S. Ross asked:

What does the Pasuk from Shemos about cursing a judge have to do with the Gemarah

S. Ross, Boston, MA USA

The Kollel replies:

The Pasuk about cursing the Nasi has the extra word "b'Amchah" which the Gemara explains as "b'Oseh Ma'ase Amchah"- if the Nasi does not follow the Torah one is not Chayav for cursing him. The Gemarah compares this to the Halachah of Kibud Av that one need not honor a father who is not "Oseh Ma'ase Amchah" However, there are contradictory Sugyos pertaining this matter and L'halachah the Shulchan Aruch writes that one is Chayav.
