Mishlei 26:8 - The Dangers of Honoring a Ksil (Part 2)

כִּצְרוֹר אֶבֶן בְּמַרְגֵּמָה כֵּן נוֹתֵן לִכְסִיל כָּבוֹד:

This morning (1/11/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we continued our analysis of yesterday's pasuk. After recapping a related idea from last NIGHT's Mishlei pasuk (11:9), we recapped our approaches from yesterday and then learned two explanations: one from Metzudas David on our pasuk and the other from Rabbeinu Yonah on Avos 4:1. Both meforshim took our mashal in ways we hadn't even considered yesterday. Tomorrow (בג"ה) we'll begin the last pasuk in our "sidequest" sugya before taking a two week break.
