WHAT teachest thou. Rabbi,
That man shall do and live ?
Grudge none; set out unsparingly
Thy best red wine, and give.
Thy counsel is unplain; —
How give if wine be not ?
Sell all thou hast, till knowledge stain
The edges of the Pot.
Then when the jar is filled —
What doth thy counsel say ?
Empty it till the last be spilled;
Grudge lest one drop should stay
Nay, Rabbi, answer me —
Poor were I as before! —
What Jar except it emptied be,
Think you, is filled with more ?
