Mishnayos Negaim Perek 14 Mishnah 3

נגעים פרק י"ד משנה ג׳


On the seventh day he shaves off his hair a second time in the manner of the first shaving, he washes his garments and immerses himself. He is clean in so far as not to convey uncleanness as a sheretz, but he was still like a tevul yom. He may eat second tithe. After sunset he may eat terumah. After he had brought his offering of atonement, he may also eat sacred things. Thus there are three grades in the purification of a metzora and three grades in the purification of a woman after child birth.

בַּיּוֹם הַשְּׁבִיעִי מְגַלֵּחַ תִּגְלַחַת שְׁנִיָּה כַּתִּגְלַחַת הָרִאשׁוֹנָה, כִּבֶּס בְּגָדָיו וְטָבַל, טָהוֹר מִלְּטַמֵּא כַשֶּׁרֶץ, וַהֲרֵי הוּא טְבוּל יוֹם, אוֹכֵל בַּמַּעֲשֵׂר. הֶעֱרִיב שִׁמְשׁוֹ, אוֹכֵל בַּתְּרוּמָה. הֵבִיא כַפָּרָתוֹ, אוֹכֵל בַּקָּדָשִׁים. נִמְצְאוּ שָׁלשׁ טְהָרוֹת בַּמְּצֹרָע וְשָׁלשׁ טְהָרוֹת בַּיּוֹלֶדֶת:


טהור מלטמא כשרץ – ‘but he invalidates heave-offering [and nothing more].

ושלש טהרות כיולדת – and the same law applies to a person with gonorrhea who had three attacks and concerning a woman who had a flux, that in all of them, he immersed [in a Mikveh] and came up, he eats [Second] Tithe. When his (i.e., the leper’s seventh day) sun has set, he eats heave offering. When he brought his atonement sacrifice, he eats Holy Things. These are three purifications. And that it (i.e., the Mishnah) took that of the woman in childbirth, it is written explicitly (Leviticus 12:8): “The priest shall make expiation on her behalf, and she shall be pure, [if married to a Kohen), for the eating of Holy Things.

טהור מלטמא כשרץ. ופוסל תרומה [ותו לא]:

ושלש טהרות ביולדת. והוא הדין בזב בעל שלש ראיות, ובזבה. דבכולהו טבל ועלה אוכל במעשר, העריב שמשו אוכל בתרומה, הביא כפרתו אוכל בקדשים, הרי שלש טהרות. והאי דנקט יולדת טפי מזב וזבה, משום דביולדת כתיב בהדיא (שם י״כ) וכפר עליה הכהן וטהרה, לאכילת קדשים:
