Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Weekly series with new shows available every Tuesday.
Rabbi Elazar HaKappar says: Blessed is He, before Whom there is no iniquity, no forgetfulness, no favoritism and no acceptance of bribery, for everything is His.
Rambam explains “no acceptance of bribery” to mean that HaShem’s judgment is not affected by the fact that a person has done many mitzvoth. He explains the Mishnah to mean that no matter how many mitzvoth one has credit, one is punished for each transgression and rewarded for every mitzvah, because mitzvoth and sins do not cancel each other.
