27:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a a singular vow, the persons [shall be] for the LORD by b thy estimation.

    (a) As of his son or daughter.
    (b) Who art the priest.
27:3 And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty c shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.
    (c) Read the value of the shekel in (Ex 30:13).
27:6 And if [it be] from a d month old even unto five years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female thy estimation [shall be] three shekels of silver.
    (d) He speaks of those vows by which the fathers dedicated their children to God who were not of such force; but they might be redeemed from them.
27:8 But if he be poorer e than thy estimation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to his ability that vowed shall the priest value him.
    (e) If he is not able to pay according to your estimate.
27:9 And if [it be] a f beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all that [any man] giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy. 27:10 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 g holy.
    (g) That is, consecrate to the Lord.

27:16 And if a man shall sanctify unto the LORD [some part] of a field of his possession, then thy estimation shall be according to the seed thereof: an i homer of barley seed [shall be valued] at fifty shekels of silver.

    (i) Homer is a measure containing ten ephahs, read of an ephah in (Ex 16:16,36).
27:20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have k sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.
    (k) For their own necessity or godly uses.
27:21 But the field, when it goeth out in the jubile, shall be l holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest's. 27:23 Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation, [even] unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give m thine estimation in that day, [as] a holy thing unto the LORD.
    (m) The priests evaluation.
27:26 Only the firstling of the beasts, which should be the LORD'S firstling, no man shall sanctify it; whether [it be] ox, or sheep: it [is] the n LORD'S.
    (n) It was the Lord's already.
27:29 None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; [but] shall surely be o put to death.
    (o) It shall remain without redemption.
27:31 And if a man will at all redeem [ought] of his tithes, he shall add thereto the p fifth [part] thereof.
    (p) Besides the value of the thing itself.
27:32 And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, [even] of whatsoever passeth under the q rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
    (q) All that which is numbered: that is, every tenth as he falls by tale without exception or respect.
