First-Born, Redemption of
The laws concerning this redemption of the first-born of man are recorded in Exodus 13:12-15; 22:29; 34:20; Numbers 3:45; 8:17; 18:16; Leviticus 12:2,4 .
The first-born male of every clean animal was to be given up to the priest for sacrifice (Deuteronomy 12:6; Exodus 13:12; 34:20; Numbers 18:15-17 ).
But the first-born of unclean animals was either to be redeemed or sold and the price given to the priest (Leviticus 27:11-13,27 ). The first-born of an ass, if not redeemed, was to be put to death (Exodus 13:13; 34:20 ).
