The consequences of one's actions


"When King Solomon [builder of the first Beit haMikdash] married the daughter of the Pharaoh, the angel Gavriel stabbed a reed into the sea, and raised silt around it; the great city of Rome [destroyer of the second Beit haMikdash] was built upon that spot."
(Talmud, Sanhedrin 21b)

Have a great day,
