Kaunfer, Goldenberg, Cohen, Clark, and Borovitz respond to the biblical text "And you should do what is right and good in the eyes of God." Their responses discuss acting righteously while being good to oneself; the importance of common sense, sensitivity, and compassion; "right and good" as referring to ethical conduct beyond the rules that God imposed; the importance of looking at the whole picture of a situation rather than blindly following the law; and the process of doing right and good as well as the goal or action.
