praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

My tears have been my food
day and night.

Rabbi Simlai said, "Six hundred and thirteen commandments were given to
Moses, 365 negative commandments, answering to the number of the days of
the year, and 248 positive commandments, answering to the number of a
man's members. Then David came and reduced them to eleven [Psalm 15].
Then came Isaiah, and reduced them to six [Isaiah 63.15]. Then came
Micah, and reduced them to three [Micah 6.8]. Then Isaiah came again, and
reduced them to two, as it is said, 'Keep ye judgment and do
righteousness.' Then came Amos, and reduced them to one, as it is said,
'Seek me and live.' Or one may say, then came Habakkuk [2.4], and reduced
them to one, as it is said, 'The righteous shall live by his faith.'"

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]

Rabbi Phinehas the Priest said in reference to Proverbs 11.21, "If you
have fulfilled a command, do not seek its reward from God straightaway,
lest you not be acquitted of sin, but be regarded as wicked because you
have not sought to cause your children to inherit anything. For if
Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had sought the reward of the good deeds which
they performed, how could the seed of these righteous men [e.g., Israel]
have been delivered?"

Quote n 4323 :  Misdrash , Judaism
Source : Exodus Rabbah 44.3  

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]

Happy are the righteous! Not only do they acquire merit, but they bestow
merit upon their children and children's children to the end of all
generations, for Aaron had several sons who deserved to be burned like
Nadab and Abihu, but the merit of their father helped them. Woe unto the
wicked! Not alone that they render themselves guilty, but they bestow
guilt upon their children and children's children unto the end of all
generations. Many sons did Canaan have, who were worthy to be ordained
like Tabi, the slave of Rabbi Gamaliel, but the guilt of their ancestor
caused them [to lose their chance].

Quote n 4322 : , Judaism

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]

For I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the
fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those
who hate me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of
those who love me and keep my commandments.

Quote n 4320 : , Judaism
Source : Exodus 20.5-6  

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]

Him who humbles himself, God exalts; him who exalts himself, God humbles;
from him who searches for greatness, greatness flies; him who flies from
greatness, greatness searches out: with him who is importunate with
circumstances, circumstance is importunate; by him who gives way to
circumstance, circumstance stands.

Quote n 4303 : , Judaism
Source : Erubin 13b  

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]

Is there a "righteous man" who is good and a righteous man who is not good? He who is good to Heaven and good to man, he is a righteous man who is good; good to Heaven but not good to man, that is a righteous man who is evil... But a wicked man who is evil to Heaven and evil to man, he is a wicked man who is evil; he who is evil to Heaven but not evil to man, that is a wicked man who is not evil.

A- A A+ [↳ E-mail]
Review(s):   [↳ See (1)]

Vanity of vanities! All is vanity. What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun?

I have seen everything that is done under the sun; and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.

Quote n 4275 : , Judaism

Rabbi Isaac said, "Man's evil inclination renews itself daily against him, as it is said, 'Every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil every day.' [Genesis 6.5]." And Rabbi Simeon ben Levi said, "Man's evil inclination gathers strength against him daily and seeks to slay him... and were not the Holy One, blessed be He, to help him, he could not prevail against it."

If a man perform a religious precept, one angel is assigned to him; if he perform two precepts, two angels are assigned to him; if he perform all the precepts, many angels are assigned to him; as it is said, "For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all thy ways" (Psalm 91.11). Who are these angels? They are his guardians from the harmful spirits; as it is said, "A thousand shall fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand" (Psalm 91.7).

Not like this world is the World to Come. In the World to Come there is neither eating nor drinking, nor procreation of children or business transactions, no envy or hatred or rivalry; but the righteous sit enthroned, their crowns on their heads, and enjoy the luster of the Divine Splendor (Shechinah).
