Neither should you accept a ransom for the person who flees to his city of refuge, allowing him to return and live in the land before the death of the high priest.
No person who has been set apart for destruction is to be ransomed; he must be put to death.
He is not to inspect whether it is good or bad, and he is not to make a substitution for it. But if he does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute will be holy; they cannot be redeemed.”
“Nothing that a man permanently sets apart to the Lord from all he owns, whether a person, an animal, or his inherited landholding, can be sold or redeemed; everything set apart is especially holy to the Lord.
But if he does not redeem the field or if he has sold it to another man, it is no longer redeemable.
He will not be appeased by anything
or be persuaded by lavish gifts.
Yet these cannot redeem a person
or pay his ransom to God— since the price of redeeming him is too costly,
one should forever stop trying— so that he may live forever
and not see the Pit.
