Jerusalem Talmud, Kiddushin 4:12
תלמוד ירושלמי מסכת קידושין פרק ד דף סו טור ב /ה"ט
ר' חזקיה ר' כהן בשם רב עתיד אדם ליתן דין וחשבון על כל מה שראת עינו ולא אכל
R. Chizkiyah said in the name of Rav: You will one day give reckoning for everything your eyes saw which, although permissible, you did not enjoy. [Translation from Edited for gender neutrality]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why will we be judged for denying ourselves permissible pleasures? What is wrong about this behavior?

2. What pleasures are permitted? Which are prohibited? Why?

3. How does this text guide us in our approach to the material?

Time Period: Rabbinic (Maccabees through the Talmud)
