Chapter 3, Mishna 1
The great deeds of simple people like Abba the Bloodletter. Rabbi Beroka often had conversations with Elijah the Prophet in the marketplace. Once he learned about the special place in heaven reserved for a certain prison guard and two brothers who were jesters that cheered up sad people and made peace between feuding people. Josiah took on Pharaoh Necho even though the latter said he was just passing through. Bad idea. It is a mitzvah to guard your life!
