A Palestinian amora of the second half of the fourth century, distinguished as an original haggadist. In the midrashic literature the title Berabbi is often appended to his name (Tan., ed. Buber, Wa-yera, 46; Ḥayye, 2; Wa-yishlaḥ, 21 et passim). The following maxim, which tradition ascribes to him, may here be quoted:

(Ber. 64a.)

"Him who forces the hour, the hour will force aside. Make way for the hour, and the hour will make way for thee."
