Redemption of Vowed People
27:1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 27:2 “Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When a man makes a special votive offering 1 based on the conversion value of persons to the Lord, 2 27:3 the conversion value of the male 3 from twenty years old up to sixty years old 4 is fifty shekels by the standard of the sanctuary shekel. 5 27:4 If the person is a female, the conversion value is thirty shekels. 27:5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, the conversion value of the male is twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 27:6 If the person is one month old up to five years old, the conversion value of the male is five shekels of silver, 6 and for the female the conversion value is three shekels of silver. 27:7 If the person is from sixty years old and older, if he is a male the conversion value is fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 27:8 If he is too poor to pay the conversion value, he must stand the person before the priest and the priest will establish his conversion value; 7 according to what the man who made the vow can afford, 8 the priest will establish his conversion value.
