3a) [line 24] SHICHRA - beer
b) [line 25] CHAMRA - wine

As a result, King Shaul charged Achimelech and all the Kohanim of the city Nov with treason and had them killed (ibid. 1:22:9-19).

15) [line 34] "V'HOKANUM" - "and we will hang them"

*16*) [line 36] BIKSHU LIKVO'A PARSHAS BALAK - The Gemara is discussing this here because we mentioned earlier other Parshiyos which the Rabanan considered adding to the daily prayers along with Shema (e.g. the Aseres ha'Dibros)
