Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter 4 Mishnah 10 (1) Rabbi Yishmael used to say: Do not act as a judge alone, for none may judge alone except God; and do not say: "Accept my view," for they are permitted to, but not you. Avot 4:10 Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter 4 Mishnah 10 (2) Do not act as a judge alone - Always endeavour to be part of a tribunal (of at least three), so you will be able to discuss the relative merits of the arguments and the different aspects of the case. HaChassid Yaavetz Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter 4 Mishnah 10 (3) Do not act as a judge alone (yechidi) - Yechidi can also mean "The Unique One, i.e. God". Hence, do not stand in judgement on God and the way He runs His world. We should lovingly accept His judgement. Matnat Avot Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter 4 Mishnah 10 (4) For none may judge alone except God - Although God consults with His Heavenly Court (in order to teach man humility, that they should consult with peers), He alone renders the verdict. Magen Avot & Gemara Sanhedrin 38b Ethics of the Fathers: Chapter 4 Mishnah 10 (5) Do not say: "Accept my view," for they are permitted to, but not you - Even about things that seem obvious to you, do not expect your colleagues to yield to your position; bolster your own argument with logical proofs and offer refutation of their view. Rashi
