(Iyov 40:25). From HaSh-m's question to Iyov regarding whether he was the one able to hunt the mighty Leviathan, it is implicit that the Leviathan will eventually be hunted by another.
3)[line 3]אין יכול לוEIN YACHOL LO- he would be unable [to successfully hunt and kill] it
4)[line 3]"... הָעוֹשׂוֹ יַגֵּשׁ חַרְבּוֹ""... HA'OSO YAGESH CHARBO"- "... [only] his Maker [is able to] bring His sword close [to it in order to kill it]" (Iyov 40:19). Although this verse is written with regard to the Behemos b'Harerei Elef, it equally applies to the Leviathan.

11)[line 7]"... יָם יָשִׂים כַּמֶּרְקָחָה""... YAM YASIM KA'MERKACHAH"- "... he turns the sea into a blended mixture of spices" (Iyov 41:23). Our Gemara understands this verse to be specifically referring to a point after the Leviathan had first placed its head into Gan Eden (see MAHARAL for an explanation of the connection between the Leviathan and Gan Eden).
12)[line 8]שצמאTZAMEI- thirsty
13)[line 8]תלמים תלמיםTELAMIM TELAMIM- many furrows [due to the sudden loss of copious amounts of water]

Our Gemara interprets this verse, which is referring to the Leviathan, to specifically refer to when the Leviathan drinks from the sea.
15)[line 9]אין תהום חוזר לאיתנוEIN TEHOM CHOZER L'EISANO- the depths do not return to their original strength
16)[line 9]"... יַחְשׁוֹב תְּהוֹם לְשֵׂיבָה""... YACHSHOV TEHOM L'SEIVAH"- see above, entry #14

(Iyov 40:30). This verse refers to the Leviathan. From HaSh-m's question to Iyov regarding whether he was the one able to perform these actions, it is implicit that others will eventually be able to do so.
18)[line 12]"וַיִּכְרֶה לָהֶם כֵּרָה גְדוֹלָה, וַיֹּאכְלוּ וַיִּשְׁתּוּ...""VA'YICHREH LAHEM KERAH GEDOLAH, VA'YOCHELU VA'YISHTU..."- "And he prepared a great feast for them, and they ate and they drank..." (Melachim II 6:23). This verse describes the actions of the King of Yisrael on behalf of his captives from Aram.
19)[line 13]"היושבת בגנים, חברים מקשיבים לקולך השמיעיני""HA'YOSHEVES BA'GANIM CHAVERIM MAKSHIVIM L'KOLECH HASHMI'INI"- "O [she] who dwells in the gardens - colleagues hearken to your voice - make yourself heard to Me!" (Shir ha'Shirim 8:13). Our Gemara interprets this verse, in which HaSh-m addresses Klal Yisrael, to be referring to Talmidei Chachamim who learn Torah in synagogues and study halls (see RASHI ibid.).
20)[line 14]סחורהSECHORAH- merchandise [to sell for a profit]

ASHER SOCHAREHA SARIM, KIN'ANEHA NICHBADEI ARETZ?"- "[Who advised this (destruction) of Tzor (Tyre), who is crowned (in wealth and honor);] whose merchants are her princes, and her traders are the honored ones of the land?" (Yeshayah 23:8). The Navi rhetorically asks who was behind the destruction of Tzor; clearly, the answer is HaSh-m.
26)[line 17]סוכהSUKAH- a hut with walls and a roof
27)[line 17]מעורוORO- its skin

(Iyov 40:31). This verse refers to the Leviathan. From HaSh-m's question to Iyov regarding whether he was the one able to perform these actions, it is implicit that others will eventually be able to do so.
29)[line 19](צלצל) [צל](TZILTZAL) [TZEL]- shade; i.e., a canopy without walls

According to the simple understanding of this verse, it refers to Torah and the wise words of Chachamim. Our Gemara interprets it to mean, "[For the Leviathan shall grace your head by providing shade, and if one is not worthy for this, then] it will be a necklace around your neck" (MAHARSHA).
33)[line 20]קמיעKAMI'A- an amulet, usually consisting of a piece of parchment or herbs wrapped in a small piece of leather that is worn around the neck as a charm

This verse refers to the Leviathan. From HaSh-m's question to Iyov regarding whether he was the one able to perform these actions, it is implicit that others will eventually be able to do so.

The word "Oreich," which is spelled with an Aleph and means "your light," can be read as "Oreich" spelled with an Ayin, meaning "your skin" (MAHARSHA).

42)[line 25]להוי כְּדֵין וּכְדֵיןLEHAVEI K'DEIN UCH'DEIN- let it be like this [opinion] and that [opinion]. Our Gemara explains that the word "Kadchod" is a contraction of "k'Dein uch'Dein," rather than referring to one type of precious stone.

b)[line 34]ונעשה גל של עצמותV'NA'ASEH GAL SHEL ATZAMOS- and he became a pile of bones; i.e., he died, after which point rot eventually sets in and destroys the flesh
55)[line 35]"... וָאוֹלֵךְ אֶתְכֶם קוֹמְמִיּוּת""... VA'OLECH ESCHEM KOMAMIYUS"- "[I am HaSh-m, your G-d, Who has taken you out of the land of Egypt from being their slaves; and I will break the bolts of your yoke,] and I will bring you [into Eretz Yisrael] standing upright" (Vayikra 26:13). Our Gemara understands this verse to be referring to the height of man at the time of the final redemption in the times of Mashi'ach. From the double Mem in the word "Komemiyus," the Gemara derives that man will be a double height.
56)[line 35]כשתי קומות של אדם הראשוןKI'SHTEI KOMOS SHEL ADAM HA'RISHON- twice as tall as the height of Adam ha'Rishon [after he was shrunk to the height of 100 Amos (see Chagigah 12a)]

66a)[line 46]חמהCHAMAH- the sun
b)[line 46]לבנהLEVANAH- the moon

The labor of your percussion and wind (lit. holed) instruments was in you, on the day of your creation they were established" (Yechezkel 28:13). This verse addresses Chiram, king of Tzor, who led a powerful and wealthy nation. In this verse, HaSh-m, through the Navi, challenges his claim that he was a god.

This refers to man's need to eliminate, and it is based on a digestive system that includes hollows similar to percussion instruments and holes similar to those found in wind instruments (as mentioned in the Berachah of "Asher Yatzar").

This verse alludes to that which HaSh-m has given the righteous the ability to retain the high spiritual levels that they have gained even through the trials and tribulations of Exile.
76)[line 12]"... וְזֶה שְּׁמוֹ אֲשֶׁר יִקְרְאוֹ: ה' צִדְקֵנוּ""... V'ZEH SHEMO ASHER YIKRE'O: HASH-M TZIDKENU"- "... and this shall be the name that he is called: HaSh-m our Righteous One" (Yirmeyahu 23:6). Since Mashi'ach will spread the honor and glory of HaSh-m, he will be called a name that reflects his mission.

And he replied, 'To measure Yerushalayim, to see the measure of its width and the measure of its length'" (Zecharyah 2:6). This verse relates a conversation between the prophet Zecharyah and an angel that he met while it was on a mission from HaSh-m to measure - and thereby limit - the size of Yerushalayim after the arrival of Mashiach.

Tzipori is a city in the lower Galilee, approximately midway between Tiberias and Haifa. It was the center of the Jewish settlement after the destruction of the second Beis ha'Mikdash since the leader of the nation (the Nasi), Rebbi, moved there for its fresh air due to health concerns. It became the seat of the Sanhedrin after the Sanhedrin moved there from Beit She'arim (see Kesuvos 103b, Rosh Hashanah 31b).

This verse is part of a vision that Yechezkel ha'Navi had seen of the third Beis ha'Mikdash. The storage compartments (TY #63) referred to were between the inner and outer walls surrounding the Heichal (TY #67) and Kodesh ha'Kodashim (TY #74). There were three chambers in the height of the walls - five such triple layers each on the north and south side, and three such layers on the west side. The walls were terraced in order support the floors/ceilings, as opposed to a system in which support beams were anchored in holes in the stones. Our Gemara infers that the Navi here also refers to the explosion in size of the city of Yerushalayim.
96)[line 38]מאי "שלש ושלשים פעמים"?MAI "SHALOSH U'SHLOSHIM PE'AMIM"?- what is the meaning of "thirty-three times"? Our Gemara points out that this is an unusual way to describe a set number of objects; a more conventional way would be to simply give the number.

99)[line 41]שמשךMASHACH (KINYAN MESHICHAH - Ways to Acquire Moveable Objects)
(a)One who wishes to acquire an object must perform a Ma'aseh Kinyan - an action that effects the acquisition. Which actions may serve as Halachically valid Kinyanim depend on the type of object being acquired.
(b)Metaltelin (chattel; movable goods) may be acquired through one of the following actions:
1.HAGBAHAH - lifting;
2.MESHICHAH - lit. pulling, which includes causing the object to move in any way;
3.CHATZER - having the object contained within one's domain (see Mishnah, Bava Basra 42a).
4.CHALIPIN - barter;
5.MESIRAH - lit. handing over, such as the reigns of an animal or the tie-lines of a boat.
(c)Meshichah effects a Kinyan in a Reshus ha'Yachid (privately-owned area) or a Simta (semi-private area such as an alleyway), but not in Reshus ha'Rabim (public area). One accomplishes Meshichah by pulling the object toward himself or causing it to move toward himself such as through calling an animal.
(d)Amora'im disagree as to whether Kinyan Meshichah (along with Hagbahah and Mesirah) or Kinyan Kesef (a transfer of money) is the way through which the Torah requires one to acquire Metaltelin (Bava Metzia 47b). Whether it is mid'Oraisa or mid'Rabanan, however, all agree that practically it is necessary to effect a Kinyan on Metaltelin; payment for a object does not effect a transfer of ownership (ibid.).
