4)[line 29]יבש האילן או נקצץYAVESH HA'ILAN O NIKTZATZ (MASHKANTA D'SURA)

"The Mashkon of Sura," i.e. when the two parties specifically stipulate that when the years of the Mashkon terminate, the field will go back to the debtor and the debt is settled [giving the appearance that the produce has been sold - see also Tosfos to Bava Metzia 67b DH 'be'Mishlam'].

5)[line 30]והוא אוכל פירותV'HU OCHEL PEIROS- and the Malveh (the creditor) eats the produce

6)[line 31]דכי מטי יובלD'KI MATI YOVEL - when the Yovel year arrives (YOVEL)

(a)The year after 7 full Shemitah cycles (of 7 years each) is called the Yovel year. There is an argument among the Tana'im as to whether the 50th year is not counted as one of the years of Shemitah, or whether it is part of the count and is itself both the Yovel and the 1st year of the next Shemitah cycle.

(b)The Halachos of the Shemitah year apply in the Yovel year with regard to not working the land and maintaining the sanctity of the fruits that grow (see Background to Kidushin 58:12). In addition, at the start of the Yovel year, all Jewish slaves (Eved Ivri, see Background to Kidushin 68:7b) are set free and all properties that were sold since the previous Yovel year are returned to their original owners (see Background to Bava Metzia 30:36). On Yom ha'Kipurim of the Yovel Year, Beis Din blows a Shofar to denote that the time has come to set free all of the slaves, as the Torah states in Vayikra 25:9.

(c)There is an argument among the Tana'im as to what is considered the beginning of the Yovel year. According to the Chachamim, Yovel starts with the Shofar blast of Yom ha'Kipurim. According to Rebbi Yochanan ben Berokah, it begins at Rosh ha'Shanah, and the Shofar blast only denotes the completion of the process of freeing the slaves (Rosh Hashanah 8b).

7)[line 31]קא הדרא ארעא למרהKA HADRA AR'A L'MARAH- the land will be returned to its owner (a third party)
