1. A man gives a lamb to a Zonah prior to the Bi'ah. He tells her to hold on to it until the Bi'ah, but if she needs it she may be Koneh it immediately. If she brings it as a Korban, the Korban is valid.
2. If the Zonah was Makdish the lamb but did yet bring it as a Korban, it is a Safek if it may be brought as a Korban.
3. A man gives a lamb to a Zonah and designates the lamb as payment for the Bi'ah. It may not be brought as a Korban.
4. If he did not designate the lamb at the time of the Bi'ah, it may be brought as a Korban.
5. If a person tells his workers to take a Dinar and buy produce with it, he need not be concerned that they might buy produce of Shevi'is, Ma'aser, or Yayin Nesech.
6. If a person tells his workers, "Buy produce and I will pay for it," he must be concerned that they will buy Shevi'is, Ma'aser, or Yayin Nesech.
7. If a person instructs his friend, "Give a Maneh to Ploni and my property will be acquired to you," the friend is Koneh the property with the law of an Arev.
8. If a person is hired to break barrels of wine of Yayin Nesech, even though he wants the barrels to remain intact until he breaks them himself, the wages are permitted.
A BIT MORE
1. Since she went ahead and brought the lamb as a Korban and it was not in existence at the time of the Bi'ah, it is not considered to be an exchange for the Bi'ah, and the Korban is valid.
2. The Safek is that it might be considered as though it was already brought for a Korban, since an Amirah to Hekdesh is akin to a transfer to a Hedyot. On the other hand, perhaps since the lamb is in existence at the time of the Bi'ah, it is regarded as an exchange for the Bi'ah. It may not be brought as a Korban.
3. If the Zonah is a Nochris, she acquires the lamb the lamb (and it becomes forbidden) through the act of Bi'ah (by giving him something of value, since a Nochri is not Koneh with Meshichah). If she is Jewish, she acquires the lamb only if it is in her courtyard at the time of the Bi'ah.
4. Since the lamb was not designated at the time of the Bi'ah, it is not considered to be an exchange for the Bi'ah.
5. Even if the workers are Amei ha'Aretz to whom one is forbidden to give produce of Shevi'is, he need not be concerned they will buy produce of Shevi'is or produce of Tevel. He gave them money and not produce. Similarly, if the workers are Nochrim, he need not be concerned that they will buy wine that will become Yayin Nesech.
6. Rav Papa explains that this concern exists in a case in which the person gives the seller a Dinar as a prepayment. Since he already paid for the produce it is regarded as though he is feeding his workers the produce. Rav Ashi explains that the concern exists when he took the produce from the seller and handed it to the workers.
7. Although the owner of the property did not acquire anything, his property is Meshubad to the supplier, just as the property of a guarantor is Meshubad to the debt even though he did not receive anything.
8. Since he is ridding the world of Avodah Zarah, the wages are permitted, and he should be blessed for his initiative.
