Chapter 1, Mishna 6
Caleb’s lineage. Miriam’s multiple names? Miriam’s famous line to father Amram: Your decree is worse than Pharaoh’s. Once Amram decided they were going to reverse the divorce and get re-married to Yocheved, it was joyous. She was 130 years old and still called a daughter? Some women were so righteous that spared pain of childbirth. Moshe’s original name was Tovia? To righteous people their money is more precious to them than their bodies, because they are meticulous to be sure that they never use something that isn’t theirs. Pharaoh’s daughter Basya immersing in river to become Jewish? Why use term “amata” for extending her arm? If something is impossible, lesson from Pharaoh’s daughter is try anyway. Moses would not nurse from Egyptian wet nurses. Why was Miriam’s sister called Aaron’s sister, not Moses’ sister?
