1) [line 6] DIGLEI MIDBAR - the encampment of Benei Yisrael in the desert
3) [line 10] PUSYA - the width
5) [line 13] K'LEVUD DAMI
(b) A Halachah l'Moshe mi'Sinai states that even though the Mechitzah is not complete, there are times when we may consider it complete for Halachic purposes (Sukah 5b).
(c) One of these cases is Lavud (lit. a branch or connection). This Halachah states that when there are not three full Tefachim between the Mechitzah and the surface (or object)next to, above or below it, we consider it to be a complete Mechitzah in which the surfaces or objects are connected without any gaps. (The space that is provided by the Halachah l'Moshe mi'Sinai of Lavud is measured along with and as a part of the existing segment of the partition.) In our Gemara the result of the Halachah of Lavud is that the entire area underneath the wagons is considered Mekurah (covered).
6) [line 14] A'CHODAN - on their sides, which are one Amah thick
9) [line 21] B'ATBA'EI - (a) the space between the beams had to be wide
enough to accommodate the *Taba'os* (rings) of the beams, so they were
placed in four piles, two piles back-to back on either end of the wagon,
with the rings facing outward. The space in between the second and third
pile was an Amah, which allowed room for the rings and is not Lavud;
10) [line 1] YESEIDOS - the wagons were made with a bottom made of planks with spaces greater than three Tefachim between them
11) [line 4] "TAMU NICHRASU" - "The waters that came down from above stood and rose up in a heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Tzaresan, and those that came down toward the sea of the Aravah, the Salt Sea, finished and were cut off" (Yehoshua 3:16) - The verse describes the splitting of the Jordan River when Benei Yisrael entered Eretz Kena'an. It is used to prove that the word "Tamim" means that the Kerashim were tapered towards the top.
12) [line 7] D'LEISU SHALMIN - that they should bring whole beams
15a) [line 13] PUSYA - width
17) [line 16] D'SHAFI LEHU KI TURYAN - he planes them (the corner beams of the western wall) to slope like mountains, (so that they do not stick out)
18) [line 20] L'IGRA - for the roof
20) [line 31] "CHATZI HA'YERI'AH HA'ODEFES, TISRACH [AL ACHOREI HA'MISHKAN]" - "the extra half curtain shall extend beyond the back of the Mishkan" (Shemos 26:12) - According to Rebbi Yehudah, the two Amos (half) of the last curtain lay on the ground behind the Mishkan. According to Rebi Nechemyah, only one Amah lay on the ground.
21) [line 32] TISRACH ME'CHAVROSEHA - it shall extend beyond the other curtains. According to Rebbi Nechemyah, the verse only describes how much of the last curtain of the Yeri'os Izim extended beyond the last curtain of the Yeri'os ha'Mishkan, and does not describe how much of it lay on the ground.
22) [last line] SHIPOLEHA - her train
24) [last line] CHALULIM - hollowed out in the middle
