Ethics of the Fathers – Interlinear Translation
Ethics of the Fathers - Interlinear Translation Pirkei Avos - Ethics of the Fathers, contains the moral and practical teachings of some sixty sages whose lives embraced nearly five centuries. Though their sayings would seem to carry no greater weight than that of their considerable stature, the very first mishnah of the tractate teaches that this is not so. "Moses received the Torah from Sinai and transmitted it," we are told. The traditions contained in Pirkei Avos originated no less at Sinai than did the Ten Commandments. This interlinear version provides a clear and concise definition on a word-by-word basis beneath each word.
