The Koren Talmud Bavli Noé
Rabbi Adin Even-Israel Steinsaltz
Tractate Nazir is located in the order of Nashim, usually after tractate Nedarim and before tractate Sota. The content of the tractate is not directly related to the order of Nashim, and the Gemara discusses this problem. However, since the passage in the Torah that speaks of the nazirite (Numbers, chapter 6) is juxtaposed to the passage in the Torah that speaks of a woman suspected by her husband of having been unfaithful [sota] (Numbers, chapter 5), tractate Nazir was similarly placed next to tractate Sota in the Mishna. The entire tractate deals with the halakhot of a nazirite and with some of the halakhot of vows, offerings, and ritual purity and impurity.
