He that maketh a singular vow must be the LORD's.
Leviticus 27:1 And the Lord spake vnto Moses sayinge: Leviticus 27:2 speake vnto the children of Israel, and saye vnto them: If any man will geue a synguler vowe vnto þe Lord accordynge to the value of the soules,
The estimation of the person.
Leviticus 27:3 the value of the male from twentye yeare olde vnto sixtye shalbe fyftie sycles of siluer, after the weyght of the sanctuary. Leviticus 27:4 And yf it be a female, the value shalbe thyrtye sicles. Leviticus 27:5 And from fyue yeares to twentye, the male shalbe set at twentye sicles, and the female at ten sycles. Leviticus 27:6 And from a moneth vnto fyue yeare, the male shalbe set at fyue sycles of syluer, and the female at thre. Leviticus 27:7 And he that is syxtie yeare olde, and aboue, shalbe valued at fiftene sicles, and the woman at ten. Leviticus 27:8 But If he be to poore so to be set, he shall present himselfe before the preast: & the preast shall value him, accordinge as the hande of him þt vowed is able to gett, euen so shall the prest value him.
Of a beast given by vow.
Leviticus 27:9 If it be a beaste of which men bringe an offrynge vnto the Lorde: all that any man geueth of soche vnto the Lorde, shalbe counted holy. Leviticus 27:10 He shall not alter it nor chaunge it: a good for a bad, or a bad for a good. And yf he chaunge beast for beast, then both the same beast and it also wherwith it was chaunged shalbe holy. Leviticus 27:11 If it be any maner of vnclene beast, of which men do not offer a sacrifyce vnto the Lord, he shall set the beast before the preast, Leviticus 27:12 and the preast shall value it, whether it be good or bad. And as þe preast setteth it, so shall it be. Leviticus 27:13 But yf he will bye it agayne, he shall geue the fyft parte moare about that it was set at.
Of a house.
Leviticus 27:14 If any man dedicate his house, to be holy vnto the Lord, the preast shall set it, whether it be good or bad: and as the preast hath set it, so shall the value be. Leviticus 27:15 And whan he that sanctifyed it wyll redeme hys house, lett hym geue the fyft parte of the money that it was iudged at therto, and it shalbe hys.
Of a field, and the redemption thereof.
Leviticus 27:16 If a man halowe a pece of hys enhereted lande vnto the Lorde, it shalbe set accordynge to þe sede therof. If it beare an homer of barlye, it shalbe set at fyftie sycles of syluer. Leviticus 27:17 If he halowe his felde immediatly from the yeare of iubely, it shalbe worth accordinge as it is estemed. Leviticus 27:18 But and yf he halowe hys felde after the Iubelye, the preast shall recken the money accordinge to the nombre of the yeares that remayne vnto the yeare of Iubely folowynge, & there after it shall be lower sett. Leviticus 27:19 If he that consecrated the felde, wyll redeme it agayne, let hym put the fyft parte of the pryce that it was set at there vnto, Leviticus 27:20 and it shalbe hys, And yf he wyll not redeme the felde, but selleth the felde to another man, he maye redeme it nomore. Leviticus 27:21 But when the felde goeth out in the yeare of iubelye, it shalbe made holy vnto the Lord: euen as a felde that is vtterly put awaye, and it shall be the preastes possessyon. Leviticus 27:22 If a man sanctyfye vnto the Lord a felde, whych he hath boughte, and is not of his enheritaunce, Leviticus 27:23 the preast shall reken vnto hym what it is worth vnto the yeare of iubelye, & he shall geue the pryce that it is set at, the same daye, as a thynge consecrated vnto the Lorde. Leviticus 27:24 And in the yeare of iubelye, the felde shall returne vnto him of whome he boughte it, euen to him, whose enheritaunce of land it is. Leviticus 27:25 And all settynge shalbe accordynge to the cycle of the sanctuary. One sycle conteyneth twenye halfpens.
Leviticus 27:26 But the fyrst borne of the beastes that is appoynted vnto the Lorde, maye no man sanctifye: whether it be oxe or shepe, for it is the Lordes allredy. Leviticus 27:27 If it be an vncleane beast, he shall redeme it, as it is sett at, and geue the fyfth parte moare therto: Or, yf it be not redemed, it shalbe solde, accordynge to the value.
No devoted thing may be redeemed.
Leviticus 27:28 Notwithstandynge, no damned thynge that a man putteth from hym and dedycateth vnto the Lorde, of all his good (whether it be man or beast or lande of hys enheritaunce) maye be sold or redemed: for euery thinge so put awaye, is most holy vnto the Lorde. Leviticus 27:29 Let no damned thynge that a man separateth, be redemed, but dye the death. Leviticus 27:30 Euery tyth of the lande whych is of the sede of the lande, or of the frute of the trees, is the Lordes, and is sanctified vnto þe Lord. Leviticus 27:31 And yf a man wyll redeme ought of hys tythes, let him adde the fifth parte therto.
The tithe may not be changed.
Leviticus 27:32 And euery tyth of oxe and of shepe and of euery beest that goeth vnder the rodd euen euery tenth shalbe holy vnto the Lord. Leviticus 27:33 He shall not loke yf it be good or bad, ner chaunge it. Els, yf he chaunge it, both it, and that it was chaunged withall, shalbe halowed vnto the Lorde, and maye not be redemed. Leviticus 27:34 These are the commaundementes, whych the Lorde commaunded by Moses vnto the chyldren of Israel in mount Sinai.
