Chapter 1, Mishna 11, 12
Is there a righteous person who is not good? Is there a wicked person who is not evil? Why do certain mitzvot get rewarded in this world and the next? What do they have in common? What does it mean that penalty for sin goes beyond its principal? What is meaning of phrase “and will think upon his name”? If someone intends to do a mitzvah but can’t, does he get credit for it? Are we punished for thoughts? What do you do if you can’t stop yourself from committing transgressions? Who is considered to be one who does not care about his Creator’s honor? Why shouldn’t you gaze at a rainbow? How do our actions affect the entire world? Can one mitzvah wipe away many sins – and vice versa? Is study or action the greater mitzvah?
