||Do not plant different species in your vineyard. [If you do so] the yield of both the crops you planted and the fruit of the vineyard will be forfeit.
Lo-tizra karmecha kil'ayim pen-tikdash hamle'ah hazera asher tizra utvu'at hakarem.
||Do not plow with an ox and donkey together.
Lo-tacharosh beshor uvachamor yachdav.
||Do not wear a forbidden mixture, where wool and linen are together [in a single garment].
Lo tilbash sha'atnez tsemer ufishtim yachdav.
See Leviticus 19:19 (Berakhoth 22a; Sefer HaMitzvoth, Negative 216; Yad, Kelayim 5:1; Chinukh 548). The mixtures forbidden in the vineyard are primarily the same as those forbidden otherwise, but if they are planted in a vineyard they become forbidden, for any use at all (Yad, Kelayim 5:4, Maakhaloth Assuroth 10:6). See below.
(Rashbam; Ralbag). Literally, 'sanctified.' Or, 'an abomination' (Targum), or, 'fit to be burned' (Kiddushin 56b; Targum Yonathan). See note, this verse, 'fruit'.

|wool and linen|
Some say that this was forbidden because such mixtures were reserved for the priests (Baaley Tosafoth; Chizzkuni; Josephus, Antiqities 4:8:11). Others say that it is forbidden because such mixtures were worn by gentile priests (Moreh Nevukhim 3:37; Chinukh 551). Other sources indicate that it is forbidden because sheep were the sacrifice of Abel while linen was the sacrifice of Cain (Pirkey Rabbi Eliezer 21; Tanchuma, Bereshith 9; Chizzkuni).
