Yom Kippur Quotes

If a person fasts for his/her sins, and goes again and does the same things, who will listen to her / his plead. And what has (s)he gained by humbling him/herself?

Sirach or Ecclesiasticus 34:26

Peace, peace to the far and to the near!

Isaiah 57.19

If a wo/man says, "I will sin and repent and then I will sin again and repent again," s/he is not in a position to repent. Likewise if s/he says: I will sin, and the Day of Atonement will atone for me," the Day of Atonement will not atone for her/ him.

M Yoma 8:9

Who can say "I have purified my heart, I am free of sin?
There is no man on earth so righteous that he never sins!"
Cast away the evil you have done and get yourself a new heart and a new spirit.

Prov. 20:9

The work of righteousness shall be peace
and the effect of righteousness quietness and confidence for ever.
