And if he shall not redeem the field, and if he sold the field to another man, it shall be redeemed no more. And the field in its going forth in the jubilee was holy to Jehovah, as a consecrated field: to the priest shall be its possession. And if the field of his purchase which is not from the field of his possession he shall consecrate to Jehovah; And the priest reckoned to him the number of thy estimation till the year of jubilee: and he gave thy estimation in that day, holy to Jehovah. In the year of the jubilee the field shall return to whom they bought it from him, to him to whom the possession of the land. And all thy estimation shall be according to the holy shekel: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel. But the first-born which shall be first to Jehovah among the cattle, a man shall not consecrate it; if an ox, if a sheep, it is to Jehovah. And if from unclean cattle, and he redeemed by thy estimation, and he shall add the fifth upon it: and if it shall not be redeemed, and it was sold by thy estimation.

Every thing consecrated which shall be consecrated from man, shall not be redeemed: dying, it shall die.

And if redeeming, a man shall redeem from his tenth, he shall add to its fifth upon it And all the tenth of cattle and sheep, all which shall pass through under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to Jehovah. He shall not search between good to evil, and he shall not exchange it; and if exchanging, he shall exchange it, and it was, it and its exchange shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
