Mishnah, Eruvin, 5.4


אֵין מוֹדְדִין אֶלָּא בְחֶבֶל שֶׁל חֲמִשִּׁים אַמָּה, לֹא פָחוֹת וְלֹא יוֹתֵר. וְלֹא יִמְדּוֹד אֶלָּא כְנֶגֶד לִבּוֹ. הָיָה מוֹדֵד וְהִגִּיעַ לְגַיְא אוֹ לְגָדֵר, מַבְלִיעוֹ וְחוֹזֵר לְמִדָּתוֹ. הִגִּיעַ לְהָר, מַבְלִיעוֹ וְחוֹזֵר לְמִדָּתוֹ, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁלֹּא יֵצֵא חוּץ לַתְּחוּם. אִם אֵינוֹ יָכוֹל לְהַבְלִיעוֹ, בָּזוֹ אָמַר רַבִּי דוֹסְתַּאי בַּר רַבִּי יַנַּאי מִשּׁוּם רַבִּי מֵאִיר, שָׁמַעְתִּי שֶׁמְּקַדְּרִין בֶּהָרִים:They measure the Shabbat limit only with a rope fifty cubits long, neither less nor more. And one should measure only while holding the end of the rope on a level with his heart. If he was measuring and he reached a valley or a wall he spans it and resumes his measuring. If he reached a hill he spans it and resumes his measuring, provided he does not go beyond the Shabbat limit. If he is unable to span it in connection with this Rabbi Dostai ben Yannai stated in the name of Rabbi Meir: “I have heard that they pierce the hills.”
