Hebrew Bible, Proverbs, 5


nanFor the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He maketh even all his paths.,Let them be only thine own, And not strangers’with thee.,And thou moan, when thine end cometh, When thy flesh and thy body are consumed,,But her end is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword.,My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding;,Why then wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, And embrace the bosom of an alien?,His own iniquities shall ensnare the wicked, And he shall be holden with the cords of his sin.,Let thy fountain be blessed; And have joy of the wife of thy youth.,And say: ‘How have I hated instruction, And my heart despised reproof;,I was well nigh in all evil In the midst of the congregation and assembly.’,Drink waters out of thine own cistern, And running waters out of thine own well.,Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on the nether-world;,Neither have I hearkened to the voice of my teachers, Nor inclined mine ear to them that instructed me!,For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil;,Now therefore, O ye children, hearken unto me, And depart not from the words of my mouth.,Remove thy way far from her, And come not nigh the door of her house;,He shall die for lack of instruction; And in the greatness of his folly he shall reel.,A lovely hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy thee at all times; With her love be thou ravished always.,Lest thou give thy vigour unto others, And thy years unto the cruel;,Lest strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labours be in the house of an alien;,Let thy springs be dispersed abroad, And courses of water in the streets.,That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge.,Lest she should walk the even path of life, Her ways wander, but she knoweth it not.

And Aaron said: ‘Let not the anger of my lord wax hot; thou knowest the people, that they are set on evil." 32.23.

And I will not have compassion upon her children; For they are children of harlotry." 2.7. For their mother hath played the harlot, She that conceived them hath done shamefully; For she said: ‘I will go after my lovers, That give me my bread and my water, My wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink.’" 2.9. And she shall run after her lovers, but she shall not overtake them, And she shall seek them, but shall not find them; Then shall she say: ‘I will go and return to my first husband; For then was it better with me than now.’" 2.11. Therefore will I take back My corn in the time thereof, And My wine in the season thereof, And will snatch away My wool and My flax Given to cover her nakedness." 2.12. And now will I uncover her shame in the sight of her lovers, And none shall deliver her out of My hand." 2.13. I will also cause all her mirth to cease, Her feasts, her new moons, and her sabbaths, And all her appointed seasons." 2.14. And I will lay waste her vines and her fig-trees, Whereof she hath said: ‘These are my hire That my lovers have given me’; And I will make them a forest, And the beasts of the field shall eat them." 2.15. And I will visit upon her the days of the Baalim, Wherein she offered unto them, And decked herself with her ear-rings and her jewels, And went after her lovers, And forgot Me, saith the LORD." 2.16. Therefore, behold, I will allure her, And bring her into the wilderness, And speak tenderly unto her." 2.17. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, And the valley of Achor for a door of hope; And she shall respond there, as in the days of her youth, And as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt." 2.18. And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, That thou shalt call Me Ishi, And shalt call Me no more Baali." 2.19. For I will take away the names of the Baalim out of her mouth, And they shall no more be mentioned by their name." 2.20. And in that day will I make a covet for them With the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven, And with the creeping things of the ground; And I will break the bow and the sword and the battle out of the land, And will make them to lie down safely." 2.21. And I will betroth thee unto Me for ever; Yea, I will betroth thee unto Me in righteousness, and in justice, And in lovingkindness, and in compassion." 2.22. And I will betroth thee unto Me in faithfulness; And thou shalt know the LORD." 2.23. And it shall come to pass in that day, I will respond, saith the LORD, I will respond to the heavens, And they shall respond to the earth;" 2.24. And the earth shall respond to the corn, and the wine, and the oil; And they shall respond to Jezreel." 2.25. And I will sow her unto Me in the land; And I will have compassion upon her that had not obtained compassion; And I will say to them that were not My people: ‘Thou art My people’; And they shall say: ‘Thou art my God.’"

9.9. רְאֵה חַיִּים עִם־אִשָּׁה אֲשֶׁר־אָהַבְתָּ כָּל־יְמֵי חַיֵּי הֶבְלֶךָ אֲשֶׁר נָתַן־לְךָ תַּחַת הַשֶּׁמֶשׁ כֹּל יְמֵי הֶבְלֶךָ כִּי הוּא חֶלְקְךָ בַּחַיִּים וּבַעֲמָלְךָ אֲשֶׁר־אַתָּה עָמֵל תַּחַת הַשָּׁמֶשׁ׃ 9.9. Enjoy life with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which He hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity; for that is thy portion in life, and in thy labour wherein thou labourest under the sun."
14. Plato, Laches, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

194d. Nic. I have often heard you say that every man is good in that wherein he is wise, and bad in that wherein he is unlearned. Soc. Well, that is true, Nicias, I must say. Nic. And hence, if the brave man is good, clearly he must be wise. Soc. Do you hear him, Laches? Lach. I do, without understanding very well what he says. Soc. But I think I understand it: our friend appears to me to mean that courage is a kind of wisdom. Lach. What kind of wisdom, Socrates?
15. Plato, Timaeus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

32c. and out of these materials, such in kind and four in number, the body of the Cosmos was harmonized by proportion and brought into existence. These conditions secured for it Amity, so that being united in identity with itself it became indissoluble by any agent other than Him who had bound it together.
16. Anon., 1 Enoch, 42 (3rd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

42. Wisdom found no place where she might dwell; Then a dwelling-place was assigned her in the heavens.",Wisdom went forth to make her dwelling among the children of men, And found no dwelling-place:Wisdom returned to her place, And took her seat among the angels.,And unrighteousness went forth from her chambers: Whom she sought not she found, And dwelt with them,As rain in a desert And dew on a thirsty land.

19. Septuagint, Ecclesiasticus (Siracides), 1.1, 4.11-4.19, 6.18-6.37, 15.2-15.3, 24.25-24.29, 51.3, 51.13-51.30 (2nd cent. BCE - 2nd cent. BCE)

1.1. All wisdom comes from the Lord and is with him for ever. 1.1. The fear of the Lord delights the heart,and gives gladness and joy and long life. 4.11. Wisdom exalts her sons and gives help to those who seek her. 4.12. Whoever loves her loves life,and those who seek her early will be filled with joy. 4.13. Whoever holds her fast will obtain glory,and the Lord will bless the place she enters. 4.14. Those who serve her will minister to the Holy One;the Lord loves those who love her. 4.15. He who obeys her will judge the nations,and whoever gives heed to her will dwell secure. 4.16. If he has faith in her he will obtain her;and his descendants will remain in possession of her. 4.17. For at first she will walk with him on tortuous paths,she will bring fear and cowardice upon him,and will torment him by her discipline until she trusts him,and she will test him with her ordices. 4.18. Then she will come straight back to him and gladden him,and will reveal her secrets to him. 4.19. If he goes astray she will forsake him,and hand him over to his ruin. 15.2. She will come to meet him like a mother,and like the wife of his youth she will welcome him. 15.2. He has not commanded any one to be ungodly,and he has not given any one permission to sin. 15.3. She will feed him with the bread of understanding,and give him the water of wisdom to drink. 24.25. It fills men with wisdom, like the Pishon,and like the Tigris at the time of the first fruits. 24.26. It makes them full of understanding, like the Euphrates,and like the Jordan at harvest time. 24.27. It makes instruction shine forth like light,like the Gihon at the time of vintage. 24.28. Just as the first man did not know her perfectly,the last one has not fathomed her; 24.29. for her thought is more abundant than the sea,and her counsel deeper than the great abyss. 51.3. and didst deliver me,in the greatness of thy mercy and of thy name,from the gnashings of teeth about to devour me,from the hand of those who sought my life,from the many afflictions that I endured 51.3. Do your work before the appointed time,and in Gods time he will give you your reward. 51.13. While I was still young, before I went on my travels,I sought wisdom openly in my prayer. 51.14. Before the temple I asked for her,and I will search for her to the last. 51.15. From blossom to ripening grape my heart delighted in her;my foot entered upon the straight path;from my youth I followed her steps. 51.16. I inclined my ear a little and received her,and I found for myself much instruction. 51.17. I made progress therein;to him who gives wisdom I will give glory. 51.18. For I resolved to live according to wisdom,and I was zealous for the good;and I shall never be put to shame. 51.19. My soul grappled with wisdom,and in my conduct I was strict;I spread out my hands to the heavens,and lamented my ignorance of her. 51.21. My heart was stirred to seek her,therefore I have gained a good possession. 51.22. The Lord gave me a tongue as my reward,and I will praise him with it. 51.23. Draw near to me, you who are untaught,and lodge in my school. 51.24. Why do you say you are lacking in these things,and why are your souls very thirsty? 51.25. I opened my mouth and said,Get these things for yourselves without money. 51.26. Put your neck under the yoke,and let your souls receive instruction;it is to be found close by. 51.27. See with your eyes that I have labored little and found myself much rest. 51.28. Get instruction with a large sum of silver,and you will gain by it much gold. 51.29. May your soul rejoice in his mercy,and may you not be put to shame when you praise him.
20. Septuagint, Judith, 9.10, 11.7, 11.10, 11.12-11.13, 11.17 (2nd cent. BCE - 0th cent. CE)

9.10. By the deceit of my lips strike down the slave with the prince and the prince with his servant; crush their arrogance by the hand of a woman. 11.7. Nebuchadnezzar the king of the whole earth lives, and as his power endures, who had sent you to direct every living soul, not only do men serve him because of you, but also the beasts of the field and the cattle and the birds of the air will live by your power under Nebuchadnezzar and all his house. 11.10. Therefore, my lord and master, do not disregard what he said, but keep it in your mind, for it is true: our nation cannot be punished, nor can the sword prevail against them, unless they sin against their God. 11.12. Since their food supply is exhausted and their water has almost given out, they have planned to kill their cattle and have determined to use all that God by his laws has forbidden them to eat. 11.13. They have decided to consume the first fruits of the grain and the tithes of the wine and oil, which they had consecrated and set aside for the priests who minister in the presence of our God at Jerusalem -- although it is not lawful for any of the people so much as to touch these things with their hands. 11.17. For your servant is religious, and serves the God of heaven day and night; therefore, my lord, I will remain with you, and every night your servant will go out into the valley, and I will pray to God and he will tell me when they have committed their sins.
21. Septuagint, Wisdom of Solomon, 1.14, 2.10, 2.22, 3.4, 4.1, 6.12, 6.14, 6.17-6.19, 6.23, 7.1, 7.7, 7.17, 7.24, 7.28, 8.1-8.4, 8.9, 8.13, 8.16-8.18, 8.21, 9.1, 9.4, 9.9, 9.18, 15.3, 15.13, 39.4-39.5 (2nd cent. BCE - 1st cent. BCE)

1.14. For he created all things that they might exist,and the generative forces of the world are wholesome,and there is no destructive poison in them;and the dominion of Hades is not on earth. 2.10. Let us oppress the righteous poor man;let us not spare the widow nor regard the gray hairs of the aged. 2.22. and they did not know the secret purposes of God,nor hope for the wages of holiness,nor discern the prize for blameless souls; 3.4. For though in the sight of men they were punished,their hope is full of immortality. 4.1. Better than this is childlessness with virtue,for in the memory of virtue is immortality,because it is known both by God and by men. 6.12. Wisdom is radiant and unfading,and she is easily discerned by those who love her,and is found by those who seek her. 6.14. He who rises early to seek her will have no difficulty,for he will find her sitting at his gates. 6.17. The beginning of wisdom is the most sincere desire for instruction,and concern for instruction is love of her 6.18. and love of her is the keeping of her laws,and giving heed to her laws is assurance of immortality 6.19. and immortality brings one near to God; 6.23. neither will I travel in the company of sickly envy,for envy does not associate with wisdom. 7.1. I also am mortal, like all men,a descendant of the first-formed child of earth;and in the womb of a mother I was molded into flesh 7.7. Therefore I prayed, and understanding was given me;I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. 7.17. For it is he who gave me unerring knowledge of what exists,to know the structure of the world and the activity of the elements; 7.24. For wisdom is more mobile than any motion;because of her pureness she pervades and penetrates all things. 7.28. for God loves nothing so much as the man who lives with wisdom. 8.1. She reaches mightily from one end of the earth to the other,and she orders all things well. 8.2. I loved her and sought her from my youth,and I desired to take her for my bride,and I became enamored of her beauty. 8.3. She glorifies her noble birth by living with God,and the Lord of all loves her. 8.4. For she is an initiate in the knowledge of God,and an associate in his works. 8.9. Therefore I determined to take her to live with me,knowing that she would give me good counsel and encouragement in cares and grief. 8.13. Because of her I shall have immortality,and leave an everlasting remembrance to those who come after me. 8.16. When I enter my house, I shall find rest with her,for companionship with her has no bitterness,and life with her has no pain, but gladness and joy. 8.17. When I considered these things inwardly,and thought upon them in my mind,that in kinship with wisdom there is immortality 8.18. and in friendship with her, pure delight,and in the labors of her hands, unfailing wealth,and in the experience of her company, understanding,and renown in sharing her words,I went about seeking how to get her for myself. 8.21. But I perceived that I would not possess wisdom unless God gave her to me -- and it was a mark of insight to know whose gift she was -- so I appealed to the Lord and besought him,and with my whole heart I said: 9.1. O God of my fathers and Lord of mercy,who hast made all things by thy word 9.4. give me the wisdom that sits by thy throne,and do not reject me from among thy servants. 9.9. With thee is wisdom, who knows thy works and was present when thou didst make the world,and who understand what is pleasing in thy sight and what is right according to thy commandments. 9.18. And thus the paths of those on earth were set right,and men were taught what pleases thee,and were saved by wisdom. 15.3. For to know thee is complete righteousness,and to know thy power is the root of immortality. 15.13. For this man, more than all others, knows that he sins when he makes from earthy matter fragile vessels and graven images.
22. Philo of Alexandria, On The Eternity of The World, 25 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

25. And there are testimonies also in the Timaeus to the fact of the world being exempt from disease and not liable to destruction, such as these: "Accordingly, of the four elements the constitution of the world receives each in all its integrity; for he who compounded it made it to consist of the whole of fire, and the whole of water, and the whole of air, and the whole of earth, not leaving any portion or any power of any one of them outside, from the following intentions:--
23. Philo of Alexandria, On The Cherubim, 127 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

127. And for what reason is it built, except to serve as a shelter and protection? This is the object. Now passing on from these particular buildings, consider the greatest house or city, namely, this world, for you will find that God is the cause of it, by whom it was made. That the materials are the four elements, of which it is composed; that the instrument is the word of God, by means of which it was made; and the object of the building you will find to be the display of the goodness of the Creator. This is the discriminating opinion of men fond of truth, who desire to attain to true and sound knowledge; but they who say that they have gotten anything by means of God, conceive that the cause is the instrument, the Creator namely, and the instrument the cause, namely, the human mind. 127. And if their connections and families are very numerous, then by reason of their intermarriages and the mutual connections formed with different houses the iniquity and injury will proceed and infect the whole city all around.
24. Philo of Alexandria, On The Virtues, 178-179, 186, 177 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

177. For absolutely never to do anything wrong at all is a peculiar attribute of God, and perhaps one may also say of a God-like man. But when one has erred, then to change so as to adopt a blameless course of life for the future is the part of a wise man, and of one who is not altogether ignorant of what is expedient.
25. Philo of Alexandria, On The Contemplative Life, 4, 3 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

3. with whom, however, who is there of those who profess piety that we can possibly compare? Can we compare those who honour the elements, earth, water, air, and fire? to whom different nations have given different names, calling fire Hephaestus, I imagine because of its kindling, and the air Hera, I imagine because of its being raised up, and raised aloft to a great height, and water Poseidon, probably because of its being drinkable, and the earth Demeter, because it appears to be the Mother of all plants and of all animals.
26. Philo of Alexandria, Who Is The Heir, 314 (1st cent. BCE - 1st cent. CE)

314. But what land does he mean but that which has been already mentioned, to which he is now making reference? The fruit of which is the safe and most certain comprehension of the wisdom of God, according to which it preserves for its dividers all the good things which exist without any admixture or taint of evil, as if they had been incorruptible from their very beginning.
27. New Testament, 1 Corinthians, 15, 2-4, 8, 1 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

28. New Testament, Colossians, 2.8, 2.20 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

2.8. Be careful that you don't let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ. 2.20. If you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordices
29. New Testament, Ephesians, 5.21-5.33 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

5.21. subjecting yourselves one to another in the fear of Christ. 5.22. Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 5.23. For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. 5.24. But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything. 5.25. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; 5.26. that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word 5.27. that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 5.28. Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself. 5.29. For no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, even as the Lord also does the assembly; 5.30. because we are members of his body, of his flesh and bones. 5.31. For this cause a man will leave his father and mother, and will be joined to his wife. The two will become one flesh. 5.32. This mystery is great, but I speak concerning Christ and of the assembly. 5.33. Nevertheless each of you must also love his own wife even as himself; and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
30. New Testament, Galatians, 4.3, 4.9 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

4.3. So we also, when we were children, were held in bondage under theelements of the world. 4.9. But now thatyou have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, why do youturn back again to the weak and miserable elements, to which you desireto be in bondage all over again?
31. New Testament, John, 1.1-1.18 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

1.1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 1.2. The same was in the beginning with God. 1.3. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. 1.4. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 1.5. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn't overcome it. 1.6. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. 1.7. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. 1.8. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. 1.9. The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world. 1.10. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn't recognize him. 1.11. He came to his own, and those who were his own didn't receive him. 1.12. But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God's children, to those who believe in his name: 1.13. who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 1.14. The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. 1.15. John testified about him. He cried out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.' 1.16. From his fullness we all received grace upon grace. 1.17. For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 1.18. No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.

One who seesa man named bHuna in a dream,it is a sign that ba miracle will be performed for him,because the letter inunin the name Huna represents the word ines /i, miracle. One who sees a man named bḤanina, Ḥaya, or Yoḥa,it is a sign that bmany miracles will be performed for him,since the letter inunappears twice in those names. One who sees ba eulogy in a dream,it is a sign that bthe heavens had mercy upon him, and spared himfrom a divine death sentence and there will be no need to eulogize him in reality. The Gemara restricts this statement and says that bthis only appliesif he saw the eulogy bwrittenand not yet delivered., bOne who answersin a dream: bMay His great name be blessedfrom ikaddish bis assured that he is onewho has a place in bthe World-to-Come. Onewho sees himself breciting iShema /iin a dream bis worthy of having the Divine Presence rest upon him, but his generation is unworthy,and, therefore, the Divine Presence does not actually rest upon him., bOne whosees himself bdon phylacteries in a dream should anticipate greatness, as it is stated: “And all the peoples of the earth shall see that the name of the Lord is called upon you;and they shall be afraid of you” (Deuteronomy 28:10). bAnd it was taughtin a ibaraitathat bRabbi Eliezer the Great says: That the Name of the Lord is called upon you, refers to phylacteries of the head,as they represent God’s name upon man. bOne whosees himself bpray in a dream,it is ban auspicious omen.However, the Gemara adds a caveat and says: bThis only appliesin a case where he saw in the dream that he bhad notyet bfinishedhis prayer and is therefore still close to God. If, in the dream, he had already finished his prayer, it is not an omen., bOne whosees that bhe had relations with his mother [ iem /i] in a dream, he should anticipateattaining bunderstanding, as it is stated: “Yea if [ iim /i] you call for understanding”(Proverbs 2:3), and in this homiletic interpretation iimis considered to be the equivalent of iem /i. bOne whosees that he bhad relations with a betrothed young womanin a dream, bhe should anticipate Torah, as it is stated: “Moses commanded us Torah, an inheritance [ imorasha /i] of the congregation of Jacob”(Deuteronomy 33:4). bDo not readit as imorasha /i; rather,read it as ime’orasa /i, betrothed. One whosees that he bhad relations with his sister in a dream, should anticipate wisdom, as it is stated: “Say unto wisdom: You are my sister”(Proverbs 7:4). bOne whosees that bhe had relations with a married woman in a dream is assured that he is onewho has a place in bthe World-to-Come.He receives his place as well as that of another person in the Garden of Eden, as the married woman represents a portion belonging to someone else. However, the Gemara adds a caveat and says: bThis only appliesin a case where bhe did not know her and was not thinking about her that evening;rather, he saw an unidentified woman in his dream by chance., bRabbi Ḥiyya bar Abba said: One who sees wheat in a dream has seen peace, as it is stated: “He makes your borders peace; He gives you in plenty the fat of wheat”(Psalms 147:14). And bone who sees barley [ ise’orim /i] in a dreamhas received a sign that bhis iniquities are taken away, as it is stated: “And your iniquity is taken away [ ivesar avonekh /i], and your sin expiated”(Isaiah 6:7); ise’orimis an acronym for isar avon /i. bRabbi Zeira said: I did not ascend from Babylonia to Eretz Yisrael until I saw barley in my dream. /b, bOne who sees a vine ladenwith grapes bin a dream,it is an omen that bhis wife will not miscarry, as it is stated: “Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine,in the innermost parts of your house” (Psalms 128:3). One who sees baplanted bvine branchin a dream bshould anticipate the Messiah, as it is stated: “Binding his foal unto the vine and his donkey’s colt unto the vine branch”(Genesis 49:11)., bOne who sees a fig tree in a dream,it is a sign that bhis Torah is preserved within him, as it is stated: “One who keeps the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof”(Proverbs 27:18). bOne who sees pomegranates in a dream,if they were bsmall, his business will flourish like the seeds ofthe bpomegranate,which are numerous; and if they were blarge, his business will increase like a pomegranate.One who saw bslices of pomegranatesin his dream, bif he is a Torah scholar, he should anticipate Torah, as it is stated: “I would cause you to drink of spiced wine, of the juice of my pomegranate”(Song of Songs 8:2), which is traditionally understood as an allusion to Torah. bAnd ifthe dreamer bis an ignoramus, he should anticipate mitzvot,as it is stated: b“Your temples are like a split pomegranate”(Song of Songs 4:3). As the Gemara previously interpreted homiletically: bWhat isthe meaning of the word b“Your temples [ irakatekh /i]”? Even the most ignorant [ ireikanin /i] among you,Israel, bare full of mitzvot like a pomegranate. /b, bOne who sees olives in a dream,and they were bsmall,it is a sign that bhis business will flourish, increase and be durable like olives.However, the Gemara adds a caveat, saying that bthis applies onlywhen he sees the bfruitof an olive tree; bbut,one who sees olive btrees,it is a sign that bhe will have many children, as it is stated: “Your children like olive plants,round about your table” (Psalms 128:3). bSome say that one who sees an olive tree in a dream,it is a sign that ba good reputation will spread for him, as it is stated:“The Lord called your name ba leafy olive tree, fair with goodly fruit”(Jeremiah 11:16). bOne who sees olive oil in a dream should anticipate the light of Torah, as it is stated: “That they bring unto you pure olive oilbeaten for the light” (Exodus 27:20). bOne who sees palm trees [ itemarim /i] in a dreamhas seen a sign that bhis transgressions have ceased, as it is stated: “Your iniquity is finished, O daughter of Zion”(Lamentations 4:22), as the Gemara likens itemara /i, date, to itam ra /i, evil has ceased., bRav Yosef says: One who sees a goat in a dream,it is a sign that bhis year will be blessed;one who sees bgoats, his years will be blessed, as it is stated: “And there will be goats’ milk enough for your food,for the food of your household; and sustece for your maidens” (Proverbs 27:27). bOne who sees myrtle in a dream,it is a sign that bhis property will be successful. And if he does notown bproperty,it is a sign that bhe will receive an inheritance. Ulla said, and some say it was taught in a ibaraita /i: Thisapplies exclusively to a case bwhere he sawthem bon their stem. One who sees a citron [ ietrog /i] in a dreamhas seen a sign that bhe is honored [ ihadur /i] before his Creator, as it is statedwith regard to the citron: b“The fruit of goodly trees [ ihadar /i], branches of palm trees”(Leviticus 23:40). bOne who sees a palm branch [ ilulav /i] in a dream,it is a sign that bhe has but one heart for his Father in heaven. iLulavis interpreted homiletically as ilo lev /i, he has a heart., bOne who sees a goose in a dream should anticipate wisdom, as it is stated: “Wisdoms cry aloud in the streets,she utters her voice in the broad places” (Proverbs 1:20); geese tend to sound their voices. One who dreams that bhe has relations withthe goose bwill become head of the yeshiva. Rav Ashi said: I sawa goose and bhad relations with itin my dream band I ascended to greatnessand became head of the yeshiva., bOne who sees a rooster in a dreamshould anticipate ba male child.One who sees multiple broosters should expect male children.One who sees ba hen [ itarnegolet /i] should anticipate a beautiful garden andreason to brejoice [ itarbitza na’a vegila /i],as itarnegoletis interpreted as an acronym for itarbitza na’a vegila /i. bOne who sees eggs in a dream,it is a sign that bhis request is pending,as egg in Aramaic is ibeya /i, which is similar to the term for request. If one saw that the eggs bbroke,it is a sign that bhis requesthas already been bgranted,as that which was hidden inside the shell was revealed. bThe same is true of nuts, and the same is true of cucumbers, and the same is true of all glass vessels, and the same is true of anything similarly fragilethat broke in his dream, it is a sign that his request was granted., bOnewho dreams that bhe entered a city,it is a sign that bhis desires will be fulfilled, as it is stated: “And He led them unto their desired haven”(Psalms 107:30). bOne who shaves his head in a dream, it is a good omen for him,as the removal of undesired hairs is a sign of renewal and greatness. If he bshaved his head and his beardin a dream, it is a good omen bfor him and his entire family. /b, bOne who sits in a small boatin a dream, it is a sign that ba good reputation will spread for him.If he sees himself sitting bin a large boatin a dream, ba good reputation will spread for him and his entire family.The Gemara notes that bthis only applieswhere bthe boat was floating highon the waves., bOne who defecatesin a dream, bit is a good omen for him, as it is stated: “He that is bent down shall speedily be loosed;and he shall not go down dying into the pit, neither shall his bread fail” (Isaiah 51:14). The Gemara notes that bthis only applieswhere bhe does not wipeand get his hands dirty., bOne who climbs up to the roof in a dream,it is a sign that bhe will ascend to greatness.If, after he climbed up, bhe climbedback bdown,it is a sign that he bwill descend fromthe bgreatness heachieved. bAbaye and Rava both said: Once one ascendedto the roof in his dream, bhe ascended,and even if he dreams that he descended, it remains a good omen for him. bOne who rips his clothing in a dream,it is a sign that they brip up his sentence. One who stands naked in Babylonia in a dream,it is a sign that bhe stands free of transgression.Although living outside Israel is itself a transgression, his nakedness symbolizes that he has been absolved of that sin. If one dreamed that he stood naked bin Eretz Yisrael,it is a sign that he is bnaked without mitzvot. Onewho dreams that bhe was apprehendedand guarded bby a soldier [ isardeyot /i],it is a sign that bprotection was provided himby heaven. If he sees that bhe is wearing a neck chain [ ikolar /i],it is a sign that bthey have increased his level of protection.However, the Gemara notes that bthis only appliesto a case where his neck was placed bin a neck chain; ifhis neck was bsimplyplaced in ba noose, it does notindicate heavenly protection., bOne who enters a marsh in a dream,it is a sign that bhe will become head of a yeshiva,as he appears to be standing alone with all the bulrushes, large and small, surrounding him like the head of a yeshiva, around whom all the students gather. One who dreams that he entered ba forestand sees only large trees around him, it is a sign that he bwill be made head ofonly bthe advanced students [ ikalla /i],where he will explain the lessons only to the outstanding students in the yeshiva, each of whom is himself a great tree, set apart from the others.,The Gemara relates: bRav Pappa and Rav Huna, son of Rav Yehoshua,each bsaw a dream: Rav Pappa,who saw bthat he entered a marshin his dream, bwas appointed head of a yeshiva. Rav Huna, son of Rav Yehoshua,who saw bthat he entered a forestin his dream, bwas appointed head of the advanced students. Some say that both of themdreamed that bthey entered a marsh,but bRav Pappa,who dreamed bthat a drum hungfrom his neck, bwas appointed head of the yeshiva,as banging a drum symbolizes the head of a yeshiva who sounds his voice in public. bRav Huna, son of Rav Yehoshua,who bdid notdream bthat a drum hung aroundhis neck, bwasonly bappointed head of the advanced students. Rav Ashi said: Idreamed that bI entered a marsh and hung a drum and beat it,and Rav Ashi became head of the yeshiva.,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak taught: One who lets blood in a dream,it is a sign that bhis transgressions have been forgiven,because red, the color of blood, is a metaphor for sin: “Though your sins be as scarlet…though they be red like crimson” (Isaiah 1:18). Consequently, bloodletting can symbolize transgressions leaving him.,The Gemara asks: bWas it not taughtin a ibaraita /i: One who sees that he is letting-blood in a dream, it is a sign that bhis transgressions are enumerated before him?The Gemara answers: bWhatis meant by benumerated?This means that they are benumerated to be forgiven. /b,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rav Sheshet taught: One who sees a snake in a dream,it is a sign that bhis livelihood is accessible to himjust as dust is readily accessible to a snake. If one saw that the snake bbit himin his dream, it is a sign that his livelihood bwill double.If bhe killedthe snake, it is a sign that bhe will lose his livelihood. Rav Sheshet said tothe itanna /i: On the contrary, if one dreamed that he killed the snake it is a sign that ball the more so his livelihood will double.The Gemara remarks: bBut that is not so. Rav Sheshet saw a snake in his dream and killed it,so he sought to interpret his dream positively.,The itanna /iwho recited imishnayot bbefore Rabbi Yoḥa taught: One who sees any kind of drink in a dream it isa bgoodomen, bexcept for wine,as bthere isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bgoodomen bfor him, and there isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bbadomen bfor him.The Gemara elaborates: bThere isone bwho drinkswine band it isa bgoodomen bfor him, as it is stated: “And wine that makes glad the heart of man”(Psalms 104:15), band there isone bwho drinks itin a dream band it isa bbadomen bfor him, as it is stated: “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish and wine unto the bitter in soul”(Proverbs 31:6)., bRabbi Yoḥa said to the itanna: /iYou should bteachthat for ba Torah scholar,a dream of wine is balwaysa bgoodomen, bas it is stated: “Come, eat of my bread and drink of the wine which I have mingled”(Proverbs 9:5).
