Clouds, Fear, Death and Charity

Ten matters were created, each stronger than the other:

Rock is strong, but iron breaks it.
Iron is strong, but fire melts it.
Fire is strong, but water extinguishes it.
Water is strong, but clouds carry it.
Clouds are strong, but the wind disperses it.
Wind is strong, but the body holds it.
The body is strong, but fear breaks it.
Death, however, is mightier that all the aforementioned.
Tzedakah (charity) is more powerful - it rescues even from death.
