If the person dedicates land they purchased to the LORD—land that is not part of their family property—
the priest will calculate the amount of its value until the Jubilee year. The person must pay the value on that day as a holy donation to the LORD.
In the Jubilee year the piece of land will return to the seller, to the one who is the original owner of the family property.
Every value will be according to the sanctuary's shekel. The shekel will be twenty gerahs.
But note that a person cannot dedicate any oldest offspring from livestock, which already belongs to the LORD because it is the oldest. Whether ox or sheep, it belongs to the LORD.
If it is an unclean animal, it may be bought back at its value plus twenty percent. If it is not bought back, it will be sold at its set value.
Also note that everything someone devotesa to the LORD from their possessions—whether humans, animals, or pieces of land from their family property—cannot be sold or bought back. Every devoted thing is most holy to the LORD.
No human beings that have been devoted can be bought back; they must be executed.
All tenth-part giftsb from the land, whether of seed from the ground or fruit from the trees, belong to the LORD; they are holy to the LORD.
If someone wishes to buy back part of their tenth-part gift, they must add one-fifth to it.
All tenth-part gifts from a herd or flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd's staff—will be holy to the LORD.
