Leviticus 27:32 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

What belonged to the Lord by law could not be dedicated to Him by a vow, especially the first-born of clean cattle (cf. Exodus 13:1-2). The first-born of unclean animals were to be redeemed according to the valuation of the priest, with the addition of a fifth; and if this was not done, it was to be sold at the estimated value. By this regulation the earlier law, which commanded that an ass should either be redeemed with a sheep or else be put to death (Exodus 13:13; Exodus 34:20), was modified in favour of the revenues of the sanctuary and its servants.

passeth under the rod. The Rabbins say, that when a man gave the tithe of his sheep of calves, he shut them in one fold, in which was a narrow door, to let out but one at a time. He then stood by the door, with a rod dipped in vermilion in his hand, and as they passed he counted them with the rod; and when the {tenth} came he touched it, by which it was distinguished as the tithe calf, sheep, etc.
