...One who acquires from an idol worshipper a meal vessel of metal or glass or vessels or covered in lead from the inside - even though they are new one must dunk them in a mikvah or a stream that is forty se'ot. GLOSS: There are those who says that vessels that are covered in lead even on the inside are dunked in a mikvah without a blessing, and this is how we act.
The vessel must be loose in your hands at the time of dunking, for if it is tight in your hands it is an interposition, and if you dampen your hand in the water at the outset there is no need to worry (GLOSS: and specifically that you dampened your hands in the waters of the Mikvah but not in water that is detached).
Bless "on the dipping of a vessel", and if there are two or more bless "on the dipping of vessels".
Tripods upon which we set upon them large pots do not require dunking but parillas [barbecue grills] require dipping because the actual food is placed on them.
A shechita [ie ritual slaughter] knife (GLOSS: or a knife for undressing) - there are those who say that it does not require dunking. GLOSS: And there are those who disagree, and it is good to dunk it without a blessing. The irons upon which Matzot [unleavened breads] are repaired do not require dunking. And so too a covering which we force onto the bread to bake it. But a covering for a large pot requires dunking.
A wooden vessel which has iron hoops on the outside for holding it up does not require dunking.
A silver cup which is connected to a wooden vessel requires dunking. GLOSS: And so too pepper millstones which within the wood there is iron affixed for grinding require dunking. And so too iron funnels or tappings of iron and other metals - all of them require dunking. And specifically that the essence of the vessel is metal, but if the essence of the vessel is wood only if some iron is affixed to it since in order to use it without the iron dunking is not required, but a vessel which is repaired with iron rods, and without the rods one would not be able to use it, and they are on the inside - dunking is required.
One who borrows or rents a vessel from an idol worshipper does not need to dunk, but if an Israelite acquires it from an idol worshipper and lends it to a friend it requires dunking as [dunking] was already required by the first person. And there are those who say that if the first person did not take it for the purpose of a meal, rather only for cutting parchments and the like, he is not required to dunk it. GLOSS: But it is forbidden for the first person to use it for the needs of a meal, even on a temporary basis, without dunking although he acquired it the purpose of [cutting] parchments. And so too if the second Israelite acquired it from the first for the purpose of meals the second must dunk it.
If an idol worshipper provides a vessel as a loan guarantee to an Israelite [ie as collateral] - if it appears in the mind of the idol worshipper that it is permanent in his hand, dunking is required, and if not, dunk without a blessing or acquire a different vessel and dunk. (GLOSS: and if in the end it becomes permanent in his hand, dunk without a blessing).
...An Israelite who gave silver to an idol-worshipping artisan to make a vessel from it does not require dunking. GLOSS: And there are those who disagree and say to dunk without a blessing. And if some of the silver used to make the vessel was owned by the idol worshipper, dunking is required. And thus an Israelite artisan who makes a vessel for an idol worshipper and acquires it from him shall dunk, also without a blessing if the idol worshipper gave him the metals, but if [the Israelite artisan] makes it himself and only acquired the metals from the idol worshipper or if he gave some metals of his own, dunking is not required.
An Israelite who sells a vessel to an idol worshipper and returns and takes it from him - dunking is required. But if [the idol worshipper] holds it as collateral and [the Israelite] returns and redeems it, it does not require dunking. GLOSS: An Israelite and an idol worshipper who acquire a vessel in partnership - it does not require dunking. An Israelite whose vessel was robbed or stolen and returned to him - dunking is not required. But a minister or governor who forced an Israelite and took his vessel and returned it to him, dunking is required because it already became permanent in the hand of the idol worshipper.
One must dunk the handles of the vessel.
One must remove the rust before dunking, and if one did not remove - if he is careful about it, it is a separation. And if he rubs and puts it on coals and there remains there a bit of rust which is not removable this way, It is considered a minority that [the owner] is not particular about and it is not [considered] a separation.
One may not believe [ie rely on] a child regarding dunking of vessels. (GLOSS: But if [the child] dunks before an adult, it is considered a dunking).
If one dunked vessels alongside an idol worshipper, it is a dunking (GLOSS: But one may not believe [ie trust] [an idol worhsipper] regarding dunking).
If one forgot and did not dunk from the eve of the Sabbath or the eve of a holiday, give it to an idol worshipper as a gift and afterwards borrow it from him and one may use it. GLOSS: And this is how it's done even on regular day in a place where there is no mikvah. And if one mistakenly uses the vessel without dunking - the food he used it for is not forbidden, and he shall dunk it thereafter.
