Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
וַיִּגַּ֨שׁ אֵלָ֜יו יְהוּדָ֗ה וַיֹּאמֶר֮ בִּ֣י אֲדֹנִי֒ יְדַבֶּר־נָ֨א עַבְדְּךָ֤ דָבָר֙ בְּאָזְנֵ֣י אֲדֹנִ֔י וְאַל־יִ֥חַר אַפְּךָ֖ בְּעַבְדֶּ֑ךָ כִּ֥י כָמ֖וֹךָ כְּפַרְעֹֽה׃
Then Judah went up to him and said, “Please, my lord, let your servant appeal to my lord, and do not be impatient with your servant, you who are the equal of Pharaoh.”
Yehudah was so angry that he had blood streaming down his right eye (and some say both of his eyes) and a hair in the middle of his chest stood straight up and pierced all 5 garments he was wearing.
His chest became covered with pieces of copper that he would pluck off and chew with his teeth.
(Midrash, Bereshit Rabbah, Tanchuma 3)
