R abbi 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?"

Exodus Rabbah 44.3 

I f 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).


G od said to Israel, "Because you have seen me in many likenesses, there are not therefore many gods. But it is ever the same God: I am the Lord your God." Rabbi Levi said, "God appeared to them like a mirror, in which many faces can be reflected; a thousand people look at it; it looks at all of them." So when God spoke to the Israelites, each one thought that God spoke individually to him.
