Mishlei 22:4 - The Benefits of Humility (Part 3)

עֵקֶב עֲנָוָה יִרְאַת י"י עֹשֶׁר וְכָבוֹד וְחַיִּים:

This morning (5/11/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we continued working on yesterday's pasuk. We learned three similar approaches from Metzudas David, Ralbag, and the Malbim, then attempted to synthesize what we learned into a fully formed idea, factoring in other approaches that were raised over the past two days. Did we succeed? I believe so! But even if we didn't, we definitely arrived at a greater understanding of the interrelationship between humility and fear of Hashem.
