1. Every Jew can pray directly to Hashem and needs no one else to pray for him.
2. The Gemara discusses the dimensions of the entire Heichal.
3. The Gemara relates that the meaning of five verses is unclear.
4. Inside the Kodesh ha'Kodashim, the Kohen Gadol placed the fire pan between the poles of the Aron.
5. The Kohen Gadol would back out of the Kodesh ha'Kodashim instead of turning around and leaving.


1. This is because Hashem loves Bnei Yisrael and desires that everyone pray directly to Him. For this reason, Rebbi Yosi explains, the Kohen Gadol may walk directly into the Kodesh ha'Kodashim, since he is a representative of a beloved people and is therefore loved by Hashem.
2. The Heichal was 100 by 100 one Amos, and it was 100 Amos high. The Gemara discusses each part of the Heichal (including the wall of the Ulam, the Ulam itself, etc.) and its dimensions.
3. All five of these verses discuss whether a certain word is read together with the word before it or with the word after it.
4. He then placed the Ketores on the coals in the fire pan, causing the Kodesh ha'Kodashim to become filled with smoke.
5. He would recite only a short prayer in the Heichal in order not to delay his exit, lest Bnei Yisrael become worried that he died.
