*13*) [line 1] D'ARGIL HU KETATAH - that is, the husband started the quarrel, until the wife got so upset that she said "You divorced me!". (In such a case, although the wife is upset with the husband, she is not so upset that she would lie in order to be rid of him and remarry. Therefore, according to those who maintain that a quarreling wife bases her testimony on conjecture (bid'Dami), the wife whose husband started a quarrel might base her testimony on conjecture since she is quarreling with him. According to those who maintain that a quarreling wife lies to be rid of her husband, but does not base her testimony on conjecture, the wife will not lie in this case since she still loves her husband, even though he is quarreling with her. TOSFOS DH Ika; see MAHARAM and Insights.)

On the third and seventh days he must have spring water mixed with the ashes of the Parah Adumah (Mei Chatas) sprinkled on him. A person who is Tahor dips three Ezov branches (hyssops) that have been bound together into the mixture, and sprinkles them on the person who is Tamei. On the seventh day, he immerses in a Mikvah after the mixture is sprinkled on him in order to complete his Taharah. (Bamidbar 19:17-19)
(b) EFER CHATAS - The ashes of the Parah Adumah
The Parah Adumah, an exclusively red-haired female cow is burned on Har ha'Zeisim and its ashes are used for making a person Tahor if he is Tamei Mes. Only a cow that has not had a yoke placed upon it and has had no other work done with it is fit to be used as a Parah Adumah. A place is prepared for its slaughter on Har ha'Zeisim, opposite the gate to the Azarah (the courtyard of the Beis ha'Mikdash). After it is slaughtered, its blood is sprinkled in the direction of the Beis ha'Mikdash seven times. A cedar branch, some Ezov branches and a piece of crimson wool are thrown into the carcass of the cow while it is burning. (Bamidbar 19:1-22)
