And if it be
from sixty years old and above; if it be
a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
Verse 7. Sixty years old
] The old man
and the old woman
being nearly past labour, were nearly of an equal value
the one was estimated at fifteen
., the other at ten
. This was about the same ratio as that of
the children, Le 27:5
, and for the same reason.
