yoma 77

even angels need to learn when to cross the great divide
and when not to deliver the message

(story of the angel Gabriel who scattered the embers of the people, as a punishment for not rebuking the wicked amongst them. when Gabriel returns that he did it, he is taken out behind the curtain and hit for delivering a bad message. later in the page is discussed when is it permitted, and when is it not permitted, to cross a river on yom kippur)
