1) [line 6] MEYUCHAD SHEB'EDRO - the choicest lamb of the flock
*4*) [line 15] V'HAVINAN BAH, KRA LAMAH LI? - that is, it should be permitted to perform Milah despite the Baheres since doing so is a Davar she'Eino Miskaven, and is not prohibited by the Torah according to Rebbi Shimon. (The Gemara in Shabbos 133a concludes that Abaye changed his mind. In this case Rebbi Shimon admits that the act of cutting a Baheres is prohibited by the Torah, since it is a Pesik Reisha.)
5) [line 24] PELUSIN - linen [garments] that come from Pelusium, a town in Lower Egypt (see #6)
6) [line 25] HINDUYIN - "Indian" linen garments. RASHI writes that the land of Hinduyin is another name for the land of Kush, which may be either Ethiopia or an area near India called Hindakush; (b) Alternatively, RABEINU CHANANEL and RAMBAM in Peirush ha'Mishnayos write that Pelusin and *Hindevin* are Arabic names for white linen garments that differ only in the style of their cut.
