DVAR TORAH

 

The Midrash comments that the word “devarim” (“words”) with which our parsha begins – “These are the words/devarim which Moshe spoke to all of Israel” – may be an allusion to a “devora” – bee. Explains the Midrash, that just as a bee dies after it stings, similarly, Moshe died just after he concluded “stinging” Bnei Yisrael

 

Wrote Rabbi Yehuda Leib Ginsburg, in his Yalkut Yehuda that the Midrash also meant to explain that Moshe was pained when he criticized the people.   The fact that he, like a bee, died after “stinging” the people is symbolic of the fact that throughout the process he felt pained by having to reprimand the people whom he loved and cared for.

 

Which, he explained, conveys the message that words of criticism must be spoken with the utmost sensitivity and compassion.  Too often, when we need to criticize, we relish - to some extent – the opportunity to point out somebody else’s faults and present ourselves as superior.   We enjoy the role of moral guardian, which allows us to congratulate ourselves for being better than somebody else.   The Midrash teaches that when we need to “sting” a child, a student, or any other person, it must hurt.   We must recognize the shame and unease our words cause the other person, and, to whatever extent possible, try to feel the emotional pain that we are inflicting.
