If, after a flock has come up from a meadow, the “termination pennants”? have been hung from the city gate, (yet) the shepherd let the flock go to a field (i.e., put the flock out to pasture), and allowed the flock to use the field, the shepherd will look after the field he allowed to be used and will measure out sixty kor of grain per būrum to the owner of the field at harvest time.
