Mishlei 6:23 - Mitzvah is a Lamp and Torah is Light (Part 1)
Play • 44 min

נְצֹר בְּנִי מִצְוַת אָבִיךָ וְאַל תִּטֹּשׁ תּוֹרַת אִמֶּךָ.
קׇשְׁרֵם עַל לִבְּךָ תָמִיד עׇנְדֵם עַל גַּרְגְּרֹתֶךָ.
בְּהִתְהַלֶּכְךָ תַּנְחֶה אֹתָךְ בְּשׇׁכְבְּךָ תִּשְׁמֹר עָלֶיךָ וַהֲקִיצוֹתָ הִיא תְשִׂיחֶךָ.
כִּי נֵר מִצְוָה וְתוֹרָה אוֹר וְדֶרֶךְ חַיִּים תּוֹכְחוֹת מוּסָר.

This morning (12/17/20 at YBT), after a week's hiatus, we returned to our exploration of the "Chanukah pesukim" (i.e. pesukim in Mishlei which can be homiletically associated with Chanukah). We began working on the famous comparison of the mitzvah and Torah to a lamp and light. We quickly realized that this pasuk can't be learned in isolation, but ought to be learned in its local context of 6:20-23. Today we tried coming up with our own approach, and our plan for tomorrow is to consult the meforshim.
