How does Rebbi Yossi learn that it is Mutar from the Pasuk in
Matos "Ish ki Yidor Neder ... "?
(b) What does Rebbi Ya'akov learn from the continuation of the Pasuk " ...
(c) What does Rebbi Yossi learn from "la'Hashem"?
(d) Why does Rebbi Yossi prefer to include a Chatas ve'Asham from

he'Nadur than the latter, seeing as both are obligatory?
(a) Although Rebbi Ya'akov concedes to the D'rashah "Ish ki Yidor Neder ...

and ke'Imra' (and the same with the other cases in our Mishnah, 'Dirim
Eitzim, Ishim ... ') like Rebbi Meir?
(b) What problem do we then have with the Seifa, which concludes 've'Chulan,
Lo Ochal Lach, Mutar'?
(c) We already solved this problem above on 11b.
What is the basic answer?
(a) The Tana Kama of our Mishnah validates 'Korban, Olah, Minchah ...
she'Ani Ochal Lach'.
On grounds does Rebbi Yehudah disagree?
(b) What is the Chidush? Why does Rebbi Yehudah need to repeat this Halachah

Why is that?

(c) How do we reconcile this with our Mishnah 'ha'Korban she'Ochal Lach

Having mentioned ...
(b) And having mentioned 'Neveilos u'T'reifos' (which are also Tamei
[presumably, the Tana mentions T'reifos, which are not Tamei, because of
Neveilos, since they often appear together]), why does the Tana need to
mention 'ki'Shekatzim u'Remasim'?
- ... 'ke'Basar Chazir', why did he see fit to mention 'ka'Avodas Kochavim'?
- ... 'ka'Avodas Kochavim', why did he see fit to mention 'ke'Oros Levuvin?
(c) What do all the cases in the Mishnah have in common? Why is the Neder
