Positive Commandment 93 (Digest)
The Procedure for the Conclusion of a Nazirite Term

"When the days of his nazirite vow are fulfilled..."Numbers 6:13.

When a nazirite concludes his term, he must follow the procedure outlined in the Torah, which includes shaving his head and bringing specified sacrifices.

Positive Commandment 114 (Digest)
Donating the Value of a Person

"If a man makes a vow, [pledging] the value of lives"—Leviticus 27:2.

If a person pledges to give the value of a particular person to G‑d, he must follow the law prescribed in the Torah. The amount owed depends on the age and gender of the person whose value was pledged, and also on the financial means of the person who made the pledge.


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.
