רישע והזיא
In this weeks השרפ, בקעי and ושע finally meet after many years. At least for the
moment, they embrace and seemingly reconcile their eternal differences. To appease
בקעי, ושע sends him a present – a החנמ.

At their meeting, בקעי tries to persuade ושע
to accept his present. ושע states that the
present is unnecessary, claiming בר יל שי -
I have an abundance of wealth, and
therefore, ךל רשא ךל יהי keep what is
yours. בקעי requests that ושע take the החנמ,
explaining that לכ יל שי יכו םיקלא יננח יכ-
Hashem has favored me, and I have
everything I need. י״שר points out that
ושעs words expressed arrogance; I have a
lot more than I need. בקעי, on the other
hand, spoke with humility, expressing that
he has exactly what he needs.
For all we know, both בקעי and ושע were
equally wealthy; yet the way they view
their wealth demonstrates the difference
between them. In בקעיs worldview,
whatever Hashem gives or does not give
him is יקופס יד, all he requires to serve the
ע״שבר. Everything he owns has a purpose
and is necessary for his ׳ה תדובע ; nothing
is extra. Conversely, ושע claims that he
has an abundance בר -extra, more than he
needs. This emotion stems from
As the םייח ץפח emphasizes, the הדימ of
וניבא בקעי was וקלחב חמש - happy with his
lot. ושע, on the other hand, did not have
this הדימ.
החמשב scrambled spells the word הבשחמ.
To attain this הדימ of being happy with our
lot, we need to adopt the thinking of בקעי,
לכ יל שי. We must believe that Hashem has
granted each of us exactly what we need
to serve Him properly. When we
internalize this concept, we can achieve
true happiness and serenity.
