newly translated teachings Noam Elimelech Parshas Bo

Some newly translated teachings for you from the upcoming new book with new
stories and Torahs that is being worked on

Noam Elimelech Parshas Bo
Hashem Smote with Plagues Based on Our Merits

"VaYomer Hashem El Moshe Neta Yadcha Al Eretz Mitzraim BeArbeh - And Hashem
spoke to Moshe - stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt with

We should take notice of the strange wording BeArbeh - with locusts. It
seems to me we can explain this based on the verse in VaEra (9:15) where it

the my hand and I shall smite you with the plague of dever," because this is
proper as we explained Kana"l. "However for this reason I have brought you
in order that you tell of My name." I transformed the letters diber - spoken
into barad - hail and not into dever - plague. This is also the meaning of
BeArbeh - because I said "Harbe Arbe - I will greatly increase your seed and
offspring." (Bereshis 22:17) Kana"l as I explained above. This is easy to
