"Another teaching about \"A son of an Israelite woman went out\" - Regarding that which is written \"I returned and saw all of the oppression\" (Kohelet 4:1), Daniel the Tailor interpreted the verse as referring to Mamzerim. \"The tears of the oppressed\", the fathers of these sinned, and these [the children] are shamed, how does it concern them? So too, this one's father committed incest, what is the child's sin, and how does it concern him? \"And they have no comforter\", rather \"their oppressors are empowered\", this refers to Israel's Great Sanhedrin, who comes at them with the power of Torah, and pushes them away in the name of \"a mamzer will not enter the community of the Lord.\" (Devarim 23:3). \"They have no comforter\" - says the Holy Blessed One: it is upon me to comfort them; in this world they are cast aside, but in the future, as Zecharia said, \"I see a people all of gold\", as it is written (Zechariah 4:2) “I see a menorah all of gold, with a bowl [gulah] above it\". Two speak; one says \"an exile [gulah]\" and one says \"a redeemer [goalah]\". According to the one who says exile, that they were exiled to Babylon and the Shechina was exiled with them, as it says (Isaiah 43:14) \"For your sake I send to Babylon\". And according to the one who says a redeemer [goalah], a redeemer [paroka], as it says (Isaiah 47:4 \"Our redeemer, the LORD of Hosts is Their Name\", and it is written (Micah 2:14) \"One who makes a breach goes before them; they enlarge it to a gate... [and leave by it]. Their king marches before them, God at their heads\".",

A diver descended to bring it /b up, and the b snake came and sought to swallow the ship. A raven came /b and b cut off its head, /b and b the water turned into blood /b due to the enormousness of the snake. b Another snake came, took /b the precious stone, b and hung it /b on the dead snake, b and it recovered. It returned /b and again b sought to swallow the ship, /b and yet again b a bird came and cut off its head, took that precious stone, /b and b threw it onto the ship. We had with us these salted birds; we placed /b the stone b on them, /b and b they took /b the stone b and flew away with it. /b ,§ Apropos the stories of large sea creatures, the Gemara discusses the large sea creatures mentioned in the Bible. b The Sages taught: /b There was b an incident involving Rabbi Eliezer and Rabbi Yehoshua, who were traveling on a ship, and Rabbi Eliezer was sleeping and Rabbi Yehoshua was awake. Rabbi Yehoshua trembled, and Rabbi Eliezer awoke. /b Rabbi Eliezer b said to him: What is this, Yehoshua; for what /b reason b did you tremble? /b Rabbi Yehoshua b said to him: I saw a great light in the sea. /b Rabbi Eliezer b said to him: Perhaps you saw the eyes of the leviathan, as it is written: “And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning” /b (Job 41:10)., b Rav Ashi said: Huna bar Natan said to me: Once we were traveling in the desert, and we had a thigh of meat with us. We cut open /b the thigh b and tore /b off the sciatic nerve and the forbidden fat b and put it on the grass. By /b the time b that we brought wood, the thigh had repaired /b itself, b and we roasted it. When we returned /b to that place b after twelve months /b of b the year /b had passed, b we saw that those coals were still glowing. When I came before Ameimar, he said to me: That grass was a drug of life [ i samterei /i ], /b while b those coals were of broom. /b ,The verse states: b “And God created the great sea monsters” /b (Genesis 1:21). b Here, /b in Babylonia, b they interpreted /b this as a reference to the b sea oryx. Rabbi Yoḥa says: This is leviathan the slant serpent, and leviathan the tortuous serpent, as it is stated: “In that day the Lord with His sore /b and great and strong b sword /b will punish leviathan the slant serpent, and leviathan the tortuous serpent” (Isaiah 27:1).,§ The Gemara provides b a mnemonic /b for the following statements of Rav Yehuda citing Rav: b Everything; time; Jordan. Rav Yehuda says /b that b Rav says: Everything that the Holy One, Blessed be He, created in His world, He created male and female. Even leviathan the slant serpent and leviathan the tortuous serpent He created male and female. And if they would have coupled /b and produced offspring, they would have b destroyed the entire world. What did the Holy One, Blessed be He, do? He castrated the male and killed the female, and salted /b the female to preserve it for the banquet b for the righteous in the future. As it is stated: “And He will slay the serpent that is in the sea” /b (Isaiah 27:1)., b And He created even the beasts on the thousand hills /b (see Psalms 50:10) b male and female. And /b they were so enormous that b if they would have coupled /b and produced offspring, b they would have destroyed the entire world. What did the Holy One, Blessed be He, do? He castrated the male and cooled /b the sexual desire of b the female and preserved it for the righteous in the future. As it is stated /b about the beasts: b “Lo now, his strength is in his loins” /b (Job 40:16); b this /b is referring to the b male. /b The continuation of the verse: b “And his force is in the stays of his body”; this /b is the b female, /b alluding to the idea that they did not use their genitals for the purpose of procreation.,The Gemara asks: b There too, /b with regard to the leviathan, b let Him castrate the male and cool the female; /b why was it necessary to kill the female? The Gemara answers: b Fish are unrestrained, /b and therefore even if the female was cooled, the female would still procreate. The Gemara suggests: b And let Him do the opposite, /b and kill and preserve the male leviathan. The Gemara responds: b If you wish, say /b that the b salted female is better; if you wish, say /b instead b that /b since b it is written: “There is leviathan, whom You have formed to sport with” /b (Psalms 104:26), the male must be left alive for sport, because it is b not proper conduct /b to sport b with a female. /b The Gemara asks: b Here too, /b with regard to the beasts, b let Him /b preserve the b female in salt, /b instead of cooling it. The Gemara answers: b Salted fish is good, /b but b salted meat is not good. /b , b And Rav Yehuda says /b that b Rav says: At the time when the Holy One, Blessed be He, sought to create the world, He said to the minister of the sea: Open your mouth and swallow all the waters of the world, /b so that there will be room for land. The minister of the sea b said before Him: Master of the Universe, /b it is b enough that I will stay within my own /b waters. God b immediately struck him and killed him; as it is stated: “He stirs up the sea with His power, and by His understanding He smites through Rahab” /b (Job 26:12)., b Rabbi Yitzḥak said: Conclude from here /b that b the name of the minister of the sea is Rahab, and were it not for waters /b of the sea that b cover him, no creature could withstand his smell, /b as his corpse emits a terrible stench. b As it is stated: “They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain; /b for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, b as the waters cover the sea” /b (Isaiah 11:9). b Do not read /b this phrase as b “cover the sea”; rather /b read it as: b Cover the minister of the sea, /b i.e., the term sea is referring to the minister of the sea, not to the sea itself., b And Rav Yehuda says /b that b Rav says: The Jordan issues forth from the cave of Pamyas. That is also taught /b in a i baraita /i : b The Jordan issues forth from the cave of Pamyas, and travels in the Sea of Sivkhi, /b i.e., the Hula Lake, b and in the Sea of Tiberias, /b the Sea of Galilee, b and rolls down to the Great Sea, and rolls down until it reaches the mouth of the leviathan. As it is stated: “He is confident, though the Jordan rush forth to his mouth” /b (Job 40:23). b Rava bar Ulla strongly objects to this /b explanation of the verse, stating: But b this /b verse b is written about the beasts on the thousand hills. Rather, Rava bar Ulla said /b that this is the meaning of the verse: b When are the beasts on the thousand hills confident? When the Jordan rushes forth into the mouth of the leviathan. /b ,§ The Gemara provides b a mnemonic /b for the upcoming statements of Rav Dimi: b Seas; Gabriel; hungry. When Rav Dimi came /b from Eretz Yisrael to Babylonia, he said that b Rabbi Yoḥa said: What /b is the meaning of that b which is written: “For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods” /b (Psalms 24:2)? b These are /b the b seven seas and four rivers that surround Eretz Yisrael.

The Gemara asks: b How much /b is b intermittently? Rami bar Abba said /b that b Rav Yitzḥak said: Thirty days. /b , b And Rami bar Abba said /b that b Rav Yitzḥak said: One who sees the Euphrates River near the bridge of Babylonia recites: Blessed…Author of creation. /b The Gemara adds: b And now that the Persians have rerouted /b the course of the river, one only recites the blessing b from Beit Shavor upriver. /b Downriver, it no longer flows as it did at creation, so there one does not recite the blessing: Author of creation. b Rav Yosef said: /b One only recites the blessing b from Ihi Dekira upriver. And Rami bar Abba said: One who sees the Tigris on the bridge of Shabistana recites: Blessed…Author of creation. /b ,The Gemara proceeds to explain the names of these rivers. b What is /b the source of the name b i Ḥidekel /i [ /b Tigris]? b Rav Ashi said: /b Its name is an acronym derived from the fact that b its waters are sharp [ i ḥadin /i ] and light [ i kalin /i ] /b and therefore good for drinking. b What is /b the source of the name b i Perat /i /b [Euphrates]? It is so named b because its waters are fruitful [ i parin /i ] and multiply [ i ravin /i ]; /b there are many fish in it.,As for the Tigris River, b Rava said: The inhabitants /b of the city b Meḥoza are sharp because they drink the water of the Tigris; they are red because they engage in /b conjugal b relations in the daytime; and their eyes move /b constantly b because they live in dark houses. /b ,We learned in our mishna that b over rain /b one recites the blessing: Blessed…Who is good and does good. The Gemara asks: b And over rain /b does b one /b really b recite the blessing: Who is good and does good? Didn’t Rabbi Abbahu say, and some say it was taught in a i baraita /i : From when does one recite the blessing on rain? From when the groom went out to meet the bride. /b In other words, there are puddles of water on the ground. The groom, meaning the raindrops from above, cause the bride, meaning the water below, to splash.,The Gemara asks: b What blessing does one recite? Rav Yehuda said: /b The formula of the blessing is: b We thank You for each and every drop that You have made fall for us. And Rav Yoḥa concludes /b the blessing b as follows: If our mouths were as full of song as the sea…we could not sufficiently praise You O Lord our God, /b and he continues with the formula of i nishmat /i that is recited on Shabbat morning, b until: Shall bow /b before You. b Blessed are You, O Lord, /b to Whom b abundant thanksgivings /b are offered.,The Gemara asks: Does the blessing say: b Abundant thanksgivings, and not: All thanksgivings? /b Certainly all thanksgivings are due to God. b Rava said: /b Emend the formula of the blessing and b say: The God of thanksgivings. Rav Pappa said: Therefore, we will recite them both: Abundant thanksgivings, and: The God of thanksgivings. /b , b However, it is /b still b difficult, /b as apparently the blessing for rain is not: Who is good and does good, as it appears in our mishna. The Gemara responds: This is b not difficult. This, /b which we learned in our mishna, that one recites: Who is good and does good, refers to a case b where one heard /b that rain fell. b This, /b where we learned that one recites: We thank You, etc., refers to a case b where one saw /b the rain fall.,The Gemara asks: b One heard /b that the rain fell; b that is /b a case of b good tidings. And we learned /b in the mishna b that upon /b hearing b good tidings one recites: Who is good and does good. /b Therefore, there is no reason for the mishna to mention rain separately., b Rather, /b the difficulty can be otherwise resolved: b This, /b Rabbi Abbahu’s statement, b and that, /b the mishna, both refer to a case where one saw the rain fall, b and /b this is b not difficult. This, /b Rabbi Abbahu’s statement that one recites We thank You, etc., b refers to /b a case b where a little /b rain b fell, /b while b that, /b the mishna which says that one recites: Who is good and does good, refers to a case b where a lot /b of rain b fell. And if you wish, say /b instead that b this and that /b refer to cases b where a lot /b of rain b fell, and /b this is b not difficult. This, /b the mishna, b refers to /b a case b where one owns land, /b while b that, /b Rabbi Abbahu’s statement that one recites: We thank You, etc., b refers to /b a case b where one does not own land, /b so the rain does not benefit him directly.,The Gemara asks: b One who owns land recites: Who is good and does good? Didn’t we learn /b in the mishna: b One who built a new house or purchased new vessels recites: Blessed…Who has given us life…and brought us to this time. /b However, if the land belonged b to him and others /b in partnership, b he recites: Who is good and does good? /b For rain falling onto land that one owns exclusively, he recites: Who has given us life and not: Who is good and does good.,The Gemara answers: This is b not difficult. This, /b the mishna where we learned that one recites: Who is good and does good, b refers to /b a case b where one /b owns his land b in partnership /b with another; b that, /b Rabbi Abbahu’s statement that one recites: Who has given us life, b refers to /b a case b where one /b owns the land exclusively and b does not have a partnership. And /b indeed, this i halakha /i b was taught /b in a i baraita /i : b The gist of the matter is, for /b that which b is /b exclusively b his, he recites: Blessed…Who has given us life and sustained us; for /b that which b belongs to him and to another /b in partnership, b he recites: Who is good and does good. /b ,The Gemara challenges this principle: b And in every case where others are not with him, one does not recite: Who is good and does good? Wasn’t it taught /b in a i baraita /i : b If they told him that his wife gave birth to a male, he recites: Who is good and does good? /b The Gemara responds: b There too, his wife is with him, as she is also happy that a male /b child was born.,The Gemara challenges further: b Come and hear /b a contradiction from what was taught in a i baraita /i : One whose b father died and he is his heir, initially recites: Blessed…the true Judge, /b upon hearing of his father’s death, b and ultimately, /b upon receiving his inheritance, b he recites: Blessed…Who is good and does good. /b Despite the fact that the son alone benefits, he nevertheless recites: Who is good and does good. The Gemara responds: b There, too, /b it refers to a case b where he has brothers who inherit along with him. /b ,The Gemara cites an additional challenge: b Come and hear /b a contradiction based on what was taught in a i baraita /i : In the case of b a change in /b the type of b wine /b during a meal, b one need not recite the blessing: /b Who creates fruit of the vine, a second time. However, in the case of b a change in place, one must recite a /b second b blessing /b over the wine. b And Rabbi Yosef bar Abba said /b that b Rabbi Yoḥa said: Although /b the Sages b said that /b in the case of b a change in /b the type of b wine one need not recite a /b second b blessing /b over the wine, b he does recite: Blessed…Who is good and does good. /b The Gemara responds: b There, too, /b it refers to a case where he is not alone, but where b members of the group are drinking with him. /b ,We learned in the mishna: One who b built a new house or purchased new vessels /b recites: Blessed…Who has given us life, sustained us and brought us to this time. With regard to this blessing, b Rav Huna said: They only taught /b that one recites: Who has given us life, upon purchasing a new vessel when b he does not /b already b have something similar, /b i.e., something he inherited. b However, if he /b already b has something similar he need not recite a blessing, /b as it is not new to him. b Rabbi Yoḥa said: Even /b if b one /b already b has something similar /b that he inherited, b he must recite a blessing /b because he never before purchased a vessel of that kind.

Eli’s sons delayed the sacrifice of these offerings and thereby delayed the return of these women to their husbands and their fulfillment of the mitzva of procreation. Even though, according to this opinion, Eli’s sons did not actually engage in sexual relations with these women, the verse attributes that degree of severity to their conduct.,Eli’s sons also sinned in the b degradation of consecrated items, as it is written: “Before the fat was made burned, the priest’s servant came and said to the man who sacrificed: Hand over some flesh to roast for the priest, for he will not take cooked flesh from you, but raw. And if the man said to him: Let the fat be burnt first and then take as much as you want, then he would say: No, hand it over right now, or I will take it by force. The sin of the young men against the Lord was very great, for the men treated the Lord’s offerings with contempt” /b (I Samuel 2:15–17).,§ The i Tosefta /i continues with a discussion of the sins of the Jewish people over the generations: b Due to what /b reason b was /b the b First Temple destroyed? /b It was destroyed b due to /b the fact b that there were three matters /b that existed b in /b the First Temple: b Idol worship, forbidden sexual relations, and bloodshed. Idol worship, as it is written: “The bed is too short for stretching [ i mehistare’a /i ], /b and the cover is too narrow for gathering” (Isaiah 28:20)., b What is /b the meaning of: b “The bed is too short for stretching?” Rabbi Yonatan said: This bed is too short for two counterparts [ i re’im /i ] to dominate [ i mehistarer /i ]. /b i Mehistare’a /i is a contraction of i mehistarer re’im /i . It is inconceivable that there would be in one Temple both service of God and worship of the idol placed there by King Manasseh., b What /b is the meaning of: b And the cover [ i vehamasseikha /i ] is too narrow [ i tzara /i ] for gathering [ i kehitkannes /i ]? Rabbi Shmuel bar Naḥmani said /b that b when Rabbi Yonatan reached this verse, he wept /b and b said: For He about Whom it is written: “He gathers [ i kones /i ] waters of the sea together as a heap” /b (Psalms 33:7), b the idol [ i masseikha /i ] became a rival [ i tzara /i ]? /b In the homiletic interpretation, i masseikha /i is interpreted as idol and i tzara /i is interpreted as rival, as in the term used to describe the relationship between two women married to the same husband, i isha tzara /i .,With regard to b forbidden sexual relations, it is written: “The Lord says because the daughters of Zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go and making a tinkling with their feet” /b (Isaiah 3:16). br b Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, /b indicates a b tall /b woman walking b alongside /b a b short /b one so that the tall woman would stand out. br b And walk with outstretched necks, /b indicates b that they would walk with upright stature /b and carry themselves in an immodest way. br b And wanton eyes, /b indicates b that they would fill their eyes with blue eye shadow /b in order to draw attention to their eyes. br b Walking and mincing as they go, /b indicates b that they would walk /b in small steps, b heel to toe, /b so onlookers would notice them. br b Making a tinkling [ i te’akasna /i ] with their feet, Rabbi Yitzḥak said: /b This teaches b that they would bring myrrh and balsam and place /b them b in their shoes /b and would walk in the marketplaces of Jerusalem. b And once they approached /b a place where b young Jewish men /b were congregated, b they would stamp /b their feet on the ground b and splash /b the perfume b toward them and instill the evil inclination into them like venom of a viper [ i ke’eres bikhos /i ]. /b ,With regard to b bloodshed it is written: “Moreover, Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, until he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another” /b (II Kings 21:16)., b However, /b considering that the people during b the Second Temple /b period b were engaged in Torah /b study, observance of b mitzvot, and acts of kindness, /b and that they did not perform the sinful acts that were performed in the First Temple, b why was /b the Second Temple b destroyed? /b It was destroyed b due to /b the fact b that there was wanton hatred /b during that period. This comes b to teach you that /b the sin of b wanton hatred is equivalent to the three /b severe b transgressions: Idol worship, forbidden sexual relations and bloodshed. /b ,The Gemara continues: b They were wicked; however, they put their faith in the Holy One, Blessed be He. /b With that statement b we have come to /b the b First Temple /b era, about b which it is written: “Her chiefs judge for bribes, her priests give rulings for a fee, and her prophets divine for pay; yet they rely on the Lord, saying: The Lord is in our midst, no tragedy will overtake us” /b (Micah 3:11). At least the final portion of the verse was to their credit. b Therefore, the Holy One, Blessed be He, brought upon them three decrees corresponding to their three wicked sins, as it is stated: “Therefore, due to you Zion will be plowed as a field, Jerusalem will become heaps of ruins, and the Temple Mount will be a like a shrine in the woods” /b (Micah 3:12).,The Gemara asks: b And in the First Temple /b era b was there /b really b no baseless hatred? Isn’t it written: /b “Cry and wail, son of man, for this will befall my people, this will befall all the princes of Israel: b They will be cast before the sword together with my people, therefore strike the thigh” /b (Ezekiel 21:17)? b Rabbi Eliezer /b interpreted this verse and b said: These are people who eat and drink with each other, and stab each other with verbal barbs. /b Apparently, even those who were close were filled with hatred toward one another.,The Gemara answers: b That /b behavior b was /b found only among b the princes of Israel, as it is written: “Cry and wail, son of man, for this will befall my people”; and it was taught /b in a i baraita /i : b “Cry and wail, son of man, /b for this will befall my people”; one b might /b have thought that this unsavory trait was common b to all. /b Therefore, b the verse states: “This will befall all the princes of Israel.” /b It was only the leaders of the nation who harbored baseless hatred for each other; the people of the nation as a whole did not hate one another.,§ It was b Rabbi Yoḥa and Rabbi Elazar who both said: /b In the case of b the former, /b the people in the First Temple era, b whose sin was exposed /b and no attempt was made to disguise their conduct, the b end /b of b their /b punishment b was exposed, /b and the prophet informed them that they would return to their land in seventy years. In the case of b the latter, /b the people in the Second Temple era, b whose sin was not exposed; /b rather, they attempted to disguise their conduct, the b end /b of b their /b punishment b was not exposed. /b , b Rabbi Yoḥa said: The fingernails of the former are preferable to the belly of the latter. Reish Lakish said to him: On the contrary, the latter were superior; even though there is subjugation by the kingdoms, they are engaged in Torah study. /b Rabbi Yoḥa b said to /b Reish Lakish: b The Temple will prove /b that the former were superior, b as it /b was b restored to the former. /b The Second Temple was constructed after the destruction of the first. However, after the destruction of the Second Temple, b it /b was b not restored to the latter. /b Apparently, the former were superior to the latter.,Similarly, the Sages b asked Rabbi Elazar: Are the former greater or are the latter greater? He said to them: Look to the Temple /b and see if it has been restored, as it was to our predecessors. b Some say /b the exchange was slightly different: b He said to them: The Temple is your witness. /b The restoration of the Temple after the destruction of the First Temple, attests to the fact that the former generation was greater., b Reish Lakish was swimming in the Jordan River /b when b Rabba bar bar Ḥana came and gave him a hand /b to help him out. Reish Lakish b said to him: My God! I hate you /b Babylonians, b as it is written: “If she be a wall we will build a silver turret upon her, if she be a door we will cover her with boards of cedar” /b (Song of Songs 8:9). This is the meaning of the verse as it applies to the Jewish people: b Had you rendered yourselves /b a solid bloc b like a wall and all ascended /b to Eretz Yisrael b in the days of Ezra, you would have been likened to silver, which rot does not infest, /b in the sense that you would have merited experiencing the Divine Presence in all its glory. b Now that you ascended like doors, /b and only some of you came to Eretz Yisrael, b you are likened to cedar, which rot infests, /b and you merit experiencing only partial revelation of the Divine Presence.,The Gemara asks: b What /b rot infests b cedar? Ulla said: It is i sasmagor /i , /b a type of worm. The Gemara asks: b What /b does b i sasmagor /i /b have to do with the Divine Presence during the Second Temple era? b Rabbi Abba said: /b Just as little remains from a cedar tree infested by this worm, similarly, all that remained from the Divine Presence during the Second Temple period was a b Divine Voice, as it was taught /b in a i baraita /i : b After the last prophets Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi died, the Divine Spirit /b of prophetic revelation b departed from the Jewish people, and they were still utilizing a Divine Voice, /b which they heard as an echo of prophecy.,The Gemara asks: b And would Reish Lakish speak with Rabba bar bar Ḥana /b in public? b Just as Rabbi Elazar, who was the master of Eretz Yisrael /b in wisdom and character, b and /b nevertheless, b Reish Lakish would not speak with him /b in public, as Reish Lakish was sparing in his speech and extended friendship to only a select few prominent, righteous people, to the extent that b a person to whom Reish Lakish /b was seen b speaking in the marketplace, one would give him /b a loan and b do business /b with him b without witnesses; /b would he b have spoken with Rabba bar bar Ḥana? /b , b Rav Pappa said: Cast a man between them, /b and say that the incident did not involve Reish Lakish and Rabba bar bar Ḥana. It b was either Reish Lakish /b bathing in the river b and Ze’iri, /b the prominent Babylonian Sage, who extended him a hand, b or /b it was b Rabba bar bar Ḥana /b who was in the river b and Rabbi Elazar /b extended a hand to him.

Rabbi Yannai, son of Rabbi Yishmael, says: /b There were found b three large baskets /b each holding b forty i se’a /i /b of phylactery boxes. And b it was taught in a i baraita /i : /b There were b forty large baskets /b each holding b three i se’a /i . /b ,The Gemara notes: b And /b these Sages b do not disagree: This /b Sage is referring to phylacteries b of the head, /b whereas b this /b Sage is referring to phylacteries b of the arm, /b for owing to the different manners in which they are fashioned, they are also different in size., b Rabbi Asi says: Four i kav /i of brains /b from children whose skulls were smashed b were found on one stone. Ulla says: Nine i kav /i . Rav Kahana said, and some say /b that it was b Sheila bar Mari /b who said: b What is the verse /b from which it is derived? b “O daughter of Babylon, marked for devastation; happy is he who shall repay you /b your recompense for what you have done to us. b Happy is he who shall seize and dash your little ones against the rock” /b (Psalms 137:8–9).,§ The verse states: b “The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold” /b (Lamentations 4:2). b What /b is the meaning of the expression b “comparable to fine gold”? If we say that /b it means b they were covered in fine gold [ i piza /i ], /b this is difficult; b but didn’t the school of Rabbi Sheila say: Two i istira /i weights of fine gold came down into the world, one in Rome and one in all /b the rest of b the world. /b If so, it is certainly impossible to cover the inhabitants of Jerusalem with fine gold, as there is not enough of it in the entire world to do so. b Rather, /b this means that they would be so attractive b that they would disgrace fine gold because of their beauty. /b ,The Gemara relates that b initially the noblemen of Rome would keep an image /b imprinted b on a seal /b by their beds b and engage in sexual intercourse /b opposite that image, so that they would beget children of similar beauty. b From this /b point b forward, /b from the time of the Great Revolt, b they would bring Jewish children, tie them to the foot of their beds, and engage in sexual intercourse /b across from them, because they were so handsome.,It is related that it once happened that they did this to two children, and b one /b of them b said to the other: Where is this /b affliction b written /b in the Torah? The other b said to him: /b As it is written: b “Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this Torah” /b (Deuteronomy 28:61). The first one b said: How far am I /b in my studies b from this, /b i.e., how much more would I have had to learn in order to reach this verse? The other b said: Had you gone on one and a half columns [ i pusta /i ], /b you would have reached this. The first child b said to /b the other: b Had I reached this /b verse, b I would not have needed you, /b as I would have known on my own that the verse was speaking about this., b Rav Yehuda says /b that b Shmuel says in the name of Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel: What /b is the meaning of that b which is written: “My eye affects my soul because of all the daughters of my city” /b (Lamentations 3:51)? b There were four hundred synagogues in the city of Beitar, and in each and every one of them there were four hundred schoolteachers, and each and every one /b of these teachers b had four hundred schoolchildren. /b , b And when the enemy entered there, /b these schoolchildren b stabbed them with their pens [ i beḥotreihen /i ]. And when the enemy prevailed and caught them, they wrapped /b the children b in their scrolls and lit them on fire. /b , b The Sages taught /b another i baraita /i ( i Tosefta /i , i Horayot /i 2:5) relating to the fate of the Jewish children: There was b an incident involving Rabbi Yehoshua ben Ḥaya who /b once b went to the great city of Rome, /b where b they said to him: There is a child in prison /b with b beautiful eyes /b and b an attractive appearance, and his curly hair is arranged in locks. /b Rabbi Yehoshua b went and stood by the entrance to the prison. He said, /b as if speaking to himself: b “Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers?” /b (Isaiah 42:24). b That child answered by reciting /b the continuation of the verse: b “Did not the Lord, He against Whom we have sinned, and in Whose ways they would not walk, neither were they obedient to His law?” /b ,Rabbi Yehoshua b said: I am certain that, /b if given the opportunity, b this /b child will b issue /b halakhic b rulings in Israel, /b as he is already exceedingly wise. He said: I take an oath b by the Temple service that I will not move from here until I ransom him for whatever /b sum of b money they set for him. They said /b that b he did not move from there until he ransomed him for a great /b sum of b money, and not /b even b a few days /b had passed when this child then b issued /b halakhic b rulings in Israel. And who was /b this child? This was b Rabbi Yishmael ben Elisha. /b , b Rav Yehuda says /b that b Rav says: /b There was b an incident involving the son and the daughter of Rabbi Yishmael ben Elisha /b the High Priest, b who were taken captive /b and sold into slavery b to two /b different b masters. After some time /b the two masters b met in a certain place. This /b master b said: I have a male slave whose beauty is unmatched in all of the world, and that /b master b said: I have a female slave whose beauty is unmatched in all of the world. /b ,The two masters b said: Come, let us marry /b these two slaves b to one another and divide the children /b born to them between us, as they will certainly be very beautiful. They secluded them in a room. b This /b one, the son, b sat in one corner, and that /b one, the daughter, b sat in the other corner. He said: I am a priest /b and b the descendant of High Priests. Shall I marry a female slave? And she said: I am the daughter of a priest /b and b the descendant of High Priests. Shall I be married to a male slave? And they wept all /b through the b night. /b , b When dawn arrived they recognized each other /b and saw that they were brother and sister. b They fell on each other and burst into tears until their souls departed /b due to their great distress. b And with regard to them /b and others like them, b Jeremiah lamented: “For these things I weep; my eye, my eye runs down with water” /b (Lamentations 1:16)., b Reish Lakish says: /b There was b an incident involving a certain woman named Tzafenat bat Peniel. /b And why was she called this? She was called b Tzafenat /b because b they would all gaze [ i tzofin /i ] at her beauty, /b and she was called b bat Peniel /b because she was b the daughter [ i bat /i ] of the High Priest who served in the innermost sanctum [ i lifnai velefnim /i ] /b of the Temple.,And it happened that she was taken captive and b her captor abused /b and raped b her all night. The next day he dressed her in seven garments and took her out to sell her. A certain man who was especially ugly came /b and b said to /b the man who was selling her: b Show me her beauty. He said to him: Good-for-nothing, if you wish to buy /b her then b buy /b her, b for there is no beauty like hers in all of the world. /b ,The potential buyer b said to /b the seller: b Even so, /b I wish to see for myself. b He removed /b the b six /b outermost b garments, and she /b herself b tore the seventh, and rolled in ashes. She said before /b God: b Master of the Universe, /b even b if You have shown no pity to us, /b and have allowed us to be disgraced in this way, b why have You not shown pity to the sanctity of Your mighty name /b by which we are called?, b And with regard to her /b and others like her, b Jeremiah lamented: “O daughter of My people, gird yourself with sackcloth and roll in ashes; make you mourning as for an only son, most bitter lamentation, for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us” /b (Jeremiah 6:26). b It is not stated: Upon you, but /b rather b “upon us,” /b for b the spoiler shall come, as it were, /b both b over Me and over you. /b God Himself shares this pain and His name is also disgraced.,§ b Rav Yehuda says /b that b Rav says: What /b is the meaning of that b which is written: /b “And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away; b so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage” /b (Micah 2:2)? There was b an incident involving a certain man who set his eyes on his master’s wife, and he was a carpenter’s apprentice [ i shulya /i ]. /b , b One time his master needed to borrow /b some money, and his apprentice b said to him: Send your wife to me and I will lend her /b the money. b He sent his wife to him, /b and the apprentice b stayed with her for three days. He /b then b went back to /b his master b before /b she did, and the master b said to him: Where is my wife whom I sent to you? /b The apprentice b said to him: I sent her /b back b immediately, but I heard that the youth abused /b and raped b her on the way. /b ,The master b said to /b his apprentice: b What shall I do? /b The apprentice b said to him: If you listen to my advice, divorce her. He said to him: /b But b her marriage contract is large /b and I do not have the money to pay it. The apprentice b said to him: I will lend you /b the money, and b you will give her /b payment of b her marriage contract. /b The master b arose and divorced her, /b and the apprentice b went and married her. /b , b When the time came /b that the debt was due, b and he did not have /b the means with which b to repay it, /b the apprentice b said to /b his master: b Come and work off your debt with me. And they, /b the apprentice and his wife, b would sit and eat and drink, while he, /b the woman’s first husband, b would stand /b over them b and serve them their drinks. And tears would drop from his eyes and fall into their cups, and at that time /b the Jewish people’s b sentence was sealed, /b for remaining silent in the face of this injustice. b And some say /b that the Jewish people were punished b for two wicks in one lamp, /b a euphemism for the sin of adultery committed by this couple while the master was still married to the woman.,The Gemara returns to the mishna, which states: If b one /b first b purchased /b land b from a Sicarius, /b and afterward returned and purchased the same field from the prior landowner, so that he will be considered the legal owner of the field, his purchase is void. b Rav says: They taught /b that the purchase is void b only /b in a case where the prior owner b says to /b the buyer when he came to acquire the field from him: b Go, take possession /b of the field b and /b thereby b acquire /b it, as in such a case the prior owner can say that he did not actually mean to sell him the field. b But /b if he sold it to him b with a bill /b of sale, the buyer b acquires /b the field. b And Shmuel says: Even /b if he sold it to him b with a bill /b of sale, the buyer b does not acquire /b it b unless /b the prior owner b writes him a guarantee /b that if the field is repossessed by a creditor of the prior owner, the prior owner, who sold him the field, will compensate him for his loss, as by writing this guarantee he demonstrates that this is a true sale.
