the golden rule

The word with the largest gematria in the whole Chumash is used in this week's parashah, when Datan and Aviram ask Mosheh why should he rule them. (תשתרר - gematria 1500)

From this I learn the tremendous potential of our speech. The 'heaviest' word (in the gematria sense) in all of the Five Books of Mosheh could have been used to say something about HaShem's Kingship in the world, and instead it was used to challenge the word of HaShem.
