Chapter 3, Mishna 1
Meal offering of sotah: priest shall take offering of jealousy out of woman’s hand. But what about shomer negiah? Jerusalem Talmud: it’s only for a short time, plus priest’s hand didn’t touch her hand directly according to some opinions. Does priest offer meal offering and then she drinks or vice versa? If scroll is erased and woman refuses to drink, she is forced to drink? Akiva said not necessary to force her to drink. If she doesn’t drink it, it’s a confession. Until handful is sacrificed she can retract her decision not to drink. Maybe she’s innocent but still terrified to drink water.
