Chumash - Tzoraas HaBatim Good or Bad
Submitted by SMC  Answered by Rabbi Shaul Rosenberg
Question:
Answer:

Maskil L'David, in his Pirush on Rashi, answers that although Tzaraas is an affliction that comes to one who speaks Lashon HaRa and is stingy, it was a good sign at the time when the Jews entered Eretz Yisroel. At that time, it showed them where all the treasures that the Emoriim hid were to be found. However at all other times it was an evil sign.

Some say that only someone who said Lashon HaRa needs to find the treasure through the unpleasant means of tzoraas, for a Tzaddik would find more enjoyable ways to discover his treasure.
