(a) Abaye, quoting the B'nei Yeshivah, sets out the order of the daily
Avodos, according to Aba Shaul. The second arrangement of wood on the
Mizbe'ach was for the Ketores.
Where about on the Mizbe'ach was it placed?
(b) What exactly was its purpose? How often was it used?
(c) Which arrangement of wood ...
(d) Bearing in mind that the Mizbe'ach ha'Zahav went hand in hand with the
Menorah, which two Avodos had still to precede the Shechitah and the
Zerikah of the Tamid?
- ... preceded it?
- ... followed it?
(a) The Zerikah of the blood of the Tamid was followed by the Hatavas Sh'tei
Which other Avodah still preceded the bringing of the limbs on to
(b) This was followed by two kinds of flour.
Which two kinds of flour?
(c) What was the last Avodah that still pertained to the Tamid shel Shachar?
(a) On Shabbos, they then brought the Korban Musaf.
What were the last two
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Tzav "ve'Hiktir *Aleha* Chelvei
ha'Shelamim"? Which Korban is "Aleha" referring to?
(a) "Hi ha'Olah al Mokdah al ha'Mizbe'ach Kol ha'Laylah" refers to the
Ma'arachah Gedolah, and "ve'Eish ha'Mizbe'ach Tukad Bo" to the Ma'arachah
Sheni'ah shel Ketores.
Why does the Ma'arachah Gedolah take precedence
over the Ma'arachah Sheni'ah shel Ketores?
(b) For which logical reason might we have thought that the Ma'arachah
Sheni'ah shel Ketores should take precedence over the Ma'arachah Gedolah?
(c) How do we counter that argument?
(d) What sequence do we learn from the Pasuk "u'Vi'er Aleha Etzim" ("Aleha",
've'Lo Al Chaverta')? Why is "Aleha" not required for itself?
(a) The Torah writes "ba'Boker, ba'Boker" both with reference to the Sidur
Sh'nei Gizrei Etzim and to the clearing of the ashes from the Mizbe'ach
Abaye knew of no logical reason as to why clearing the ashes from the
Mizbe'ach ha'Ketores should precede the preparation of the five lamps.
What reason does Rava (quoting a principle of Resh Lakish) give for it?
So why does the former take precedence over the latter?
(b) What is the Sidur Sh'nei Gizrei Eitzim Machshir?
(c) Then why should it precede the clearing of the ashes of the Mizbe'ach
(d) Ravina answers (the initial Kashya) that having begun with the various
Ma'arachos, it makes sense to finish with them before the next Avodah
(clearing the ashes from the Mizbe'ach ha'Ketores).
How does Rav Ashi
answer the latter Kashya?
Answers to questions
(a) Where about were the Shulchan, the Menorah and the Mizbe'ach ha'Ketores
placed in the Heichal?
(b) Why was the Mizbe'ach not placed in line with the other two?
(c) What was the purpose of the two and a half Amos ...
(d) Which Halachah in Hilchos Tefilin do we learn from Resh Lakish's
principle (not to pass over Mitzvos)?
- ... between the Shulchan and the wall?
- ... between the Menorah and the wall?
(a) We learnt earlier that the Sh'nei Gizrei Eitzim precedes Dishun
Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi because of 'Machshir Adif'. Considering that the Torah
writes twice "ba'Boker" by Hatavas Chamesh Neros, once by Dam ha'Tamid and
twice by Hatavas Sh'tei Neros, how do we use one of the two "ba'Boker"
written by the Sh'nei Gizrei Eitzim ...
We based the previous set of Derashos on the fact that "ba'Boker ba'Boker"
by the Sh'tei Gizrei Eitzim is redundant.
(b) Rav Papa asks Abaye why we don't rather add the one "ba'Boker" to the
Dishun Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi, to place it before the Dam ha'Tamid and the
second "ba'Boker" to Dam ha'Tamid, to place it before the Hatavas Chamesh
Neros (changing the order to Dishun Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi, Dam ha'Tamid,
Hatavas Chamesh Neros and Hatavas Sh'tei Neros).
- ... to determine that Hatavas Chamesh Neros precedes the Dam ha'Tamid?
- ... to help determine that the Dam ha'Tamid precedes the Hatavas Sh'tei Neros?
What is the answer to
(c) In fact, this answer is only valid according to Resh Lakish, but not
according to Rebbi Yochanan, who derives this break from the double
expression "ba'Boker ba'Boker".
Why is the answer valid according to Resh
lakish? What reason does Resh Lakish give for breaking up the preparation of
the Menorah into two?
(d) Why can we not move the Dishun Mizbe'ach ha'Penimi to *after* the Dam
ha'Tamid, to place *it* between the two Hatavos?
Why do we not use it to place
the Sh'tei Gizrei Eitzim before the Ma'arachah Sheni'ah shel Ketores?
(a) Why does the Hatavos Chamesh Neros precede the Hatavas Sh'tei Neros, and
(b) What do we learn from the Pasuk in Ki Sisa "be'Hetivo es *ha'Neros*
Yaktirenah (written in connection with the Hatavas Sh'tei Neros)?
(a) Abaye in the name of Aba Shaul, places the Hatavas Sh'tei Neros before
the Ketores, because of the Pasuk "be'Hetivo es ha'Neros Yaktirenah" (first
the Neros and then the Ketores).
Answers to questions
From where does he know that the Ketores
precedes the bringing of the limbs on to the Mizbe'ach?
(b) How does the Beraisa learn from "ha'Olah" (in Tzav) that bringing the
limbs on to the Mizbe'ach precedes the Minchah?
(c) From where do we learn that the Minchah precedes the Chavitin, the
Chavitin, the Nesech, and the Nesech, the Musaf?
