Mishlei 11:7 - The Hopeless Death of the Rasha

בְּמוֹת אָדָם רָשָׁע תֹּאבַד תִּקְוָה וְתוֹחֶלֶת אוֹנִים אָבָדָה:

This evening (12/20/21), in our Monday Night Mishlei Shiur, we enjoyed a respite from the "teeth-breaking" pesukim about the tam and the yashar with a nice pasuk about the death of a rasha! The reading, translation, and questions were fairly straight-forward, and we had success in working out two approaches and bringing them to fruition with the help of the meforshim. Both ideas are practical in very different ways.
