What about a "Vorpal Sword"? :
?דער באשעפער לאווט מיך אייביג. וויפיל לאוו איך עהם
My Creator loves me at all times. How great is my love for him?

From the wiki:
"In the novel Mirror, Graham Masterton explains that "vorpal" means "Victory Over Ruin, Pestilence And Lust".
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

wow, you guys are true erudites...
Baby steps.
If the road is pulling you down, it's a sign that you are going uphill, so just press harder on the gas!

Have a great day - unless, of course, you made other plans.

Sanhedrin Daf Zayin:

http://hebrewbooks.org/shas.aspx?mesechta=24&daf=7&format=pdf (all the way on the bottom)

It's talking about a Dayan being afraid of making a mistake, but the analogy to our situation is obvious.

איש חרבו על ירכו מפחד בלילות - שיר השירים ג:ח

The Chazal which I quoted on this possuk is in Yevamos 109b and Sanhedrin 7a, and refers specifically to Dayanim who are judging a Din Torah.

There is however another possuk:

חגור חרבך על ירך גבור וגו' - תהלים מה:ד

which the Zohar Hakadosh (Beraishis 240b) explains as follows:

One who wishes to avoid desecrating his Holy Bris, should be nimble and prepare himself, and when the evil YH tries to overpower him, he should imagine a sword on his thigh that will punish those who violate that area.

Disclaimer: For those who cannot handle such strong words, please ignore. I am presenting it only for those (like myself) who derive much chizuk from these holy words.

You mean Vayechi, no?

And there is a beautiful suggestion right after that over there, to daven before one goes out into the street, for Hashem to save him and even protect him from stuff in the street. Tremendous. That's surrender of the temptations mamesh. Davening wholeheartedly before , require a giving up of the potential temptations up....if he really does stay clean out there as a result.

If on the other hand, if one is not sincere (as of course most of us good people are not sincere), then he (we) will discover the truth about our sincerity as soon as he/we walks out there - when he is feasting his eyes on the bodies and skin out there in just a couple of minutes...

Admin put these lines here cuz he likes 'em:

"Get off the 18-Wheeler and onto a tricycle!"
"The heck with me, what can I do for you?"
"I do not particularly care exactly which "lav" suicide is. I'm not interested in it for other reasons!"

Re: hello my friends.... 11 Jun 2012 16:51 #139235

Yes, Vayechi (I used the customary page number). And thanks for pointing out the awesome piece about davening before going in the street, which I have not noticed.

מאן דנפיק בארחא יתקן גרמיה בצלותא דמאריה ויזדרז בהאי צדק חרב עלאה בצלותא ובעותין עד לא יפוק לארחא כדכתיב (תהלים פ"ה) צדק לפניו יהלך וישם לדרך פעמיו

Well, really in our home we prefer a certain type of pickled herring, which I categorically refuse to specify, for fear that it might destroy my anonymity, c"v.

So what good is your using your real first name if your not honest and open about your type of herring.

The herring, but not the (Hungarian) name.
