1. Ameimar: If a husband or wife sells property that the wife brought into the marriage, the sale is not valid.
2. The Gemara discusses the case of a person who sells an Eved Kena'ani on condition that he retains his services for 30 days.
3. Rebbi Meir: The original owner has the law of "Yom O Yomayim" for these 30 days, and the buyer does not.
4. The Gemara discusses the reasoning behind the argument between Rebbi Meir and Rebbi Yehudah.
5. The Gemara quotes two more opinions in this case.


1. If one of them sold the property and then died, the other may take it away from the buyer.
2. The discussion is relevant to the question of who has the law of "Yom O Yomayim." This law states that the owner of an Eved Kena'ani who hits his servant, causing him to die within two days, is exempt from the death penalty. This law applies only to the slave's actual owner. Any other person who mortally hits a slave is liable to the death penalty.
3. Rebbi Yehudah: The buyer has the law of "Yom O Yomayim" from the moment that he buys the servant, and the seller does not.
4. Rebbi Meir: Acquiring the services is like acquiring the slave, and therefore the original owner who owns the services is considered the owner for those 30 days. Rebbi Yehudah: The law of "Yom O Yomayim" applies only to the actual owner, because owning services is not the same as owning the slave.
5. Rebbi Yosi: Neither owner is liable for killing the slave during this time, because it is uncertain whether the seller or buyer is considered the owner during this time (and one cannot be put to death out of doubt). Rebbi Elazar: Neither one has the exemption of "Yom O Yomayim," and therefore if either one of them kills the slave, he is put to death.
