If you only knew - The Tzemach Tzedek said - the power of verses of Tehillim and their effect in the highest Heavens, you would recite them constantly. Know that the chapters of Tehillim shatter all barriers, they ascend higher and still higher with no interference; they prostrate themselves in supplication before the Master of all worlds, and they effect and accomplish with kindness and compassion.

And if a man strikes the eye of his manservant or the eye of his maidservant and destroys it, he shall set him free in return for his eye,

7. He raises the poor from the dust, lifts the destitute from the dunghill,
8. to seat them with nobles, with the nobles of His people.
9. He transforms the barren woman into a household, into a joyful mother of children. Praise the Lord!

לכן אל יפול לב אדם עליו ולא ירע לבבו מאד
Therefore one should not feel depressed or very troubled at heart (— he ought to be somewhat troubled by the occurrence of these thoughts, otherwise he may become indifferent to them and will cease to wage war against them; but he ought not to be sorely troubled by them),
גם אם יהיה כן כל ימיו במלחמה זו
even if he be engaged all his days in this conflict with the thoughts which will always enter his mind.
(Though he may never rise to the level which precludes their occurrence, yet he should not be depressed.)
כי אולי לכך נברא, וזאת עבודתו: לאכפיא לסטרא אחרא תמיד
For perhaps this is what he was created for, and this is the service demanded of him — to subdue the sitra achra constantly.

It appears to me that if a court sold landed property or servants belonging to orphans at an unfair price, selling entities worth 100 zuz for 200, the purchaser cannot retract. For the legal power of an ordinary individual should not be greater than that of orphans. Similarly, if a guardian of orphans sells landed property or servants at an unfair profit, the purchaser cannot retract because of the unfair profit, as is the law with regard to an ordinary individual.

Your wealth, your possessions, your merchandise, your sailors, and your mariners, those who strengthen your cracks, and those who do commerce with your merchandise, and all your warriors that are in you and in all your company that is in your midst, will fall into the heart of the sea on the day of your downfall.
Daf Yomi
אלא אמר רבא שתא קמייתא מיזדהר איניש בשטריה תרתי ותלת מיזדהר טפי לא מיזדהרRather, Rava said a different reason: A person is careful with his documentdetailing his purchase of land for the first year after the purchase, and he isalso careful for two and three years. For more time than that, he is not careful and might discard the document if no one has lodged a protest concerning his possession of the land. Therefore, the Sages ruled that after three years have passed, he can prove his ownership by means of presumptive ownership.Likutei Moharanא דַּע, שֶׁיֵּשׁ שְׁבִילֵי הַתּוֹרָה שֶׁיֵּשׁ בָּהֶם הִתְבּוֹנְנוּת גָּדוֹל מְאֹד, שֶׁאִי אֶפְשָׁר לָבוֹא לַהִתְבּוֹנְנוּת הַזֹּאת כִּי־אִם עַל־יְדֵי עֲשִׁירוּת, כְּמוֹ שֶׁבִּפְשָׁטֵי אוֹרַיְתָא "אִם אֵין קֶמַח אֵין תּוֹרָה" (אבות פ"ג), וְצָרִיךְ שֶׁיִּהְיֶה לוֹ עַל כָּל פָּנִים פַּרְנָסָה, כְּמוֹ כֵן לַהִתְבּוֹנְנוּת הַזֹּאת, שֶׁהוּא גָּדוֹל מְאֹד, צָרִיךְ שֶׁיִּהְיֶה לוֹ עֲשִׁירוּת גָּדוֹל מְאֹד, שֶׁיִּהְיֶה לוֹ הוֹן רַב, וְלֹא תֶּחְסַר כֹּל בָּהּ, כִּי צָרִיךְ כָּל הוֹן דְּעָלְמָא, לַהִתְבּוֹנְנוּת הַזֹּאת. וּבְנֵי יִשָּׂשׂכָר, שֶׁהָיָה לָהֶם זֹאת הַהִתְבּוֹנְנוּת, בִּבְחִינַת (דברי הימים־א יב): וּמִבְּנֵי יִשָּׂשׂכָר יוֹדְעֵי בִינָה; לֹא זָכוּ לָזֶה כִּי־אִם עַל יְדֵי עֲשִׁירוּת, בְּחִינַת (בראשית מט): יִשָּׂשׂכָר חֲמוֹר גָּרֶם; וְתַרְגּוּמוֹ: עַתִּיר בְּנִכְסִין. וְעַל כֵּן מֹשֶׁה וְכָל הַנְּבִיאִים הָיָה לָהֶם עֲשִׁירוּת גָּדוֹל מְאֹד, כְּדֵי לָבוֹא עַל יָדוֹ לַהִתְבּוֹנְנוּת הַזֹּאת.
