comment Goshen, the most immoral part of Mitzrayim
@sethJ (Rashi says the word Ervah not Tumah). I think it is a bit of both. The Rashi would seem to be more natural and the first vort would seem to be a Hanhagah of Hashem!

agreed, but the only difference between Tehillim is the plural. I doubt that the meaning would have changed. +1 for noting the Nusach Ari, it makes it even more interesing. When was it first printed and what was the format then?

comment Amira Lakum: say you can't say?
@sam That Mishnah Brurah actually asks my question of how you get around the problem of being Neheneh from a Maaseh from a Goy on Shabbos. He answers that in his case he already could read and his reading ability only improved, so it is not counted as a proper Hana'ah! In the air-con case however, it is making the room properly warm whereas before it was cold. Once again, perhaps Kivuy of Air-Con is not called Hanaah too.

comment Amira Lakum: say you can't say?
can you source your presumption that one can hint and say "it is cold in here", hoping he will realize and shut the air conditioner? Its not that simple at all. If it cold enough for the people nearby to be considered to be a Choleh, one may say it outright. If it is not so cold, then I dont really see why it is Muttar. Why isnt it benefiting from a Malacha of a Goy that was done for a Yid that is Ossur. Perhaps though 'shutting off' is not benefiting!
