  6. When I heard about the story of Jezebel, I thought she was very very wicked and it also put the fear of the Lord G-d in me, as I heard her end. as Elijah did he not complain to the Lord G-d that he was the only one left, and the Lord G-d answered Him, Not so, I have reserved for myself 7,000 men who have not bowed the knee to Baal." shows that the Lord G-d knows who are His.

  7. Miracles are for spiritual children. Heal the sick, raise the dead, make the lame walk, the blind see, the deaf hear, and the leper clean, what does it do in the long run? They will all die again, and not be healthy, walk, see, live, hear, or be clean. Miracles are symbols for children, and point out that there is a right path. But children run right to the next show, and forget what they have just witnessed. Miracles are only of temporary use, and are meaningless to those with true understanding. They show that God exists; but they do not reveal God. Only discernment can do that. So, those who wait on miracles might wait forever. Those who truly serve God in the way he proscribes are themselves helped by God here and now.

  8. As she used her limbs to gladden newly weds, she did the same to comfort mourners, so she performed two mitzvahs, according to the same chapter in Pirkei DeRebbi Eliezer.
