      8. RASHI METHOD: DATABASES
      BRIEF EXPLANATION:Rashi makes inferences from Database queries. The precise definition of database query has been identified in modern times with the 8 operations of Sequential Query Language (SQL).

      This example applies to Rashis Lv11-35b

      Brief Summary: Impure clay utensils have no remedy; they must be broken

We ask the following database query: What remedies does the Torah list for ritual impurity. The reader is encouraged to perform the query using a standard Biblical Konnkordance or search engine. This database query yields the list below. The list justifies the following Rashi-Midrashic inference: Most ritual impurities have remedies. However an earthen-clay vessel that becomes impure has no remedy and must be destroyed. The list below presents the results of the database query.

Verse Item Remedy Verse text
Lv11-25 Carrying Dead rodents Immersion and sunset And whoever carries anything of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening.
Lv15-16 Nocturnal emission Immersion and sunset And if any manís semen goes out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the evening.
Lv15-01:05 Touching bed of a discharger Immersion and sunset Speak to the people of Israel, and say to them, When any man has a discharge out of his flesh, .... Every bed, on which he, who has the discharge, lies, is unclean; .... And whoever touches his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the evening.
Lv11-33 Dead animal in air space of clay vessel No Remedy (destruction) And every earthen utensil, in which any of them [dead rodents] falls, whatever is in it shall be unclean; and you shall break it.
