Chapter 1, Mishna 6-12
A series of digressions in the Mishna based on the structure, “The only difference between x and y is…” Vows not to benefit from another or his food. Animals consecrated as vow offerings vs gift offerings. The emissions of a zav. The possible vs confirmed metzora – one suffering from the physical expression of a spiritual malady of ancient Israel known as tzaraas. Torah scrolls vs tefillin/mezuzah scrolls leads to a discussion of Greek vs other language translations of the Torah, Ashurit vs Ivrit script. High Priest who took office before the anointing oil was hidden away vs. after. Former High Priest vs. current High Priest. Public altars outside the Temple vs. private altars.
