יא: וְכֵן רְאוּבֵן שֶׁהָיָה חַיָּב לְשִׁמְעוֹן מָעוֹת, וּבַהַגִּיעַ זְמַן הַפֵּרָעוֹן אֵין לוֹ מָעוֹת לִרְאוּבֵן, וְהִתְפַּשֵּׁרוּ שֶׁשִּׁמְעוֹן יַמְתִּין לוֹ אֵיזֶה זְמַן, בָּזֶה גַּם כֵּן אֵין תַּקָּנָה בִּשְׁטַר- עִסְקָא, אֶלָּא שֶׁרְאוּבֵן יִמְכֹּר לְשִׁמְעוֹן אֵיזֶה סְחוֹרָה שֶׁיֵּשׁ לוֹ בָּאֹפֶן הַנִּזְכָּר לְעֵיל, וְשִׁמְעוֹן יַחְזִיר לוֹ אֶת שְּׁטַר הַחוֹב שֶׁהָיָה לוֹ עָלָיו מִכְּבָר, וּרְאוּבֵן יִתֵּן לוֹ שְׁטָר עַל הַסְּחוֹרָה אֲשֶׁר קָנָה מֵאִתּוֹ בָּאֹפֶן הַנִּזְכָּר לְעֵיל
