Question
Kings II, 2 regarding Elisha . And he turned around and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of God. And two she-bears came out of the forest and tore apart forty-two boys of them. What does Rashi say about this? I know it is a lot to ask, but the answer is needed ASAP for a paper due very soon. Thank you so so much.
Answer
Rashi comments on the phrase 'And he saw them' - he saw that neither they or their offspring had even the most minute of good in them. Bhatslacha Rabbi Baruch Kitay
