1. If one is asked to pay his debts when they are due, and he is unable to do so, his wife may die.
2. A person must have a desire to offer his pledged Korbanos.
3. The Gemara explains the difference between a Neder and a Nedavah pledge.
4. Rava says that charity that is pledged must be given immediately.
5. The Gemara inquires whether an heir transgresses Bal Te'acher.


1. Some say that this refers to stolen money that he spent, and thus he is not able to repay his victim.
2. The verse states that "he must offer" but it must be "based on his will [to do so]." This means that Beis Din will force a person, who pledged to offer a Korban, to fulfill his commitment until he agrees willingly to bring them. A person really wants to do the right thing (it is just that his evil inclination gets in his way).
3. A Neder is when a person says, "It is upon me to offer...," while a Nedavah is when he says, "This animal is dedicated to be...." If the animal of a Neder pledge is lost, the owner must replace it, since he said that it is "upon me" to offer it. In the case of a lost Nedavah, the owner does not have to replace the animal, since he pledged only a specific animal.
4. Even though the other pledges mentioned above (5a) must only be fulfilled before three Regalim have passed (according to most opinions), charity must be given immediately. This is because the poor people are present and waiting for it.
5. The Gemara concludes that he does not transgress Bal Te'acher.
