Repent One Day Before Your Death

But nobody knows when they will die! Exactly…

Rabbi Elizer said, “Repent one day before your death.”

His disciples asked him, “But does a person know on what day he is going to die?”

“All the more reason, therefore, to repent today, lest one die tomorrow. In this manner, one’s whole life will be spent in repentance.”

– Babylonian Talmud, Shabbat 153a
