    Noach:
    Chasam Sofer says that if tzohar is a window or a precious stone is dependent whether we judge Noach for praise or shame. Only a truly pious person saved on his own zechusim can see the destruction of the wicked. Lot and his wife were not allowed to look back. If he judged for praise, it was a window, otherwise it was a precious stone, so he could not see through.

    Lech Lecha:

    ื“ืข ืžื” ืœืžืขืœื” ืžืžืš – You can conclude from the fact that you can walk that there is a Universal Mover, as the Rambam says that if something moves, someone had to put it in motion. (Sefer Amudeho Shivo)

    There is a Midrash peliah, ืืžืจื™ ื ื ืื—ื•ืชื™ ืืช – ืžื›ืืŸ ืฉืฉื•ื—ื˜ื™ื ืœื—ื•ืœื” ื‘ืฉื‘ืช, the Rav Chezkuni asks how do we know that Avraham Avinu will be killed. maybe they will commit adultary? Then they wil sin at every beila, but when they kill him will be one sin. Similarly, the Ran asks why do we slaughter for the sick on shabbos and don’t give him nevelah? Then he would sin with eating every kezayis. Therefore, it is better to do one sin then multiple and since Avraham Avinu was afraid they will kill him, we slaughter on shabbos rather than give nevalah.

    Maybe through the above that we can come to the recognition of Hashem from our walking, we can explain the midrash on it which asks whether we can do kabolas ol malchus shomayim when walking, the midrash says that we cannot, we must stay still but the rest from veohavto we can either stand or walk. We canโ€™t have the proper kavono when we walk even though it brings us to come to realize the existence of Hashem.
