1) [line 1] YORSHEHA, YORSHEI KESUVASAH - her heirs who inherit her Kesuvah, i.e. her husband's relatives
2) [line 2] ALMANAH NIZONES MI'NICHSEI YESOMIM
*3*) [line 3] MI'NICHSEI YESOMIN - that is, the orphans of her dead husband (who are not the widow's own children) must support the widow, but they need not bury her. Rather, her own children, or immediate family, must bury her. (This Beraisa is *not* discussing a Shomeres Yavam, since the husband of a Shomeres Yavam would have left no live children after his death. It is discussing a normal widow, whose husband did not die childless . However, the Gemara is implying from the extra words "Yorshei Kesuvasah" that *had she been* a Shomeres Yavam, her *husband's* family would have to bury her, since they inherit her Kesuvah -- TOSFOS DH Eizehu)
*4*) [line 7] "ACH ANI YORESH, ISHTO EIN ANI KOVER!" - that is, I am only inheriting the property of my brother, and not the Nichsei Tzon Barzel that my brother received from his wife (i.e. the Shomeres Yavam). Since I have not received any benefits from her, why should I be obligated to bury her! (This Gemara is following the opinion -- cited by Rashi 80b DH u'Veis Hillel from Bava Basra 158b -- which maintains that the *Shomeres Yavam's* family retains the Nichsei Tzon Barzel upon her death -- TOSFOS DH v'Leima)
*5*) [line 11] V'IY MISHUM KESUVAH, LO NITNAH KESUVAH LIGAVOS ME'CHAYIM - that is, the husband -- or his brother, in the case of a Shomeres Yavam -- is only required to bury his wife in return for receiving certain benefits through her. If her inherits the Nichsei Tzon Barzel which the wife brought into the marriage, he must bury her. However, if all he keeps from her is the Kesuvah which he promised to give her *should* he die first, it is not considered as if he *received* any benefit from her. The Kesuvah always was his; it only becomes hers *after* he dies (or divorces her). Since he did not die (or, in the case of a Shomeres Yavam, since his brother may still perform Yibum), the Kesuvah was never hers. It is not considered a benefit that he received from her, and it should not obligate his brother, the Yavam, to bury her. (See TOSFOS 53a DH she'Ein; see #9 later on this Daf)
6) [line 15] SHETAR HA'OMED LIGAVOS K'GAVUY DAMI
7) [line 16] SHASU (SOTAH)
8) [line 22] SAFEK ZANA'I - there is a doubt as to whether she had illicit marital relations
*9*) [line 24] V'HA BA'INAN KESHE'TINAS'I L'ACHER TITLI MAH SHE'KASUV LICHI - that is, the Kesuvah specifies that she cannot collect it until *after* he dies and she is permitted to remarry. (This is basically a reiteration of the original question: "The Kesuvah cannot be collected while the husband is alive!" The Gemara is rejecting the proposed answer that "k'Gavuy Dami." Even if that applies to a normal Shtar, it should not apply to a Kesuvah, since the Kesuvah specifies otherwise. The Gemara therefore proposes an entirely new answer: When the childless husband dies, it is as if he became obligated to give his wife the Kesuvah, gave it to her, and his brother re-collected it pending Yibum. Since the woman actually *brought* this Kesuvah into the marriage (i.e. Yibum relationship) with the Yavam, it is comparable to Nichsei Tzon Barzel, which *do* obligate the husband to bury his wife -- TOSFOS DH V'ha, TOSFOS 80b DH Yorshei)
*10*) [line 30] HA'ROTZEH SHE'YIMKOR B'NICHSEI ACHIV - that is, the Yavam (both before or after Yibum) may not sell any of the property which can possibly by used towards the payment of the Kesuvah, because it is Meshubad to the Kesuvah. Although property that is Meshubad towards the payment of a Kesuvah (or a debt) normally *may* be sold, the Chachamim made an exception with regard to the Kesuvah of a Yevamah, and were especially stringent with it (TOSFOS DH ha'Rotzeh).
11) [last line] V'YEFAYEIS - and he can coax [her into giving him permission to sell his brother's properties as long as he leaves properties from which she can collect the value of her Kesuvah]
12) [last line] MEGARESH B'GET - he divorces her with a Get (and sells the extra properties while they are divorced)
13) [line 13] MISHUM EIVAH - enmity (because she will think that he wants to divorce her)
14) [line 15] B'GITA (GET YEVAMIN)
15) [line 27] ATU REBBI CHANINA BAR PAPI, KEIFEI TALA LAH? - Did Rebbi Chanina Bar Papi hang earrings and nose-rings (alt. gems) on it?; i.e. in what way did Rebbi Chanina Bar Papi enhance and strengthen what Rav Yosef said?
16) [line 30] NAFAK RAV YOSEF, DAK V'ASHKACH - (lit. Rav Yosef went out, checked and found) he checked into the sources and found the following Beraisa
17) [line 31] HAREI SHE'HAYAH NOSHEH V'ACHIV U'MES... - when a creditor loans his brother a sum of money and the creditor dies childless leaving his widow in need of Yibum from her brother-in-law, the Yavam (the living brother, the debtor) should not say, "Since I will inherit my brother's property when I do Yibum, it can already be considered as if I have collected the debt that I owe him, and I need not pay."
18) [line 34] DILMA D'TAVA LEI AVDU LEI - perhaps [in this case] they (the Chachamim) were only giving him good advice [and it is not mandatory]
19) [line 39] ZU EINAH MISHNAH - this Beraisa is not reliable
