Redemption of Vowed Fields

27:16 “ ‘If a man consecrates to the Lord some of his own landed property, the conversion value must be calculated in accordance with the amount of seed needed to sow it,17 a homer of barley seed being priced at fifty shekels of silver.18 27:17 If he consecrates his field in the jubilee year,19 the conversion value will stand, 27:18 but if20 he consecrates his field after the jubilee, the priest will calculate the price21 for him according to the years that are left until the next jubilee year, and it will be deducted from the conversion value. 27:19 If, however, the one who consecrated the field redeems it,22 he must add to it one fifth of the conversion price23 and it will belong to him.24 27:20 If he does not redeem the field, but sells25 the field to someone else, he may never redeem it. 27:21 When it reverts26 in the jubilee, the field will be holy to the Lord like a permanently dedicated field;27 it will become the priest’s property.28

27:22 “ ‘If he consecrates to the Lord a field he has purchased,29 which is not part of his own landed property, 27:23 the priest will calculate for him the amount of its conversion value until the jubilee year, and he must pay30 the conversion value on that jubilee day as something that is holy to the Lord. 27:24 In the jubilee year the field will return to the one from whom he bought it, the one to whom it belongs as landed property. 27:25 Every conversion value must be calculated by the standard of the sanctuary shekel;31 twenty gerahs to the shekel.
