comment Why do we get judged (Rosh Hashana) before Yom Kippur?
@YEZ I think one of the fundamental ways we understand the Torah is by judging the laws and ideas based on our own human rationale and understanding. We see these types of difficulties raised by the Avos, Moshe, Prophets, Chazal, Rishonim and Achronim. It seems to be a legitimate way to arrive at the true meaning of the Torah. That being said, I remember, more than once, the answer has been that God works differently than humans do, or we cannot understand. Very rarely though does the answer seem to be that God works anti-rationally so to speak.

@sabbahillel Makes sense, I'll have to look into that.

comment How is the Sefer Ha'Aruch supposed to be used?
@sabbahillel That thought occurred to me but I wasn't sure. Also, I saw a couple of versions. Additionally, from how I have seen the Aruch quoted by Rashi it seems like he does give a definition outright.

comment What is the precise translation of the word ארשע?
@Scimonster I'm not sure, I just don't want to assume that they used a literal translation of the word. Usually translations will take context or explanation into account when translating. I have seen other translations of this pasuk.
