316 - CURSING A RULER


Exodus 22:28 -- “You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.”

A Nasi (or a judge) can forgo honor due to him, but cannot nullify a curse uttered against him. Hence the reviler is punished even if the Nasi pardons him.*

* Shoftim, Hilchoth Sanhedrin XXVI, 6

Whoever reviles the sages will have no portion in the World to Come.*

* Mada, Hilchoth Talmud Torah VI, 11
