The Heavenly academy was learning about a certain Tzara'as: Hash-m said Tahor, and the rest of the Heavenly academy said Tamei. They decided that Rabah would decide the matter.he is the most learned scholar alive in matters of Tzara'as and Tum'ah . The angel of death was sent to take him. He could not, for Rabah never ceased learning. A wind made a big noise among the reeds; Rabah thought it was the army searching for him. Rabah preferred to die than to be taken by the kingdom. He died amidst saying 'Tahor, Tahor.' A voice from Heaven: Happy is Rabah. His body is Tahor, and his soul left amidst saying 'Tahor'.
