Mishlei 11:19 - True Tzedakah and Its Opposite

כֵּן צְדָקָה לְחַיִּים וּמְרַדֵּף רָעָה לְמוֹתוֹ:

Last night (5/9/22), in our Monday Night Mishlei Shiur, we learned a tough pasuk - tough because of its wording, and because of its generality. It took us a little while to find our footing, but when we did, we ended up developing three (or, at least, two and a half) ideas. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to delve into the meforshim, but there's nothing stopping anyone from doing so on their own!
