Mishlei 26:9 - A Thorn in the Hand of a Drunkard (Part 1)
חוֹחַ עָלָה בְיַד שִׁכּוֹר וּמָשָׁל בְּפִי כְסִילִים:
This morning (1/12/22), in our Morning Mishlei shiur, we began our analysis of the third and final pasuk in our series on the topic of "how fools use Mishlei." We came up with three approaches of our own, the third of which roughly corresponded to that of Saadia Gaon and Ibn Kaspi. Tomorrow (בג"ה) we'll learn more meforshim on this pasuk - and the Meiri on all three.
