And the 95th prohibition is that we are forbidden from sacrific­ing an animal with a temporary blemish.

The source of this prohibition is G‑d's statement in Deuteron­omy,1 "Do not sacrifice to G‑d your L‑rd any ox, sheep that has a blemish." The Sifri2 explains that this verse refers to a temporary blemish.

The penalty for transgressing this prohibition by bringing the animal as an offering is also lashes.3

And the 94th prohibition is that we are forbidden from burning the fats of a blemished animal [on the altar].

The source of this prohibition is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "Do not place any of them on the altar as a burnt-offering." The Sifra says, "The verse, 'Do not place any of them as a burnt-offering,' refers to the fats. The phrase, 'Do not place,' implies [that a prohibi­tion exists only if one burns] all of them. How do I know [that it is prohibited to burn] even some of them? This is derived from the phrase, 'any of them' — i.e. even some of them." It is therefore clear that one who sacrifices a blemished animal transgresses four prohibi­tions [N91-94].

But this is true only if we count burning the fats as a single pro­hibition. However, if we would count burning "all" of the fats and "some" of the fats as two prohibitions, as this Sage does here, you would have a total of five prohibitions. This is because he considers "some" of the fats to be one thing, and "all" of them to be something else, as he said, "even any of them."

This is so even though it [burning the fats] is essentially one pro­hibition, because this Sage holds that one is lashed for [each element of] a lav she'b'klalut [inclusive prohibition].2 Therefore the Sifra says, "One who offers a blemished animal on the altar transgresses five prohibitions: designating, slaughtering, sprinkling the blood, burning the fats, and burning a portion of the fats."
All animal blemishes, both permanent and temporary, are ex­plained in the sixth chapter of Bechorot. The laws regarding these four prohibitions dealing specifically with sacrificing a blemished animal are explained in various passages in tractates Zevachim and Temurah.

(It should be noted that there are two separate Hebrew words for "Fat". One is "Chelev", and means organ fat. It was this fat that was offered on the altar, and forbidden to eat in a non sacrificial cow, sheep or goat. The other word is "Shuman", which means fat distributed in the meat. It was not offered on the altar, and is permissible to eat.-J.S.)

And the 91st prohibition is that we are forbidden from designating a blemished animal as a sacrifice for the altar.

And the source of this prohibition is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), "Do not offer any blemished animal."

The Sifra says, "The verse, 'Do not offer any blemished animal' means that you may not designate it."

And the 92nd prohibition is that we are forbidden from slaughtering a blemished animal as a sacrifice.

The source of this prohibition is G‑d's statement1 (exalted be He), regarding blemished animals, "Do not offer them to G‑d."

The Sifra says, "The verse, 'Do not offer them to G‑d' means that you may not slaughter them."
