"And I contended with them, and cursed them, and smote certain of them, and plucked off their hair, and made them swear by God: ‘Ye shall not give your daughters unto their sons, nor take their daughters for your sons, or for yourselves.", 13.26. "Did not Solomon king of Israel sin by these things? yet among many nations was there no king like him, and he was beloved of his God, and God made him king over all Israel; nevertheless even him did the foreign women cause to sin.", 13.27. "Shall we then hearken unto you to do all this great evil, to break faith with our God in marrying foreign women?’",

2.9. On the same night I returned from burying him, and because I was defiled I slept by the wall of the courtyard, and my face was uncovered. 3.1. Then in my grief I wept, and I prayed in anguish, saying, 3.10. When she heard these things she was deeply grieved, even to the thought of hanging herself. But she said, "I am the only child of my father; if I do this, it will be a disgrace to him, and I shall bring his old age down in sorrow to the grave. 3.11. So she prayed by her window and said, "Blessed art thou, O Lord my God, and blessed is thy holy and honored name for ever. May all thy works praise thee for ever. 8.4. When the door was shut and the two were alone, Tobias got up from the bed and said, "Sister, get up, and let us pray that the Lord may have mercy upon us." 8.5. And Tobias began to pray, "Blessed art thou, O God of our fathers,and blessed be thy holy and glorious name for ever. Let the heavens and all thy creatures bless thee. 8.6. Thou madest Adam and gavest him Eve his wife as a helper and support.From them the race of mankind has sprung.Thou didst say, `It is not good that the man should be alone;let us make a helper for him like himself. 8.7. And now, O Lord, I am not taking this sister of mine because of lust, but with sincerity. Grant that I may find mercy and may grow old together with her." 8.8. And she said with him, "Amen."

2.2. And I was young, about twenty years of age, when, with Simeon, I wrought vengeance on Hamor for our sister Dinah. 5.3. Then the angel brought me down to the earth, and gave me a shield and a sword, and said to me: Execute vengeance on Shechem because of Dinah, thy sister, and I will be with thee because the Lord hath sent me. 6.3. And after this I counselled my father, and Reuben my brother, to bid the sons of Hamor not to be circumcised; for I was zealous because of the abomination which they had wrought on my sister. 8.2. And I saw seven men in white raiment saying unto me: Arise, put on the robe of the priesthood, and the crown of righteousness, and the breastplate of understanding, and the garment of truth, and the plate of faith, and the turban of the head, and the ephod of prophecy.

1.12. Then Nebuchadnezzar was very angry with this whole region, and swore by his throne and kingdom that he would surely take revenge on the whole territory of Cilicia and Damascus and Syria, that he would kill them by the sword, and also all the inhabitants of the land of Moab, and the people of Ammon, and all Judea, and every one in Egypt, as far as the coasts of the two seas. 2.1. In the eighteenth year, on the twenty-second day of the first month, there was talk in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar king of the Assyrians about carrying out his revenge on the whole region, just as he said. 2.27. Then he went down into the plain of Damascus during the wheat harvest, and burned all their fields and destroyed their flocks and herds and sacked their cities and ravaged their lands and put to death all their young men with the edge of the sword. 5.5. Then Achior, the leader of all the Ammonites, said to him, "Let my lord now hear a word from the mouth of your servant, and I will tell you the truth about this people that dwells in the nearby mountain district. No falsehood shall come from your servant's mouth. 5.6. This people is descended from the Chaldeans. 5.7. At one time they lived in Mesopotamia, because they would not follow the gods of their fathers who were in Chaldea. 5.8. For they had left the ways of their ancestors, and they worshiped the God of heaven, the God they had come to know; hence they drove them out from the presence of their gods; and they fled to Mesopotamia, and lived there for a long time. 5.9. Then their God commanded them to leave the place where they were living and go to the land of Canaan. There they settled, and prospered, with much gold and silver and very many cattle. 5.10. When a famine spread over Canaan they went down to Egypt and lived there as long as they had food; and there they became a great multitude -- so great that they could not be counted. 5.11. So the king of Egypt became hostile to them; he took advantage of them and set them to making bricks, and humbled them and made slaves of them. 5.12. Then they cried out to their God, and he afflicted the whole land of Egypt with incurable plagues; and so the Egyptians drove them out of their sight. 5.13. Then God dried up the Red Sea before them, 5.14. and he led them by the way of Sinai and Kadesh-barnea, and drove out all the people of the wilderness. 5.15. So they lived in the land of the Amorites, and by their might destroyed all the inhabitants of Heshbon; and crossing over the Jordan they took possession of all the hill country. 5.16. And they drove out before them the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Jebusites and the Shechemites and all the Gergesites, and lived there a long time. 5.17. As long as they did not sin against their God they prospered, for the God who hates iniquity is with them. 5.18. But when they departed from the way which he had appointed for them, they were utterly defeated in many battles and were led away captive to a foreign country; the temple of their God was razed to the ground, and their cities were captured by their enemies. 5.19. But now they have returned to their God, and have come back from the places to which they were scattered, and have occupied Jerusalem, where their sanctuary is, and have settled in the hill country, because it was uninhabited. 5.20. Now therefore, my master and lord, if there is any unwitting error in this people and they sin against their God and we find out their offense, then we will go up and defeat them. 5.21. But if there is no transgression in their nation, then let my lord pass them by; for their Lord will defend them, and their God will protect them, and we shall be put to shame before the whole world." 6.2. "And who are you, Achior, and you hirelings of Ephraim, to prophesy among us as you have done today and tell us not to make war against the people of Israel because their God will defend them? Who is God except Nebuchadnezzar? 6.5. "But you, Achior, you Ammonite hireling, who have said these words on the day of your iniquity, you shall not see my face again from this day until I take revenge on this race that came out of Egypt. 6.15. who in those days were Uzziah the son of Micah, of the tribe of Simeon, and Chabris the son of Gothoniel, and Charmis the son of Melchiel. 7.14. They and their wives and children will waste away with famine, and before the sword reaches them they will be strewn about in the streets where they live. 7.28. We call to witness against you heaven and earth and our God, the Lord of our fathers, who punishes us according to our sins and the sins of our fathers. Let him not do this day the things which we have described!" 8.1. At that time Judith heard about these things: she was the daughter of Merari the son of Ox, son of Joseph, son of Oziel, son of Elkiah, son of Aias, son of Gideon, son of Raphaim, son of Ahitub, son of Elijah, son of Hilkiah, son of Eliab, son of Nathanael, son of Salamiel, son of Sarasadai, son of Israel. 8.3. For as he stood overseeing the men who were binding sheaves in the field, he was overcome by the burning heat, and took to his bed and died in Bethulia his city. So they buried him with his fathers in the field between Dothan and Balamon. 8.4. Judith had lived at home as a widow for three years and four months. 8.5. She set up a tent for herself on the roof of her house, and girded sackcloth about her loins and wore the garments of her widowhood. 8.6. She fasted all the days of her widowhood, except the day before the sabbath and the sabbath itself, the day before the new moon and the day of the new moon, and the feasts and days of rejoicing of the house of Israel. 8.11. They came to her, and she said to them, "Listen to me, rulers of the people of Bethulia! What you have said to the people today is not right; you have even sworn and pronounced this oath between God and you, promising to surrender the city to our enemies unless the Lord turns and helps us within so many days. 8.12. Who are you, that have put God to the test this day, and are setting yourselves up in the place of God among the sons of men? 8.13. You are putting the Lord Almighty to the test -- but you will never know anything! 8.14. You cannot plumb the depths of the human heart, nor find out what a man is thinking; how do you expect to search out God, who made all these things, and find out his mind or comprehend his thought? No, my brethren, do not provoke the Lord our God to anger. 8.15. For if he does not choose to help us within these five days, he has power to protect us within any time he pleases, or even to destroy us in the presence of our enemies. 8.16. Do not try to bind the purposes of the Lord our God; for God is not like man, to be threatened, nor like a human being, to be won over by pleading. 8.17. Therefore, while we wait for his deliverance, let us call upon him to help us, and he will hear our voice, if it pleases him. 8.18. "For never in our generation, nor in these present days, has there been any tribe or family or people or city of ours which worshiped gods made with hands, as was done in days gone by -- 8.19. and that was why our fathers were handed over to the sword, and to be plundered, and so they suffered a great catastrophe before our enemies. 8.20. But we know no other god but him, and therefore we hope that he will not disdain us or any of our nation. 8.21. For if we are captured all Judea will be captured and our sanctuary will be plundered; and he will exact of us the penalty for its desecration. 8.22. And the slaughter of our brethren and the captivity of the land and the desolation of our inheritance -- all this he will bring upon our heads among the Gentiles, wherever we serve as slaves; and we shall be an offense and a reproach in the eyes of those who acquire us. 8.23. For our slavery will not bring us into favor, but the Lord our God will turn it to dishonor. 8.24. "Now therefore, brethren, let us set an example to our brethren, for their lives depend upon us, and the sanctuary and the temple and the altar rest upon us. 8.25. In spite of everything let us give thanks to the Lord our God, who is putting us to the test as he did our forefathers. 8.26. Remember what he did with Abraham, and how he tested Isaac, and what happened to Jacob in Mesopotamia in Syria, while he was keeping the sheep of Laban, his mother's brother. 8.27. For he has not tried us with fire, as he did them, to search their hearts, nor has he taken revenge upon us; but the Lord scourges those who draw near to him, in order to admonish them." 8.35. Uzziah and the rulers said to her, "Go in peace, and may the Lord God go before you, to take revenge upon our enemies." 9.1. Then Judith fell upon her face, and put ashes on her head, and uncovered the sackcloth she was wearing; and at the very time when that evening's incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem, Judith cried out to the Lord with a loud voice, and said, 9.2. "O Lord God of my father Simeon, to whom thou gavest a sword to take revenge on the strangers who had loosed the girdle of a virgin to defile her, and uncovered her thigh to put her to shame, and polluted her womb to disgrace her; for thou hast said, `It shall not be done' -- yet they did it. 9.3. So thou gavest up their rulers to be slain, and their bed, which was ashamed of the deceit they had practiced, to be stained with blood, and thou didst strike down slaves along with princes, and princes on their thrones; 9.4. and thou gavest their wives for a prey and their daughters to captivity, and all their booty to be divided among thy beloved sons, who were zealous for thee, and abhorred the pollution of their blood, and called on thee for help -- O God, my God, hear me also, a widow. 9.5. "For thou hast done these things and those that went before and those that followed; thou hast designed the things that are now, and those that are to come. Yea, the things thou didst intend came to pass, 9.6. and the things thou didst will presented themselves and said, `Lo, we are here'; for all they ways are prepared in advance, and thy judgment is with foreknowledge. 9.7. "Behold now, the Assyrians are increased in their might; they are exalted, with their horses and riders; they glory in the strength of their foot soldiers; they trust in shield and spear, in bow and sling, and know not that thou art the Lord who crushest wars; the Lord is thy name. 9.8. Break their strength by thy might, and bring down their power in thy anger; for they intend to defile thy sanctuary, and to pollute the tabernacle where thy glorious name rests, and to cast down the horn of thy altar with the sword. 9.9. Behold their pride, and send thy wrath upon their heads; give to me, a widow, the strength to do what I plan. 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. 9.11. "For thy power depends not upon numbers, nor thy might upon men of strength; for thou art God of the lowly, helper of the oppressed, upholder of the weak, protector of the forlorn, savior of those without hope. 9.12. Hear, O hear me, God of my father, God of the inheritance of Israel, Lord of heaven and earth, Creator of the waters, King of all thy creation, hear my prayer! 9.13. Make my deceitful words to be their wound and stripe, for they have planned cruel things against thy covet, and against thy consecrated house, and against the top of Zion, and against the house possessed by thy children. 9.14. And cause thy whole nation and every tribe to know and understand that thou art God, the God of all power and might, and that there is no other who protects the people of Israel but thou alone!" 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. 13.6. She went up to the post at the end of the bed, above Holofernes' head, and took down his sword that hung there. 13.9. Then she tumbled his body off the bed and pulled down the canopy from the posts; after a moment she went out, and gave Holofernes' head to her maid, 13.11. Judith called out from afar to the watchmen at the gates, "Open, open the gate! God, our God, is still with us, to show his power in Israel, and his strength against our enemies, even as he has done this day!" 14.5. But before you do all this, bring Achior the Ammonite to me, and let him see and recognize the man who despised the house of Israel and sent him to us as if to his death." 16.4. The Assyrian came down from the mountains of the north; he came with myriads of his warriors; their multitude blocked up the valleys, their cavalry covered the hills. 16.17. Woe to the nations that rise up against my people!

She became more and more famous, and grew old in her husband's house, until she was one hundred and five years old. She set her maid free.

35.17. The prayer of the humble pierces the clouds,and he will not be consoled until it reaches the Lord;he will not desist until the Most High visits him,and does justice for the righteous, and executes judgment. 35.18. And the Lord will not delay,neither will he be patient with them,till he crushes the loins of the unmerciful and repays vengeance on the nations;till he takes away the multitude of the insolent,and breaks the scepters of the unrighteous; 35.19. till he repays the man according to his deeds,and the works of men according to their devices;till he judges the case of his people and makes them rejoice in his mercy.

30.1. And in the first year of the sixth week he went up to Salem, to the east of Shechem, in peace, in the fourth month. 30.2. And there they carried off Dinah, the daughter of Jacob, into the house of Shechem, the son of Hamor, the Hivite, the prince of the land, and he lay with her and defiled her, 30.3. and she was a little girl, a child of twelve years. br And he besought his father and her brothers that she might be given to him to wife. 30.4. And Jacob and his sons were wroth because of the men of Shechem; for they had defiled Dinah, their sister, and they spake to them with evil intent and dealt deceitfully with them and beguiled them. 30.5. And Simeon and Levi came unexpectedly to Shechem and executed judgment on all the men of Shechem, and slew all the men whom they found in it, and left not a single one remaining in it: 30.6. they slew all in torments because they had dishonoured their sister Dinah. 30.11. And if there is any man who wisheth in Israel to give his daughter or his sister to any man who is of the seed of the Gentiles he shall surely die, and they shall stone him with stones; for he hath wrought shame in Israel; 30.12. and they shall burn the woman with fire, because she hath dishonoured the name of the house of her father, and she shall be rooted out of Israel. 30.13. And let not an adulteress and no uncleanness be found in Israel throughout all the days of the generations of the earth; for Israel is holy unto the Lord, 30.14. and every man who hath defiled (it) shall surely die: they shall stone him with stones. 30.18. For this reason I have written for thee in the words of the Law all the deeds of the Shechemites, which they wrought against Dinah,

At the same time he killed the kings officer who was forcing them to sacrifice, and he tore down the altar. 2.26. Thus he burned with zeal for the law, as Phinehas did against Zimri the son of Salu. 2.27. Then Mattathias cried out in the city with a loud voice, saying: "Let every one who is zealous for the law and supports the covet come out with me!" 2.50. Now, my children, show zeal for the law, and give your lives for the covet of our fathers. 2.54. Phinehas our father, because he was deeply zealous, received the covet of everlasting priesthood. 2.58. Elijah because of great zeal for the law was taken up into heaven. 4.30.

So do thou hem in this army by the hand of thy people Israel, and let them be ashamed of their troops and their cavalry. 4.32. Fill them with cowardice; melt the boldness of their strength; let them tremble in their destruction. 4.33. Strike them down with the sword of those who love thee, and let all who know thy name praise thee with hymns." 7.40. And Judas encamped in Adasa with three thousand men. Then Judas prayed and said, 7.41. "When the messengers from the king spoke blasphemy, thy angel went forth and struck down one hundred and eighty-five thousand of the Assyrians. 7.42. So also crush this army before us today; let the rest learn that Nicanor has spoken wickedly against the sanctuary, and judge him according to this wickedness."

200. And those who are prepared to avenge themselves on such profane and impure dispositions are Simeon and Levi, two indeed in number, but only one in mind; on which account, in his blessings of his sons, their father numbers them together under one classification, on account of the harmonious character of their uimity and of their violence in one and the same direction. But Moses does not make any mention of them afterwards as a pair, but classes the whole tribe of Simeon under that of Levi, combining together two essences, of which he made one impressed as it were with one idea and appearance, hearing to doing.

For he who bears the same name as this place, namely Sichem, the son of Hamor, that is, of irrational nature; for the name Hamor means "an ass;" giving himself up to folly and being bred up with shamelessness and audacity, infamous man that he was, attempted to pollute and to defile the judicial faculties of the mind; if the pupils and friends of wisdom, Sichem and Levi, had not speedily come up, having made the defences of their house safe, and destroyed those who were still involved in the labour devoted to pleasure and to the indulgence of the passions and uncircumcised.

1.44. One of these men, then, the most violent of them, when, in addition to yielding nothing of his purpose, he was even exasperated at the exhortations of Moses and rendered more savage by them, beating those who did not labour with energy and unremittingly at the work which was imposed upon them, and insulting them and subjecting them to every kind of ill-treatment, so as even to be the death of many, Moses slew, thinking the deed a pious action; and, indeed, it was a pious action to destroy one who only lived for the destruction of others. 1.45. When the king heard of this action he was very indigt, thinking it an intolerable thing, not for one man to be dead, or for another to have killed him, whether justly or unjustly, but for his grandson not to agree with him, and not to look upon his friends or his enemies as his own, but to hate persons whom the king loved, and to love persons whom the king looked upon as outcasts, and to pity those whom he regarded with unchangeable and implacable aversion. 1.46. But when the Egyptian authorities had once got an opportunity of attacking the young man, having already reason for looking upon him with suspicion (for they well knew that he would hereafter bear them ill-will for their evil practices, and would revenge himself on them when he had an opportunity 1.47. As they urged these arguments to the king he retreated to the contiguous country of Arabia, where it was safe to abide, entreating God that he would deliver his countrymen from inextricable calamities, and would worthily chastise their oppressors who omitted no circumstance of insolence and tyranny, and would double his joy by allowing him to behold the accomplishment of both these prayers. And God heard his prayers, looking favourably on his disposition, so devoted to what is good, and so hostile to what is evil, and not long after he pronounced his decision upon the affairs of that land as became a God. 1.48. But while he was preparing to display the decision which he was about to pronounce, Moses was devoting himself to all the labours of virtue, having a teacher within himself, virtuous reason, by whom he had been trained to the most virtuous pursuits of life, and had learnt to apply himself to the contemplation and practice of virtue and to the continual study of the doctrines of philosophy, which he easily and thoroughly comprehended in his soul, and committed to memory in such a manner as never to forget them; and, moreover, he made all his own actions, which were intrinsically praiseworthy, to harmonise with them, desiring not to seem wise and good, but in truth and reality to be so, because he made the right reason of nature his only aim; which is, in fact, the only first principle and fountain of all the virtues.

1.337. 1. Hereupon Jacob came to the place, till this day called Tents (Succoth;) from whence he went to Shechem, which is a city of the Canaanites. Now as the Shechemites were keeping a festival Dina, who was the only daughter of Jacob, went into the city to see the finery of the women of that country. But when Shechem, the son of Hamor the king, saw her, he defiled her by violence; and being greatly in love with her, desired of his father that he would procure the damsel to him for a wife. 1.338. To which desire he condescended, and came to Jacob, desiring him to give leave that his son Shechem might, according to law, marry Dina. But Jacob, not knowing how to deny the desire of one of such great dignity, and yet not thinking it lawful to marry his daughter to a stranger, entreated him to give him leave to have a consultation about what he desired him to do. 1.340. It being now the time of a festival, when the Shechemites were employed in ease and feasting, they fell upon the watch when they were asleep, and, coming into the city, slew all the males as also the king, and his son, with them; but spared the women. And when they had done this without their father’s consent, they brought away their sister.

The Gemara deduces: This proves b by inference that if he purchases /b a new object b and then purchases /b a similar object, b everyone agrees that he is not required to recite a blessing, /b as he has already recited a blessing over the purchase of that type of item., b Some say /b a different version of this dispute: b Rav Huna said: They only taught /b that one recites the blessing: Who has given us life, on a new vessel b if he did not purchase /b that item in the past b and purchased /b the item now, for the first time. b However, if he purchased /b that item in the past b and purchased /b the item b again, he need not recite a blessing. And Rabbi Yoḥa said: Even if one purchased /b that item in the past b and purchased /b a similar item b again, he must recite a blessing. /b This proves b by inference that if one /b already b has /b a vessel b and /b then b purchased /b similar vessels, b everyone agrees that he must recite a blessing. /b ,The Gemara b raises an objection /b based on what was taught in a i baraita /i : One who b built a new house and does not /b already b own a similar /b house, b or purchased new vessels and does not /b already b own similar /b vessels, b must recite a blessing. /b However, if b he /b already b owns a similar /b one, b he need not recite a blessing, /b this is b the statement of Rabbi Meir. Rabbi Yehuda, /b on the other hand, b says: In either case, he must recite a blessing. /b ,The Gemara asks: b Granted, according to the first version /b of the dispute between Rav Huna and Rabbi Yoḥa, one could say that b Rav Huna /b holds b in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Meir, and /b that b Rabbi Yoḥa /b holds b in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yehuda. However, according to the latter version /b of the dispute, b granted, Rav Huna /b holds b in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yehuda, but in accordance with whose /b opinion b did Rabbi Yoḥa state /b his opinion? His statement b is neither in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Meir nor in accordance with /b the opinion of b Rabbi Yehuda. /b ,The Gemara responds: b Rabbi Yoḥa /b could have b said to you: The same is true according to Rabbi Yehuda’s /b opinion; in a case where b one has purchased /b an item in the past b and purchased /b a similar item b again, he must recite a blessing. /b The fact b that they /b only b disagreed with regard to /b a case b where he /b already b owned /b similar vessels b and he purchased /b new ones does not indicate that this is their only disagreement. The dispute was presented in this way b to convey the far-reaching nature of Rabbi Meir’s /b opinion b ; even /b in a case where b one purchased /b an item b while owning a /b similar item, b he need not recite a blessing; all the more so /b in a case where b he purchased /b an item b and then purchased /b a similar item b again, he need not recite a blessing. /b ,The Gemara asks: b And /b if that is the reason for presenting the dispute in this manner, b let them disagree with regard to /b a case b where one purchased /b an item in the past b and /b then b purchased /b a similar item b again, /b where according to Rabbi Meir b one need not recite a blessing, in order to convey the far-reaching nature of Rabbi Yehuda’s /b opinion; as Rabbi Yehuda requires a blessing in that case. The Gemara responds: The Gemara preferred the version before us in order to demonstrate the extent to which Rabbi Meir was lenient in not requiring a blessing because b the strength of leniency is preferable. /b ,We learned in the mishna: b One recites a blessing for the bad /b that befalls him just as he does for the good. This is to say that one recites the blessing appropriate for the present situation even if it is bad, despite the fact that it may develop into a positive situation in the future.,The Gemara asks: b What are the circumstances? /b The Gemara explains: b In a case where a dam was breached /b and water flowed b onto one’s land, despite /b the fact b that this will /b ultimately b be beneficial for him, for his land will be covered with sediment /b from the flowing water b which will enhance /b the quality of his soil, b it is /b nonetheless b bad at present. /b ,One must recite a blessing b for the good /b that befalls him just as for the bad.,The Gemara asks: b What are the circumstances? /b The Gemara explains: b In a case where one found a lost object, despite /b the fact b that it is /b ultimately b bad for him /b because b if the king heard about it, he would /b certainly b take it from him. /b At that time, the law deemed all found objects the property of the king’s treasury and one who did not report such an object would be punished. Nevertheless, b it is favorable at present. /b ,We learned in the mishna: b One whose wife was pregt and he said: May it be /b God’s b will that /b my wife b will give birth /b to a male child, b it is a vain prayer. /b , b Is a prayer /b in that case b ineffective? Rav Yosef raises an objection /b based on a i baraita /i : It is stated: b “And afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dina” /b (Genesis 30:21). The Gemara asks: b What is /b meant by the addition of the word: b Afterwards? /b What does the verse seek to convey by emphasizing that after the birth of Zebulun she gave birth to Dina? b Rav said: After Leah passed judgment on herself and said: Twelve tribes are destined to descend from Jacob, six came from me and four from the maidservants, that is ten, /b and b if this /b fetus b is male, my sister /b Rachel b will not /b even b be /b the equivalent b of one the maidservants; immediately /b the fetus b was transformed into a daughter, as it is stated: And she called her name Dina; /b meaning she named her after her judgment [din]. The Gemara rejects this: b One does not mention miraculous acts /b to teach general i halakha /i .,The Gemara introduces an alternative explanation: b And if you wish, say /b instead that the b story of Leah /b and her prayer with regard to the fetus b was within forty days /b of conception. b As it was taught /b in a i baraita /i : During b the first three days /b after intercourse, b one should pray that /b the seed b not putrefy, /b that it will fertilize the egg and develop into a fetus. b From the third /b day b until the fortieth, one should pray that it will be male. From the fortieth /b day b until three months, one should pray that it will not be /b deformed, in the shape of a b flat fish, /b as when the fetus does not develop it assumes a shape somewhat similar to a flat sandal fish. b From the third month until the sixth, one should pray that it will not be stillborn. /b And b from the sixth /b month b until the ninth, one should pray that it will be emerge safely. /b Therefore, during the first forty days from conception, one may still pray to affect the gender of the fetus.,The Gemara asks: b Is prayer effective /b for that purpose? b Didn’t Rav Yitzḥak, son of Rav Ami, say: /b The tradition teaches that the gender of the fetus is determined at the moment of conception. If the b man emits seed first, /b his wife b gives birth to a female; /b if the b woman emits seed first, she gives birth to a male, as it is stated: “When a woman emitted seed and bore a male” /b (Leviticus 12:2). The Gemara answers: b With what are we dealing here? /b We are dealing b with a case where they both emit seed simultaneously. /b In that case, the gender is undetermined and prayer may be effectual.,We learned in the mishna: b One who was walking along the way /b and heard a scream from the city, and says: May it be God’s will that this scream will not be from my house, it is a vain prayer., b The Sages taught: There was an incident involving Hillel the Elder, who was coming on the road when he heard a scream in the city. He said: I am certain that /b the scream b is not /b coming b from my house. And of him, the verse says: “He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord” /b (Psalms 112:7). b Rava said: Any way that you interpret this verse, /b its meaning is clear. b It /b can be b interpreted from beginning to end /b or b it /b can be b interpreted from end to beginning. /b The Gemara explains: b It /b can be b interpreted from beginning to end: Why is it that: He shall not be afraid of evil tidings? /b Because b his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. /b The Gemara continues: b And it /b can be b interpreted from end to beginning: /b One whose b heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord /b is a person who b shall not be afraid of evil tidings. /b ,The Gemara relates: b This student was once walking after Rabbi Yishmael, son of Rabbi Yosei, in the marketplace of Zion. /b Rabbi Yishmael b saw that /b the student b was afraid. He said to him: You are a sinner, as it is written: “The transgressors in Zion are afraid, /b trembling has seized the ungodly” (Isaiah 33:14). The student b replied: And is it not written: “Happy is the man that fears always” /b (Proverbs 28:14)? Rabbi Yishmael b said to him: That /b verse b is written with regard to matters of Torah, /b that one should be afraid lest he forget them. For everything else, one must trust in God.,In a similar vein, the Gemara relates: b Yehuda bar Natan was coming and going after Rav Hamnuna. /b Yehuda bar Natan b sighed; /b Rav Hamnuna b said to him: Do you wish to bring suffering upon yourself; as it is stated: “For that which I did fear is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of has overtaken me” /b (Job 3:25)? He responded: b Is it not said: “Happy is the man who fears always”? /b Rav Hamnuna answered: b That /b verse b is written with regard to matters of Torah. /b , b We learned /b in the mishna: b One who enters a large city /b recites two prayers; Ben Azzai says he recites four prayers., b The Sages taught /b the details of Ben Azzai’s teaching in a i baraita /i : br b Upon his entrance /b to the city b what does he recite? /b br b May it be Your will, O Lord my God, that You bring me into this city to peace. /b br After b he entered /b the city, b he recites: I thank You, O Lord my God /b , b that You brought me into this city to peace. /b br When he b seeks to leave /b the city, b he recites: May it be Your will, O Lord my God and God of my ancestors, that You take me out of this city to peace. /b br After b he left, he recites: I give thanks before You, O Lord my God, that You took me out of this city to peace; /b br b and just as You took me out to peace, /b br b so too lead me to peace, support me to peace, direct my steps to peace, /b br b and rescue me from the hand of any enemy or /b those b lying in ambush along the way. /b , b Rav Mattana said: This was taught only with regard to a city where /b criminals b are not tried and executed, /b as in a place like that he may be killed without trial. b However, in a city where /b criminals b are tried and executed, /b these prayers b do not apply, /b as if one is not guilty he will not be harmed., b Some say /b that b Rav Mattana said /b the opposite: b Even in a city where /b criminals b are tried and executed /b one must pray for mercy, b as sometimes he may not encounter a person who will plead in his favor. /b , b The Sages taught: One who enters a /b Roman b bathhouse, /b where a fire burns beneath the pool of water used for bathing, and where there is the risk of collapse, b says: /b br b May it be Your will, O Lord my God, that you save me from this and similar /b matters, br b and do not let ruin or iniquity befall me, /b br b and if ruin or iniquity does befall me, let my death be atonement for all of my transgressions. /b , b Abaye said: One should not say: /b If ruin befalls me, b so as not to open his mouth to Satan /b and provoke him. b As Rabbi Shimon ben Lakish said and as it was taught /b in a i baraita /i b in the name of Rabbi Yosei: One should never open his mouth to Satan /b by raising, at his own initiative, the possibility of mishap or death., b Rav Yosef said: What is the verse /b that alludes to this? b As it is written: “We should have almost been as Sodom, we should have been like unto Gomorrah” /b (Isaiah 1:9), after which b what did /b the prophet b reply to them? “Hear the word of the Lord, rulers of Sodom; /b give ear unto the law of our God, people of Gomorrah” (Isaiah 1:10). After the analogy to Sodom was raised, it was realized.,Returning to the subject of the Roman bathhouse, the Gemara asks: b When he emerges /b from the bathhouse, b what does he say? Rav Aḥa said: I give thanks to You, Lord, that You saved me from the fire. /b ,The Gemara relates: b Rabbi Abbahu entered a bathhouse when the bathhouse /b floor b collapsed beneath him and a miracle transpired on his behalf. He stood on a pillar and saved one hundred and one men with one arm. /b He held one or two people in his arm, with others holding on them and so on, so that all were saved. b He said: This is /b confirmation of the statement b of Rav Aḥa, /b who said that one should offer thanks upon leaving the bathhouse safely., b As Rav Aḥa said: One who enters to let blood says: /b br b May it be Your will, O Lord my God, /b br b that this enterprise be for healing and that You should heal me. /b br b As You are a faithful God of healing and Your healing is truth. /b br b Because it is not the way of people to heal, but they have become accustomed. /b br Rav Aḥa is saying that people should not practice medicine as they lack the ability to heal; rather, healing should be left to God., b Abaye /b responded and b said: One should not say this, as /b it was b taught /b in b the school of Rabbi Yishmael /b that from the verse, b “And shall cause him to be thoroughly healed” /b (Exodus 21:19), b from here /b we derive b that permission is granted to a doctor to heal. /b The practice of medicine is in accordance with the will of God.,As for bloodletting, the Gemara asks: b When one stands /b after having let blood, b what does he say? Rav Aḥa said: /b He recites in gratitude: b Blessed…Who heals without payment. /b
