1 Jehovah spoke to Moses:
2 »Give the following regulations for the people of Israel: When any of you have been given to Jehovah in fulfillment of a special vow, you may be set free by the payment of the following sums of money,
3 »This is according to the official standard: adult male, twenty to sixty years old: fifty pieces of silver, adult female: thirty pieces of silver, young male, five to twenty years old: twenty pieces of silver, young female: ten pieces of silver, infant male under five: five pieces of silver, infant female: three pieces of silver, male above sixty years of age: fifteen pieces of silver, female above sixty: ten pieces of silver.
4 »If it is a woman, give twelve ounces.
5 »For a boy from five to twenty years old, give eight ounces and for a girl give four ounces.
6 »For a boy from one month to five years old, give two ounces of silver and for a girl give about one ounce.
7 For a man sixty years or over, give six ounces and for a woman give four ounces.
8 »The person who is too poor to pay the required amount must stand in front of the priest. The priest will determine the amount based on what the person can afford.
9 »If the vow is to give the kind of animal that people offer to Jehovah, it will be considered holy.
10 »Do not exchange or substitute animals, a good one for a bad one or a bad one for a good one. If you do exchange one animal for another, then both animals will be holy.
11 »If it is an unclean animal that cannot be brought to Jehovah as an offering, bring it in front of the priest.
12 »The priest will determine what its value is. The value will be whatever the priest decides.
13 »If you want to buy it back, you must pay its full value plus one-fifth more.
14 »If you give your house to Jehovah as something holy, the priest will determine what its value is. The value will be whatever the priest decides.
15 »If you want to buy it back, you must pay its full value plus one-fifth more.
16 »If a person gives part of a field to Jehovah as something holy, its value will be based on the seed planted on it. Ground planted with two quarts of barley will be worth twenty ounces of silver.
17 »If you give your field in the jubilee year, it will have its full value.
18 »Should you give the field after the jubilee year, the priest will estimate its value based on the number of years left until the next jubilee year.
19 »If you want to buy it back, you must pay its full value plus one-fifth more.
20 »If you do not buy it back and it is sold to someone else, it may not be redeemed.
21 »When the field is released in the jubilee year, it will be holy like a field claimed by Jehovah. It will become the property of the priest.
22 »You may give a field you bought, not one that was a part of your family property, to Jehovah as something holy.
23 »The priest must figure out the field's value until the jubilee year. You will pay its value on that day as something holy, belonging to Jehovah.
24 »In the jubilee year the field will go back to the person from whom it was bought, to whom it belongs as family property.
25 »All values will be set using the standard weight of the holy place.
26 »A firstborn animal already belongs to Jehovah because it was born first. Therefore, it cannot be set apart as holy. Whether it is a bull or a sheep, it belongs to Jehovah.
27 »If it is an unclean animal it must be bought back. The payment will be its full value plus one-fifth more. If it is not bought back, it must be sold at the value given it.
28 »However, everything dedicated to Jehovah for destruction, a person, an animal, or a field that belongs to you, must not be sold or bought back. Everything dedicated in that way is very holy. It belongs to Jehovah.
29 »People dedicated this way may not be bought back. They must be put to death.
30 »One-tenth of what comes from the land, whether grain or fruit, is holy and belongs to Jehovah.
31 »If you buy back any part of it, you must add one-fifth more to it.
32 »Every tenth head of cattle or sheep that you counted is holy and belongs to Jehovah.
33 »You must not look to see if it is good or bad or exchange it. If you do exchange it, both the first animal and its substitute will be holy. They may not be bought back.«
34 These are the commandments Jehovah gave Moses on Mount Sinai for the Israelites.
