First-Born, Redemption Of:

From the beginning the office of the priesthood in each family belonged to the eldest son. But when the extensive plan of sacrificial worship was introduced, requiring a company of men to be exclusively devoted to this ministry, the primitive office of the first-born was superseded by that of the Levites (Num 3:11-13), and it was ordained that the first-born of man and of unclean animals should henceforth be redeemed (18:15).

The laws concerning this redemption of the first-born of man are recorded in Exd 13:12-15; 22:29; 34:20; Num 3:45; 8:17; 18:16; Lev 12:2, 4.

The first-born male of every clean animal was to be given up to the priest for sacrifice (Deu 12:6; Exd 13:12; 34:20; Num 18:15-17).

But the first-born of unclean animals was either to be redeemed or sold and the price given to the priest (Lev 27:11-13,27). The first-born of an ass, if not redeemed, was to be put to death (Exd 13:13; 34:20).
