Original and interesting study of the meaning of piety amoung observant Jews of the late Second Temple period.

JEWISH- PALESTINIAN PIETY 15 Hillel; though as a Babylonian he was publicly disparaged, 1 and his sentence may have referred to such an experience of his. 2 2. As to Hillel’s description as חסיד , it should be noted that, as in Jer. 2. 2  חסד and אהבה are synonyms and signify, as לכתך in the parallel sentence shows, Israel’s active love of God, it follows that חסיד and אוהב are synonyms, and that the meaning of חסיד is the same as is expressed in R. Meir’s statement about him who studies the Torah for its own sake: 3 he loves God and loves men. Hillel’s attitude towards God is only incidentally described. It is related how his colleague Shammai thought, throughout the week, of the coming Sabbath and the food by which to honour it, and reserved the best meat which he could acquire, for that day; ‘ but Hillel had another way, for all his doings were in the honour of God, as it is written( Ps. 68. 20),  Blessed be the Lord day by day.’ 4 No doubt, 1 Jer. Pesah. VI, 33 a. 22: , אמרו לו כבר אמרנו אם יש תוחלת מבבלי מי גרם לכם לצרך לבבלי הזה : 38 ; ARN. 12, 28 a: . בבלאה טפשאח 2 After his election to the presidency of the Beth- din, he began to chide the sons of Bethera for their inability to answer the question of religious law, due to their refusal to attend the school of Shema‛ yah and ‛ Abtalyon ( Pesah. 66 a; jer. VI, 33 a. 38). By his chiding, of which the Baraitha disapproves, it accounts for his inability to answer the next question. Though of the first half of the third century, the statement of R. Alexandri in Midr. Ps. 86. 1  is an interesting illustration of the Baraitha in the text: He who hears himself cursed, and keeps silence, though he has the means to stop it, becomes a partner of God who hears Himself blasphemed by the nations, and keeps silence. So David heard himself cursed, and kept silence; therefore he calls himself חסיד , as God is called חסיד in Jer. 3. 12.  Those whom the Baraitha and ben- Zoma term עלוב , R. Alexandri calls . חסיד 3 Aboth VI, 1: . אוהב את המקום אוהב את הבריןת 4 Mekhil. R. Simeon, p. 107; Baraitha Besah 16 a; Pesik. r. 23, 115 b: אבל הלל הזקן מדה אחרת היתה בו שכל מעשיו לשם שמיס דכתיב ברוך ה יום יום . In Mekhil. 20. 8, 69 a the practice of Shammai is quoted as one commended by Eleazar b. Hananiah b. Hizkiah b. Hananiah b. Garon, see Friedmann, note 18. Another Baraitha in Besah 16 a ascribes the two practices to the two schools of the Shammaites and the Hillelites: תניא נמי הכי בית שמאי אומרים מחד שביך לשבתיך ובית הלל אומרים   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C
