Acharei Mot: Chapter 13

The moon in its fullness


Rabbi Yesa says that during Solomon's days the moon was full, and God gave wisdom and knowledge to Solomon. Reading that there was peace between Solomon and Hiram, Rabbi Shimon says that Hiram had announced himself to be a deity until Solomon persuaded him otherwise with his wisdom. We learn that all those who study the Torah at night have their images carved above before God, who pays attention to them.
