1a)[line 3]ברטיבתאRETIVTA- moist (the pit of the winepress is still moist with the wine of the Nochri, and thus ashes must be used first to dry the area before it can be cleaned)

Shmuel counts three processes (ashes, water, ashes) that are necessary for a moist winepress, and four processes (water, ashes, water, ashes) that are necessary for a dry one.

39)[line 8]שרץSHERETZ

(a)A dead Sheretz (a crawling pest - see Background to Shabbos 107:5), even if it or a part of it is only the size of an Adashah (lentil bean), is an Av ha'Tum'ah (Vayikra 11:29-38, Chagigah 11a). It makes a person or object Tamei through Maga (contact), whether the Sheretz was touched willingly or unwillingly.

(b)The person who becomes Tamei by touching a Sheretz may not eat Terumah or Kodshim or enter the Azarah of the Beis ha'Mikdash. However, he can immediately immerse in a Mikvah. After nightfall he becomes Tahor and may eat Terumah or Kodshim or enter the Azarah.

41)[line 10]לא מפסק ולא מידיLO MAFSAK V'LO MIDI- there is nothing intervening [between the Sheretz and all of the olives and oil in the crushing stone, as the liquid joins them together and transfers the Tum'ah to everything there]

43)[line 15]את שדרכו להטבילES SHE'DARKO L'HATBIL- that type of utensil whose normal manner [of purification] is to immerse it in a Mikvah (that is, such a utensil was used only for cold items, and thus it suffices to immerse it in a Mikvah)

(b)Through this process, the prohibited substance that entered the walls of the utensil through boiling will be expelled through boiling.

46)[line 16]ילבן באוּרYELABEN B'UR - he shall heat it in fire (LIBUN)

(Bamidbar 31:23) - This verse refers to Hechsher Kelim, purifying utensils from the forbidden matter that has entered into their walls. Our Sugya brings this verse as the source that utensils obtained from a Nochri to be used with food must also be immersed in a Mikvah.

50)[line 23]הזאה שלישי ושביעיHAZA'AH SHELISHI U'SHEVI'I - sprinkling on the third and seventh days (TUM'AS MES)

(a)If a person became Tamei through touching a Mes or an object that was Tamei with Tum'as Mes, or by carrying or being in the same room as a Mes, he must wait seven days to become Tahor. On the third and seventh days, the person or object must have spring water mixed with the ashes of the Parah Adumah (Mei Chatas, see Background to Avodah Zarah 46:19) sprinkled on him. A person who is Tahor dips into the mixture three Ezov branches that have been bound together, and sprinkles on the person or object that is Tamei. After the mixture is sprinkled on him on the seventh day, he immerses in a Mikvah in order to complete his Taharah. (Bamidbar 19:17-19)

(b)The Gemara here asks that perhaps such a procedure is necessary for the purification of utensils purchased from Nochrim.
