Behar: Chapter 8

"And if you shall say, What shall we eat in the seventh year"


Rabbi Yehuda says that one must do good in order to arouse good deeds above, and that if he is perfect with his Master he can come to no harm through the actions of others in the world. He talks about the importance of Faith, and says that Malchut performs according to the wishes and needs of the faithful; if they give charity without sparing themselves, more blessings will come to them. Thus in the sixth year enough abundance will come that there will be no lack during the seventh year when work ceases.
