    Speaking of Dovid and the aron, what was one undeserved criticism Michal had of Dovid, and what was her punishment?

    #1159816

    Michal said Dovid was degrading himself by dancing in front of the Aron like a servant. Her punishment was she didn’t have children till the day she died.

    #1159817

    She criticized Dovid for dancing in the street before the Aron because she felt it made him look foolish. Because of this, she did not have children. (?)

    Sefer Vayikra

    Two fathers IN NEVIIM who either killed or nearly killed their sons. (There might be more but I’m just not thinking of it.) One of the ones I’m thinking of is a medrash connected to a story in neviim.

    writersoul:Torat Kohanim,but close enough.

    Isn’t it the same thing, for all practical purposes (unless you mean specifically the sections discussing kohanim)? I always learned that it was Vayikra.

    #1159824

    sam4321
    Participant

    You are correct that torat kohanim and vayikra are the same thing,but torat kohanim can refer to sifra which is halachic midrash which I was talking about.

    I could be thinking of something else, but I think that the king of Moav had the son of the king of Edom captive.

    That is according to the pshat that Moav killed the king of Edom’s son and then he retaliated.

    Aviyah (not to be confused with Aviyam melech Tehudah!)

    Why did he merit to be die a natural death, as opposed to being conquered by Ba’asha?

    #1159833

    because he allowed Bnei Yisrael to be aliyah l’regel.

    I believe it was twelve crowns— could be mistaken.

    What happened to a family’s shalom bayit that caused a huge war in which thousands were killed? (neviim)

    36 in total,Rashi- 12 came from Yismael’s nesiem,23 from Esav alufim,and one from Yosef himself(Sotah 13).

    Postsemgirl: it is brought down that Yehuda really killed Esav and Chushim only gave a blow that maimed Esav (Tosfos Gitten 55)
