Recent comments to "Frogs (Vo’eira)"

See the Steipler, Birkas Peretz, parashas Va’eira, 1.

He asks: Why did the Egyptians continue hitting the frogs? How could they not have learned after a few attempts to destroy the frogs by violence, that all it would accomplish is to make the infestation worse?

The Steipler explains that with each blow they truck the frogs, their anger and frustration built. Anger robs man of the ability to think clearly. It blinds.

Barukh shekivanta.
