Kesuvos 47

1) [line 1] MISHUM EIVAH - in order to prevent enmity
2) [line 11] SECHAR PAK'ASAH - the wages for her idleness
3) [line 23] MIMNA V'LO FARIK - he will restrain himself from redeeming her
4) [line 27] KISA NEKITA ILAVAH - she has a purse [full of money] as an investment [from which I have had no benefit]


5) [line 9] D'MISHUM ICHTUNEI HU - it is due to the impending connections through marriage

6) [line 11] TACHAS KESUVASAH - in lieu of the possessions and property (Nichshei Tzon Barzel, see next entry) that she brought into the marriage (that are written in the Kesuvah and that he inherits if she dies before him)

6) [line 12] PEIROS - Fruits of NICHSEI MILUG
A woman brings into her marriage two types of possessions, as follows:

1. Possessions that the wife owned before marriage, the values of which were estimated and written in the Kesuvah, to be returned to her in full upon divorce or the husband's death. These are called Nichsei Tzon Barzel ("Iron Flock Properties") because their value does not change between the time of marriage and the time of divorce or the husband's death.
2. Possessions that were not estimated and their values were not specified in the Kesuvah. Upon divorce or the husband's death, the property is returned as is, regardless of its appreciation or depreciation (or deterioration) over the years. These are referred to as Nichsei Milug ("Properties that are Plucked"), because for the duration of the marriage the husband may take ("pluck") the produce (Peiros) of these possessions (e.g. reaping the fruit of a field, or plowing with an ox). However, he may not "use up" the property itself (e.g. by digging trenches in the field or slaughtering the ox).
7) [line 17] ANUCHEI NANCHINHU - leave them [as a security in case she gets captured]

*8*) [line 20] HAI TANA SAVAR MEZONOS MID'ORAISA - that is, the Tana that we are about to quote maintains that the obligation to feed one's wife Mezonos is mid'Oraisa (and not just mid'Rabanan, as the previously quoted Tana ruled).

9) [line 21] "VA'ASHER ACHLU SHE'AR AMI..." - "Who eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them; and break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as if for the pot, like meat inside the cauldron." (Michah 3:3)
