1) THE DECREE ON CHUTZ LA'ARETZ
(a) Suggestion: Tana'im argue on the decree on Chutz La'aretz.2) DAYS OF ABSOLUTE LEPROSY AND COUNTING1. (Beraisa - Rebbi): One who enters Chutz La'aretz in a box becomes Tamei; R. Yosi b'Rebbi Yehudah says he remains Tahor.(b) Rejection #1: No, both hold that the decree was on the soil.i. Suggestion: R. Yosi b'Rebbi Yehudah holds that the decree was on the soil, and Rebbi holds that the decree was on the air.1. R. Yosi b'Rebbi Yehudah holds that a moving tent is considered a tent (and the bottom of the box shields from the Tum'ah of the soil); Rebbi holds, it is not considered a tent.(c) Rejection #2: Both hold that the decree was on the air
(a) (Mishnah): He (re-)starts counting ...
Next daf2. Answer: Rather, it was a long Nezirus, and the Mishnah says, he starts counting immediately (*after* purification)!(d) Answer (Rav Sharbiya): The 'long Nezirus' Rav Chisda spoke of meant that 30 days remained after the leprosy, e.g. a 50 day Nezirus and he became an absolute leper after 20 days.1. After shaving at the end of leprosy, he guards the 30 remaining days of Nezirus.(e) Question #1 (Rami bar Chama - Mishnah): A Nazir doubtfully became Tamei (Mes), and was doubtfully an absolute leper - he can eat Kodshim after 60 days, and can drink wine and become Tamei after 120 days.
