Pinchas: Chapter 83

"According to the lot"


Rabbi Shimon begins by telling us that the lot to which David was attached is the tree, Malchut. Rabbi Aba talks about the voice from the firmament, saying that this firmament is nourished from the voice. We learn about the stone of Yisrael that descended from its place under the divine Throne, and upon which the lot is written. Rabbi Elazar concludes by saying that those who follow righteousness are the ones who seek God.
