Kesuvos 62

1) [line 2] "...L'CHOL DEVAR HA'MACHLEKOS...CHODESH B'CHODESH..." - "[And the people of Yisrael according to their number, the heads of fathers' houses and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers who served the king] in all matters concerning the divisions that came and went, *month after month* throughout the year, [each division numbering twenty-four thousand.]" (Divrei ha'Yamim I 27:1)

2) [line 9] HARVACHAH - income; profit
*3*) [line 9] AMAR RAV, ANACHAH SHOVERES... - the connection between this and the previous discussion in the Gemara is that in both of them, Rav and Rebbi Yochanan argue, and Rebbi Yochanan doubles the amount that Rav states (RASHI). The two arguments might have a logical connection as well. Because Rebbi Yochanan considers a sigh to be twice as painful as Rav considers it to be, he insists that the husband should be at home with his wife twice as long as Rav says. The HAGAHOS YA'AVETZ adds that the Gemara is interested in proving that a sigh makes Tashmish more difficult (which explains the expression "Shivron *Masnayim*" with relation to a sigh).

6) [line 14] "...V'NAMES..." - "[And it shall be, when they say to you, 'Why do you sigh?' that you shall answer, 'For the tidings; because it comes;] and [every heart] shall melt, [and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water; behold, it comes, and shall be brought to pass, says HaSh-m.]" (Yechezkel 21:12)

8) [line 19] D'TAKIFA TUVA - it is more severe
9) [line 21] LO IMTZI OVED KOCHAVIM LI'SEGUYEI BAHADI YISRAEL - the Nochri was not able to keep up with the Jew

(The Gemara relates this in order to show that Rebbi Chanina was so eager to get to Yeshiva that he could not even wait the short while he was bidden in order to have such an outstanding Chavrusa as Rebbi Shimon bar Yochai -- SICHOS MUSAR of Harav Chaim Shmuelevitz, 5731:16)
