301 - BEARING TALES


Leviticus 19:16 --You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor: I am the LORD.”

“Whoever tells tales violates a prohibition… and although not punishable by whipping, it is a grave offence, and leads to the death of many souls in Israel… For an example of the tragic consequences of this violation, read what happened after Doeg’s report concerning the priests of Nob* … Even if what he says or repeats be true, the talebearer ruins the world.”**

* I Samuel 22:6- 19)
** Hilchoth Deoth VII, 1- 2
