Shame and Honor

Jerusalem was destroyed because they felt no shame before one another… Jerusalem was destroyed because they treated great and small alike. (Shabbat 119b)

Shame and honoring the great would have deterred the people from sinning. With no deterrents, sin increased until Jerusalem had to be destroyed.

Ben Yehoyada
