An oath in the womb


Lots of food for thought here, some of it quite controversial:

"What is the oath they make a person swear [before birth]?

"'Be a righteous person and not a wicked person. Even if the entire world tells you, ‘You are a righteous person,’ be a wicked person in your own eyes. And know that HaShem is pure and HaShem’s servants are pure, and the soul HaShem has placed into you is pure. If you guard it in purity, good. If not, I will remove it from you.'”

(Talmud, Niddah 30b)

Have a great day,
