27:1 And the LORD spoke 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 thy estimation.
27:3 And thy estimation shall be, of the male from twenty years
old even to sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty
shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
27:4 And if it [shall be] a female, then thy estimation shall be
27:5 And if [it shall be] from five years old even to twenty
years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty
shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
27:6 And if [it shall be] from a month old even to 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 shall be] from sixty years old and above; if a
male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the
female ten shekels.
27:8 But if he shall 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
27:9 And if [it shall be] a beast of which men bring an offering
to the LORD, all that [any man] giveth 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 of it shall be holy.
27:11 And if [it shall 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 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] of it to thy 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 is 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 thy 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 thy estimation shall be according
to the seed of it: a homer of barley seed [shall be valued] at
fifty shekels of silver.
27:17 If he shall sanctify his field from the year of jubilee,
according to thy estimation it shall stand.
27:18 But if he shall sanctify his field after the jubilee, then
the priest shall reckon to him the money according to the years
that remain, even to 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 to it, and it shall be assured to him.
27:20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he shall 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 to the LORD, as a field devoted: the possession of it
shall be the priest's.
27:22 And if [a man] shall sanctify to the LORD a field which he
hath bought, which [is] not of the fields of his possession;
27:23 Then the priest shall reckon to him the worth of thy
estimation, [even] to the year of the jubilee, and he shall
give thy estimation in that day, [as] a holy thing to the LORD.
27:24 In the year of the jubilee, the field shall return to him
of whom it was bought, [even] to him to whom the possession of
the land [belonged].
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 ox, or
sheep: it [is] the LORD'S.
27:27 And if [it shall be] of an unclean beast, then he shall
redeem [it], according to thy estimation, and shall add to it a
fifth [part] of it: or if it shall be not redeemed, then it
shall be sold according to thy estimation.
27:28 Notwithstanding, no devoted thing that a man shall devote
to 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 to the LORD.
27:29 None devoted, which shall be devoted by 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 [aught] of his tithes, he
shall add to it the fifth [part] of it.
27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock,
[even] of whatever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be
holy to the LORD.
27:33 He shall not search whether it is good or bad, neither
shall he change it: and if he shall change it at all, then both
it and the change of it shall be holy; it shall not be
27:34 These [are] the commandments which the LORD commanded
Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
