Zevachim 13:3: A stringency [applies] with slaughtering [outside the Temple courtyard compared to] offering up [outside the Temple courtyard], and a stringency [applies] to offering up [outside the Temple courtyard compared to] slaughtering [outside the Temple courtyard]. A stringency [with regard to] slaughtering is that [if] one slaughters for [the sake of] a person [rather than for God] he is liable, but [if] he offers up a sacrifice to a person he is exempt. A stringency [with regard to] offering up is that [if] two people held the knife and slaughtered [the animal] they are exempt, but if they [both] held a limb and offered it up they are liable. If they offered up [an offering] and went back and offered up [an offering] they are liable for every offering, [these are] the words of Rabbi Shimon; Rabbi Yose says: They are only liable once, and they are only liable once they offer it up to the top of an altar. Rabbi Shimon says: He is liable even if he offers it up on a rock or a stone.

חמר בשחיטה מבעליה, ובעליה מבשחיטה. חמר בשחיטה, שהשוחט להדיוט חיב, והמעלה להדיוט פטור. חמר בעליה, שנים שאחזו בסכין ושחטו פטורים, אחזו באבר והעלוהו חיבין. העלה וחזר והעלה וחזר והעלה, חיב על כל עליה ועליה, דברי רבי שמעון. רבי יוסי אומר: אינו חיב אלא אחת, ואינו חיב עד שיעלה לראש המזבח. רבי שמעון אומר: אפלו העלה על הסלע או על האבן, חיב.

Zevachim 13:4: One is liable for offering [sacrifices] outside [the Temple courtyard] regardless if they are valid sacrifices or invalid sacrifices which became disqualified inside the holy [area]. One is liable for offering outside [the Temple courtyard] an olive's bulk of an Olah [an offering that is entirely burnt] or its designated portions. One is liable for offering outside [the Temple courtyard] an olive's bulk of the Kometz [a handful of the meal-offering which the priest takes to put on the altar], or the frankincense, or the Ketoret [holy incense offered twice a day on the golden altar inside the Temple], or the priestly meal-offering, or the meal-offering of the anointed [high] priest, or the meal-offering of the libations; Rabbi Elazar exempts him unless he offers the entirety [of one of these items]. And [with regard to] all of these - if one offered them inside [the Temple courtyard], but left out an olive's bulk, and offered that outside [the Temple], he is liable. And [with regard to] all of these, [if] they were missing the smallest amount, one is exempt for offering them outside [the Temple courtyard].

אחד קדשים כשרין ואחד קדשים פסולין שהיה פסולן בקדש, והקריבן בחוץ, חיב. המעלה כזית מן העולה ומן האמורין בחוץ, חיב. הקמץ, והלבונה, והקטרת, ומנחת כהנים, ומנחת כהן המשיח, ומנחת נסכין, שהקריב מאחד מהן כזית בחוץ, חיב. רבי אלעזר פוטר עד שיקריב את כלו. וכלם שהקריבן בפנים ושיר בהן כזית והקריבן בחוץ, חיב. וכלן שחסרו כל שהן והקריבן בחוץ, פטור.
