1a)[line 2]מחמץ אחר מחמץMECHAMETZ ACHAR MECHAMETZ

(a)There is a prohibition to cause the dough of Menachos (either the Kometz or the Shirayim, the part that the Kohanim eat) to become leavened, as it states, "Kol ha'Minchah... Lo Se'aseh Chametz" (Vayikra 2:11). An additional verse, "Lo Se'afeh Chametz" (Vayikra 6:10), specifically prohibits baking leavened Menachos.

(b)This extra verse is used to teach that once the dough of a Minchah offering is leavened, each and every subsequent process involved in preparing a baked Minchah offering is also prohibited ("Mechametz Achar Mechametz"). For example, if one person leavens the dough and another bakes it, they both transgress a Lav.

b)[line 3]מסרס אחר מסרסMESARES ACHAR MESARES

(a)It is prohibited to perform castration, as the Torah states, "[You shall not offer to HaSh-m an animal that has its testicles bruised or crushed, broken or cut;] neither shall you do this in your land" (Vayikra 22:24). A person who performs castration receives Malkus. (SEFER HA'CHINUCH #291)

(b)A person who adds to the mutilation of the genitals caused by another person is also liable to Malkus.

b)[line 4]"וכתות ...""… V'CHASUS ..."- "... or with an instrument ..."

c)[line 4]"ונתוק ...""… V'NASUK ..."- "... or pulled loose (and completely detached from the body) ..."

d)[line 4]"... וכרות [לא תקריבו את לה' ובארצכם לא תעשו]""… V'CHARUS [LO SAKRIVU LA'HASH-M, UV'ARTZECHEM LO SA'ASU]"- "... or severed (but remaining in their sac) [you may not offer to HaSh-m, and you may not do such a thing to an animal in any land where you live.]" (Vayikra 22:24)

3)[line 8]ולרבי יוחנן בן ברוקאUL'REBBI YOCHANAN BEN BEROKA- that is, even though the prohibition of Sirus certainly does not apply to a woman, nevertheless it should be forbidden for her to drink this because it will prevent her from keeping the Mitzvah of Piryah v'Rivyah (Tosfos 110b DH v'ha'Tanya, 111a DH b'Zekeinah)

12)[line 32]דאית ליה הואילD'IS LEI HO'IL- Rava suggests the logic of "since." (That is, since an act is permitted during part of a Shabbos, it cannot be prohibited during the rest of Shabbos, or during Yom Kippur.)

15)[line 3]פסיק רישיה ולא ימותPSIK REISHEI V'LO YAMUS (DAVAR SHE'EINO MISKAVEN)

(a)A Davar she'Eino Miskaven is an act which is done for a certain purpose (which can be accomplished without transgressing an Isur Torah), but which may result in an Isur Torah being inadvertently performed. Rebbi Yehudah prohibits performing such an action, since it may result in an Isur Torah. Rebbi Shimon disagrees, claiming that even though an Isur Torah may result from this action, since the Isur Torah will come about without intent, the action is permitted.

(b)The laws of a Davar she'Eino Miskaven (that it is permitted according to Rebbi Shimon or forbidden according to Rebbi Yehudah) apply only when it is not inevitable that an Isur Torah will occur as a result of one's action. However, when an Isur Torah will definitely occur as a result of one's action, it is known as a Pesik Reshei and is forbidden (literally, "[can one] cut off the head [of an animal] and it will not die?!"). For example, if a person cut the head off of a chicken on Shabbos and states that he had no intention to kill the animal but he merely wanted its blood to feed to his dogs, it is considered as though he had full intention to kill the animal since it was an inevitable outcome of his act, and he is Chayav.

(c)A person must have specific intent to do a Melachah on Shabbos in order to be liable for punishment or to be required to bring a Korban. Therefore, if a person drags a bench and a furrow does result, even Rebbi Yehudah will agree that the person who dragged it is not obligated to bring a Korban, since the furrow was created accidentally. Rebbi Yehudah and Rebbi Shimon argue only as to whether it is permitted in the first place to perform an action that may result in a Melachah.
