Tazria: Chapter 9

"Neither is there a rock like our Elohim"


We learn from Rabbi Shimon that there are holy beings other than Elohim - angels, and the holy children of Yisrael, and yet they depend for their holiness on Elohim; He does not depend on theirs. We hear two explanations for the title verse, one of which compares the rock to the fetus God formed into which He blew the spirit of life. The other explanation says that the verse merely means that Elohim has power and dominion over everything.
