Negative Commandment 237 (Digest)
Participation in a Loan in which Interest is Charged

"You shall not impose interest upon him"Exodus 22:24.

We are forbidden from taking any active part in a loan that involves interest. We may not be the guarantor or witness for such a loan, nor may we act as the scribe who records it. (In addition to the prohibition against lending with interest, the borrower transgresses this prohibition too).

The soul above awaits the time it will be privileged to descend into a body. For the soul senses how much it can accomplish here below; it can attain the level of "delighting with G-d." So what is everyone waiting for?
