Previous daf

Kesuvos 58

1) [line 1] KUVYUSTUS - (a) a kidnapper (RASHI); (b) a gambler (apecifically, one who rolls dice) (RABEINU CHANANEL)

2) [line 1] LISTIM MEZUYAN - an armed bandit
3) [line 2] MUCHTAV LA'MALCHUS - a slave upon whom there is a death warrant from the government that he should killed by anyone who finds him

4) [line 17] SHETEI YADOS - two parts, i.e. two thirds
5) [line 20] KOL MAKOM SHE'HUZKERAH TERUMAH, NOSNIN LAH KIFLAYIM B'CHULIN - wherever [the obligation to give her] Terumah is mentioned, we give her twice as much Terumah as Chulin (so that she can sell the Terumah readily at a low price)


6a) [line 5] MA'ASEH YEDEI ISHTO - the goods produced by one's wife The Mishnah in Kesuvos (64b) states that a woman must produce the weight of five Sela'im of Shesi (spun warp thread, the longitudinal thread of the loom, which is thinner and harder to make than the woof thread, the latitudinal thread) in Yehudah. This amount is equal to ten Sela'im of Shesi in the Galil, since the Sela of Yehudah weighs twice as much as the Sela of the Galil. Alternatively, she may produce the weight of ten Sela'im of Erev (woof) in Yehudah, equal to twenty Sela'im of Erev in the Galil.

b) [line 6] HA'MOSAR - the amount that one's wife produces over and above the amount prescribed in the Mishnah (ibid.)

7) [line 19] ASEH IMI V'EINI ZANCHA - work for me but I will not feed you
8) [line 20] "IMACH" - "[And it shall be, if he (the Jewish slave) says to you, 'I will not go away from you;' because he loves you and your house, because he is well-off] with you;" (Devarim 15:16)

There is a Machlokes Tana'im as to whether a person can designate as Hekdesh (consecrate) anything that has not as yet emerged into the world, such as the fruits of a tree or the goods to be produced by his wife.

*10*) [line 27] SHE'YACHOL L'CHOFAH L'MA'ASEH YADEHA - because he can force her to work (Nevertheless, he can only prohibit her Mosar and not her Ma'aseh Yadayim, since the Mishnah is discussing a specific situation in which the husband is allowed to keep only his wife's Mosar but not his wife's Ma'aseh Yadayim -- as the Gemara explains at the end of the page -- TOSFOS.)

11) [line 28] YIKADSHU YADAYICH L'OSEIHEM - [the produce of] your hands shall be consecrated to their Maker (RASHI to Kidushin 63a, TOSFOS DH Yikadshu)

Rebbi Meir is of the opinion that a person does not utter words for no purpose; therefore, when a person's statement seems to be nonsensical, we "read into" his words a more plausible explanation.

13) [line 43] HAVI BAH RAV PAPA - Rav Papa wondered about [the Machlokes Amora'im that we have been discussing]
