Thrown Into The Fire

Tales-of-The-Midrash-logo

Yorkami, the malach in charge of hail, approached the Almighty and said, “Lord of the Universe! Permit me to descend into the fiery caldron and rescue the three saints. I will cast my icy hail into the fire and extinguish it.”

But the malach Gavriel, standing nearby, interrupted and said, “Lord of the Universe! It is no trick for the malach in charge of the hail to extinguish a fire, for everyone knows that ice and water will extinguish flames.

“Let me, instead, go down, for I am known as the malach in charge of fire. I will make the inside of the fire cool while the outside is hot. Thus people will see a double miracle; not only will they be saved, but they will be able to walk around in the fire.”

The Almighty listened attentively and then He commanded the malach Gavriel, “Go! Do as you say.”

 

They Walk Out Of The Furnace

Nevuchadnezar approached the furnace and shouted, “Ye, loyal servants of the God in heaven, come out from the furnace!

Chananiah, Mishael and Azariah walked out of the fiery furnace. All the king’s counselors, governors and ministers gathered around them in awe. The fire had not singed their hair nor touched any part of their clothes. Nor was there even the smell of fire about them.

The king then spoke aloud for all to hear, “Blessed be He, the God of Chananiah, Mishael and Azariah, who sent an angel to deliver His servants from harm so that they would not worship any god except their own G-d.

“Therefore, l make a decree that any person, nation or country which shall speak anything amiss against the God of Chananiah, Mishael and Azariah shall be cut to pieces and their homes destroyed. Because there is no other G-d Who can perform such a miracle!”

The king promoted them and made them governors of larger provinces.

Tales of the Gaonim-logo

Time passed and Zemira gave birth to a son but not even this could awaken Avinadav from his melancholy.

Yonadav was greatly impressed at the vast sums of money the young man had in his possessions.

“I do nothing worthwhile,” he modestly replied and refused to discuss any of his deeds. For the man was a very modest and humble person.

While he slept, he dreamed of Eliyahu HaNavi, who was trying to awaken him from his sleep.

“I’ll pay you whether you cure her or kill her,” shouted the loyal husband.

He lacked for nothing materialistic and could have lived the rest of his life, had he chosen to, in the luxury and laziness that dominated the Roman upper class life.

When the soldiers heard this they exclaimed happily: “You mean this is the sacred Jewish fruit? Hurry, get on the horse. You are coming with us to the palace.”

Now let me ask you, what would happen to an infantryman if he deserted his regiment and went to serve in the cavalry? He would be court-martialed, wouldn’t he?”

Dug out beneath his bunk was a little chest which he guarded with his very life. It contained a small Sefer Torah, miniature size, but kosher, and a shofar.

So began a marvelous period of good fortune. He invested the twenty-four gold pieces in many types of businesses and everything his hand touched turned to gold.

Pressing close to the cage, the Ibn Ezra shouted the words, “Shema Yisrael…”

“You can have your choice,” said the wise king. “You can choose to take this gold, 100 pieces each, or I can give you each three pieces of advice.”

“It isn’t the work,” said Eliezer. “I want to learn our holy Torah.”

He followed her advice and, before departing, the rabbanim offered him a bracha. “Aba Yudin, may the Lord return your wealth, for all the kind deeds you do.”

In their perverted justice they also declared the following law: Anyone who was injured by another so that blood flowed from his wound, was compelled to pay his attacker since he bled him!

“When I asked why she cried so much she said she came from a very religious home and feared she would be sold to a non-Jew and forced to convert.
