Forgiveness for King Menasheh and for us


"[When King Menasheh decided to repent,] the ministering malachim sealed the openings, lest Menasheh's prayer ascend before Gd. The ministering malachim said before Gd: Master of the Universe! Will You accept the repentance of a man who worshipped idols and set up an idol in the Sanctuary?!

"He replied: If I would not accept his repentance, I would lock the door before all who repented!

"What did Gd do? He tunneled beneath His throne of honour and heard his prayer."

(Talmud Yerushalmi, Sanhedrin 10:2)

Have a great day,
