And when the days of their purification were fulfilled, according to the Torah of Moses, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present to ADONAI. 23. As it is written in the Torah of ADONAI, “Every firstborn male that opens the womb shall be called holy to ADONAI.” 24. So they offered a sacrifice according to what was said in the Torah of ADONAI: “a pair of turtle doves or two young pigeons.” [cf. Leviticus 12:8] (The Tree of Life Messianic Family Bible—The New Covenant, 2011)
