|Le 27:1||He that makes a singular vow must be the Lord's. |
¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When1 a man shall make a singular vow2, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.
|Le 27:3||The estimation of the person; |
And thy estimation3 shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels4 of silver, after the5 shekel of the sanctuary.
And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels6.
And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels7, and for the female ten shekels.
And if it be from8 a month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male9 five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
And if it be from10 sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen11 shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
But if he be poorer12 than thy estimation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according13 to his ability that vowed shall the priest value him.
|Le 27:9||of a beast given by vow; |
And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy14.
¶15He 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.
16And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the priest:
And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest17, so shall it be.
18But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof unto thy estimation.
|Le 27:14||of a house; |
¶ And when a man shall sanctify19 his house to be holy unto the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest20 shall estimate it, so shall it stand.
And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add21 the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be his.
|Le 27:16||of a field, and the redemption thereof. |
And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part22 of a field23 of his possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof: an homer24 of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.
JUBILEE, YEAR OF
If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according to thy estimation it shall stand.
25But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the priest shall reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain, even unto the year of the jubile, and it shall be abated from thy estimation.
26And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him.
¶ 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.
But the field, when27 it goeth out in the jubile, shall be holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted28; the possession thereof shall be the priest's29.
And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath bought, which is not of the fields of his possession30;
31Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give thine estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD.
32In the year of the jubile the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did belong.
And all33 thy estimations shall be according to the shekel34 of the sanctuary: twenty35 gerahs shall be the shekel.
¶ Only the firstling36 of the beasts, which37 should be the LORD'S firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep: it is the LORD'S.
And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add38 a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.
|Le 27:28||No devoted thing may be redeemed. |
Notwithstanding no devoted39 thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.
None40 devoted, which shall be devoted41 of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.
|Le 27:30||The tithe may not be changed. |
¶42And 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 unto the LORD.
43And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod44, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
45He 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.
These are the commandments46, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount47 Sinai.
