Quotation

Question

Shalom Rabbi!
Could you tell me from where is the text:”im lo le ma’ani az le ma’anam”, from Tanach or some Tefilah? And who is saying it, and about who? in what context?
Thank you very much and Shabat Shalom !

  1. I am not familiar with that exact quote. There is a quote in the Book of Jeremiah, 14:7, that reads “…Aseh l’ma’an Shemecha…”. There is also a statement of Rashi’s that is found in Chronicles 2 6:42 which reads “v’Im lo l’ma’ani aseh l’ma’ancha” which are the closest that I could find.
