Mishnah Parah 11:5: Anyone who is required by the words of the Scribes [i.e. on a rabbinic level] to enter into water [for ritual immersion], he renders sanctified property impure, and invalidates trumah, and he is permitted to [touch] unsanctified property and the tithe, according to Rabbi Meir. And the Sages forbid regarding the tithe. After his entering [the water, even before sunset that day], he is permitted to [touch] any of these. And if he came to the temple, whether before his entering [the water], or after his entering, he is exempt.

כֹּל הַטָּעוּן בִּיאַת מַיִם מִדִּבְרֵי סוֹפְרִים, מְטַמֵּא אֶת הַקֹּדֶשׁ, וּפוֹסֵל אֶת הַתְּרוּמָה, וּמֻתָּר בַּחֻלִּין וּבַמַּעֲשֵׂר, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי מֵאִיר. וַחֲכָמִים אוֹסְרִים בַּמַּעֲשֵׂר. לְאַחַר בִּיאָתוֹ, מֻתָּר בְּכֻלָּן. וְאִם בָּא אֶל הַמִּקְדָּשׁ, בֵּין לִפְנֵי בִיאָתוֹ וּבֵין לְאַחַר בִּיאָתוֹ, פָּטוּר:

Mishnah Parah 11:6: Anyone who is required to enter into water [for ritual immersion], whether by the words of the Torah or by the words of the Scribes, he renders impure chatat waters [which have been sanctified with red heifer ashes], and the chatat ashes, and the one who sprinkles the chatat waters, through [his] touch, and by [his] carrying [them]. The [pure] hyssop which has been primed [for impurity, such as if it became wet], and waters that are have not been sanctified [by being mixed with chatat ashes], and an empty vessel that is pure for chatat, [also are rendered impure by one who requires immersion] through [his] touch and by [his] carrying [them], according to Rabbi Meir. And the Sages say: by touch but not by carrying.

כֹּל הַטָּעוּן בִּיאַת מַיִם, בֵּין מִדִּבְרֵי תוֹרָה בֵּין מִדִּבְרֵי סוֹפְרִים, מְטַמֵּא אֶת מֵי חַטָּאת וְאֶת אֵפֶר חַטָּאת וְאֶת הַמַּזֶּה מֵי חַטָּאת, בְּמַגָּע וּבְמַשָּׂא. הָאֵזוֹב הַמֻּכְשָׁר, וְהַמַּיִם שֶׁאֵינָן מְקֻדָּשִׁים, וּכְלִי רֵיקָם הַטָּהוֹר לְחַטָּאת, בְּמַגָּע וּבְמַשָּׂא, דִּבְרֵי רַבִּי מֵאִיר. וַחֲכָמִים אוֹמְרִים, בְּמַגָּע אֲבָל לֹא בְמַשָּׂא:
