27:4 Thirty shekels - Less than the man's price, because she is inferior to him both in strength and serviceableness.

27:5 Five years old - At which age they might be vowed by their parents, as appears from #1Sam 1:11 |- 28, tho' not by themselves; and the children were obliged by their parents vow, which is not strange considering the parents right to dispose of their children so far as is not contrary to the mind of God.

27:8 Than thy estimation - If he be not able to pay the price which thou, according to the rules here given, requirest of him.
