Ki Tetze: Chapter 25

"and a handmaid that is heir to her mistress"


We are told that the sages of Mishnah disagree regarding the giving of the Torah, one thinking that it was given on the third day and another thinking that it was given on the seventh day. Mention of the stars and the moon and the sun and the planets are brought in to clarify the argument. We learn that there are twelve constellations from the good side and twelve from the evil side. Lastly we are told that the wicked are the forefathers of impurity and that an evil man is considered to be dead.
