Brachos 33 – ברכות לג

The Gemara says that there were two ‘nekamos’ (revenges) one was good and one bad.  Rashi explains the bad nekama was Hashem’s vengeance on the nations for rejecting the Torah, and the good was Hashem’s freeing their mammon to Yisroel on account of their refusal to receive the Torah.  If it is viewed from the nations’ perspective then certainly both can be considered bad revenges, alternately if we are viewing from Yisroel’s viewpoint they are both considered good, why then do we say that one is bad and one good?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

According to Rebbi Akiva, five complete onas are required, to be completed with the sixth when missing part of the fifth.  In this case, the sixth will inevitably be of a different nature than the fifth (one day the other night) with a different length.  How can one compensate for the other?

Meraimar responded that there was actually no Tvul Yom present at receiving the Torah.  Can this be proven from a source, or was it known from tradition?

Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

According to Rav Chisda’s interpretation, our Mishna informs that even decay form scrolls written in other languages require geniza (just as by ordinary scrolls).  Why would one think to say otherwise?

Eruvin 21 – עירובין כא

Rebbi Akiva insisted to use the water for Netilas Yadayim rather than for drinking.  How is one allowed to endanger his life for a Mitzva Derabanan?

The Gemara tells us elsewhere that Dovid Hamelech was punished for referring to the Torah as ‘Zemiros’; whereas in our Gemara we find Torah referred to as ‘Shira’ (Vayehi shiro)–  what is the difference between these two terms?
