Negative Commandment 107 (Digest)
Switching the Sacrificial Designation of an Animal

"No one shall sanctify it"—Leviticus 27:26.

It is forbidden to switch the sacrificial designation of an animal; e.g., to take an animal designated as a Peace Offering and render it a Guilt Offering, or to take a Guilt Offering and switch it to a Sin Offering.

Positive Commandment 107 (Digest)
Ritual Impurity Contracted through Contact with a Corpse

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity contracted through contact with a human corpse. [I.e., if contracted, one must follow all the laws associated with this impurity.]

Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
