New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 1 The LORD said to Moses,
2 Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: When a person makes an explicit vow to the Lord concerning the equivalent for a human being, 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'If anyone makes a special vow to dedicate persons to the LORD by giving equivalent values,
3 the equivalent for a male shall be: from twenty to sixty years of age the equivalent shall be fifty shekels of silver by the sanctuary shekel. 3 set the value of a male between the ages of twenty and sixty at fifty shekels of silver, according to the sanctuary shekel;
4 If the person is a female, the equivalent is thirty shekels. 4 and if it is a female, set her value at thirty shekels.
5 If the age is from five to twenty years of age, the equivalent is twenty shekels for a male and ten shekels for a female. 5 If it is a person between the ages of five and twenty, set the value of a male at twenty shekels and of a female at ten shekels.
6 If the age is from one month to five years, the equivalent for a male is five shekels of silver, and for a female the equivalent is three shekels of silver. 6 If it is a person between one month and five years, set the value of a male at five shekels of silver and that of a female at three shekels of silver.
7 And if the person is sixty years old or over, then the equivalent for a male is fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels. 7 If it is a person sixty years old or more, set the value of a male at fifteen shekels and of a female at ten shekels.
8 If any cannot afford the equivalent, they shall be brought before the priest and the priest shall assess them; the priest shall assess them according to what each one making a vow can afford. 8 If anyone making the vow is too poor to pay the specified amount, he is to present the person to the priest, who will set the value for him according to what the man making the vow can afford.
9 If it concerns an animal that may be brought as an offering to the Lord, any such that may be given to the Lord shall be holy. 9 " 'If what he vowed is an animal that is acceptable as an offering to the LORD, such an animal given to the LORD becomes holy.
10 Another shall not be exchanged or substituted for it, either good for bad or bad for good; and if one animal is substituted for another, both that one and its substitute shall be holy. 10 He must not exchange it or substitute a good one for a bad one, or a bad one for a good one; if he should substitute one animal for another, both it and the substitute become holy.
11 If it concerns any unclean animal that may not be brought as an offering to the Lord, the animal shall be presented before the priest. 11 If what he vowed is a ceremonially unclean animal--one that is not acceptable as an offering to the LORD--the animal must be presented to the priest,
12 The priest shall assess it: whether good or bad, according to the assessment of the priest, so it shall be. 12 who will judge its quality as good or bad. Whatever value the priest then sets, that is what it will be.
13 But if it is to be redeemed, one-fifth must be added to the assessment. 13 If the owner wishes to redeem the animal, he must add a fifth to its value.
14 If a person consecrates a house to the Lord, the priest shall assess it: whether good or bad, as the priest assesses it, so it shall stand. 14 " 'If a man dedicates his house as something holy to the LORD, the priest will judge its quality as good or bad. Whatever value the priest then sets, so it will remain.
15 And if the one who consecrates the house wishes to redeem it, one-fifth shall be added to its assessed value, and it shall revert to the original owner. 15 If the man who dedicates his house redeems it, he must add a fifth to its value, and the house will again become his.
16 If a person consecrates to the Lord any inherited landholding, its assessment shall be in accordance with its seed requirements: fifty shekels of silver to a homer of barley seed. 16 " 'If a man dedicates to the LORD part of his family land, its value is to be set according to the amount of seed required for it--fifty shekels of silver to a homer of barley seed.
17 If the person consecrates the field as of the year of jubilee, that assessment shall stand; 17 If he dedicates his field during the Year of Jubilee, the value that has been set remains.
18 but if the field is consecrated after the jubilee, the priest shall compute the price for it according to the years that remain until the year of jubilee, and the assessment shall be reduced. 18 But if he dedicates his field after the Jubilee, the priest will determine the value according to the number of years that remain until the next Year of Jubilee, and its set value will be reduced.
19 And if the one who consecrates the field wishes to redeem it, then one-fifth shall be added to its assessed value, and it shall revert to the original owner; 19 If the man who dedicates the field wishes to redeem it, he must add a fifth to its value, and the field will again become his.
20 but if the field is not redeemed, or if it has been sold to someone else, it shall no longer be redeemable. 20 If, however, he does not redeem the field, or if he has sold it to someone else, it can never be redeemed.
21 But when the field is released in the jubilee, it shall be holy to the Lord as a devoted field; it becomes the priest's holding. 21 When the field is released in the Jubilee, it will become holy, like a field devoted to the LORD; it will become the property of the priests.
22 If someone consecrates to the Lord a field that has been purchased, which is not a part of the inherited landholding, 22 " 'If a man dedicates to the LORD a field he has bought, which is not part of his family land,
23 the priest shall compute for it the proportionate assessment up to the year of jubilee, and the assessment shall be paid as of that day, a sacred donation to the Lord. 23 the priest will determine its value up to the Year of Jubilee, and the man must pay its value on that day as something holy to the LORD.
24 In the year of jubilee the field shall return to the one from whom it was bought, whose holding the land is. 24 In the Year of Jubilee the field will revert to the person from whom he bought it, the one whose land it was.
25 All assessments shall be by the sanctuary shekel: twenty gerahs shall make a shekel. 25 Every value is to be set according to the sanctuary shekel, twenty gerahs to the shekel.
26 A firstling of animals, however, which as a firstling belongs to the Lord, cannot be consecrated by anyone; whether ox or sheep, it is the Lord's. 26 " 'No one, however, may dedicate the firstborn of an animal, since the firstborn already belongs to the LORD; whether an ox or a sheep, it is the LORD's.
27 If it is an unclean animal, it shall be ransomed at its assessment, with one-fifth added; if it is not redeemed, it shall be sold at its assessment. 27 If it is one of the unclean animals, he may buy it back at its set value, adding a fifth of the value to it. If he does not redeem it, it is to be sold at its set value.
28 Nothing that a person owns that has been devoted to destruction for the Lord, be it human or animal, or inherited landholding, may be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy to the Lord. 28 " 'But nothing that a man owns and devotes to the LORD--whether man or animal or family land--may be sold or redeemed; everything so devoted is most holy to the LORD.
29 No human beings who have been devoted to destruction can be ransomed; they shall be put to death. 29 " 'No person devoted to destruction may be ransomed; he must be put to death.
30 All tithes from the land, whether the seed from the ground or the fruit from the tree, are the Lord's; they are holy to the Lord. 30 " 'A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD.
31 If persons wish to redeem any of their tithes, they must add one-fifth to them. 31 If a man redeems any of his tithe, he must add a fifth of the value to it.
32 All tithes of herd and flock, every tenth one that passes under the shepherd's staff, shall be holy to the Lord. 32 The entire tithe of the herd and flock--every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd's rod--will be holy to the LORD.
33 Let no one inquire whether it is good or bad, or make substitution for it; if one makes substitution for it, then both it and the substitute shall be holy and cannot be redeemed. 33 He must not pick out the good from the bad or make any substitution. If he does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute become holy and cannot be redeemed.' "
34 These are the commandments that the Lord gave to Moses for the people of Israel on Mount Sinai. 34 These are the commands the LORD gave Moses on Mount Sinai for the Israelites.
