- The sutra
- In Roptchitz, the town where rabbi Naftali lived, it was the custom for rich people whose houses stood isolated, or at the far end of town, to hire men to watch over their property by night. Late one evening, when rabbi Naftali was skirting the woods which circled the city, he met such a watchman walking up and down. 'For whom are you working?' he asked.
- The man told him, and then inquired in his turn: 'And for whom are you working, rabbi?'
- The words struck the zaddik like a shaft. 'I am not working for anybody just yet,' he barely managed to say.
- Then he walked up and down beside the man for a long time. 'Will you be my servant?' he finally asked.
- 'I should like to,' the man replied, 'but what would be my duties?'
- 'To remind me,' said rabbi Naftali.
