1 And יהוה spake unto Moses (Mosheh), saying,
2 “Speak unto the children of Yisrael, and say unto them: ‘When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for יהוה by your estimation.
3 And your estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even your estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
4 And if it be a female, then your estimation shall be thirty shekels.
5 And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then your estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
6 And if it be from a month old even unto five years old, then your estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female your estimation shall be three shekels of silver.
7 And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then your estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.
8 But if he be poorer than your estimation, then he shall present himself before the priest (kohen), and the priest (kohen) shall value him; according to his ability that vowed shall the priest (kohen) value him.
9 And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto יהוה, all that any man giveth of such unto יהוה shall be holy.
10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good; and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then it and the exchange thereof shall be holy.
11 And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto יהוה, then he shall present the beast before the priest (kohen);
12 And the priest (kohen) shall value it, whether it be good or bad; as you valuest it, who art the priest (kohen), so shall it be.
13 But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof unto your estimation.
14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto יהוה, then the priest (kohen) shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest (kohen) shall estimate it, so shall it stand.
15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it shall be his.
16 And if a man shall sanctify unto יהוה some part of a field of his possession, then your estimation shall be according to the seed thereof. A homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.
17 If he sanctifies his field from the year of Jubilee (Yovel), according to your estimation it shall stand.
18 But if he sanctifies his field after the Jubilee (Yovel), then the priest (kohen) shall reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain, even unto the year of the Jubilee (Yovel), and it shall be abated from your estimation.
19 And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him.
20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.
21 But the field, when it goeth out in the Jubilee (Yovel), shall be holy unto יהוה, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest (kohen)’s.
22 And if a man sanctifies unto יהוה a field which he hath bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;
23 Then the priest (kohen) shall reckon unto him the worth of your estimation, even unto the year of the Jubilee (Yovel); and he shall give your estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto יהוה.
24 In the year of the Jubilee (Yovel) the
field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did belong.
25 And all your estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.
26 Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be יהוה’s firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether it be ox, or sheep; it is יהוה’s.
27 And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to your estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto; or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your estimation.
28 Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto יהוה of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most holy unto יהוה.
29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.
30 And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is יהוה’s; it is holy unto יהוה.
31 And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto יהוה.
33 He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it; and if he changes it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.’”
34 These are the commandments, which יהוה commanded Moses (Mosheh) for the children of Yisrael in Mount Sinai.
