Shmuel II Chapter 19- 7 Tammuz- (Monday July 3)

Shmuel II - Chapter 19 with Rashi (English)

Reb Chaim Shmulevitz told that he often would stand by Yad Avshalom and say a tefillah. He was once asked, "Wasn't Avshalom a rasha - a wicked man? Why pray at his graveside?"
He replied, "Contemplate Avshalom - he tried to kill his father; and yet when he died, his father David was brokenhearted and prayed for him. This helps me understand what is meant by a 'father's mercy,' and I'm ready to beseech G-d: 'As a father has mercy on a son, so should G-d have mercy on us!'"”
