A case of an ox that falls into a 6-tephachim deep irrigation ditch, which injured it, perhaps fatally. Plus, a new mishnah about a pit that has 2 owners – and their respective liabilities. Where the order of their actions makes a difference in terms of obligation to pay. And which ends up being a very specific case. Also, the discussion shifts to filling bottles with water that they both can draw and then the old discussion of “bereirah,” designations that help define responsibility.
