מִגְדָּל שֶׁהוּא עוֹמֵד בָּאֲוִיר, טֻמְאָה בְתוֹכוֹ, כֵּלִים שֶׁבְּעָבְיוֹ טְהוֹרִים. טֻמְאָה בְעָבְיוֹ, כֵּלִים שֶׁבְּתוֹכוֹ טְהוֹרִים. רַבִּי יוֹסֵי אוֹמֵר, מֶחֱצָה לְמֶחֱצָה. הָיָה עוֹמֵד בְּתוֹךְ הַבַּיִת, טֻמְאָה בְתוֹכוֹ, הַבַּיִת טָמֵא. טֻמְאָה בַבַּיִת, מַה שֶּׁבְּתוֹכוֹ טָהוֹר, שֶׁדֶּרֶךְ הַטֻּמְאָה לָצֵאת וְאֵין דַּרְכָּהּ לְהִכָּנֵס. כֵּלִים שֶׁבֵּינוֹ לְבֵין הָאָרֶץ, שֶׁבֵּינוֹ לְבֵין הַכֹּתֶל, שֶׁבֵּינוֹ לְבֵין הַקּוֹרוֹת, אִם יֶשׁ שָׁם פּוֹתֵחַ טֶפַח, טְמֵאִין. וְאִם לָאו, טְהוֹרִין. טֻמְאָה שָׁם, הַבַּיִת טָמֵא:

A cupboard standing in the open air: If there is uncleanness within it, vessels in the [niches in the] thickness [of its walls] remain clean. If there is uncleanness in [the niches in] its thickness, vessels inside [the cupboard] remain clean. Rabbi Yose says: half and half. When it is standing inside a house: If there is uncleanness inside [the cupboard], the house is unclean; If there is uncleanness in the house that which is within [the cupboard] remains clean, for the manner of uncleanness is to go out and not to go in. Vessels which are between [the cupboard] and the ground, or between it and the wall, or between it and the roof-beams: If there is a space of one cubic handbreadth there, they become unclean. If not they remain clean. If there is uncleanness there, the house becomes unclean.

תֵּבַת הַמִּגְדָּל, יֶשׁ בָּהּ פּוֹתֵחַ טֶפַח וְאֵין בִּיצִיאָתָהּ פּוֹתֵחַ טֶפַח, טֻמְאָה בְתוֹכָהּ, הַבַּיִת טָמֵא. טֻמְאָה בַבַּיִת, מַה שֶּׁבְּתוֹכָהּ טָהוֹר, שֶׁדֶּרֶךְ הַטֻּמְאָה לָצֵאת וְאֵין דַּרְכָּהּ לְהִכָּנֵס. רַבִּי יוֹסֵי מְטַהֵר, מִפְּנֵי שֶׁהוּא יָכוֹל לְהוֹצִיאָהּ לַחֲצָאִים אוֹ לְשָׂרְפָהּ בִּמְקוֹמָהּ:

[With regard to] a drawer of the cupboard, which is one cubic handbreadth, but whose outlet is not a square handbreadth, if there is uncleanness inside it, the house becomes unclean; But if there is uncleanness in the house, that which is within [the drawer] remains clean, for the manner of uncleanness is to go out and not to go in. Rabbi Yose declares [the house] clean, since he can remove [the uncleanness] by halves or burn it where it stands.

הָיָה עוֹמֵד בְּתוֹךְ הַפֶּתַח וְנִפְתַּח לַחוּץ, טֻמְאָה בְתוֹכוֹ, הַבַּיִת טָהוֹר. טֻמְאָה בַבַּיִת, מַה שֶּׁבְּתוֹכוֹ טָמֵא, שֶׁדֶּרֶךְ הַטֻּמְאָה לָצֵאת וְאֵין דַּרְכָּהּ לְהִכָּנֵס. הָיְתָה מוּכְנִי שֶׁלּוֹ מְשׁוּכָה לַאֲחוֹרָיו שָׁלשׁ אֶצְבָּעוֹת, טֻמְאָה שָׁם כְּנֶגֶד הַקּוֹרוֹת, הַבַּיִת טָהוֹר. בַּמֶּה דְבָרִים אֲמוּרִים, בִּזְמַן שֶׁיֶּשׁ שָׁם פּוֹתֵחַ טֶפַח, וְאֵינָהּ יוֹצְאָה, וְהַמִּגְדָּל בָּא בְמִדָּה:

[In the case where] the cupboard is standing in the doorway and is opened outward, if there is uncleanness inside it, the house remains clean. If there is uncleanness in the house, that which is within [the cupboard] becomes unclean, for the manner of uncleanness is to go out and not to go in. If its wheeled base protruded three fingerbreadths behind it and there was uncleanness inside it under the roof-beams, the house remains clean. When does this ruling apply? When there is a space of one cubic handbreadth, when it is not easily detachable, and when the cupboard is of the stipulated size.
