“When the day comes that I must account for my life, I will not be asked: ‘Why weren’t you Moses?’ I was not equipped to be Moses. But I dread the question, ‘Why weren’t you Zusia?’ —Reb Zusia of Anipoli

"The source" makes it sound like it is the primary one.

comment Meaning of the phrase “Tzur Chevli B'eit Tzarah” near the end of Adon Olam
Is there any other place that a צור חבל or חבל צור or something like that is an idiom for the idea of an anchor in English which is itself an idiom for a source of security and stability. צור alone, or מעוז צור I'm aware of, but not something that adds חבל.

comment Is “pikuach nefesh” on shabbos “hutrah” or “dichuya”?
Perhaps you should put that into the question: You are seeking a review of sources about this famous question. A lot of them are in the footnotes at the link, if someone wants to actually do a literature review, it is a good start.

This is a rather famous Yeshivish Chakira. Answering this is basically opinion based. But for a long discussion with all the footnotes there ...

comment Can Jews eat hunted animals?
You understand of hunting is an anachronism. The word can be about trapping as well. And that is not an exclusively religious claim.

comment What is the source of my father's Hebrew name? It is כלאוונא
@Sarge, I couldn't really find much about that, but that part of the question really goes off-topic, IMO. Jewishly, it is the foreign language name that substitutes for one of those two Hebrew names. Why people connected to either of those names, I don't know.

@MarkCantor, My only point was that it is in the context of a Get that such names get attention in Jewish books.

Would you say that the Rambam would regard him as a false prophet? If so Devarim 13:4 "... G-d is testing you ..."

Would the author of the piyyut have written it out with vocalization, or is any vocalization subsequent interpretation? The parallel to Psalm 18 is certainly interesting, but the word isn't necessarily understood as pain there either (e.g. Rashi brings it is as one of two options). But +1 either way.
