Mishnayos Pesachim Perek 7 Mishnah 9

פסחים פרק ז׳ משנה ט׳


A Paschal lamb that was taken out of its permissible area or that became ritually impure should be burned immediately on the eve of Passover. If the owners became ritually impure or died, its form must be allowed to decay by leaving it for a period of time instead of burning it immediately, and it should be burned on the sixteenth of Nisan, immediately after the first day of the Festival. Rabbi Yoḥanan ben Beroka says: This, too, should be burned immediately, because it has no one to eat it, which is also so severe a disqualification that decay of form is not required.

הַפֶּסַח שֶׁיָּצָא אוֹ שֶׁנִּטְמָא, יִשָּׂרֵף מִיָּד. נִטְמְאוּ הַבְּעָלִים אוֹ שֶׁמֵּתוּ, תְּעֻבַּר צוּרָתוֹ וְיִשָּׂרֵף בְּשִׁשָּׁה עָשָׂר. רַבִּי יוֹחָנָן בֶּן בְּרוֹקָא אוֹמֵר, אַף זֶה יִשָּׂרֵף מִיָּד, לְפִי שֶׁאֵין לוֹ אוֹכְלִין:


הפסח שיצא – outside of the walls [of Jerusalem].

ישרף מיד – [it should be burned immediately] on the fourteenth [of Nisan] and he does not have to delay until the morning of the fifteenth in order that it is appearance is allowed to spoil (i.e., wait until the flesh looks disfigured by beginning decay), that is, that it should come to be portions of the sacrifices left over beyond the legal time and bound to be burned. But however, on the Holiday/Yom Tov, he is not able to burn it as we don’t burn Holy Things on Yom Tov.

נטמאו בעלים או שמתו – there is no invalidation of his body other than on account of something else.

תעובר צורתו – He should wait until it comes to be portions left over beyond the legal time, and afterwards he should burn it.

אף זה ישרף מיד – Rabbi Yohanan ben Beroka does not disagree with the First Tanna/teacher [of the Mishnah] other than when the owners became defiled or they had died prior to the tossing of the blood, and it is not considered meat to be eaten and it is for him like an invalidation of his body. But the Halakha is not according to Rabbi Yohanan ben Beroka.

הפסח שיצא. חוץ לחומה:

ישרף מיד. בארבעה עשר ולא צריך לאשהויי עד הבוקר של ט״ו כדי שתעובר צורתו דהיינו שיבא לידי נותר. ומיהו ביום טוב לא מצי שריף ליה דאין שורפין קדשים ביו״ט:

נטמאו בעלים או שמתו. אין פסולו בגופו אלא מחמת דבר אחר:

תעובר צורתו. ימתין עד שיבא לידי נותר, ואח״כ ישרפנו:

אף זה ישרף מיד. ר״י בן ברוקא לא פליג את״ק אלא כשנטמאו הבעלים או מתו קודם זריקת הדם דלא איחזי בשר באכילה והוה ליה כפסולו בגופו. ואין הלכה כר״י בן ברוקא:
