Rabbi Akiba believed that tradition (Massoret) (19) is the fence to the Torah (Avoth 3:13).
(19) In Hebrew "massoret" literally means "that which was transmitted." Most commentators agree that this refers to the comments, which were added to the biblical text, and are meant to explain how the words are sometimes read in a manner different from the way that they are spelled.
