The Large Eye of Greed


"Abba Shaul said: I was a burier of the dead, and once a cave opened up below me and I found myself standing in the pupil of a corpse's eye, all the way up to my nostrils. When I got out, they told me that this was the eye of Avshalom (who greedily plotted a coup to take the throne from his father, King David).

"And don't think Abba Shaul was short; he was the tallest man of his generation!"

(Talmud, Niddah 24b)
