Chapter 9, Mishna 4
Somebody goes into cave to immerse for one of two reasons: became impure for dead/now immersing to purify, or just to cool off. Then he finds out a corpse was floating in pool. Either way, he maintains the status he had when he entered. This uncertainty creates same result as tumah of the deep. What if the source of impurity in the pool was not a corpse but a sheretz – a dead creeeping animal? WHat about a non-nazir who became impure for the dead, underwent seven day purification, and now awaiting nightfall so he can bring the Pesach offering, and he encounters tumah of the deep – is he pure?
