A new mishnah, starting the final chapter of Ketubot, 13, with mishnayot organized according to the statements of specific ancient judges, with some question regarding exactly when they lived. Which introduces the case of a wife whose husband has gone overseas, and she petitions for sustenance (mezonot), and then she would take an oath regarding her ketubah if he were to die overseas – with a dispute whether she’d need an oath to get the mezonot too. Also, the severity of bribery for judges – why that is the case, and what judges must do in the face of potential bias.
