Eikev, Devarim 8:9 Avaneha Barzel

In this week's parsha the passuk says
אֶרֶץ אֲשֶׁר אֲבָנֶיהָ בַרְזֶל
and please see Taanis 4a.

Cleverer still in that it is meaningless to those who would misunderstand it as boastful.

Thank you!
I don't follow this post regularly (maybe I should), but it so happened that I found this one on Rosh-Chodesh Elul, a good time as ever for והעבר רעה מבשרך

I assume you are the Eli of Torah ugedula bemakom echad. In any case, that is a very good passuk to remember now, both as the Ramban uses it in his Igeret based on Nedarim 22, and on how the Meiri in Taanis 4 uses it. Thanks.
