G-d And Man - A Book of Jewish Thoughts


G-D AND MAN

RABBI AKIBA81 said: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image of God; but it was by a special love that it was made known to him that he was created in the image of God.
Everything is foreseen, yet freedom of choice is given; and the world is judged by grace, yet all is according to the amount of the work.

BEN AZZAI82 said: Despise not any man, and carp not at anything; for there is not a man that has not his hour, and there is not a thing that has not its place.

HILLEL83 said: If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And being for myself only, what am I? and, if not now, when?
Separate not thyself from the community. Trust not in thyself until the day of thy death. Judge not thy neighbour until thou art come into his place.
ETHICS OF THE FATHERS.

ISRAEL AND HIS REVELATION

THE religion of the Bible is well said to be revealed, because the great natural truth, that ‘righteousness tendeth to life’, is seized and exhibited there with such incomparable force and efficacy.

All, or very nearly all, the nations of mankind have recognized the importance of conduct, and have attributed to it a natural obligation. They, however, looked at conduct, not as something full of happiness and joy, but as something one could not manage to do without.

But ‘Zion heard of it and rejoiced, and the daughters of Judah were glad, because of thy judgements, O Eternal!’ Happiness is our being’s end and aim, and no one has ever come near Israel in feeling, and in making others feel, that to righteousness belongs happiness!

As long as the world lasts, all who want to make progress in righteousness will come to Israel for inspiration, as to the people who have had the sense for righteousness most glowing and strongest.

This does truly constitute for Israel a most extra-ordinary distinction.

‘God hath given commandment to bless, and He hath blessed, and we cannot reverse it; He hath not seen iniquity in Jacob, and He hath not seen perverseness in Israel; the Eternal, his God, is with him.’

MATTHEW ARNOLD, 1875.
