The LORD said to Moses,
"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If anyone makes a special vow1 to dedicate persons to the LORD by giving equivalent values,
set the value of a male between the ages of twenty and sixty at fifty shekelsa of silver, according to the sanctuary shekelb;24
and if it is a female, set her value at thirty shekels.c5
If it is a person between the ages of five and twenty, set the value of a male at twenty shekelsd3 and of a female at ten shekels.e6
If it is a person between one month and five years, set the value of a male at five shekelsf4 of silver and that of a female at three shekelsg of silver.
If it is a person sixty years old or more, set the value of a male at fifteen shekelsh and of a female at ten shekels.
If anyone making the vow is too poor to pay5 the specified amount, he is to present the person to the priest, who will set the value6 for him according to what the man making the vow can afford.
