"And Thou didst divide the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; and their pursuers Thou didst cast into the depths, as a stone into the mighty waters.", 9.12. "Moreover in a pillar of cloud Thou didst lead them by day; and in a pillar of fire by night, to give them light in the way wherein they should go.", 9.13.

"and refused to hearken, neither were mindful of Thy wonders that Thou didst among them; but hardened their neck, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage; but Thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy, and forsookest them not.", 9.18. "Yea, when they had made them a molten calf, and said: ‘This is thy God that brought thee up out of Egypt, and had wrought great provocations;", 9.19.

"Thou gavest also Thy good spirit to instruct them, and withheldest not Thy manna from their mouth, and gavest them water for their thirst.", 9.21. "Yea, forty years didst Thou sustain them in the wilderness, and they lacked nothing; their clothes waxed not old, and their feet swelled not.", 9.22. "Moreover Thou gavest them kingdoms and peoples, which Thou didst allot quarter by quarter; so they possessed the land of Sihon, even the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og king of Bashan.", 9.23. "Their children also didst Thou multiply as the stars of heaven, and didst bring them into the land, concerning which Thou didst say to their fathers, that they should go in to possess it.", 9.24. "So the children went in and possessed the land, and Thou didst subdue before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and gavest them into their hands, with their kings, and the peoples of the land, that they might do with them as they would.", 9.25. "And they took fortified cities, and a fat land, and possessed houses full of all good things, cisterns hewn out, vineyards, and oliveyards, and fruit-trees in abundance; so they did eat, and were filled, and became fat, and luxuriated in Thy great goodness.", 9.26. "Nevertheless they were disobedient, and rebelled against Thee, and cast Thy law behind their back, and slew Thy prophets that did forewarn them to turn them back unto Thee, and they wrought great provocations.", 9.27. "Therefore Thou didst deliver them into the hand of their adversaries, who distressed them; and in the time of their trouble, when they cried unto Thee, Thou heardest from heaven; and according to Thy manifold mercies Thou gavest them saviours who might save them out of the hand of their adversaries.", 9.28. "But after they had rest, they did evil again before Thee; therefore didst Thou leave them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them; yet when they returned, and cried unto Thee, many times didst Thou hear from heaven, and deliver them according to Thy mercies;", 9.29. "and didst forewarn them, that Thou mightest bring them back unto Thy law; yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto Thy commandments, but sinned against Thine ordices, which if a man do, he shall live by them, and presented a stubborn shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.", 9.30. "Yet many years didst Thou extend mercy unto them, and didst forewarn them by Thy spirit through Thy prophets; yet would they not give ear; therefore gavest Thou them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.", 9.31. "Nevertheless in Thy manifold mercies Thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them; for Thou art a gracious and merciful God.", 9.32. "Now therefore, our God, the great, the mighty, and the awful God, who keepest covet and mercy, let not all the travail seem little before Thee, that hath come upon us, on our kings, on our princes, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all Thy people, since the time of the kings of Assyria unto this day.", 9.33. "Howbeit Thou art just in all that is come upon us; for Thou hast dealt truly, but we have done wickedly;", 9.34. "neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept Thy law, nor hearkened unto Thy commandments and Thy testimonies, wherewith Thou didst testify against them.", 9.35. "For they have not served Thee in their kingdom, and in Thy great goodness that Thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which Thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.", 9.36. "Behold, we are servants this day, and as for the land that Thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it.", 9.37. "And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom Thou hast set over us because of our sins; also they have power over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.’",

15.30. And the man who was ever in body and soul the defender of his fellow citizens, the man who maintained his youthful good will toward his countrymen, ordered them to cut off Nicanor's head and arm and carry them to Jerusalem.' 15.31. And when he arrived there and had called his countrymen together and stationed the priests before the altar, he sent for those who were in the citadel.' 15.32. He showed them the vile Nicanor's head and that profane man's arm, which had been boastfully stretched out against the holy house of the Almighty;' 15.33. and he cut out the tongue of the ungodly Nicanor and said that he would give it piecemeal to the birds and hang up these rewards of his folly opposite the sanctuary."

4.36. Then said Judas and his brothers, "Behold, our enemies are crushed; let us go up to cleanse the sanctuary and dedicate it." 4.37. So all the army assembled and they went up to Mount Zion. 4.38. And they saw the sanctuary desolate, the altar profaned, and the gates burned. In the courts they saw bushes sprung up as in a thicket, or as on one of the mountains. They saw also the chambers of the priests in ruins. 4.39. Then they rent their clothes, and mourned with great lamentation, and sprinkled themselves with ashes. 4.40. They fell face down on the ground, and sounded the signal on the trumpets, and cried out to Heaven. 4.41. Then Judas detailed men to fight against those in the citadel until he had cleansed the sanctuary. 4.42. He chose blameless priests devoted to the law, 4.43. and they cleansed the sanctuary and removed the defiled stones to an unclean place. 4.44. They deliberated what to do about the altar of burnt offering, which had been profaned. 4.45. And they thought it best to tear it down, lest it bring reproach upon them, for the Gentiles had defiled it. So they tore down the altar, 4.46. and stored the stones in a convenient place on the temple hill until there should come a prophet to tell what to do with them. 4.47. Then they took unhewn stones, as the law directs, and built a new altar like the former one. 4.48. They also rebuilt the sanctuary and the interior of the temple, and consecrated the courts. 4.49. They made new holy vessels, and brought the lampstand, the altar of incense, and the table into the temple. 4.50. Then they burned incense on the altar and lighted the lamps on the lampstand, and these gave light in the temple. 4.51. They placed the bread on the table and hung up the curtains. Thus they finished all the work they had undertaken. 5.6. Then he crossed over to attack the Ammonites, where he found a strong band and many people with Timothy as their leader. 7.46. And men came out of all the villages of Judea round about, and they out-flanked the enemy and drove them back to their pursuers, so that they all fell by the sword; not even one of them was left. 7.47. Then the Jews seized the spoils and the plunder, and they cut off Nicanors head and the right hand which he so arrogantly stretched out, and brought them and displayed them just outside Jerusalem.

2.1. Then the high priest Simon, facing the sanctuary, bending his knees and extending his hands with calm dignity, prayed as follows: 2.2. "Lord, Lord, king of the heavens, and sovereign of all creation, holy among the holy ones, the only ruler, almighty, give attention to us who are suffering grievously from an impious and profane man, puffed up in his audacity and power. 2.3. For you, the creator of all things and the governor of all, are a just Ruler, and you judge those who have done anything in insolence and arrogance. 2.4. You destroyed those who in the past committed injustice, among whom were even giants who trusted in their strength and boldness, whom you destroyed by bringing upon them a boundless flood. 2.5. You consumed with fire and sulphur the men of Sodom who acted arrogantly, who were notorious for their vices; and you made them an example to those who should come afterward. 2.6. You made known your mighty power by inflicting many and varied punishments on the audacious Pharaoh who had enslaved your holy people Israel. 2.7. And when he pursued them with chariots and a mass of troops, you overwhelmed him in the depths of the sea, but carried through safely those who had put their confidence in you, the Ruler over the whole creation. 2.8. And when they had seen works of your hands, they praised you, the Almighty. 2.9. You, O King, when you had created the boundless and immeasurable earth, chose this city and sanctified this place for your name, though you have no need of anything; and when you had glorified it by your magnificent manifestation, you made it a firm foundation for the glory of your great and honored name. 2.10. And because you love the house of Israel, you promised that if we should have reverses, and tribulation should overtake us, you would listen to our petition when we come to this place and pray. 2.11. And indeed you are faithful and true. 2.12. And because oftentimes when our fathers were oppressed you helped them in their humiliation, and rescued them from great evils, 2.13. see now, O holy King, that because of our many and great sins we are crushed with suffering, subjected to our enemies, and overtaken by helplessness. 2.14. In our downfall this audacious and profane man undertakes to violate the holy place on earth dedicated to your glorious name. 2.15. For your dwelling, the heaven of heavens, is unapproachable by man. 2.16. But because you graciously bestowed your glory upon your people Israel, you sanctified this place. 2.17. Do not punish us for the defilement committed by these men, or call us to account for this profanation, lest the transgressors boast in their wrath or exult in the arrogance of their tongue, saying, 2.18. `We have trampled down the house of the sanctuary as offensive houses are trampled down.' 2.19. Wipe away our sins and disperse our errors, and reveal your mercy at this hour. 2.20. Speedily let your mercies overtake us, and put praises in the mouth of those who are downcast and broken in spirit, and give us peace."

But /b if she performs i ḥalitza /i when he is wearing b a shoe /b that is so b torn that it does not cover most of the foot; or using a broken sandal that does not hold most of the foot; or using a hand blanket /b that the amputee wears on his hands, similar to a leather shoe, in order to drag himself using them; b or using a soft shoe [ i anpileya /i ] /b made b of cloth; or /b a woman b who performs i halitza /i with /b a i yavam /i who is b a minor; /b in all these cases b her i ḥalitza /i is disqualified. /b ,The Gemara comments: b Who is /b the i tanna /i who holds that b an amputee’s prosthetic /b is considered a shoe? b It is Rabbi Meir, as we learned /b in a mishna ( i Shabbat /i 65b): b One with an amputated leg may go out /b on Shabbat b with his wooden leg, /b as it has the legal status of a shoe; this is b the statement of Rabbi Meir. /b He reasons that the prosthesis functions like the shoe of any other person, indicating that Rabbi Meir is not especially concerned about the material from which the shoe is made. And b Rabbi Yosei, /b on the other hand, b prohibits /b the amputee from going out on Shabbat with his wooden leg, as he does not consider it a shoe that is being worn, but rather a wooden object that is being carried.,The Gemara asks how Rabbi Meir can be the i tanna /i of the i baraita /i , as the continuation of the i baraita /i states i ḥalitza /i is disqualified if performed b with an i anpileya /i /b made b of cloth, /b as this cloth shoe is not to be considered a shoe. If so, have b we come to /b the opinion of b the Rabbis, /b who rule in accordance with Rabbi Yosei, and render it prohibited to use any shoes for i ḥalitza /i that are not made of leather?,In an attempt to resolve the contradiction b Abaye said: Since the latter clause /b of the i baraita /i b is /b in accordance with b the Rabbis, /b who rule like Rabbi Yosei, b the first clause is also /b in accordance with b the Rabbis. And /b therefore b the first clause, /b which permits the amputee’s prosthesis, is b referring to /b a prosthetic foot b covered in leather, /b as it constitutes a shoe due to its leather exterior., b Rava said to him: But /b according to your explanation, if the prosthesis is b not covered in leather, what /b would its status be? It would be b unfit. If so, rather than teaching /b in the b latter clause: i Anpileya /i /b made b of cloth /b is invalid for i ḥalitza /i , b let /b it b distinguish within /b the matter b itself /b and say: b In what /b case b is this statement /b that a wooden prosthesis is fit b said? /b It is b in /b the case of a prosthetic leg b covered in leather, but /b if it is b not covered in leather, it is unfit. /b , b Rather, /b the fact that the i baraita /i was not taught in that manner indicates that Abaye’s explanation is incorrect. Therefore, b Rava said /b that the contradiction should be reconciled in another way: b Since the first clause /b of the i baraita /i is in accordance with the opinion of b Rabbi Meir, /b that the shoes need not be made of leather, b the latter clause is also /b taught in accordance with the opinion of b Rabbi Meir /b , and the distinction between a wooden prosthetic and an i anpileya /i of cloth is: b This /b prosthesis b protects /b the foot, b and that /b soft shoe b does not protect /b the foot, as it does not have a hard sole. Rabbi Meir does not require that the shoe be of leather, but he does require that it be protective footwear.,With regard to the statement in the i baraita /i that indicates that i ḥalitza /i may be performed even if the i yavam /i is not standing, b Ameimar said: The one who performs i ḥalitza /i /b by having his i yevama /i remove his shoe b must press his foot /b to the ground, and while in this position the i yevama /i will remove his shoe., b Rav Ashi said to Ameimar: But isn’t it taught /b in the i baraita /i above: She may perform i ḥalitza /i b whether he was standing or sitting or leaning? /b One who is leaning cannot easily press his foot into the ground. He answered him: b Say /b that the man may perform i ḥalitza /i while in any of these positions, but that b actually /b this is true only if b he presses his foot /b to the ground, which is admittedly more difficult to do while leaning., b And Ameimar /b also b said /b about this issue: b Someone who walks on the backs of his feet, /b meaning he is clubfooted and his foot is twisted upside down, b cannot perform i ḥalitza /i . Rav Ashi said to Ameimar: But isn’t it taught /b in a i baraita /i : b Leg supports /b can be used for i ḥalitza /i . b Does this not mean that /b this lame individual b performs i ḥalitza /i using these /b supports on his knees? This would indicate that even one with twisted feet can perform i ḥalitza /i . The Gemara answers: b No, /b the intention is that if b he gave these supports to another /b whose foot is shaped normally b and he /b wore them while b performing i ḥalitza /i , /b it is valid. That other one is allowed to perform i ḥalitza /i while wearing these supports because they are also considered shoes, but one whose foot is misshapen may not perform i ḥalitza /i with them, as it functions for him as a foot, not a shoe., b Rav Ashi said: According to what Ameimar said, bar Uva cannot perform i ḥalitza /i and bar Kipof cannot perform i ḥalitza /i , /b as these two, who were famous eulogizers in Rav Ashi’s generation, had feet that became so crooked that they were unable to walk normally.,It was taught in the mishna that if one’s leg was amputated b from the knee down /b and his i yevama /i performed i ḥalitza /i with him, the i ḥalitza /i is valid. The Gemara b raises a contradiction /b from a i baraita /i that comments on the pilgrimage one makes to Jerusalem during a Festival. The Torah states: “Three b Festivals [ i regalim /i ] /b you shall celebrate for Me in the year” (Exodus 23:14). The i baraita /i comments on the verse: Festivals are referred to in the verse as i regalim /i , which literally means feet, indicating that one must actually make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem by foot [ i regel /i ] during the Festival, which comes to b exclude people who have prostheses. /b This indicates that a prosthetic foot is not called a i regel /i , which seems to contradict the mishna that allows i ḥalitza /i on a prosthetic from the knee down.,The Gemara answers: b It is different here, /b with respect to i ḥalitza /i , b as it is written: /b “She removes the shoe b from on his foot [ i me’al raglo /i ]” /b (Deuteronomy 25:9), which indicates that not only can his actual foot be used for performing i ḥalitza /i , but also the part above it, i.e., the calf. The Gemara objects: b If that is so, /b that one may use a part of his leg above his foot to perform i ḥalitza /i , then if one’s leg was amputated b from above the knee, /b he should b also /b be eligible for i ḥalitza /i ; and yet, the same mishna taught that only one with a leg amputated from below the knee is eligible for i ḥalitza /i . The Gemara answers that the verse states: b “From on /b his foot,” meaning above his foot, b but not: From on that which is on /b his foot; the wording indicates that it can be above his foot until the knee, but not any further above that., b Rav Pappa said: Learn from here that the heel bone [ i istavira /i ] reaches to the ground /b where it connects to the foot, b for if it enters your mind /b to say b that it is separate and divided, /b and there is another bone in between, b then that /b ankle bone b is “from on /b the foot” b and the calf /b would be prohibited for i ḥalitza /i , as it would be considered: b From on that which is on /b his foot. b Rav Ashi said: Even /b if b you say that it is separate and divided /b from the calf, because b anything that is connected with the /b sole of the b foot is considered like the foot, /b then the ankle is certainly part of the foot, making the calf the area that is “from on the foot.”,It was taught in the mishna that if one’s legs were amputated b from the knee and above, /b the i ḥalitza /i is invalid. This implies that the i regel /i includes the calf but not the thigh. b Rav Kahana raised an objection /b from the verse: b “And against her afterbirth that emerges from between her legs [ i ragleha /i ]” /b (Deuteronomy 28:57), implying that i regel /i includes even the thighs. b Abaye said: /b The verse actually means between her feet, as b when /b a woman b crouches to give birth, she pushes her heels into her thighs and she gives birth, /b so it appears as if the fetus emerges from between her feet.,The Gemara continues its challenge. b Come /b and b hear /b another verse: b “He had neither dressed his feet [ i raglav /i ], nor trimmed his beard” /b (II Samuel 19:25). The phrase “dressed his feet [ i raglav /i ]” is referring to treating his pubic hair, implying that even the area around the thigh is referred to as i regel /i . The Gemara answers: This is b a euphemism. /b The Gemara attempts another challenge: b Come /b and b hear /b from another verse: b “And Saul went in to cover his feet [ i raglav /i ]” /b (I Samuel 24:3), meaning: To urinate, implying that i regel /i refers even to the thighs. The Gemara answers: This is also b a euphemism. /b , b Come /b and b hear /b the meaning of: His feet, from the following verse regarding the Moabite king, Eglon, which states: b “Surely he is covering his feet [ i raglav /i ] in the cabinet of the cool chamber” /b (Judges 3:24). The Gemara answers: This is b a euphemism. /b The Gemara attempts another proof from a verse regarding Sisera’s encounter with Yael: b “At her feet [ i ragleha /i ] /b he sunk, he fell” (Judges 5:27), which indicates that they had sexual intercourse, and implies that i regel /i includes the thigh. The Gemara answers: This is also b a euphemism. /b ,The Gemara elaborates on what happened when Sisera was in Yael’s tent. b Rabbi Yoḥa said: That wicked /b man, Sisera, b had /b sexual b intercourse /b with Yael b seven times that day, as it is stated: “At her feet he sunk, he fell, he lay; at her feet he sunk, he fell; where he sunk, there he fell down dead” /b (Judges 5:27). Each instance of the terms “sunk,” “fell,” or “lay” in the verse indicates an act of intercourse, as Yael sought to tire and weaken Sisera to enable her to kill him. The Gemara asks: b But /b how could Yael do this even for the noble purpose of killing the wicked Sisera, as b she derived pleasure from /b the b transgression /b of licentious sexual relations with a gentile? b Rabbi Yoḥa said in the name of Rabbi Shimon ben Yoḥai: Every /b act that is a b benefit for the wicked /b

Conversely, with regard to b Zimri, /b who b engaged in licentious /b sexual intercourse for the purpose of a transgression, b several multitudes of Israel fell due to him; /b twenty-four thousand in a plague (see Numbers 25:9). This shows that a great deal depends on one’s intentions.,§ b Rav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak said: Greater is a transgression /b committed b for its own sake, /b i.e., for the sake of Heaven, b than a mitzva /b performed b not for its own sake. /b The Gemara questions this comparison: b But didn’t Rav Yehuda say /b that b Rav said: A person should always occupy himself with Torah and mitzvot even not for their own sake, as /b it is b through /b acts performed b not for their own sake /b that good deeds b for their own sake come /b about? How, then, can any transgression be considered greater than a mitzva not for the sake of Heaven?, b Rather, /b one must emend the above statement and b say /b as follows: A transgression for the sake of Heaven is b equivalent to a mitzva not for its own sake. /b The proof is b as it is written: “Blessed above women shall Yael be, the wife of Hever the Kenite, above women in the tent she shall be blessed” /b (Judges 5:24), and it is taught: b Who are /b these b “women in the tent?” /b They are b Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel, and Leah. /b Yael’s forbidden intercourse with Sisera for the sake of Heaven is compared to the sexual intercourse in which the Matriarchs engaged.,The Gemara asks: How is it derived that Yael engaged in sexual intercourse with Sisera? As b Rabbi Yoḥa said: That wicked one, /b Sisera, b engaged in seven acts of sexual intercourse /b with Yael b at that time, as it is stated: “Between her feet he sunk, he fell, he lay; /b between her feet he sunk, he fell; where he sunk, there he fell down dead” (Judges 5:27). Each mention of falling is referring to another act of intercourse.,The Gemara asks: b But /b Yael at least b enjoyed the sexual intercourse /b with b him; /b why is the verse so effusive in her praise? b Rabbi Yoḥa said: All the good of the wicked, /b i.e., anything good received from wicked people, b is nothing other /b than b evil for the righteous, /b and therefore she certainly derived no pleasure from the act.,The Gemara asks: From where is this principle derived? b As /b it b is stated /b in the verse that God warned Laban the Aramean, when he was chasing Jacob: b “Guard yourself from speaking to Jacob, from good to evil” /b (Genesis 31:24). b Granted, /b with regard to the warning against speaking b evil, /b it is b fine /b that Laban was warned not to harm Jacob. b However, why shouldn’t /b he say anything b good /b to Jacob? b Rather, /b must one b not conclude from /b this verse that even Laban’s b good is bad /b in Jacob’s eyes? The Gemara concludes: b Learn from this /b that it is so.,§ The Gemara returns to analyze in greater detail b the /b above matter b itself. Rav Yehuda said /b that b Rav said: A person should always occupy himself with Torah and mitzvot even not for their own sake, as through /b these acts performed b not for their own sake, /b good deeds b for their own sake come /b about. The proof for this is b that in reward for the forty-two offerings that the wicked Balak sacrificed /b (see Numbers, chapter 23), although he did not do so for the sake of Heaven but to facilitate the cursing of the Jewish people, nevertheless b he merited that Ruth descended from him. /b Not only was he the forebear of a righteous convert, but also of King David. b And /b this is as b Rabbi Yosei, son of Rabbi Ḥanina, said: Ruth was the daughter of the son of Eglon, king of Moab, /b who descended from Balak, king of Moab., b Rabbi Ḥiyya bar Abba said /b that b Rabbi Yoḥa said: From where /b is it derived b that the Holy One, Blessed be He, does not deprive /b one of b even /b the b reward for proper speech, /b i.e., for speaking in a refined manner? b As while /b there is the case of Lot’s b elder /b daughter, b who called /b her son b Moab [ i mo’av /i ], /b which alludes to his shameful origins, as i me’av /i means: From father, b and the Merciful One says to /b Moses: b “Do not besiege Moab, nor contend with them in war” /b (Deuteronomy 2:9), which indicates: It is b war that is not /b permitted; b however, /b with regard to b harassing, /b the Jews were permitted b to harass them. /b , b And while /b there is the case of Lot’s b younger /b daughter, b who called /b her son b Ben-Ami, /b son of my people, without explicitly mentioning her father. With regard to her descendants, God b said to /b Moses: b “Do not harass them, nor contend with them” /b (Deuteronomy 2:19), which means b even /b as far as b harassing /b is concerned, b you may not harass them at all. /b , b Rabbi Ḥiyya bar Avin said /b that b Rabbi Yehoshua ben Korḥa said: A person should always come first /b with regard b to a matter of a mitzva, as in reward of /b the b one night that the elder /b daughter of Lot b preceded the younger /b for the sake of a mitzva,
