Mishnayos Meilah Perek 2 Mishnah 8

מעילה פרק ב׳ משנה ח׳


One is liable for misuse of the meal offerings from the moment that they were consecrated. Once they were consecrated through placement of the flour in a service vessel, they were rendered susceptible to disqualification for sacrifice through contact with one who immersed that day, and through contact with one who has not yet brought an atonement offering, and through its blood being left overnight. Once the handful taken from the meal offering was sacrificed, one is liable to receive karet for eating the meal offering due to violation of the prohibition of piggul, and the prohibition of notar, and the prohibition of partaking of consecrated food while ritually impure. And one is not liable for misuse of the remainder of the meal offering, which is eaten by the priests, but one is liable for misuse of the handful that is sacrificed, until it leaves to the place of the ashes.

הַמְּנָחוֹת, מוֹעֲלִין בָּהֶן מִשֶּׁהֻקְדְּשׁוּ. קָדְשׁוּ בַכְּלִי, הֻכְשְׁרוּ לִפָּסֵל בִּטְבוּל יוֹם וּבִמְחֻסַּר כִּפּוּרִים וּבְלִינָה. קָרַב הַקֹּמֶץ, חַיָּבִין עָלָיו מִשּׁוּם פִּגּוּל, נוֹתָר וְטָמֵא. וְאֵין מוֹעֲלִין בַּשְּׁיָרִים, אֲבָל מוֹעֲלִים בַּקֹּמֶץ עַד שֶׁיֵּצֵא לְבֵית הַדָּשֶׁן:


המנחות מועלין בהן משהוקדשו – through the sanctification of the mouth [enunciating it].

ואין מועלין בשיריים – because there is a period of availability to the Kohanim.

אבל מועלין בקומץ (with the handful of the meal offering the priest takes to be put on the altar) = until it is burned completely and it leaves to the ash heap according to the law of the parts of the sin-offering and guilt-offering burned on the altar. And after that, there is no sacrilege with it, for its commandment had been performed.

המנחות מועלין בהן משהוקדשו. בקדושת פה:

ואין מועלין בשיריים. שיש בהן היתר לכהנים:

אבל מועלין בקומץ. עד שישרף כולו ויצא לבית הדשן כדין אימורי חטאת ואשם. ולאחר כן אין מועלין בו, דהא נעשית מצותו:
