When Israel stood to receive the Torah, God said to them: “I am giving you my Torah. Give to me good guarantors that will guard it, and I shall give it to you.”
They said: “Our ancestors are our guarantors.”
God said: “Your ancestors are not sufficient guarantors. Yet bring me good guarantors, and I shall give you the Torah.”
They said: “Ruler of the Universe, our prophets are our guarantors.”
God said: “The prophets are not sufficient guarantors. Yet bring me good guarantors, and I shall give you the Torah.”
They said: “Here, our children are our guarantors.”
God said: “They are certainly good guarantors. For the sake of your children, I give you the Torah.”
