Don't let it become chametz


[Regarding Shmot 12:17, 'And you shall guard the matzot']

"R' Yoshiyah said: Don't read it this way, but as 'And you shall guard the mitzvot.' Just as we don't let matzah ferment, so we don't let a mitzvah ferment. If it comes to hand, do it immediately."

(Midrash, Mechilta d'Rabbi Yishmael Bo 9)

Chag kasher v'sameach,
