Hebrew translation:

293. רַבִּי פִּנְחָס הָיָה הוֹלֵךְ לִרְאוֹת אֶת בִּתּוֹ, אִשְׁתּוֹ שֶׁל רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, שֶׁהָיְתָה חוֹלָה, וְהָיוּ הוֹלְכִים אִתּוֹ הַחֲבֵרִים, וְהוּא רָכַב עַל חֲמוֹרוֹ. עַד שֶׁהָיָה הוֹלֵךְ בַּדֶּרֶךְ, פָּגַע בִּשְׁנֵי עַרְבִים. אָמַר לָהֶם, בְּשָׂדֶה זֶה הִתְעוֹרֵר קוֹל מִימֵי הָעוֹלָם. אָמְרוּ לוֹ, מִימֵי הָעוֹלָם אֵין אָנוּ יוֹדְעִים, מִיָּמֵינוּ אָנוּ יוֹדְעִים. שֶׁהֲרֵי יוֹם אֶחָד הָיוּ אוֹתָם לִסְטִים מְקַפְּחִים דְּרָכִים שֶׁל אֲנָשִׁים בְּאוֹתוֹ שָׂדֶה, וּפָגְעוּ בְּאוֹתָם יְהוּדִים וְרָצוּ לְקַפְּחָם, וְנִשְׁמַע מֵרָחוֹק בַּשָּׂדֶה הַזֶּה קוֹל הַחֲמוֹר הַזֶּה שֶׁנָּעַר פַּעֲמַיִם, וּבָאָה שַׁלְהֶבֶת אֵשׁ בְּאוֹתוֹ קוֹל (בְּאוֹתוֹ שָׂדֶה) וְשָׂרַף אוֹתָם, וְנִצְּלוּ אוֹתָם יְהוּדִים. אָמַר לָהֶם, עַרְבִים, בְּדָבָר זֶה שֶׁאֲמַרְתֶּם לִי, תִּנָּצְלוּ יוֹם זֶה מִלִּסְטִים אֲחֵרִים שֶׁמְּחַכִּים לָכֶם בַּדֶּרֶךְ.


Chodesh Tov

Zohar Balak

Rabbi Pinchas was with friends on his way to visit his daughter, who was ill. She was the wife of Rabbi Shimon. He was riding his donkey, and while on the way, he saw two Arabs. He asked them if in this field arose a voice from old days of the past. They said; we don’t know about the old days, but from our times, we know that one day bandits that were robbing and killing people in this field were about to assault some Jews on this path, but in the distance, they heard the sound of this donkey that you ride on that brayed twice. A flame of fire came together with the sound and burned them, and these Jews were saved. Rabbi Pinchas told them, Arabs, that you will be saved today from other robbers that await you along this way because of the merits of what you told me.

Hashem makes miracles for us every day. The ‘miracles’ that we are aware of are the ones that actually half a miracle. If one gets involved in a serious accident and comes out with a few scratched, he can say, I experienced a great miracle. The car is a total loss, but I have only a few bruises. The bigger miracle is the one that arrived at his home safe without any road events.
Another lesson is that when a person helps others, he actually help himself because whatever support he gives to others, he receives the same rewards.
