Get rid of
anger - save yourself from evil.
| As it says : Take away anger from
your heart - and remove evil from your body! The
evil spoken about here, is Gehenim - as it says,
" And bad people will be punished on the day
of evil !"
The Ramban is explaining how good it is for a
person to remove anger from his heart, and to be
free of feelings of complaints. When a person
feels anger in his heart and gets upset when
things do not go his way, even if he does not
shout, he always has these bad feelings inside of
himself. "Remove evil from your body"
teaches us that by removing the anger and
speaking pleasantly, his mind will be at rest and
he will find that he is not always getting upset.
At the same time, he is saving himself from
"evil" or Gehenim. Therefore, when a
person is about to get angry, he should stop and
think. What will I lose if I do not get angry ???
What will I gain if I do not get angry ??? - You
will be saved from Gehenim !!
