111. Rabbi Aba opened the discussion, saying: "And Manoach said to his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen Elohim" (Shoftim 13:22). Even though Manoach was not aware of his actions, AS IT IS WRITTEN, "FOR MANOACH KNEW NOT THAT HE WAS THE ANGEL OF ELOHIM" (SHOFTIM 13:16), he still said, it is written, "For man shall not see Me and live" (Shemot 33:20). We have certainly seen Him, and therefore we shall certainly die. Yet, we who have seen and have had the privilege of seeing that light that accompanied us shall NEVERTHELESS stay alive, because the Holy One, blessed be He, sent him to us, to teach us the secrets of the Wisdom that he chose to reveal . How happy is our lot!
