3)[line 22]צא ותרוםTZEI U'TEROM - go out and separate Terumah (TERUMAH: SHALI'ACH)

(a)After a crop is harvested and brought to the owner's house or yard, he must separate Terumah Gedolah from the crop and give it to a Kohen. Although the Torah does not specify the amount to be given, the Rabanan set the requirement at one fiftieth of the total crop. More generous landowners separate one fortieth while the less generous separate one sixtieth.

(b)The Gemara (Kidushin 41b) derives from the verse (Bamidbar 18:28) that a landowner may appoint a Shali'ach to separate Terumah on his behalf. The verse says, "Ken Tarimu Gam Atem..." - "Thus you also shall offer an offering to Hash-m of all your tithes." The words, "Gam Atem" ("you also"), teach that an agent may separate Terumah, as long as he is like "you," meaning that he does so with the knowledge and consent of the owner.

4)[line 22]והלך ומצא תרוםV'HALACH U'MATZA TARUM- and he (the Shali'ach) went and found that Terumah had already been separated

19)[last line]טמאיןTEME'IN - they are [fit to become] Tamei (TUM'AS KELI: KATAN)

A utensil is considered "ready" to receive Tum'ah only after it is completely finished. If the artisan only decided that the utensil needs no more work, it is considered complete and may become Tamei. The Mishnah in Kelim (17:15) teaches that a Katan can cause a utensil to become ready to receive Tum'ah by doing an act to the object that clearly shows that it is completely finished.
