Encourage guests to speculate or act on the theme, but keep it moderate

Ostracon found in Khirbet Qeiyafa, an artifact that has been interpreted to express Judaic teachings
The ostracon, which serves as teleport object back to ground from 273m level is documented here, here and here among other places.  In a reading by Gershon Galil, it appears to say the following:

  • you shall not do [it], but worship the [Lord].
  • Judge the sla[ve] and the wid[ow] / Judge the orph[an]
  • [and] the stranger. [Pl]ead for the infant / plead for the po[or and]
  • the widow. Rehabilitate [the poor] at the hands of the king.
  • Protect the po[or and] the slave / [supp]ort the stranger.
