הַתְּכֵלֶת אֵינָהּ מְעַכֶּבֶת אֶת הַלָּבָן, וְהַלָּבָן אֵינוֹ מְעַכֵּב אֶת הַתְּכֵלֶת. תְּפִלָּה שֶׁל יָד אֵינָהּ מְעַכֶּבֶת שֶׁל רֹאשׁ, וְשֶׁל ראשׁ אֵינָהּ מְעַכֶּבֶת שֶׁל יָד. הַסֹּלֶת וְהַשֶּׁמֶן אֵינָם מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַיַּיִן, וְלֹא הַיַּיִן מְעַכְּבָן. הַמַּתָּנוֹת שֶׁעַל מִזְבֵּחַ הַחִיצוֹן אֵינָן מְעַכְּבוֹת זוֹ אֶת זוֹ:

The [absence of the] blue [in the fringes] does not invalidate the white, neither does the [absence of the] white invalidate the blue. The [absence of the] hand-tefillin does not invalidate the head-tefillin, neither does the [absence of the] head-tefillin invalidate the hand-tefillin. The [absence of the] fine flour and the oil does not invalidate the wine, neither does the [absence of the] wine invalidate them. The [absence of one of the] sprinklings [of the blood] on the outer altar does not invalidate the rest.

הַפָּרִים וְהָאֵילִים וְהַכְּבָשִׂים אֵינָן מְעַכְּבִין זֶה אֶת זֶה. רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן אוֹמֵר, אִם הָיוּ לָהֶם פָּרִים מְרֻבִּים וְלֹא הָיוּ לָהֶם נְסָכִים, יָבִיאוּ פַר אֶחָד וּנְסָכָיו, וְלֹא יִקְרְבוּ כֻלָּן בְּלֹא נְסָכִין:

The [absence of the] bulls or the rams or the sheep do not invalidate one another. R. Simon says: if they had [enough funds to buy] many bulls but they did not have [enough to buy the] libations [which accompany them], let them bring one bull with its libation; let them not offer them all without libations.

הַפָּר וְהָאֵילִים וְהַכְּבָשִׂים וְהַשָּׂעִיר אֵינָן מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַלֶּחֶם, וְלֹא הַלֶּחֶם מְעַכְּבָן. הַלֶּחֶם מְעַכֵּב אֶת הַכְּבָשִׂים, וְהַכְּבָשִׂים אֵינָן מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַלֶּחֶם, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי עֲקִיבָא. אָמַר שִׁמְעוֹן בֶּן נַנָּס, לֹא כִי, אֶלָּא הַכְּבָשִׂים מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַלֶּחֶם, וְהַלֶּחֶם אֵינוֹ מְעַכֵּב אֶת הַכְּבָשִׂים, שֶׁכֵּן מָצִינוּ, כְּשֶׁהָיוּ יִשְׂרָאֵל בַּמִּדְבָּר אַרְבָּעִים שָׁנָה, קָרְבוּ כְבָשִׂים בְּלֹא לֶחֶם, אַף כָּאן יִקְרְבוּ כְבָשִׂים בְּלֹא לָחֶם. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, הֲלָכָה כְּדִבְרֵי בֶן נַנָּס, אֲבָל אֵין הַטַּעַם כִּדְבָרָיו, שֶׁכָּל הָאָמוּר בְּחֻמַּשׁ הַפְּקוּדִים, קָרַב בַּמִּדְבָּר. וְכָל הָאָמוּר בְּתוֹרַת כֹּהֲנִים, לֹא קָרַב בַּמִּדְבָּר. מִשֶּׁבָּאוּ לָאָרֶץ, קָרְבוּ אֵלּוּ וָאֵלּוּ. וּמִפְּנֵי מָה אֲנִי אוֹמֵר יִקְרְבוּ כְבָשִׂים בְּלֹא לֶחֶם, שֶׁהַכְּבָשִׂים מַתִּירִין אֶת עַצְמָן בְּלֹא לֶחֶם. לֶחֶם בְּלֹא כְבָשִׂים, אֵין לִי מִי יַתִּירֶנּוּ:

[The absence of] the bull or the rams or the lambs or the sheep do not invalidate the bread-offering, nor does [the absence of] the bread-offering invalidate [them]. [The absence of ] the bread-offering can invalidate the lambs, but [the absence of ] the lambs cannot invalidate the bread-offering - [these are] the words of Rabbi Akiva; Rabbi Shimon ben Nanos said: Not so, rather [the absence of} the lambs can invalidate the bread-offering, but the [absence of] the bread-offering cannot invalidate the lambs; because we find that when Israel was in the wilderness forty years, they offered lambs without the bread-offering, so now too they may offer the lambs without the bread-offering. R. Simon said: The law is [according to] the words of Ben Nanos, but the grounds are not [according to] his words, [because] all the [offerings] stated in Numbers were offered in wilderness, but all the [offerings] stated in Leviticus were not offered in the wilderness. When they came to the land, they offered both [sets of offerings]. And why do I say [nevertheless] they offer the lambs without the bread-offering? Because the lambs render themselves permissible without the bread-offering [via the burning of their innards on the altar], but the bread-offering without the lambs - there is nothing [offered] that would permit it.

4 ד

הַתְּמִידִין אֵינָן מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַמּוּסָפִים, וְלֹא הַמּוּסָפִים מְעַכְּבִין אֶת הַתְּמִידִים, וְלֹא הַמּוּסָפִים מְעַכְּבִין זֶה אֶת זֶה. לֹא הִקְרִיבוּ כֶבֶשׂ בַּבֹּקֶר, יַקְרִיבוּ בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, אֵימָתַי, בִּזְמַן שֶׁהָיוּ אֲנוּסִין אוֹ שׁוֹגְגִין. אֲבָל אִם הָיוּ מְזִידִין וְלֹא הִקְרִיבוּ כֶבֶשׂ בַּבֹּקֶר, לֹא יַקְרִיבוּ בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם. לֹא הִקְטִירוּ קְטֹרֶת בַּבֹּקֶר, יַקְטִירוּ בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, וְכֻלָּהּ הָיְתָה קְרֵבָה בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם, שֶׁאֵין מְחַנְּכִין אֶת מִזְבַּח הַזָּהָב אֶלָּא בִקְטֹרֶת הַסַּמִּים, וְלֹא מִזְבַּח הָעוֹלָה אֶלָּא בְתָמִיד שֶׁל שַׁחַר, וְלֹא אֶת הַשֻּׁלְחָן אֶלָּא בְלֶחֶם הַפָּנִים בְּשַׁבָּת, וְלֹא אֶת הַמְּנוֹרָה אֶלָּא בְשִׁבְעָה נֵרוֹתֶיהָ בֵּין הָעַרְבָּיִם:

[The absence of ] thetemidim [daily offerings of lambs, one after dawn and before sunset] near does not invalidate the musafim [additional offerings offered on Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh, and holidays], neither does [the absence of] the musafim invalidate the temidim, neither does the absence of [one of the] musafim invalidate the other musafim. Even if they did not offer the lamb in the morning, they must offer it towards evening. Rabbi Shimon said: When is this so? Only when they had acted under duress or in error, but if they acted deliberately and did not offer the lamb in the morning they may not offer it towards evening. If they did not burn the incense in the morning, they burn it towards evening. Rabbi Shimon said: all of it was burned towards evening [in such a case] - for the golden altar is dedicated only by the incense of spices, and the altar for the whole burnt offering [is dedicated only] by the daily offering of the morning, and the table [is dedicated only] by the showbread on Shabbat, and the menorah [is dedicated] only by [the kindling of] seven lamps towards evening.

חֲבִתֵּי כֹהֵן גָּדוֹל, לֹא הָיוּ בָאוֹת חֲצָיִים, אֶלָּא מֵבִיא עִשָּׂרוֹן שָׁלֵם, וְחוֹצֵהוּ, וּמַקְרִיב מֶחֱצָה בַבֹּקֶר, וּמֶחֱצָה בֵין הָעַרְבָּיִם. וְכֹהֵן שֶׁהִקְרִיב מֶחֱצָה בְּשַׁחֲרִית וּמֵת וּמִנּוּ כֹהֵן אַחֵר תַּחְתָּיו, לֹא יָבִיא חֲצִי עִשָּׂרוֹן מִבֵּיתוֹ, וְלֹא חֲצִי עֶשְׂרוֹנוֹ שֶׁל רִאשׁוֹן, אֶלָּא מֵבִיא עִשָּׂרוֹן שָׁלֵם, וְחוֹצֵהוּ, וּמַקְרִיב מֶחֱצָה, וּמֶחֱצָה אָבֵד. נִמְצְאוּ שְׁנֵי חֲצָיִים קְרֵבִין, וּשְׁנֵי חֲצָיִים אוֹבְדִין. לֹא מִנּוּ כֹהֵן אַחֵר, מִשֶּׁל מִי הָיְתָה קְרֵבָה. רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן אוֹמֵר, מִשֶּׁל צִבּוּר. רַבִּי יְהוּדָה אוֹמֵר, מִשֶּׁל יוֹרְשִׁים. וּשְׁלֵמָה הָיְתָה קְרֵבָה:

The high priest’s griddle-cakes cannot be brought in [two separate] halves. Rather, he must bring a whole tenth and then divide it, offering a half in the morning and a half towards evening. If a [high] priest offered half in the morning and then died and they appointed another priest in his place, [the successor] may not bring a half-tenth from his house, neither [may he use] the remaining half-tenth of the first [high priest]. Rather, he must bring a whole tenth and divide it, and offer one half and leaving the other half goes to waste. It turns out that two halves are offered and two halves go to waste. If they did not appoint another priest in his place, from whose [expense] was it offered? Rabbi Shimon says: from the community; Rabbi Yehudah says: from his heirs, and [both agreee that] a whole [tenth] was offered.
