Mishnah Uktzin 3:11: Beginning when do honeycombs become susceptible to being rendered impure as liquids? Beit Shammai say: once one stirs it up [by smoking the bees out, or heating it]. And Beit Hillel says: once one breaks it apart [to remove the honey].

חַלּוֹת דְּבַשׁ, מֵאֵימָתַי מִטַּמְּאוֹת מִשּׁוּם מַשְׁקֶה. בֵּית שַׁמַּאי אוֹמְרִים, מִשֶּׁיְּחַרְחֵר. בֵּית הִלֵּל אוֹמְרִים, מִשֶּׁיְּרַסֵּק:

Mishnah Uktzin 3:12: Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi said: In the future, the Holy One, blessed be He, will bequeath to each and every righteous person three hundred and ten worlds, as the verse says, (Proverbs 8:21), "To bequeath substance [literally: 'yesh,' the numerical value of which is three-hundred and ten] to My loved ones, and I shall fill their treasuries." Rabbi Shimon ben Chalafta said: The Holy One, blessed be He, found no vessel that can [sufficiently] hold the blessing for Israel, save for peace, as the verse says, (Psalms 29:11) "Hashem will give strength to His nation, Hashem will bless His nation with peace."
