1) [line 4] MENUKEH ME'AVON - clear (lit. cleaned) of sin, i.e. that he did not have relations with his wife from the time that she became prohibited to him (RASHI) or with any other woman who is prohibited to him (RASHI to Sotah 47b)
2) [line 19] L'TZAVA'AH - (lit. as a command) that HaSh-m commands the water and decrees upon it that it should poison her (Bamidbar 5:24)
3) [line 20] L'ASIYAH - (lit. for action) to let Benei Yisrael know that HaSh-m insures that the test of the Mei Sotah will work (ibid. 5:27)
4) [line 21] L'YEDI'AH - (lit. for knowledge) to let it be known that the punishment will effect the belly first and afterwards the thigh (which is contrary to the order of the curse) (ibid. 5:22)
5) [line 25] "LATZBOS BETEN V'LANPIL YARECH" - "to cause the belly to swell out and the thigh to rupture" (Bamidbar 5:22) - This verse is written without the feminine possessive and as such Rebbi learns from it that the adulterer receives the same punishment as the Sotah woman.
6) [line 31] D'MODA LAH KOHEN - [In that verse,] the Kohen lets her know [the order of the impending punishment]
7) [line 32] L'HOTZI LA'AZ - to cause bad rumors to be spoken [about the Mei Sotah]
8) [line 41] GERUSHAH SHE'MUTERES LI'TERUMAH
(a) A non-Kohen may not eat Terumah. A Kohen's wife, who is not herself a Kohenes (the daughter of a Kohen), eats Terumah as long as her husband or any of their offspring are alive, as is learned from the verses (Vayikra 22:11, Bamidbar 18:11) and the Gemara (Nidah 44a). The Kohen's wife must be at least three years old for this Halachah to apply.
(b) Similarly, a Kohenes normally eats Terumah until she becomes married to a non-Kohen. If he dies or divorces her and they have no living offspring, she may return to her father's house and eat Terumah as long as she has not become a Chalalah (see Background to Sotah 23:1).
9) [line 46] SHERETZ (TUM'AS SHERETZ)
A Sheretz, even if it is only the size of an Adashah (lentil bean), is an Av ha'Tum'ah. It makes a person or object Tamei through Maga (contact), whether the Sheretz was touched willingly or unwillingly. The person who becomes Tamei by touching a Sheretz may not eat Terumah or Kodshim. However, he can immediately immerse in a Mikvah. After nightfall he becomes Tahor and may eat Terumah or Kodshim.
