יט רְאוּבֵן שֶׁאָמַר לְשִׁמְעוֹן: בְּדֹק סַכִּין זוֹ, וּבְדָקָהּ שְׁנֵי פְּעָמִים מהי”ב שֶׁצָּרִיךְ וּנְתָנָהּ לִרְאוּבֵן, וּרְאוּבֵן הָיָה הוֹלֵךְ לִשְׁחֹט וּלְקָחָהּ לֵוִי מִיָּדוֹ וּמְצָאָהּ פְּגוּמָה.וּרְאוּבֵן מִתְנַצֵּל וְאוֹמֵר שֶׁעֲדַיִן הָיָה רוֹצֶה לְבָדְקָהּ כַּהֹגֶן, מַעֲשָׂיו מוֹכִיחִים עָלָיו, שֶׁהָיָה דַּי לוֹ בְּאוֹתָהּ בְּדִיקָה, וּלְפִיכָךְ מַעֲבִירִין אוֹתוֹ; וְאִם נִרְאִים הַדְּבָרִים שֶׁהָיָה כְּעֵין שְׁגָגָה, וְשֶׁהוּא אָדָם כָּשֵׁר, מַחֲזִירִין אוֹתוֹ, וּבִלְבַד שֶׁיְּקַבֵּל עָלָיו שֶׁלֹּא יָשׁוּב עוֹד לְדָבָר כָּזֶה.

(If) Reuven tells Shimon, check this knife, and he checked it twice but needed to check it 12 times and he then hands it back to Reuven, while Reuven was going to slaughter Levi stopped his hand and found a defect on the knife.

Reuven then apologizes and says he wants (the knife) re-checked further properly.

(however) His actions prove him, and it was enough for him to check for this reason we remove him.

And if we see that the situation arose out of error, and that he actually is kosher we then re-instate him, this is done solely that he understands not to repeat such a thing.
