Part 4 of a 7-part series. Before entering into the discussion of David and Batsheva, we look at a medrash that tells of 3 questions that King David asks Hashem, and we discover that this medrash is dealing with the same 3 themes that we have previously discussed:

1. What is the value of madness? - The power of speech;

2. What is the value of the spider's web? - Clothing and the world that lies beyond;

3. What is the value of the tzira (wasp)? - The clarity of perception.
