|Overview - Leviticus 27|
|1||He that makes a singular vow must be the Lord's.|
|3||The estimation of the person;|
|9||of a beast given by vow;|
|14||of a house;|
|16||of a field, and the redemption thereof.|
|28||No devoted thing may be redeemed.|
|30||The tithe may not be changed.|
Leviticus 27:27 (King James Version)
And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.
- and shall add
- This was probably intended to prevent rash vows and covetous redemptions. The priest alone was to value the thing; and to whatever his valuation was, a fifth part must be added by him who wished to redeem it.
