תכבס במקום קדוש החמיר הכתוב בדם הנבלע בבגד לעשותו כאשר היה קודם הזיה שלא יצא חוץ לקלעים ואמר וכלי חרש אשר תבושל בו ישבר ואף הוא במקום קדוש הוא נשבר והחרסים נבלעין במקומם ואין עושין בו מריקה ושטיפה כלל וכן המריקה והשטיפה בכלי נחשת במקום קדוש הוא כי כל הכתובים נמשכים אל מקום קדוש שהזכיר: THOU SHALT WASH IT IN A HOLY PLACE. Scripture laid down a strict law in connection with the blood [of a sin-offering] which became absorbed by a garment, giving it the law it [the blood] had before it was sprinkled [on the garment, namely] that it may not be taken outside the curtains61The Court of the Tabernacle was enclosed by curtains (see Exodus 27:9-16). In the Sanctuary at Jerusalem it was surrounded by a wall. The sense of the expression is thus identical in both cases, namely, the Temple Court. [and therefore it must be washed within the Court]. He states, and the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken.60Verse 21. This too is to be broken in the holy place [i.e., within the Court], and the pieces of pottery are swallowed up in the place [where they are broken],62Yoma 21 a. This was one of the regular miracles which occurred in the Sanctuary. and there does not have to be any scouring and rinsing at all [as required if it was boiled in a copper pot]. Similarly, the scouring and rinsing required if [the meat of the sin-offering] was boiled in a copper pot60Verse 21. have to be done in a holy place, for all the verses [i.e., Verses 20-21] are connected with “the holy place” mentioned [above in Verse 19: in ‘a holy place’ shall it be eaten, in the Court of the Tent of Meeting].
