(a) What does ...
1. ... Rav learn from the Pasuk in Divrei Hayamim (regarding the servants of David ha'Melech) "le'Chol D'var ha'Machlokes Chodesh be'Chodesh ... "?
2. ... Rebbi Yochanan learn from the Pasuk in Melachim (regarding the building of the Beis ha'Mikdash) "Chodesh Yihyu ba'Levanon, Sh'nayim Chodashim be'Veiso"?
(b) Why did ...
1. ... Rav decline to learn from Rebbi Yochanan's Pasuk?
2. ... Rebbi Yochanan decline to learn from Rav's Pasuk?
(a) What does ...
1. ... Rav learn from the Pasuk in Yechezkel "ve'Atah ben-Adam Ha'anach be'Shivron Mosnayim ... "?
2. ... Rebbi Yochanan learn from the Pasuk there (regarding the destruction of the Beis ha'Mikdash) " ... al Mah Ata Ne'enach, ve'Amarta, el Sh'mu'ah Ki Va'ah, ve'Namas Kol Leiv, ve'Rafu Kol Yadayim, ve'Chahasah Kol Ru'ach ve'Chol Birkayim Teilachnah Mayim"?
(b) Why does ...
1. ... Rebbi Yochanan decline to learn from Rav's Pasuk?
2. ... Rav decline to learn from Rebbi Yochanan's Pasuk?
(c) Why did the Nochri mention the Beis Hamikdash to the Jew with whom he was walking?

(d) What did the Jew reply to the Nochri, when he expressed surprise at the fact that his statement seemed to have had no effect, and that the Jew continued to walk as fast as before?

(a) If "Shav Lachem Mashkimei Kum ... Ochlei Lechem ha'Atzavim" (Tehilim) refers to people who are earning a Parnasah, how does Rav Yitzchak interpret the continuation of the Pasuk "Kein Yitein li'Yedido Sheinah"? To whom does this refer?

(b) Why did this cause Abaye to reject Rava's contention that the Tayalim referred to in our Mishnah (whose Onah is every day) pertains to Talmidim who learn with their Rebbe in their hometown, and who sleep at home?

(c) So Abaye pointed to Rav Shmuel bar Shilas.
What was Rav Shmuel bar Shilas' profession? Why was he the epitome of someone whose Onah is every day?

(d) What is the significance of the statement 've'Lo Chalif P'risteka de'Malka a'Bavei'?

(a) Ravin cited the Mefanki Ma'arva as people who were Chayav Onah every day.
Who were the 'Mefanki Ma'arva'?

(b) Rebbi Avahu was supported by two Avadim in the bathhouse, and Rebbi Yochanan, by Rav Ami and Rav Asi (this should probably be Rebbi Ami and Rebbi Asi) as he climbed a ladder.
What else did they both have in common?

(c) How do we know that they were incredibly strong?

(d) How did Rebbi Yochanan explain the fact that he had two men supporting him in spite of his phenomenal strength?

(a) How do we reconcile our Mishnah ('ha'Po'alim Sh'tayim be'Shabbos) with the Beraisa which states 'Achas be'Shabbos'?

(b) Rav Chanan asked Abaye whether the Tana included all those cases in our Mishnah that are less often than twice a week, in the Din of Neder, which allows a week anyway.
What did Abaye reply?

(c) Why should that be, considering that the Onah of a sailor, to quote the most extreme case, is only once every six months?

(d) Rava bar Rav Chanan asked Abaye whether an ass-driver was permitted to became a camel-driver (seeing as, on the one hand, his earnings increased, but on the other, his Onah decreased) without his wife's permission.
What did he reply?
