Laws regarding a kohen gadol when he loses a close relative and when he goes to comfort others are discussed.  How does a shura (lines meant to comfort mourners) work?  Originally the people walked in a line and the mourners stood in one place.  Later it was changed to be the reverse due to a fight that ensued between people wanted to be first in line.  Laws of a king regarding judging and being judged mentioned in the mishna are limited to kings of the Israelite kingdom and not the davidic kingdom.  Is a king allowed to not be insistent on the level of respect set up by law?  Does it depend on the situation?  Was David married to both of Shaul’s daughters – Meirav and Michal?   Two different versions of the story of what happened are brought.
