Chapter 3, Mishna 2
Rabbi Yochanan and Reish Lakish argue about person who vows nazirus while in cemetery. Is he flogged? Does he shave? If so, when? If nazir touches a corpse and goes through 7 day period of purification, he must shave afterwards. Discussion of archeological evidence: if teaching addresses one aspect of a law, that doesn’t imply there aren’t other aspects of the law that are important. If a nazir is in a sealed wooden box and comes into contact with corpse. Difference between ritually impure person and vowed nazirus vs pure person vowed of nazirus and then became impure. A confirmed metzora is tamei. Tzaraas tumah days don’t count but don’t negate days that came before.
