The 105th prohibition is that we are forbidden from putting frankincense into the meal offering brought for a sotah (suspected adulteress).

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "he shall not place frankincense on it."

The Sifra2 says, "This verse comes to teach you that if one put in either oil or frankincense, he would be transgressing a prohibition. Just as adding oil is a transgression, so too adding frankincense."3 Therefore, even one who transgresses this prohibition receives lashes.4

The Mechilta5 says, "the verse, 'he shall not place oil on it; he shall not place frankincense on it' teaches that these count as two separate punishments."

And the 100th prohibition is that we are forbidden from offering a the fee of a zonah1 or price of a dog on the altar.

The source of this prohibition is G‑d's statement2 (exalted be He), "Do not bring a prostitute's fee3 or the price of a dog4 [to the Temple of G‑d]."

The details of this mitzvah are explained in the sixth chapter of tractate Temurah. One who offers either of them, although the sacrifice is invalid, receives lashes, as if [he sacrificed] a blemished animal.

(The word "zonah" literally means "prostitute", but is defined here, as well as some other places, as a woman who has had relations with a man she would be Biblically forbidden to marry-J.S.)
