He that maketh a singular vow must be the LORD's.
Leviticus 27:1 Moreouer the Lord spake vnto Moses, saying, Leviticus 27:2 Speake vnto the children of Israel, and say vnto them, If any man shall make a vowe of a person vnto the Lord, by thy estimation,
The estimation of the person.
Leviticus 27:3 Then thy estimation shall bee thus: a male from twentie yeere olde vnto sixty yeere olde shalbe by thy estimation euen fifty shekels of siluer, after the shekel of the Sanctuarie. Leviticus 27:4 But if it be a female, then thy valuation shal be thirtie shekels. Leviticus 27:5 And from fiue yere old to twentie yere olde thy valuation shall be for the male twentie shekels, and for the female ten shekels. Leviticus 27:6 But fro a moneth old vnto fiue yere old, thy price of the male shall bee fiue shekels of siluer, and thy price of the female, three shekels of siluer. Leviticus 27:7 And from sixty yeere olde and aboue, if he be a male, then thy price shalbe fifteene shekels, and for the female ten shekels. Leviticus 27:8 But if he be poorer then thou hast esteemed him, then shall hee present himselfe before the Priest, & the Priest shal value him, according to the abilitie of him that vowed, so shall the Priest value him.
Of a beast given by vow.
Leviticus 27:9 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering vnto the Lorde, all that one giueth of such vnto the Lorde, shalbe holy. Leviticus 27:10 He shall not alter it nor change it, a good for a badde, nor a badde for a good: and if hee change beast for beast, then both this and that, which was changed for it, shall be holy. Leviticus 27:11 And if it be any vncleane beast, of which men do not offer a sacrifice vnto the Lorde, hee shall then present the beast before the Priest. Leviticus 27:12 And the Priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: and as thou valuest it, which art the Priest, so shall it bee. Leviticus 27:13 But if he will bye it againe, then hee shall giue the fift part of it more, aboue thy valuation.
Of a house.
Leviticus 27:14 Also whe a man shall dedicate his house to be holy vnto the Lorde, then the Priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad, and as ye Priest shall prise it, so shall the value be. Leviticus 27:15 But if he that sanctified it, will redeeme his house, then hee shall giue thereto the fift part of money more then thy estimation, & it shalbe his.
Of a field, and the redemption thereof.
Leviticus 27:16 If also a man dedicate to the Lorde any grounde of his inheritance, then shalt thou esteeme it according to the seede therof: an Homer of barlie seede shalbe at fiftie shekels of siluer. Leviticus 27:17 If he dedicate his field immediately from the yeere of Iubile, it shall bee worth as thou doest esteeme it. Leviticus 27:18 But if hee dedicate his fielde after the Iubile, then the Priest shall recken him the money according to ye yeeres that remaine vnto the yere of Iubile, and it shalbe abated by thy estimation. Leviticus 27:19 And if he that dedicateth it, will redeeme the fielde, then he shall put the fift parte of the price, that thou esteemedst it at, thereunto, and it shall remaine his. Leviticus 27:20 And if he will not redeeme the fielde, but the Priest sell the fielde to another man, it shalbe redeemed no more. Leviticus 27:21 But the field shalbe holy to the Lord, whe it goeth out in the Iubile, as a fielde separate from common vses: the possession thereof shall be the Priests. Leviticus 27:22 If a man also dedicate vnto ye Lord a fielde which he hath bought, which is not of the groud of his inheritance, Leviticus 27:23 Then the Priest shall set the price to him, as thou esteemest it, vnto the yeere of Iubile, & he shall giue thy price the same day, as a thing holy vnto the Lord. Leviticus 27:24 But in the yeere of Iubile, the fielde shall returne vnto him, of whome it was bought: to him, I say, whose inheritance the land was. Leviticus 27:25 And all thy valuation shall bee according to the shekel of the Sanctuarie: a shekel conteyneth twenty gerahs.
Leviticus 27:26 Notwithstanding the first borne of the beastes, because it is the Lordes first borne, none shall dedicate such, be it bullocke, or sheepe; for it is the Lords. Leviticus 27:27 But if it be an vncleane beast, then he shall redeeme it by thy valuation, and giue the fift part more thereto: & if it be not redeemed, then it shalbe solde, according to thy estimation.
No devoted thing may be redeemed.
Leviticus 27:28 Notwithstanding, nothing separate from the common vse that a man doeth separate vnto the Lord of all that he hath (whether it bee man or beast, or lande of his inheritance) may be solde nor redeemed: for euery thing separate from the common vse is most holy vnto the Lorde. Leviticus 27:29 Nothing separate from the common vse, which shall be separate from man, shalbe redeemed, but dye the death. Leviticus 27:30 Also all the tithe of the lande both of the seede of the ground, and of the fruite of the trees is the Lords: it is holy to the Lorde. Leviticus 27:31 But if a man will redeeme any of his tithe, he shal adde the fift part thereto.
The tithe may not be changed.
Leviticus 27:32 And euery tithe of bullock, and of sheepe, and of all that goeth vnder the rod, the tenth shalbe holy vnto the Lord. Leviticus 27:33 He shal not looke if it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: els if he change it, both it, and that it was changed withall, shalbe holy, and it shall not be redeemed. Leviticus 27:34 These are the commaundements which the Lord commaunded by Moses vnto the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
