Another significant contradiction in the Torah

I wanted to direct your attention to another significant contradiction found in the Torah. 

Let's take a look:

THIS
CLV Ex 13:2 Hallow to Me every firstborn male, opening up every womb, among the sons of Israel, among human and among beast. It is Mine. 
CLV Ex 13:15 When it came to be that Pharaoh was obstinate to dismiss us, then Yahuah killed every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of human unto the firstborn of beast. Therefore I am sacrificing to Yahweh all the males opening up the womb; yet I am ransoming every firstborn of my sons. 
CLV Ex 22:29 You shall not delay to offer from your fullness and your fruit juice. The firstborn of your sons shall you give to Me. 
CLV Ex 22:30 So shall you do with your bull, with your flock and your donkey. Seven days it shall be with its mother; on the eighth day shall you give it to Me. 
CLV Lv 27:26 However the firstborn among beasts which as firstborn is devoted to Yahuah, no one may sanctify it; whether a bull or a flockling, it is already Yahuah's. 
CLV Num 18:17 Only the firstborn of kine or the firstborn of sheep or the firstborn of goats you shall not ransom. They are holy. Their blood you shall sprinkle against the altar, and their fat you shall cause to fume as a fire offering for a fragrant odor to Yahuah. 
CONTRADICTS THIS
CLV Dt 12:17 You cannot eat within your gates the tithe of your grain, of your grape juice and of your clarified oil, neither the firstlings of your herd and your flock nor any of your vow offerings which you shall vow, neither your voluntary offerings nor the heave offerings of your hand. 
CLV Dt 12:18 But rather you shall eat it before Yahuah your Elohim in the place that Yahuah your Elohim shall choose, you, your son and your daughter, your servant and your maidservant and the Levite who is within your gates. Then you will rejoice before Yahuah your Elohim in every undertaking of your hand. 
CLV Dt 12:21 In case the place where Yahuah your Elohim shall choose to place His name is far from you, then you may sacrifice of your herd and of your flock which Yahuah gave to you, just as I instructed you; and you may eat it within your gates with all the yearning of your soul. 
CLV Dt 14:22 You shall tithe, yea tithe all the yield of your seed which is coming forth from the field year by year. 
CLV Dt 14:23 You will eat before Yahuah your Elohim, in the place where Yahuah your Elohim shall choose to tabernacle His name, the tenth of your grain, your grape juice and your clarified oil, the firstlings of your herd and of your flock, that you may learn to fear Yahuah your Elohim all the days. 
CLV Dt 15:19 All the firstborn males that shall be born in your herd and in your flock you shall sanctify to Yahuah your Elohim. You shall neither serve with the firstborn of your kine nor shall you shear the firstborn of your flock. 
CLV Dt 15:20 You shall eat it before Yahuah your Elohim year by year in the place that Yahuah shall choose, you and your household. 
As you can see, the first set of verses says that all first-born clean animals are Yahuah's and only Levites can eat it. Yet the second set says that regular people can also eat first-born clean animals. 

So which is it?

In this particular case, it is the issue of the Book of Deuteronomy most likely. I think these passages are incorrect or should be interpreted in a way that does not contradict the statements of other books.
