Gittin Daf 33
The Gemara discusses the argument between Rav Nachman and Rav Sheshes if you need to nullify a Get in front of a Beis Din of two or three. Rav Nachman brings a proof that you only need two judges from the following Mishna; 'I hand over (my loans) to you judges, Ploni and Ploni (We see it mentions only two judges on a Beis Din for Pruzbul). Rav Sheshes replies"Atu Tana ki ruchla leichashiv v'leizil"?! - Should the Tana count out [all of the words "v'Peloni" that refer to judges,] like a spice merchant?! We can learn an important lesson from here about our own speech as well. We all should be careful to not be like a "ruchla" a peddler of gossip (Rechilus) and be careful with every word that comes out of our mouth.
