80 - REDEEMING THE FIRST-BORN


Exodus 22:29 -- "You shall not delay to offer the first of your ripe produce and your juices. The firstborn of your sons you shall give to Me.”
Exodus 13:13c -- “And all the firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem.”
Numbers 18:15 -- “Everything that first opens the womb of all flesh, which they bring to the LORD, whether man or beast, shall be yours; nevertheless the firstborn of man you shall surely redeem, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem.”

This obligation is not binding upon women: it is a duty incumbent upon a father in relation to his son, as explained in Kiddushin.*

* Kid. 29a (Sonc. ed. pp. 137 ff.)
