1) A VERBAL WILL ON SHABBOS (Yerushalmi Halachah 8 Daf 30a)

משנה וחכמים אומרים בשבת דבריו קיימין מפני שאינו יכול לכתוב אבל לא בחול

(a) (Mishnah) - Chachamim: On Shabbos, the words of a deathly ill person take effect because he is not able to write, but this is not the case on a weekday.

רבי יהושע אומר בשבת אמרו קל וחומר בחול

(b) R. Yehoshua: They said it on Shabbos and certainly on a weekday.

כיוצא בו זכין לקטן ואין זכין לגדול

(c) Similarly (the Chachamim rule that) one can acquire on behalf of a child but not an adult.

ר' יהושע אומר לקטן אמרו קל וחומר לגדול:

(d) R. Yehoshua: They said it about a child and certainly about an adult.

גמרא אית תניי תני ומחליף

(e) (Gemara): Some teach the opposite text in the Mishnah (that according to the Chachamim, it is only on a weekday that a verbal order takes effect, but not on Shabbos).

רבי יהושע בן לוי אמר כיני מתניתא אם בשבת אמרו קל וחומר בחול.

(f) R. Yehoshua ben Levi upheld the original text of the Chachamim and says that R. Yehoshua argues that they said it about Shabbos and certainly on a weekday.

אית תניי תני ומחליף

(g) Similarly about the second discussion in the Mishnah, some teach the opposite text (that according to the Chachamim, one can only acquire on behalf of an adult but not a child.

ר' יהושע בן לוי אמר כיני מתניתא אם בקטן אמרו קל וחומר בגדול:

(h) And R. Yehoshua ben Levi upheld the original text of the Chachamim and says that R. Yehoshua argues that they said it about a child and certainly about an adult.
