Again, the LORDspoke to Moses, saying,
2"Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, '1When a manmakes a difficultvow, he shall be valued according to your valuation of persons belonging to the LORD.
'If your valuation is of the male from twentyyears even to sixtyyearsold, then your valuation shall be fiftyshekels of silver, after 2the shekel of the sanctuary.
'Or if it is a female, then your valuation shall be thirtyshekels.
5'If it be from fiveyears even to twentyyearsold then your valuation for the male shall be twentyshekels and for the femaletenshekels.
'But if they are from a month even up to fiveyearsold, then your valuation shall be 3fiveshekels of silver for the male, and for the female your valuation shall be threeshekels of silver.
7'If they are from sixtyyearsold and upward, if it is a male, then your valuation shall be fifteenshekels, and for the femaletenshekels.
'But if he is poorerthan your valuation, then he shall be placedbefore the priest and the priest shall value him; 4according to athe means of the one who vowed, the priest shall value him.
'Now if it is an animal of the kind whichbmen can present as an offering to the LORD, anysuch that one gives to the LORD shall be holy.
'5He shall not replace it or exchange it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good; or if he doesexchangeanimal for animal, then both it and its substitute shall becomeholy.
11'If, however, it is anyuncleananimal of the kind whichcmen do not present as an offering to the LORD, then he shall place the animalbefore the priest.
'The priest shall value it das eithergoodorbad; as you, the priest, value it, so it shall be.
'But if he should ever wish to redeem it, then he shall addone-fifth of it to your valuation.
'Now if a manconsecrates his house as holy to the LORD, then the priest shall value it eas eithergoodorbad; as the priestvalues it, so it shall stand.
'Yet if the one who consecrates it should wish to redeem his house, then he shall addone-fifth of your valuationprice to it, so that it may be his.
'Again, if a manconsecrates to the LORD part of the fields of his own property, then your valuation shall be fproportionate to the seed needed for it: a homer of barleyseed at fiftyshekels of silver.
17'If he consecrates his field as of the year of jubilee, according to your valuation it shall stand.
18'If he consecrates his fieldafter the jubilee, however, then the priest shall calculate the price for ghim hproportionate to the years that are leftuntil the year of jubilee; and it shall be deducted from your valuation.
19'If the one who consecrates it should ever wish to redeem the field, then he shall addone-fifth of your valuationprice to it, so that it may pass to him.
'Yet if he will not redeem the field, ibut has sold the field to anotherman, it may nolonger be redeemed;
and when it jreverts in the jubilee, the field shall be holy to the LORD, like a fieldksetapart; 6it shall be for the priest as his lproperty.
'Or if he consecrates to the LORD a field which he has bought, which is not a part of the field of his own mproperty,
then the priest shall calculate for nhim the amount of your valuation up to the year of jubilee; and he shall on that daygive your valuation as holy to the LORD.
'In the year of jubilee the field shall return to the one from whom he bought it, to whom the possession of the land belongs.
25'Everyvaluation of yours, moreover, shall be after 7the shekel of the sanctuary. The shekel shall be twentygerahs.
'8However, a firstborn among animals, which as a firstborn belongs to the LORD, noman may consecrate it; whetheroxorsheep, it is the LORD'S.
'But if it is among the uncleananimals, then he shall oredeem it according to your valuation and add to it one-fifth of it; and if it is not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your valuation.
28'Nevertheless, 9anythingwhich a manpsetsapart to the LORD out of all that he has, of man or animal or of the fields of his own property, shall not be sold or redeemed. Anythingqdevoted to destruction is mostholy to the LORD.
29'Noronewho may have been ssetapartamongmen shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death.
'Thus 10all the tithe of the land, of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD'S; it is holy to the LORD.
31'If, therefore, a manwishes to redeem part of his tithe, he shall add to it one-fifth of it.
'For everytenthpart of herd or flock, whatever11passesunder the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the LORD.
'12He is not to be concernedwhether it is good or bad, nor shall he exchange it; or if he doesexchange it, then both it and its substitute shall becomeholy. It shall not be redeemed.' "
3413These are the commandmentswhich the LORDcommandedMoses for the sons of Israel at MountSinai.
