Ask A Question on the daf
Previous daf Nazir 25
1) EXTRA SACRIFICES
(a) Question: Money for the sin-offering is mixed in (how can
all the money be used for burnt-offerings)?!
2) SIN AND GUILT-OFFERINGS WHICH CANNOT BE OFFERED
(b) Answer #1 (R. Yochanan): This law is a tradition from
Moshe from Mount Sinai regarding a Nazir.
(c) Answer #2 (Reish Lakish): "For all their Nedarim
(commitments to bring a sacrifice) and Nedavos (animals
declared to be sacrifices)" - the Torah said that the
surplus of Nedarim should be Nedavah.
1. We understand, according to R. Yochanan, the
tradition only applies to unspecified money.
(d) Question: According to Reish Lakish, the verse should
apply even to specified money!
(e) Answer (Rava): From Tana d'Vei R. Yishmael, we see that
it does not apply to specified money.
1. (Beraisa - Tana d'Vei R. Yishmael): "Only your
sacrifices that will be to you and your Nedarim" -
the verse speaks of the offspring of sacrifices and
Temurah (an animal onto which one wanted to transfer
the Kedushah of a sacrifice).
2. The Torah commands "You will bring them to (the
3. Suggestion: Perhaps we bring them to the Temple, and
deny them food and water, so they will die!
4. Rejection: "You will offer your burnt-offerings, the
flesh and the blood" - this teaches, we treat
Temurah of a burnt-offering as a burnt-offering; the
child of a Shelamim as a Shelamim.
5. Suggestion: Perhaps the child of a sin-offering and
Temurah of a guilt-offering are likewise as a
sin-offering and guilt-offering!
6. Rejection: "Only (burnt-offerings and Shelamim)".
7. (R. Akiva): You do not need to expound "Only" - we
learn from "It is a guilt-offering" - it retains its
(a) (Beraisa) One might have thought, we bring them to the
Temple, and deny them food and water, so they will die -
the Torah says, "You will offer your burnt-offerings".
(b) Question: Why would one think they must die - such a
tradition from Moshe from Sinai only applies to
(c) Answer: If not for the verse, one might have thought that
children of sin-offerings can die where they are, but
children of other sacrifices must be brought to the
Temple to die.
1. We hear, this is not so.
(d) (Beraisa): One might have thought that the child of a
sin-offering and Temurah of a guilt-offering are likewise
as a sin-offering and guilt-offering - the Torah says,
"Only (burnt-offerings and Shelamim)".
(e) Question: Why is a verse needed - a tradition from Moshe
from Sinai teaches that the child of a sin-offering must
(f) Answer: Indeed, the verse is only needed to teach about
(g) Question: (The verse is not needed) - there is also a
tradition from Moshe from Sinai regarding guilt-offerings
- any case where a sin-offering would die, a
guilt-offering grazes (and when it gets a blemished, it
is sold, and the money is used for Nedavah)!
(h) Answer: If we only had the tradition, one might have
thought that it should not be offered, but one who
offered it is not liable.
(i) The verse teaches that one who offers it transgresses a
(j) (Mishnah - R. Akiva): You need not expound "Only" -
another verse says "It is a guilt-offering" - it retains
(k) Question: The verse is not needed - there is a tradition
from Moshe from Sinai - any case where a sin-offering
would die, a guilt-offering grazes!
(l) Answer: Yes, the verse ("It is a guilt-offering") is not
needed to teach that it grazes; rather, it teaches Rav's
1. (Rav): A guilt-offering that was set aside to graze
and was slaughtered to be a burnt-offering is
2. If it was not set aside, it is not Kosher - the
verse says "It is", it retains its status.
