, yet it says that he sent the people away on the next day, the twenty-third of the month., bRather,it can be derived bfrom herethat ba disciple who takes leave of his teacher andthen bstays overnight in the same city must take leave of him an additional time,just as the Jewish people took leave of Solomon an additional time on the day after the Festival, on the twenty-third of Tishrei.,Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai bsaid to his son: Thesetwo bpeople,Rabbi Yonatan ben Asmai and Rabbi Yehuda, son of converts, bare men ofnoble bform [ itzura /i]i.e., wise and learned individuals; bgo to them so that they will bless you. He wentand bfound themdeep in discussion, braisingapparent bcontradictions between versesas follows: bIt is written: “Make level the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established”(Proverbs 4:26), indicating that when one has the opportunity to perform more than one mitzva, he must evaluate which of them is most important. bAndelsewhere bit is written: “Lest you level out the path of life,”(Proverbs 5:6), indicating that one must perform each mitzva as the opportunity arises, without considering its relative importance.,They explained that it is bnot difficult: Here,in the first verse cited above, it is discussing ba mitzva that can be done by others,and therefore one must consider what is most worthwhile for him to perform himself and what he will leave to others.
