Of vows and their redemption
27:1 And the LORD spake to Moses, saying,
27:2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them,
When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons [shall be] for
the LORD by your estimation.
27:3 And your estimation shall be of the male from twenty
years old even to sixty years old, even your estimation shall be
fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
27:4 And if it [be] a female, then your estimation shall be
27:5 And if [it be] from five years old even to twenty
years old, then your estimation shall be of the male twenty
shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
27:6 And if [it be] from a month old even to five years
old, then your estimation shall be of the male five shekels of
silver, and for the female your estimation [shall be] three
shekels of silver.
27:7 And if [it be] from sixty years old and above ; if [it
be] a male, then your estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for
the female ten shekels.
27:8 But if he be poorer than your estimation, then he shall
present himself before the priest, and the priest shall value
him; according to his ability that vowed shall the priest value
27:9 And if [it be] a beast, whereof men bring an offering to the LORD, all that [any man] gives of such to the LORD
shall be holy.
27:10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad,
or a bad for a good and if he shall at all change beast for
beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy.
27:11 And if [it be] any unclean beast, of which they do not
offer a sacrifice to the LORD, then he shall present the beast
before the priest
27:12 And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or
bad as you valuest it, [who are] the priest, so shall it be.
27:13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a
fifth [part] thereof to your estimation.
27:14 And when a man shall sanctify his house [to be] holy to the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be
good or bad as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand.
27:15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house,
then he shall add the fifth [part] of the money of your estimation to it, and it shall be his.
27:16 And if a man shall sanctify to the LORD [some part]
of a field of his possession, then your estimation shall be
according to the seed thereof an homer of barley seed [shall be
valued] at fifty shekels of silver.
27:17 If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile,
according to your estimation it shall stand.
27:18 But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the
priest shall reckon to him the money according to the years
that remain, even to the year of the jubile, and it shall be
abated from your estimation.
27:19 And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem
it, then he shall add the fifth [part] of the money of your
estimation to it, and it shall be assured to him.
27:20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the
field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.
27:21 But the field, when it goes out in the jubile, shall be
holy to the LORD, as a field devoted ; the possession thereof
shall be the priest's.
27:22 And if [a man] sanctify to the LORD a field which he has
bought, which [is] not of the fields of his possession ;
27:23Then the priest shall reckon to him the worth of your
estimation, [even] to the year of the jubile and he shall give
your estimation in that day, [as] a holy thing to the LORD.
27:24 In the year of the jubile the field shall return to him
of whom it was bought, [even] to him to whom the possession of
the land [did belong].
27:25 And all your estimations shall be according to the shekel of
the sanctuary twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.
27:26 Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the
LORD'S firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether [it be] ox,
or sheep it [is] the LORD'S.
27:27 And if [it be] of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem
[it] according to your estimation, and shall add a fifth [part]
of it thereto or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold
according to your estimation.
27:28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote to the LORD of all that he has, [both] of man and beast, and
of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed every
devoted thing [is] most holy to the LORD.
27:29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be
redeemed ; [but] shall surely be put to death.
27:30 And all the tithe of the land, [whether] of the seed of the
land, [or] of the fruit of the tree, [is] the LORD'S [it is] holy to the LORD.
27:31 And if a man will at all redeem [ought] of his tithes, he
shall add thereto the fifth [part] thereof.
Tithes may not be changed
27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock,
[even] of what ever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be
holy to the LORD.
27:33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither
shall he change it and if he change it at all, then both it and
the change thereof shall be holy ; it shall not be redeemed.
27:34 These [are] the commandments, which the LORD commanded
Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
