(a) Abaye prefers the opinion which gives precedence to the *Musafin* over
the *Bazichin* rather than vice-versa - because the Torah writes in Emor
(with regard to the Bazichin) "*be'Yom* ha'Shabbos Ya'archenu", and, in the
same way as "ba'Boker" denotes an *earlier* time, "ba'Yom" denotes a *later*
(b) The 'Gezeirah Shavah' "Chukah" "Chukah" helps to give precedence to the
Bazichin over the Musafin. The Gezeirah Shavah does not extend as far as
giving the Bazichin precedence over the Nesachim too - because for that, the
word "be'Yom" is effective - to place the Bazichin *after* the Nesachim.
(a) The Tana of our Mishnah places the Ketores between the Dam and the
Evarim. According to Aba Shaul, he ought to have placed it between the
Hatavas Sht'ei Neros and the Evarim.
(b) The author of our Mishnah is in fact the Rabbanan of Aba Shaul. they did
not say between the Dam and the *(two) Neros*, because they were not
particular about the details (since technically, the statement is correct).
See Tosfos, DH 'Le'olam', as to why the Gemara did not alternatively
establish our Mishnah like Aba Shaul, explaning it in the same way as it
explained it according to the Rabbanan.
(a) Rebbi Yochanan learns from the Pasuk in Pinchas "ke'Minchas ha'Boker
u'Chenisko Ta'aseh" - that, just like the morning Ketores preceded the
Nesachim, so too, should it precede the Nesachim of the Tamid shel Bein
(b) It does not however, precede the *Evarim* of the Tamid shel Bein
ha'Arbayim (as it does in the morning) - since the Torah does not write
"ke'*Evrei* ha'Boker, but "ke*'Minchas* ha'Boker".
(a) The Rabbanan prefer to learn the Nesech (by the Tamid shel Shachar) from
the Tamid shel *Bein ha'Arbayim* - because that is where it (the Pasuk
"ve'Nisko Revi'is ha'Hin") is written.
(b) Rebbi learns from the continuation of the Pasuk "la'Keves ha'Echad" -
that "ve'Nisko Revi'is ha'Hin" refers to the Tamid shel *Shachar*, which the
Torah calls "Echad" (as opposed to the Tamid shel Bein ha'Arbayim, which it
(c) The Rabbanan learn from "*ha'Echad*" - that when one gives a Korban to
Hashem it should be from the best (since 'Echad' has a connotation of
'Meyuchad' - special).
(d) The Rabbanan require *two* Pesukim to teach us this lesson - one by a
*voluntary* Korban (which needs to be good quality in order to be accepted
as a gift), and the other, by an *obligatory* one (which needs to be good
quality, in order to fulfill one's obligation).
(a) Our Mishnah permits placing heated metal bars into the cold Mikveh on
Yom Kipur for a Kohen Gadol who is finicky. The problem with this is that it
involves Tziruf (since placing boiling metal into cold water strengthens it
- and is considered a Melachah on Shabbos and Yom-Tov).
(b) We initially get round this by establishing our Mishnah when the metal
bars were not heated to the extent that placing them into cold water will
result in Tziruf.
(c) Abaye answers that, even if the metal bars *did* reach the stage of
Tziruf, it will be permitted to place them into the Mikveh on Yom Kipur -
because the Tziruf is performed unintentionally (and 'Davar she'Eino
(a) Rebbi Yashiyah learns from the Pasuk in Shemini "Besar Orlaso" - that
the Mitzvah of Milah over-rides the prohibition of cutting away the mark of
So we answer that Abaye's ruling 'Davar she'Ein Miskaven, Asur' (like Rebbi
Yehudah), is confined to Isurim d'Oraysa (such as the La'av of cutting away
Tzara'as), but does not apply to Isurim de'Rabbanan, such as Tziruf.
(b) Why do we need a Pasuk, asks the Gemara? Is it not obvious, since the
sin is performed unintentionally? (Note: Tziruf is not 'Pesik Reisha'. See
Tosfos DH 'Hani Mili' - near the beginning of Daf 35a.)
(c) Abaye answers that the Pasuk is needed according to Rebbi Yehudah, who
holds 'Davar she'Ein Miskaven, Asur' - in other words, the Pasuk is
redundant according to Rebbi Shimon (who holds Davar she'Ein Miskaven,
Mutar') - which means that Abaye must hold like Rebbi Yehudah.
(d) But how can Abaye now rule that 'Davar she'Ein Miskaven, Asur', when he
just said that Tziruf is permitted because it is 'Davar she'Ein Miskaven'.
(a) They then took the Kohen Gadol to the Beis ha'Parvah - to Tovel his
second Tevilah (in the Kodesh).
(b) He made Kidush Yadayim ve'Raglayim ...
- ... according to the Tana Kama - *before* he removed his clothes.
- ... according to Rebbi Meir - *after* he removed them.
(a) According to Rebbi Meir, the Bigdei Lavan that he wore in the morning
were made of linen from Pilusin worth *twelve* Manah (twelve hundred Zuz) -
and those that he wore in the afternoon, *eight* Manah (eight hundred Zuz).
(b) The Bigdei Lavan on the *morning* refers to the bringing the Kaf and the
Machtah *into* the Kodesh Kodshim, those that he wore in the *afternoon*, to
taking them *out*.
(c) According to the Rabbanan, the Kohen Gadol's morning Bigdei Lavan were
worth *eighteen* Manah (eighteen hundred Zuz), and those that he wore in the
afternoon, *twelve* Manah.
(a) The money for these clothes came out of public funds.
(b) The Kohen Gadol was permitted to use more expensive clothes than those
specified - provided he paid the difference from his own pocket.
