Laws of Lashon Harah

Halacha 1 – Negative Commands – 6:57


1. Someone who speaks against his fellow transgresses a negative command as it says (Vayikra 19:16), “Do not go as a talebearer (Rachil) in your nation.” What is a Rachil? Someone who carries things and goes from this person to that saying, “Ploni said this about you, and I heard that ploni did that to you, even if it is true. This person is among those who destroy the world. There is a much worse sin than this, namely, Lashon Harah, which is included in this negative command. This is someone who speaks of the bad of his fellow even if the says the truth, but someone who say lies is considered a slanderer of his fellow.

 א: המרגל בחברו עובר בלא תעשה שנאמר (ויקרא י”ט ט”ז) :”לא תלך רכיל בעמך”. איזהו רכיל? זה שטוען דברים והולך מזה לזה ואומר : כך אמר פלוני עליך. וכך וכך שמעתי על פלוני שעשה לך. אף על פי שהוא אמת, הרי זה מחריב את העולם. ויש עוון גדול מזה עד מאוד והוא לשון הרע והוא בכלל לאו זה. והוא המספר בגנות חברו אף על פי שאומר אמת. אבל האומר שקר נמצא מוציא שם רע על חברו.
