 27:27
27:26 A firstling animal which must be sacrificed as a first-born offering to God may not be consecrated by an individual. Whether it is an ox, sheep, or goat, it [automatically] belongs to God.
Ach-bechor asher yevukar la'Adonay bivhemah lo-yakdish ish oto im-shor im-seh l'Adonay hu.
27:27 If a non-kosher animal [is consecrated], it shall be redeemed for its endowment valuation plus an additional 20%. If it is not redeemed, it shall be sold for its endowment value.
Ve'im babehemah hatme'ah ufadah ve'erkecha veyasaf chamishito alav ve'im-lo yiga'el venimkar be'erkecha.



Commentary:

may not be consecrated
