Mishnayos Nazir Perek 2 Mishnah 5

נזיר פרק ב׳ משנה ה׳


If one says: I am hereby a nazirite and it is incumbent upon me to shave a nazirite, meaning he will also pay for the offerings that a nazirite brings when he cuts his hair; and another heard and said: And I too am a nazirite and it is incumbent upon me to shave a nazirite, the other is also a nazirite and is obligated to pay for the offerings of a nazirite. If they were perspicacious and wish to limit their expenses, they shave each other. They may each pay for the other’s offerings, so that their additional vows will not cost them anything. And if not, if this arrangement did not occur to them and each brought his own offerings, they shave other nazirites, i.e., they must pay for the offerings of other nazirites.

הריני נזיר ועלי לגלח נזיר – he accepted upon himself Naziriteship and furthermore, accepted upon himself to bring [hair] sacrifices for another Nazirite, and his friend also came and he stated the same thing.

אם היו פקחים – each one exempts his fellow with his [hair] sacrifices and even though that at the time that he took the first vow to shave a Nazirite, the second [person] was not yet a Nazirite.

הריני נזיר ועלי לגלח נזיר. קיבל עליו נזירות, ועוד קיבל עליו להביא קרבנות על נזיר אחר, ובא חבירו גם הוא ואמר כן:

אם היו פקחים. כל אחד פוטר את חבירו בקרבנותיו, ואע״פ שבשעה שנדר הראשון לגלח נזיר אכתי לא הוי השני נזיר:
