FREE Catholic Classes
1 Yahweh spoke to Moses and said:
5 "between five and twenty years, a boy will be valued at twenty shekels, a girl at ten shekels;
6 "between one month and five years, a boy will be valued at five silver shekels, a girl at three silver shekels;
8 "If the person who made the vow cannot meet this valuation, he will present the person concerned to the priest, and the priest will set a value proportionate to the resources of the person who made the vow.
11 In the case of an unclean animal unsuitable for offering to Yahweh, whatever it may be, it will be presented to the priest
17 "If he consecrates the field during the jubilee year, he will abide by this valuation.
22 "If he consecrates to Yahweh a field which he has bought, but which is not part of his ancestral property,
27 But if it is an unclean animal, it may be redeemed at the valuation price with one-fifth added; if the animal is not redeemed, it will be sold at the valuation price.
28 "Nothing, however, that someone vows unconditionally to Yahweh may be redeemed, nothing he possesses, be it a human being or animal or field of his ancestral property. What is vowed unconditionally is especially holy and belongs to Yahweh.
29 A human being vowed unconditionally cannot be redeemed but will be put to death.
30 "All tithes on land, levied on the produce of the soil or on the fruit of trees, belong to Yahweh; they are consecrated to Yahweh.
31 If anyone wishes to redeem part of his tithe, he will add one-fifth to its value.
