Previous daf

Nedarim 65

1) [line 9] ARNEVA - a hare
2) [line 10] D'LO MEGALIS ILAVAI - that you will not reveal it (this incident) against me

3) [line 10] V'LO TEIFUK MILSA - so that the word does not get out
4) [line 11] HAVAH KA MITZTA'ER TZIDKIYAHU B'GUFEI - Tzidkiyahu experienced physical anguish [since he could not reveal the incident because of the oath, and he ardently sought the opportunity to have the entire world scoff at Nevuchadnetzar (MEFARESH) to provoke a world rebellion -- MK]

5) [line 15] BI'SHEMA DI'SHEMAYA - in the name of Heaven
6) [line 20] "YESHVU LA'ARETZ YIDMU ZIKNEI VAS TZIYON..." - "The elders of the daughter of Tziyon sit upon the ground, and keep silence; [they have cast up dust upon their heads; they have girded themselves with sackcloth; the virgins of Yerushalayim bow down their heads to the ground.]" (Eichah 2:10)

7) [line 22] SHE'SHAMTU KARIM MI'TACHTEIHEM - they removed their cushions from beneath them (To discover the fate of the Sanhedrin, see RASHI to Eichah ibid.)

10) [line 19] MAI D'AMTI LI L'FARNESO BA'HADI KULEI ALMA, MEFARNASNA LEI - my part in supporting him that I share with the community, I will provide for him (The Ran explains that the Mudar Hana'ah may benefit from this money because the Madir gives the money to the Gabai Tzedakah who has the right to give the money to any needy person of the community, not necessarily the Mudar.)

11) [line 35] EIN MESADRIN L'VA'AL CHOV - [upon collection of a debt,] Beis Din does not leave a destitute debtor [even] with his minimal needs
(a) When Beis Din collects from a person his pledges to *Hekdesh* ("Erchin" -- see Background to Kesuvos 54:11), it is learned from a verse that Beis Din does *not* take every last cent of the person who pledged. Rather, they leave a destitute person with his minimal needs.
(b) There is a Machlokes Amora'im (Bava Metzi'a 114a) as to whether or not Beis Din may force a destitute debtor to pay a *normal debt* that he owes to his friend even if he must give up his minimal needs in order to pay it.
(c) A person's minimal needs are a bed, a mat upon which to sit, the tools of his trade, food for a month and clothing that will last one year.
