מעילה פרק ו׳ משנה ו׳


If a consecrated peruta fell into one’s purse, in which there were non-sacred perutot, or in a case where one said: One peruta in this purse is consecrated, once he spent the first peruta from the purse for non-sacred purposes, he is liable for its misuse. This is the statement of Rabbi Akiva. And the Rabbis say: He is not liable for misuse until he spends all the perutot in the entire purse, as only then is it certain that he spent the consecrated peruta. And Rabbi Akiva concedes to the Rabbis in a case where one says: One peruta from the coins in this purse is consecrated, that he may continue spending the perutot in the purse for non-sacred purposes and becomes liable for misuse only once he spends all the perutot in the entire purse. His formulation indicates that his desire was that the final remaining peruta in the purse would be consecrated, and therefore one is liable for misuse only when he spends that peruta.

פְּרוּטָה שֶׁל הֶקְדֵּשׁ שֶׁנָּפְלָה לְתוֹךְ הַכִּיס, אוֹ שֶׁאָמַר, פְּרוּטָה בְכִיס זֶה הֶקְדֵּשׁ, כֵּיוָן שֶׁהוֹצִיא אֶת הָרִאשׁוֹנָה, מָעַל, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי עֲקִיבָא. וַחֲכָמִים אוֹמְרִים, עַד שֶׁיּוֹצִיא אֶת כָּל הַכִּיס. מוֹדֶה רַבִּי עֲקִיבָא בְּאוֹמֵר פְּרוּטָה מִן הַכִּיס זֶה הֶקְדֵּשׁ, שֶׁהוּא מוֹצִיא וְהוֹלֵךְ עַד שֶׁיּוֹצִיא אֶת כָּל הַכִּיס:


כיון שהוציא את הראשונה – for the needs of his use, he has committed religious sacrilege.

וחכמים אומרים – he did not commit religious sacrilege

until he spent all the money that was in the purse for the needs of unconsecrated products. And the Halakah is according to the Sages.

פרוטה מן הכיס זה – that is to say, do not use up the penny from this purse until there will be in it something consecrated.

כיון שהוציא את הראשונה. לצורך תשמישו מעל:

וחכמים אומרים. לא מעל:

עד שיוציא. כל המעות שבכיס לצורך חולין. והלכה כחכמים:

פרוטה מן הכיס זה. כלומר לא תכלה פרוטה מכיס זה עד שיהא בה הקדש:
