Pesachim 69

***************GIRSA SECTION********************
We recommend using the textual changes suggested by the Bach, Rav B. Rensburg and the parenthetical marginal notes of the Vilna Shas. This section is devoted to any *OTHER* changes that we feel ought to be made in Gemara, Rashi or Tosfos.)

[1] Gemara 69a [line 2]:
"*u'Mah Li*, Im Dachu"
The words "u'Mah Li" do not appear in the manuscripts or the early printings
until the Lublin edition (5386). They were added based upon the emendation
of the Maharshal, but they are not necessary (Dikdukei Sofrim #2).

[2] Gemara 69a [line 5]:
"d'Mah Li, Im Dachu"
The Girsa of the manuscripts is "Mah Li Dachu". The Girsa of the early
printings until the Lublin edition (5386) is "U'Mah Im Dachu". Our Gemara is
based upon the emendation of the Maharshal (Dikdukei Sofrim #4).

1) [line 2] U'MAH LI - why should this be?
2) [line 2] MACHSHIREI MITZVAH - actions performed in preparation for a Mitzvah
3) [line 5] D'MAH LI - why shouldn't it be?
4a) [line 18] AL TACHPIREINI - (a) do dot deny that you taught it to me (RASHI); (b) do not suspect me as a Kofer (denier) of your teachings (RABEINU CHANANEL)
b) [line 18] BI'SHE'AS HA'DIN - at this time that we are dealing with the matter

5) [line 32] GEMAREI IS'AKAR LEI - he could not recollect his teaching
6) [line 33] LAV ORACH AR'A - it is not proper conduct, Derech Eretz
7) [line 43] L'HAVROSO - to make him strong and healthy


8) [line 8] LO MADINAN ALAIHU - we do not sprinkle on them the water of the Parah Adumah

(a) The Torah requires that each Korban Pesach be eaten by a designated group of people. When many people share a Korban Pesach such that there is not enough meat to provide a full meal for each of them, a Korban Chagigah is brought along with it. The members of the group eat the Korban Chagigah before the Korban Pesach to ensure that they eat the Korban Pesach when they are satiated (Al ha'Sova), as the Torah requires.
(b) This Korban Chagigah is not to be confused with the Korban Chagigah that a person must bring during all festivals. Every Jewish male is obligated to come to the Azarah of the Beis ha'Mikdash on Pesach, Shavuos and Sukos, and bring an animal as a Korban Chagigah, as the Torah states, "Shalosh Regalim Tachog Li ba'Shanah" (Shemos 23:14).

*11*) [line 35] B'MU'AT - when there [are many people sharing a Korban Pesach such that there] is only a small amount [of meat that can be eaten by each person] - RASHI; alternatively, when there are not too many Korbenos Pesach being offered that day, so that there is enough time to bring the Chagigah as well (RAMBAM in Perush ha'Mishnah and Hil. Korban Pesach 10:12)
