Obey the law! Obey a law!


"[A verse (Isaiah 5) states:] The depths widened, and opened her mouth to [swallow] the one without a law (literally: without limit).

"Reish Lakish explained: Even a person who omits a single law [ends up in the depths].

"Rabbi Yochanan responded: That interpretation does not please your Master! Rather, even a person who has learned a single law will not be drawn into the depths!"

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 111a)

Have a great day,
