Rav Papa brings a proof from an inference from a mishna that if blood got on one’s clothing from the remaining 3 sprinklings (before all 3 were sprinkled), one would need to wash one’s clothing (law of kibus, laundering). The proof is questioned but ultimately resolved. A braita is brought explaining the source for the halacha in the mishna that all the sprinklings for the sin offerings that are done in the inner sanctuary are necessary.

What is the source for Beit Hillel regarding his argument with Beit Shamai about a sin offering – if blood was only sprinkled on one corner of the altar, was atonement effected? Two different sources are brought. Rabbi Yochanan and Rav Papa list the status of the other 3 sprinklings (after atonement is effected) regarding various halachot – in some ways they are like the first and in other ways not.

There is a debate regarding why during the sacrificing of the Pashal sacrifices, the drain was plugged to that the blood would stay in the azara. What parts of the animal are susceptible to pigul? Rabbi Elezar says that certain cases where a thought regarding a part of the animal (like a fetus) will not cause the part or the animal’s meat to become pigul but a thought regarding the animal that would render the animals’meat pigul would also render the fetus pigul. Several sources are brought to prove his opinion and also an attempt to contradict his opinion.

Who is allowed to slaughter the animal for a sacrifice? The mishna words it in a way that sounds like it is only post facto allowed – however this contradicts another source which indicates it is permitted ab initio. The mishna also indicated that if an impure person slaughtered. it is allowed, however another source contradicts and seems to indicate it is not allowed. Ula explains that an impure person who even puts a bit of one’s body into the azara of the mikdash it is forbidden. A question is brought from a tannatic source against him and a potential proof is brought. Both are rejected.

Different cases are discussed where there is some combination of time and place pigul and the question is does one get karet for them or not even according to Rabbi Yehuda’s approach? Different inferences are made from one line in the mishna in order to answer various questions.

If one did have multiple “bad” intents during the sacrificial rites, it is not considered pigul that one would receive karet. Rabbi Yehuda disagrees in a particular case. Rabbi Yochanan and Ilfa disagree as to which case exactly does Rabbi Yehuda disagree. A debate in tmura regarding a similar situation is brought as a comparison.
