Shoftim Perek 16
by in
At the end of perek 16 Shimshon asks Hashem to give him the merit of one of his eyes, which had been knocked out by the Plishtim, in order to give him the strength to bring down the roof of the party. How could he ask for reward for his eyes having been poked out […]
Shmuel Alef Perek 8

The Gemara in Sanhedrin tells us that Bnei Yisrael became obligated in three mitzvos upon entering the Land of Israel: to appoint a king; to destroy Amalek; and to build a Mikdash (in that order). If it is such a positive thing to appoint a king, why did Shmuel get angry with Bnei Yisrael when […]
Shmuel Alef Perek 15
by in
In this perek, Shaul is commanded to annihilate the nation of Amalek, even the animals. The Mefarshim explain that the concept that Amalek represented, (doubt and happenstance), hides Hashem’s presence in this world. Thus, even the slightest manifestation of this, even their livestock, required destruction. Thus, we do not want anyone even mentioning anything connected […]
Shmuel Alef Perek 20

Those who merit to focus during the weekly Haftara would have noticed that perek 20 is the chosen haftara for when Rosh Chodesh falls on Sunday; the aptly-named haftaras machar chodesh. However, upon first glance, the only thing that the entire perek has to do with Rosh Chodesh are the two words ‘machar chodesh’ (tomorrow […]
Shmuel Alef Perek 28

Rav Miller of Gateshead would relate the following lesson from the Shaul episode, in the name of Rav Dessler. Regarding the negativity of the middah of jealousy, we are told that it ‘removes a person from this world’ (Avos 4:28), and the Gemara (Brachos 7b) expresses Dovid Hamelech’s warning (Tehillim 37) ‘do not be jealous […]
Shmuel Beis Perek 6
by in
The Pasuk says “וירכיבו את ארון הʹ על עגלה חדשה,” that Dovid drove the ark of Hashem on a new wagon (6:3). Chazal teach us that since Dovid said in Tehillim “זמירות היו לי חוקיך” (Your laws (the Torah) were like songs to me)”, he was punished for forgetting the mitzvah that the Ark must […]
Understanding the Episode of Dovid and Batsheva
by in
A cursory glance at the pesukim of Shmuel Beis perek 11 seems to portray Dovid Hamelech in a blindingly bad light. We are told that Dovid was on his roof and saw Batsheva bathing via a window in her house. Dovid then sends for her, makes her pregnant, and ‘bumps off’ Batsheva’s husband Uriyah by […]
Shmuel Beis Perek 24

We are not allowed to count Jews directly by assigning a number to each individual, but instead we have to use an alternative method, such as ‘hoshiya es amecha…’, or we count via objects – for example, the half-shekel donations given to the Mishkan by each male Jew between 20 and 60 years old. Indeed, […]
Shmuel Beis Perek 8

In Perek 8 the Radak cites Chazal, who explain that Tzadok and Achimelech were not really Kohanim as the pasuk (8:17) implies, but rather, Talmidei Chachamim. If so, why does the pasuk call them Kohanim? ‘To tell us that just as a Kohen gets gifts first, so does a Talmid Chacham.’ Rashi (Bamidbar 20:1) asks […]
