Mishnayos Yevamos Perek 6 Mishnah 1

יבמות פרק ו׳ משנה א׳


One who had intercourse with his yevama, whether unwittingly, i.e., he thought he was having intercourse with someone else, or intentionally, i.e., he knew she was his yevama and nevertheless had intercourse with her without intent to perform levirate marriage; whether due to coercion or willingly; even if he was unwitting and her participation was intentional, his participation was intentional and she was unwitting, he was coerced and she was not coerced, or she was coerced and he was not coerced; both one who merely engages in the initial stage of intercourse and one who completes the act of intercourse has thereby acquired his yevama. And similarly, the Torah did not distinguish between an act of intercourse in an atypical manner, i.e., anal intercourse, and intercourse in a typical manner.

הַבָּא עַל יְבִמְתּוֹ, בֵּין בְּשׁוֹגֵג, בֵּין בְּמֵזִיד, בֵּין בְּאֹנֶס, בֵּין בְּרָצוֹן, אֲפִלּוּ הוּא שׁוֹגֵג וְהִיא מְזִידָה, הוּא מֵזִיד וְהִיא שׁוֹגֶגֶת, הוּא אָנוּס וְהִיא לֹא אֲנוּסָה, הִיא אֲנוּסָה וְהוּא לֹא אָנוּס, אֶחָד הַמְעָרֶה וְאֶחָד הַגּוֹמֵר, קָנָה, וְלֹא חָלַק בֵּין בִּיאָה לְבִיאָה:


הבא על יבמתו. שוגג – as he was thinking that she was another woman.

מזיד – for the sake of unchastity and not for the Mitzvah of levirate marriage.

אפילו הוא שוגג והיא מזידה – needless to say where she intended [to fulfill] the Mitzvah but rather even where both of them don’t have the intention [of fulfilling] the Mitzvah such as the case where he intends for another woman, and she had the intention for the sake of unchastity, he has acquired her [as his wife], as it states in Scripture (Deuteronomy 25:5): “ Her husband’s brother shall unite with her: [he shall take her as his wife and perform the levir’s duty],” anyway.

המערה – that he did not complete his coition, but rather, he inserted the corona of his membrum virile alone, and the meeting of the corona without insertion is called “kissing.”

קנה – and he took possession of the inheritance and she is removed with a Jewish bill of divorce if he comes to remove her.

לא חלק בין ביאה לביאה – whether a coition in its proper manner or a coition not in its proper manner, as it is written (Leviticus 20:13): “[If a man lies with a male] as one lies with a woman,” the Biblical verse tells us that there are two ways of sexual gratification.

הבא על יבמתו. שוגג. כסבור אשה אחרת היא:

מזיד. לשם זנות ולא למצות יבום:

אפילו הוא שוגג והיא מזידה. לא מבעיא היכא דהיא מכוונה למצוה, אלא אפילו היכא דתרווייהו לא מכווני למצוה, כגון שהוא מכוין לאשה אחרת והיא נתכוונה לשם זנות, קנה, דאמר קרא (דברים כ״ה:ה׳) יבמה יבא עליה, מכל מקום:

המערה. שלא גמר ביאתו אלא הכניס עטרה בלבד. ופגיעת עטרה בלא הכנסה קרויה נשיקה:

קנה. וזכה בנחלה, ויוצאת בגט אם בא להוציאה:

לא חלק בין ביאה לביאה. בין ביאה כדרכה לביאה שלא כדרכה, דכתיב (ויקרא כ׳:י״ג) משכבי אשה, מגיד הכתוב ששתי משכבות יש באשה:
