8 ‘But if the man has no 1relative to whom restitution may be made for the wrong, the restitution which is made for the wrong must go to the Lord for the priest, besides the ram of atonement, by which atonement is made for him.
10 ‘So every man’s holy gifts shall be his; whatever any man gives to the priest, it abecomes his.’ ”
