Mishlei 14:5 - A Liar is a False Witness ... Really? (Part 1)
 
עֵד אֱמוּנִים לֹא יְכַזֵּב וְיָפִיחַ כְּזָבִים עֵד שָׁקֶר:

Length: 46 minutes
Synopsis: This morning (10/25/23), in our morning Mishlei shiur, we began learning what may very well be the most obvious sounding pasuk I've ever seen. Robert Alter comments: "This is one of those proverbs that verges on tautology." Accordingly, we had to make an extra effort to find chidushim (novel insights) - and chidushim we found! Tomorrow (בג"ה) we'll see what the meforshim have to say.
