Ki Tetze: Chapter 8
One's fear of sin precedes one's wisdom

The sages of the Mishnah have explained that action is more valuable than speech. They also said that a person acquires wisdom if he fears sin first and that the Torah will rest on him if he first does all the precepts. If he reverses these then he comes from the aspect of Judgment. Suffering and Judgment must also precede mercy: 'as the suffering so the reward.' We hear what Moses' role will be during the last exile.
