The death of Rav Chisda


"Rav Chisda was studying in yeshiva; the agent of death could not draw near, for his mouth never quieted from Torah study. The agent sat in a trree by the yeshiva building, the tree split, and Rav Chisda fell silent. So the agent defeated him."

(Talmud, Makkot 10a)

Have a great day,
