Zevachim 9:6: And all of the [aforementioned] which were discharged from [atop] the altar [due to the fires] are not returned [to it]. Similarly, a coal that was discharged from [atop] the altar [is not returned]. Limbs that were discharged from the altar are returned [if they fell off] before midnight, and one [is subject to] Me'ilah [misuse of consecrated property, for using] them. [If they fell off] after midnight they are not returned and one is not subject to Me'ilah [for using them].

וכלם שפקעו מעל גבי המזבח, לא יחזיר. וכן גחלת שפקעה מעל גבי המזבח. אברים שפקעו מעל גבי המזבח, קדם לחצות, יחזיר, ומועלין בהן, לאחר חצות, לא יחזיר, ואין מועלין בהן.

Zevachim 9:7: Just as the altar sanctifies that which is fitting for it, so too the ramp [leading up the altar] sanctifies. Just as the altar and the ramp sanctify those items that are fitting for them, so too do the utensils sanctify. A vessel for liquid sanctifies liquids, and a vessel for dry measure sanctifies solids. A vessel for liquid cannot sanctify solids, and a vessel for dry measure cannot sanctify liquids. [If] consecrated vessels become perforated, they [still] sanctify if they [can] serve the function they did when they were whole; if [they] cannot [serve that function], they do not sanctify. And all [utensils] only sanctify within the Temple [precincts].

כשם שהמזבח מקדש את הראוי לו כך הכבש מקדש. כשם שהמזבח והכבש מקדשין את הראוי להן, כך הכלים מקדשים. כלי הלח מקדשין את הלח, ומדות היבש מקדשות את היבש. אין כלי הלח מקדשין את היבש, ולא מדות היבש מקדשות את הלח. כלי הקדש שנקבו, אם עושים הם מעין מלאכתן שהיו עושין והם שלמים, מקדשין. ואם לאו, אין מקדשים. וכלן אין מקדשים אלא בקדש.
