Some things need to be rendered susceptible [to uncleanness] but they do not need intention, [Other things need] intention and to be rendered susceptible. [Other things] need intention, but do not need to be rendered susceptible, [And other things] need neither to be rendered susceptible nor intention.

ואין צריכין מחשבה. לחשב עליהן לאכילה. וכולה מתניתין מפרש לקמן:
