yoma 69

death, pain and the temple

destroying and blinding the ones who seek our destruction
the evil inclination
the Samaritan

(story about a Samaritan who tried to destroy the Temple ends up being dragged and killed. and a story about trying to destroy the evil inclination for idolatry and illicit sexuality. the idolatrous desire took the form of a lion-cub and was killed in lead box. but the sexual desire could only be blinded or else all reproduction would cease)
