Chapter 1, Mishna 6
Continuing our discussion of biblical personalities who were punished or rewarded measure for measure for their actions. Samson’s sexual prowess was a gift and a curse. From Tamar we learn it is better to jump into a fiery furnace than to humiliate another person publicly. Abraham caused others to praise God’s name by redirecting their thanks for his famous hospitality to the Holy One. Absalom was vain about his hair, and his hair was his undoing after he rose up against his father, King David.
