Torah Assistance: Who Does God Love/Dislike?

The Holy A person, blessed be He, enjoys 3 people: Just one who does not get angry a single who does not get drunk and just one who is forgiving.

The Holy A person, blessed be He, hates three people today: A single who states just one assertion with his mouth and implies an additional in his heart, i.e., a hypocrite just one who is aware testimony about a different particular person and does not testify on his behalf and one who observes a licentious subject done by one more man or woman and testifies against him alone. His testimony is meaningless, as he is the only witness for that reason, he just offers the personal a negative status.

The Talmud opinions: This is like that incident in which Tuveya sinned with immorality, and Zigud arrived by yourself to testify about him right before Rabbi Pappa. Rabbi Pappa instructed that Zigud be lashed. Zigud stated to him: Tuveya sinned and Zigud is lashed? He mentioned to him: Of course, as it is composed: “A single witness shall not rise up in opposition to a man” (Deuteronomy 19:15), and you testified in opposition to him on your own. You have just supplied him a lousy status.

Rabbi Samuel bar Rabbi Isaac claimed that Rabbi claimed: Whilst one particular who sees a further committing a sin really should not testify versus him by himself, he is nevertheless permitted to detest him, as it is stated: “If you see the donkey of he who hates you lying underneath its load” (Exodus 23:5). The Talmud clarifies this verse: What is the that means of he who hates you mentioned in the verse? If you say it is referring to a gentile who hates you, but wasn’t it taught in a Talmudic passage that the phrase: He who hates, of which the Torah spoke, is a Jew who hates you, not a gentile who hates you?

Rather, it is evident that the verse is referring to a Jew who hates you. But is 1 permitted to detest a fellow Jew? But isn’t it composed: “You shall not detest your brother in your heart” (Leviticus 19:17), which plainly prohibits the hatred of another Jew? Alternatively, probably you will say that the verse is referring to a scenario in which there are witnesses that he executed a sin. However, in that situation, everybody else ought to also loathe him. What is distinctive about this distinct person who hates him? Instead, is it not referring to a scenario like this, when he observed him accomplish a licentious make any difference? He is thus permitted to despise him for his evil behavior.

Rabbi Nachman bar Isaac mentioned: Not only is this permitted, it is even a commandment to despise him, as it is stated: “The worry of God is to dislike evil” (Proverbs 8:13).

Rabbi Acha, son of Rabbia, mentioned to Rabbi Ashi: What is the Regulation with regard to no matter whether a single who observed an individual sin may inform his instructor so that he too will detest him? Rabbi Ashi said to him: If the university student is familiar with that he is trusted by his Rabbi as two witnesses, and therefore his statement will be recognized, he ought to tell him, and if he is not trustworthy by his Rabbi as two witnesses, he ought to not explain to him (Pesachim 113b).
