Mishlei 22:5 - The Perilous Path of the Crooked (Part 1)

צִנִּים פַּחִים בְּדֶרֶךְ עִקֵּשׁ שׁוֹמֵר נַפְשׁוֹ יִרְחַק מֵהֶם:

This morning (5/16/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we began learning a very strange-sounding pasuk. Despite having only three people in shiur, we came up with a really good explanation which answered all of our questions. We briefly took a look at how Chazal interpret our pasuk, which we hope to revisit tomorrow, and we concluded with the Malbim's radically different (Galenic) interpretation. Tomorrow we'll review what we did today, and then delve into the meforshim.
