Tazria: Chapter 29

"And he shall break down the house"


Rabbi Yosi once entered a house, and then heard a voice saying he would be harmed; he left in fear. Rabbi Chiya wonders why the idol worshippers who live in that house are not harmed, and Rabbi Yosi says it is because they are all from the other side and it will not harm them. We also learn that the wicked can dwell safely in a house that was built on righteousness.
