利未记 27:1-34

许愿的条例

1耶和华对摩西说: 2“你把以下条例告诉以色列人。

“如果有人许下特别的愿,以付身价的方式奉献一个人给耶和华,就要为被奉献者估定身价。 3以圣所的秤为准,要为二十至六十岁的男子估价五百五十克银子, 4女子则估价三百三十克银子; 5五至二十岁的男子估价二百二十克银子,女子则估价一百一十克银子; 6满月至五岁的男子估价五十五克银子,女子则估价三十三克银子; 7六十岁以上的男子估价一百六十五克银子,女子则估价一百一十克银子。 8如果许愿的人因贫穷而负担不起,就要把他带到祭司面前,祭司要按他的能力另行估价。

9“如果有人许愿献牲畜给耶和华作供物,所献的牲畜就会成为圣物。 10不可更换所献的牲畜,不可以坏换好,也不可以好换坏。如果更换,两头牲畜都会成为圣物。 11如果许愿献的是不洁净的牲畜,即不能献给耶和华作供物的牲畜,那人就要把牲畜带到祭司面前, 12由祭司评定它的好坏,祭司估价多少就是多少。 13那人如果有意赎回,必须支付祭司估定的价值,再加付五分之一。

14“如果有人把房子献给耶和华,祭司就要评定房子的好坏,祭司估价多少就是多少。 15那人如果想赎回房子,必须支付祭司估定的价值,再加付五分之一,房子便仍归他所有。

16“如果有人把自己继承的部分土地献给耶和华,祭司就要按照土地的播种量来估价,撒二十公斤大麦种子的土地值五百五十克银子。 17如果有人在禧年奉献土地,所估的价便是定价。 18如果是在禧年以后献的,祭司要按照距下个禧年的年数来估价,估价要逐年减低。 19如果那人想赎回所献的土地,要在估价的基础上加付五分之一,土地便仍归他所有。 20他如果没有赎回土地,而是卖给别人,便再也不能赎回。 21到了禧年,那土地要像永远献给耶和华的土地一样归耶和华,成为祭司的产业。

22“如果献给耶和华的土地不是自己的产业,而是买来的, 23祭司就要按照距下个禧年的年数来估价。那人要当天付清地价,地价归耶和华。 24到了禧年,他要把所献的土地归还原主。 25所有价银的称量要以圣所的秤为准,即二十季拉为一舍客勒27:25 一舍客勒约合十一克。

26“洁净牲畜的头胎,无论是牛是羊,已经属于耶和华,任何人不可再把它献给耶和华。 27如果是不洁净牲畜的头胎,他可以在祭司的估价基础上,加付五分之一把它赎回;如果不赎回,就要按估价把它卖掉。 28凡永远献上的27:28 永远献上的”指完全献给耶和华、永不可赎回的人或物,一般要被毁灭。此律多适用于战争中被攻占的城邑或战俘。,不论是人、牲畜或是田产,都不可卖掉,也不可赎回,因为这一切都属于耶和华,是至圣的。 29凡永远献上的人不可被赎回,必须被处死。

30“土地的所有出产中,不论是谷物还是树上的果实,十分之一属于耶和华,是圣物。 31如果有人想从那十分之一中赎回一部分,他要加付估价的五分之一。 32至于牛羊,要让它们从牧人的杖下经过,每数十只,第十只属于耶和华,是圣物。 33不论是好是坏,不可挑拣,不可更换。如果更换,两只都要归耶和华,不可赎回。”

34以上是耶和华在西奈山上借摩西以色列人颁布的诫命。

Leviticus 27:1-34

Redeeming what is the Lord’s

1The Lord said to Moses, 2‘Speak to the Israelites and say to them: “If anyone makes a special vow to dedicate a person to the Lord by giving the equivalent value, 3set the value of a male between the ages of twenty and sixty at fifty shekels27:3 That is, about 575 grams; also in verse 16 of silver, according to the sanctuary shekel27:3 That is, about 12 grams; also in verse 25; 4for a female, set her value at thirty shekels27:4 That is, about 345 grams; 5for a person between the ages of five and twenty, set the value of a male at twenty shekels27:5 That is, about 230 grams and of a female at ten shekels27:5 That is, about 115 grams; also in verse 7; 6for a person between one month and five years, set the value of a male at five shekels27:6 That is, about 58 grams of silver and that of a female at three shekels27:6 That is, about 35 grams of silver; 7for a person sixty years old or more, set the value of a male at fifteen shekels27:7 That is, about 175 grams and of a female at ten shekels. 8If anyone making the vow is too poor to pay the specified amount, the person being dedicated is to be presented to the priest, who will set the value according to what the one making the vow can afford.

9‘ “If what they vowed is an animal that is acceptable as an offering to the Lord, such an animal given to the Lord becomes holy. 10They must not exchange it or substitute a good one for a bad one, or a bad one for a good one; if they should substitute one animal for another, both it and the substitute become holy. 11If what they 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, 12who will judge its quality as good or bad. Whatever value the priest then sets, that is what it will be. 13If the owner wishes to redeem the animal, a fifth must be added to its value.

14‘ “If anyone dedicates their 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. 15If the one who dedicates their house wishes to redeem it, they must add a fifth to its value, and the house will again become theirs.

16‘ “If anyone dedicates to the Lord part of their family land, its value is to be set according to the amount of seed required for it – fifty shekels of silver to a homer27:16 That is, probably about 135 kilograms of barley seed. 17If they dedicate a field during the Year of Jubilee, the value that has been set remains. 18But if they dedicate a 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. 19If the one who dedicates the field wishes to redeem it, they must add a fifth to its value, and the field will again become theirs. 20If, however, they do not redeem the field, or if they have sold it to someone else, it can never be redeemed. 21When the field is released in the Jubilee, it will become holy, like a field devoted to the Lord; it will become priestly property.

22‘ “If anyone dedicates to the Lord a field they have bought, which is not part of their family land, 23the priest will determine its value up to the Year of Jubilee, and the owner must pay its value on that day as something holy to the Lord. 24In the Year of Jubilee the field will revert to the person from whom it was bought, the one whose land it was. 25Every value is to be set according to the sanctuary shekel, twenty gerahs to the shekel.

26‘ “No-one, however, may dedicate the firstborn of an animal, since the firstborn already belongs to the Lord; whether an ox27:26 The Hebrew word can include both male and female. or a sheep, it is the Lord’s. 27If it is one of the unclean animals, it may be bought back at its set value, adding a fifth of the value to it. If it is not redeemed, it is to be sold at its set value.

28‘ “But nothing that a person owns and devotes27:28 The Hebrew term refers to the irrevocable giving over of things or persons to the Lord. to the Lord – whether a human being or an animal or family land – may be sold or redeemed; everything so devoted is most holy to the Lord.

29‘ “No-one devoted to destruction27:29 The Hebrew term refers to the irrevocable giving over of things or persons to the Lord, often by totally destroying them. may be ransomed; they are to be put to death.

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. 31Whoever would redeem any of their tithe must add a fifth of the value to it. 32Every tithe of the herd and flock – every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd’s rod – will be holy to the Lord. 33No-one may pick out the good from the bad or make any substitution. If anyone does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute become holy and cannot be redeemed.” ’

34These are the commands the Lord gave Moses at Mount Sinai for the Israelites.
