Mishnah Shabbat 9:6 משנה שבת
R. Akivah saith, "Whence is it [to be inferred] that carrying an idol maketh unclean, even as menstruation doth? From the text, 'Thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth: thou shalt say unto it [the idol], get thee hence.' Even as the carrying of a menstruous cloth defileth, so does likewise the carrying of an idol." אמר רבי עקיבא, מנין לעבודה זרה שמטמאה במשא כנדה.שנאמר (ישעיה ל) תזרם כמו דוה צא תאמר לו.מה נדה מטמאה במשא, אף עבודה זרה מטמאה במשא. Whence is it [to be inferred] that a ship is clean? From the text, "The way of a ship in the heart [midst] of the sea." Whence is it [to be inferred] that in a garden-bed, six hands square, five different kinds of seed may be sown; [i.e.] four [kinds] in the four corners of the garden-bed, and the fifth in the middle? From the text, "For as the earth, bringeth forth her bud, and the garden causeth ‏'zerueha'‎, her seeds, to spring forth." The text does not say, ‏'zarah' [her seed, in the singular, as if of one kind only], but 'zerueha'‎, [her seeds of various kinds]. מנין לספינה שהיא טהורה.שנאמר (משלי ל) דרך אניה בלב ים.מנין לערוגה שהיא ששה על ששה טפחים שזורעין בתוכה חמשה זרעונין, ארבעה בארבע רוחות הערוגה ואחד באמצע.שנאמר (ישעיה סא) כי כארץ תוציא צמחה וכגנה זרועיה תצמיח, זרעה לא נאמר, אלא זרועיה. Whence is it [to be inferred] that a woman who sheds semen on the third day [after coition] is unclean? From the text, "And be ye ready against the third day." Whence is it [to be inferred] that a circumcised infant is to be bathed [washed] on the third day [after circumcision], even though that falls on the Sabbath? From the text, "And it came to pass on the third day, when they were sore," Whence is it [to be inferred] that a red string is to be tied to the head of the scapegoat? From the text, "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall become white as snow." מנין לפולטת שכבת זרע ביום השלישי שהיא טמאה.שנאמר (שמות יט) היו נכונים לשלשת ימים.מנין שמרחיצין את המילה ביום השלישי שחל להיות בשבת.שנאמר (בראשית לד) ויהי ביום השלישי בהיותם כאבים.מנין שקושרין לשון של זהורית בראש שעיר המשתלח.שנאמר (ישעיה א) אם יהיו חטאיכם כשנים כשלג ילבינו. Whence is it [to be inferred] that anointing is [as unlawful] as drinking on the day of atonement? Although there is no [absolute proof] for this assertion, there is an indication thereof in the text, "Let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones." מנין לסיכה שהיא כשתיה ביום הכפורים.אף על פי שאין ראיה לדבר, זכר לדבר, שנאמר (תהלים קט) ותבא כמים בקרבו וכשמן בעצמותיו. He [is likewise guilty] who carries out wood sufficient to boil a light egg, spices sufficient to season a light egg; and [different kinds of spice are to be] computed together. Nut-shells, pomegranate peels, isatis [woad], and madder, sufficient to dye a small cap-cloth; urine, alum, ‏alkaline salt‎, and creta-cimolia and ‏frothy soap‎, sufficient to wash a small cap-cloth. R. Jehudah saith, "sufficient to pass over a blood-stain, [by way of experiment to see if it can be taken out]." המוציא עצים, כדי לבשל ביצה קלה .תבלין , כדי לתבל ביצה קלה, ומצטרפין זה עם זה.קלפי אגוזים, קלפי רמונים, אסטיס ופואה, כדי לצבע בהן בגד קטן בסבכה.מי רגלים, נתר ובורית, קמוניא ואשלג, כדי לכבס בהן בגד קטן בסבכה.רבי יהודה אומר, כדי להעביר על הכתם. Pimento the smallest quantity, extract of pitch the smallest quantity; all kinds of spice [perfumes] and of metals [ores] the smallest quantity. Altar stones and altar dust, fragments of rolls of the law, and fragments of their wrappers [gnawed to pieces by moths] the smallest quantity; because these things are preserved to be secreted. R. Jehudah saith, also, "whoever carries out the smallest quantity of what has been used for idol-worship; for it is said, 'And there shall cleave nought of the accursed thing to thine hand.'" פלפלת, כל שהיא.ועטרן, כל שהוא.מיני בשמים ומיני מתכות, כל שהן.מאבני המזבח ומעפר המזבח, מקק ספרים ומקק מטפחותיהם, כל שהן, שמצניעין אותן לגנזן.רבי יהודה אומר, אף המוציא ממשמשי עבודה זרה, כל שהוא, שנאמר (דברים יג) ולא ידבק בידך מאומה מן החרם. If a man carry out the box of a dealer in spices [apothecary], although there be various kinds [of spice] therein, he is [only] bound to bring one sin-offering. Garden seeds, [rather] less than the size of a dried fig. R. Jehudah ben Bethera saith, "Five [things there are of which, should a man carry the smallest quantity, he is guilty], cucumber seeds two [grains],pumpkin seeds two [grains],Egyptian bean-seed [two grains], a clean live grasshopper any portion [however small], [if it be] dead the size of a dried fig. A vineyard bird any [the smallest] portion [be it] dead or alive." R. Jehudah saith, "He likewise [is guilty]who carries out any [the smallest] portion of an unclean live grasshopper, because these are preserved for children to play with." המוציא קפת הרוכלין, אף על פי שיש בה מינין הרבה, אינו חיב אלא חטאת אחת.זרעוני גנה, פחות מכגרוגרת .רבי יהודה (בן בתירא) אומר, חמשה .זרע קשואין, שנים.זרע דלועין, שנים.זרע פול המצרי, שנים.חגב חי טהור, כל שהוא.מת, כגרוגרת.צפרת כרמים, בין חיה בין מתה, כל שהיא, שמצניעין אותה לרפואה.רבי יהודה אומר, אף המוציא חגב חי טמא, כל שהוא, שמצניעין אותו לקטן לשחק בו.

A Text's Structure is represented by the hieracrchy of different types of sections that make up the text.

For example, texts of the Tanach like Genesis are divided into "Chapters" which are then divided into "Verses".

Larger texts, such as the Mishneh Torah, may have more levels in their hierarchy, for example "Book" > "Section" > "Chapter" > "Law".

Shorthands are alternative ways of refering to a particular point or passage in a text.

For example "Rambam, Hilchot Tshuva" is shorter and more common way to refer to the 7th topic in the first book of Mishneh Torah. From Sefaria's perpective, this segment of text is "Mishneh Torah 1:7", but we we want to capture more human readable forms.

Shorthands are also used to capture multiple ways to refer to a text. For example, since Sefaria stores Genesis in terms of chapters and verses, "Parsha Toledot" is a shorthand for "Genesis 25:19-28:9".

Enter the shorthand text in the box on the left, then enter either a single reference or a range on the right.
