 The reason: Possibly, the reason is because the Sota would bring an offering of barley, similar to the Omer offering. [Igros Kodesh 18:412] Just as barley contains good and waist, and needs to be refined, so too the Sota needs to be refined of her sin. [Toras Menachem 26:33] This connection is also revealed in the fact that Tractate Sota contains 49 pages, corresponding to the 49 days of the Omer. [Toras Menachem 5746 3:253]
