Mishlei 11:17 - Mishlei on Kindness and Cruelty

גֹּמֵל נַפְשׁוֹ אִישׁ חָסֶד וְעֹכֵר שְׁאֵרוֹ אַכְזָרִי:

Last night (4/4/22), in our Monday Night Mishlei Shiur, we learned one of the few pesukim in Sefer Mishlei about chesed. This one was a real doozy to translate! Thankfully, we came up with six or seven of our own approaches to the pasuk and as many in the meforshim. There is still a lot more to be said here, especially if we take our pasuk to be teaching Mishlei's fundamental stance on chesed.
