Yoma 35 היא תקום

The Gemora concludes נמצא הלל מחייב את העניים רבי אלעזר בן חרסום מחייב את העשירים יוסף מחייב את הרשעים There is a hint to this in the passuk רבות מחשבות בלב איש ועצת ה היא תקום - The היא stands for הלל יוסף אליעזר. (heard from Rav Meir Bergman this morning)

The word "hee" appears countless times in Tanach. Why would an allusion to this gemara be found "punkt" in this particular possuk? There is no plausible connection between it and the thrust of the gemara here. One speaks of God's ability to disrupt Man's inentions, the other lays down the principle that circumstances do no excuse a man's obligations to study.

I think that the pshat would be that a person uses his excuses as a way of justifying his way of life and ultimately it is proven false by the עצת ה,which at times, a person's plan might even be disrupted by Hashem.

I think that's the connection, but it is just a remez.
