A punishment for lashon hara


"Rabbi Levi said: In the future, Gd will place idolaters into Gehennom, challenging them, 'Why did you persecute My children?'

"The idolaters will reply: It came from them! They would come to us and speak harmfully [lashon hara] about each other!

"At which point Gd will place both in Gehennom."

(Midrash, Bereishit Rabbah 20:1)

Have a good day,
