Redeeming What Is the Lordís
27:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
27:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,
When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be
for the LORD by thy estimation.
27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty
years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation
shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the
27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be
27:5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty
years old, then thy 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 unto five years
old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels
of silver, and for the female thy 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 thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and
for the female ten shekels.
27:8 But if he be poorer than thy 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 him.
27:9 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 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
27:11 And 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:
27:12 And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or
bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be.
27:13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a
fifth part thereof unto thy estimation.
27:14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy
unto the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it
be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it
27:15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house,
then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy
estimation unto it, and it shall be his.
27:16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD some part
of a field of his possession, then thy 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 jubilee,
according to thy estimation it shall stand.
27:18 But if he sanctify his field after the jubilee, then
the priest shall reckon unto him the money according to the
years that remain, even unto the year of the jubilee, and it
shall be abated from thy 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
thy estimation unto 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
27:21 But the field, when it goeth out in the jubilee,
shall be holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted; the
possession thereof shall be the priest's.
27:22 And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he
hath bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;
27:23 Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of
thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubilee: and he
shall give thine estimation in that day, as a holy thing
unto the LORD.
27:24 In the year of the jubilee the field shall return
unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the
possession of the land did belong.
27:25 And all thy 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 thine estimation, and shall add a
fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it
shall be sold according to thy estimation.
27:28 Notwithstanding no devoted 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.
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 unto the LORD.
27:31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes,
he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the
flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth
shall be holy unto 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
27:34 These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded
Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
