כריתות פרק ו׳ משנה ז׳


In the case of one who designates a sin offering for his performance of an unwitting sin and dies, his son shall not bring it in his stead, neither on behalf of his father nor for his own unwitting sin, even if it was the same transgression. Likewise, one may not bring a sin offering by reassigning it from the sin for which it is designated to atone and sacrificing it for atonement of another sin.

לא יביאנה בנו אחריו – if the son sinned unwittingly with the unwitting sin-offering, he should not bring a sin-offering that his father had separated in order through it, he will achieve atonement on his inadvertent act.

לא יביאנה בנו אחריו. אם שגג הבן בשגגת חטאת, לא יביא חטאת שהפריש אביו כדי שיכופר בה על שגגתו:
