The Torah says: "They will guard their souls very much."
"Beware and take good care of your soul." (Devarim-Deut 4.9)
As we have already explained previously, the best we can do in this difficult time is to trust the Blessed Creator, to have the complete certainty that it is Hashem who directs everything and that only Hashem is the one who saves us.
But something very important that we must know: We are responsible for our lives and we must take care of ourselves, as it is written in the Torah:
"They will save your souls very much"
Our Sages received from the Oral Tradition that these verses serve to teach us that health care is a Precept, and several of them maintain that it is a "Precept of abstention" that the Torah directly orders, as teaches the Talmud:
Because the Torah says:
"Beware (Hishamer) and keep your soul much ...", in every place where the Torah says "Hishamer" (Beware) it is speaking of a Precept of abstention.
Also the sages of the Tosafot (who are the commentators of the Talmud) consider that the obligation to protect our bodies from any harm, this is learned from the verse: "They will keep your souls much" or from the verse "Guard your soul very well" .
The Chatam Sofer deduces from this verse that the prohibition against exposing oneself to danger comes directly from the Torah and not from a Rabbinical opinion:
Exposing oneself to danger is a prohibition of the Torah verse: "they will guard your souls very much" and the Sages have the obligation to see that all fulfill them, as the Tanach says in Ezekiel 3,18:
"and if you do not rebuke the wicked so that he turns away from his evil path and thus saves his life, I will make him die for his iniquity but I will demand his blood from your own hand ")
Let's take care of ourselves so that Hashem takes care of us!
