Leviticus 27
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And YHWH speaks to Moses, saying, 2“Speak to the sons of Israel, and you have said to them: When a man makes a special vow in your valuation of persons to YHWH, 3then your valuation has been of the male from a son of twenty years even to a son of sixty years, and your valuation has been fifty shekels of silver by the shekel of the holy place. 4And if it [is] a female, then your valuation has been thirty shekels; 5and if from a son of five years even to a son of twenty years, then your valuation of the male has been twenty shekels, and for the female, ten shekels; 6and if from a son of a month even to a son of five years, then your valuation of the male has been five shekels of silver, and for the female your valuation [is] three shekels of silver; 7and if from a son of sixty years and above, if a male, then your valuation has been fifteen shekels, and for a female, ten shekels. 8And if he is poorer than your valuation, then he has presented himself before the priest, and the priest has valued him; according to that which the hand of him who is vowing reaches, the priest values him.

9And if [it is] a beast of which they bring near [as] an offering to YHWH, all that [one] gives of it to YHWH is holy; 10he does not change it nor exchange it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good; and if he really exchanges beast for beast, then it has been [holy] and its exchange is holy. 11And if [it is] any unclean beast of which they do not bring near [as] an offering to YHWH, then he has presented the beast before the priest, 12and the priest has valued it, whether good or bad; according to your valuation, O priest, so it is; 13and if he really redeems it, then he has added its fifth to your valuation.

14And when a man sanctifies his house [as] a holy thing to YHWH, then the priest has valued it, whether good or bad; as the priest values it so it stands; 15and if he who is sanctifying redeems his house, then he has added a fifth of the money of your valuation to it, and it has become his.

16And if a man sanctifies to YHWH from a field of his possession, then your valuation has been according to its seed—a homer of barley-seed at fifty shekels of silver; 17if he sanctifies his field from the Year of the Jubilee, according to your valuation it stands; 18and if he sanctifies his field after the Jubilee, then the priest has reckoned the money to him according to the years which are left, to the Year of the Jubilee, and it has been diminished from your valuation. 19And if he really redeems the field—he who is sanctifying it—then he has added a fifth of the money of your valuation to it, and it has been established to him; 20and if he does not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it is not redeemed anymore; 21and the field has been, in its going out in the Jubilee, holy to YHWH as a field which is devoted; his possession is for the priest. 22And if he sanctifies a field of his purchase to YHWH, which [is] not of the fields of his possession, 23then the priest has reckoned to him the amount of your valuation up to the Year of Jubilee, and he has given your valuation in that day [as] a holy thing to YHWH; 24in the Year of the Jubilee the field returns to him from whom he bought it, to him who [has] the possession of the land. 25And all your valuation is by the shekel of the holy place: the shekel is twenty gerahs.

26Only, a firstling which is YHWH’s firstling among beasts—no man sanctifies it, whether ox or sheep; it [is] YHWH’s. 27And if [from] among the unclean beast, then he has ransomed [it] at your valuation, and he has added its fifth to it; and if it is not redeemed, then it has been sold at your valuation.

28Only, no devoted thing which a man devotes to YHWH of all that he has, of man, and beast, and of the field of his possession, is sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to YHWH. 29No devoted thing, which is devoted of man, is ransomed, it is surely put to death.

30And all tithe of the land, of the seed of the land, of the fruit of the tree, is YHWH’s; [it is] holy to YHWH. 31And if a man really redeems [any] of his tithe, he adds its fifth to it. 32And all the tithe of the herd and of the flock—all that passes by under the rod—the tenth is holy to YHWH; 33he does not inquire between good and bad, nor does he exchange it; and if he really exchanges it, then it has been [holy] and its exchange is holy; it is not redeemed.”

34These [are] the commands which YHWH has commanded Moses for the sons of Israel in Mount Sinai.
