    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.

    Parashas Vayeshev

    Rashi says that Yaakov Avinu wanted to live in peace. HKBH said. isn’t it enough for tzadikim to have the world to come, they also want this world, so the worry about Josef fell on him. The question is, why does Hashem not want tzadikim to have both worlds?
    Explains the Ksav Sofer and the Chanukas Hatorah (Rebbe R’ Heshel) comparing a tzadk and a rasha. For the tzadik, his whole life is a worry that maybe he does not have olam habo, so he constantly improves himself to gain olam habo and the same time since his life is a worry, he loses his olam hazeh. The rasha either he is sure he has olam habo or doesn’r believe in it, so he does nothing improve and thereby he loses it, but he gains olam hazeh as he has no worries. Yaakov Avinu wanted to live now worry free by being sure that he has olam habo, so he had to worry about Josef thereby worrying about his olam habo as he can only have olam habo if all his children stay alive.
