The rehabilitation of Nevuchadnezzar, and the reaction of the Sages


"R' Yitzchak said: Molten gold should be poured into the mouth of that wicked one [King Nevuchadnezzar, who praised Gd at the end of the third chapter of the book of Daniel]. Had a malach not slapped his mouth, he would have put all of the songs and praises of David in Tehillim to shame!"

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 92b)

Have a great day,
