Understanding the words of the Torah


On the difficulty of properly understanding the Torah's text:

"Rabbi Yehudah said: One who translates a biblical sentence according to its literal form is a liar, and one who adds interpretation on his own is a blasphemer."

(Talmud, Kiddushin 49a)

Have a great day,
