Description

Part of a series on the midrashim of Bereishit Rabbah related to Noach. This week we learned Bereishit Rabbah 31:3, which connects Amos 5:10 with the Torah's statement that "the land was filled with chamas because of them." This midrash suggests that the people's rejection of rebuke was what sealed their fate. Along the way, we noted the way that G-d highlighted one sin among various sins in telling Noach why He would destroy the world.
