Chizkuni, Genesis 6:5:1 Hezekiah ben Manoah, France, 1250-1310
If God created human beings with the foreknowledge of limitations, why did God create in humans in the first place?
"Why had God bothered? The answer is that everything is under the control of heaven except man’s decision to [either] live in awe of the Creator or to defy the Creator. Seeing that God had decided to create a creature equipped with free will, God had simultaneously abrogated the right to interfere."
In what ways does Ezekiel's reasons support or not support assumptions you had about why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed? What is the text saying about punishment regarding outright sins versus not doing a mitzvah?
