Audio by Dr. Michael Sokolow

Zevachim 4:1: Beit Shammai say: [Regarding] all offerings [whose blood] is sprinkled on the outer altar, if it has only been applied once it atones, and [in the case of] a Chattat [an offering brought to expiate sin], two applications [atone]. Beit Hillel say: Even a Chattat that had just one application atones. Therefore, if one sprinkled the first [application] properly, but the second one after its time - it atones. If the first [application] was sprinkled after its time, and the second [application was done] outside its place, it is Piggul [a sacrifice that becomes unfit due to the intention of the officiating priest, while offering it, to consume it outside its permitted time] and it subjects him to Karet [excision at the hands of Heaven].

בית שמאי אומרים: כל הנתנין על מזבח החיצון, שאם נתנן מתנה אחת, כפר - ובחטאת שתי מתנות. ובית הלל אומרים: אף חטאת שנתנה מתנה אחת, כפר - לפיכך אם נתן את הראשונה כתקנה, ואת השניה חוץ לזמנה - כפר; נתן את הראשונה חוץ לזמנה, ואת השניה חוץ למקומה - פגול וחיבין עליו כרת.

Zevachim 4:2: [Regarding] all offerings [whose blood should be] sprinkled on the inner altar - it does not atone if one of the applications is lacking. Therefore, if one sprinkled all [the applications] as required save one [which was sprinkled] improperly - it [the sacrifice] is invalid but he is not subject to Karet.

כל הנתנין על מזבח הפנימי, שאם חסר אחת מן המתנות, לא כפר - לפיכך אם נתן כלן כתקנן, ואחת שלא כתקנה - פסול ואין בו כרת.
