Mishnayos Kinnim Perek 3 Mishnah 3

קינים פרק ג׳ משנה ג׳


If the hatats belonged to one and the olot to another, and the priest offered them all above, then half are valid and half disqualified. If he offered them all below, half are valid and half disqualified. If he offered half of them above and half below, then all of them are disqualified, because I can argue that the hatats were offered above and the olot below.

חַטָּאת לָזוֹ, וְעוֹלָה לָזוֹ, עָשָׂה כֻלָּן לְמַעְלָן, מֶחֱצָה כָשֵׁר וּמֶחֱצָה פָסוּל. כֻּלָּן לְמַטָּן, מֱחֱצָה כָשֵׁר וּמֶחֱצָה פָסוּל. חֶצְיָן לְמַעְלָן וְחֶצְיָן לְמַטָּן, שְׁתֵּיהֶן פָּסוּל, שֶׁאֲנִי אוֹמֵר, חַטָּאת קְרֵבָה לְמַעְלָן וְעוֹלָה לְמַטָּן:


חטאת לזו ועולה לזו – this also refers to that which is taught above in the first chapter [of Tractate Kinnim, Mishnah 3], a burnt-offering that became mixed/combined with a sin-offering or the opposite, all of them are left to die. And these words [apply] when [the priest] made inquiry on the mixture and made [the offering] of one couple of sacrificial birds above [the red line] and one couple of sacrificial birds below [the red line], half of them are kosher/fit and half of them are invalid. But even though that he did not come to make inquiry, we state to him that he (i.e., the Kohen) should not offer them up, as it is taught, they should all be left to die, now that he didn’t make any inquiry, we state that each one should be performed according to Halakha and they are kosher/fit.

חטאת לזו ועולה לזו כו׳ הא נמי קאי אדתני לעיל בפרק קמא, עולה שנתערבה בחטאת או איפכא, כולן ימותו. והני מילי בנמלך, אבל בלא נמלך על תערובתו ועשה קן למטה וקן למעלה, מחצה כשר ומחצה פסול. ואע״ג דאי אתי לאמלוכי אמרינן ליה לא תקריב, כדתניא ימותו כולן, השתא דלא נמלך אמרינן (שכל) אחד נעשה כהלכתו וכשר:
