New King James Version
Promise of Blessing and Retribution(A)
26 ‘You shall (B)not make idols for yourselves;
neither a carved image nor a sacred pillar shall you rear up for yourselves;
nor shall you set up an engraved stone in your land, to bow down to it;
for I am the Lord your God.
I am the Lord.
3 (D)‘If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them,
5 (G)Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing;
you shall eat your bread to the full, and (H)dwell in your land safely.
and (L)the sword will not go through your land.
7 You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you.
8 (M)Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight;
your enemies shall fall by the sword before you.
10 You shall eat the (Q)old harvest, and clear out the old because of the new.
12 (S)I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people.
13 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves;
14 ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments,
15 and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant,
16 I also will do this to you:
18 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you (AC)seven times more for your sins.
19 I will (AD)break the pride of your power;
I (AE)will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze.
20 And your (AF)strength shall be spent in vain;
for your (AG)land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.
21 ‘Then, if you walk contrary to Me, and are not willing to obey Me, I will bring on you seven times more plagues, according to your sins.
22 (AH)I will also send wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, destroy your livestock, and make you few in number;
and (AI)your highways shall be desolate.
23 ‘And if (AJ)by these things you are not reformed by Me, but walk contrary to Me,
24 (AK)then I also will walk contrary to you, and I will punish you yet seven times for your sins.
25 And (AL)I will bring a sword against you that will execute the vengeance of the covenant;
when you are gathered together within your cities (AM)I will send pestilence among you;
and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.
27 ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me,
28 then I also will walk contrary to you in fury;
and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.
30 (AQ)I will destroy your high places, cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols;
and My soul shall abhor you.
32 (AU)I will bring the land to desolation, and your enemies who dwell in it shall be astonished at it.
33 (AV)I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you;
your land shall be desolate and your cities waste.
34 (AW)Then the land shall enjoy its sabbaths as long as it lies desolate and you are in your enemies’ land;
then the land shall rest and enjoy its sabbaths.
35 As long as it lies desolate it shall rest—
for the time it did not rest on your (AX)sabbaths when you dwelt in it.
the sound of a shaken leaf shall cause them to flee;
they shall flee as though fleeing from a sword, and they shall fall when no one pursues.
37 (AZ)They shall stumble over one another, as it were before a sword, when no one pursues;
and (BA)you shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
38 You shall (BB)perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
also in their (BD)fathers’ iniquities, which are with them, they shall waste away.
40 ‘But (BE)if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me,
41 and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies;
42 then I will (BI)remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember;
I will (BJ)remember the land.
43 (BK)The land also shall be left empty by them, and will enjoy its sabbaths while it lies desolate without them;
they will accept their guilt, because they (BL)despised My judgments and because their soul abhorred My statutes.
44 Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, (BM)I will not cast them away, nor shall I abhor them, to utterly destroy them and break My covenant with them;
for I am the Lord their God.
I am the Lord.’ ”
Redeeming Persons and Property Dedicated to God
27 Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: (BS)‘When a man [k]consecrates by a vow certain persons to the Lord, according to your [l]valuation, 3 if your valuation is of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old, then your valuation shall be fifty shekels of silver, (BT)according to the shekel of the sanctuary. 4 If it is a female, then your valuation shall be thirty shekels; 5 and if from five years old up to twenty years old, then your valuation for a male shall be twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels; 6 and if from a month old up to five years old, then your valuation for a male shall be five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver; 7 and if from sixty years old and above, if it is a male, then your valuation shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
8 ‘But if he is too poor to pay your valuation, then he shall present himself before the priest, and the priest shall set a value for (BU)him; according to the ability of him who vowed, the priest shall value him.
9 ‘If it is an animal that men may bring as an offering to the Lord, all that anyone gives to the Lord shall be holy. 10 He shall not substitute it or exchange it, good for bad or bad for good; and if he at all exchanges animal for animal, then both it and the one exchanged for it shall be (BV)holy. 11 If it is an unclean animal which they do not offer as a sacrifice to the Lord, then he shall present the animal before the priest; 12 and the priest shall set a value for it, whether it is good or bad; as you, the priest, value it, so it shall be. 13 (BW)But if he wants at all to redeem it, then he must add one-fifth to your valuation.
14 ‘And when a man [m]dedicates his house to be holy to the Lord, then the priest shall set a value for it, whether it is good or bad; as the priest values it, so it shall stand. 15 If he who dedicated it wants to [n]redeem his house, then he must add one-fifth of the money of your valuation to it, and it shall be his.
16 ‘If a man [o]dedicates to the Lord part of a field of his possession, then your valuation shall be according to the seed for it. A homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. 17 If he dedicates his field from the Year of Jubilee, according to your valuation it shall stand. 18 But if he dedicates his field after the Jubilee, then the priest shall (BX)reckon to him the money due according to the years that remain till the Year of Jubilee, and it shall be deducted from your valuation. 19 And if he who dedicates the field ever wishes to redeem it, then he must add one-fifth of the money of your valuation to it, and it shall belong to him. 20 But if he does not want to redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed anymore; 21 but the field, (BY)when it is released in the Jubilee, shall be holy to the Lord, as a (BZ)devoted field; it shall be (CA)the possession of the priest.
22 ‘And if a man dedicates to the Lord a field which he has bought, which is not the field of (CB)his possession, 23 then the priest shall reckon to him the worth of your valuation, up to the Year of Jubilee, and he shall give your valuation on that day as a holy offering to the Lord. 24 (CC)In the Year of Jubilee the field shall return to him from whom it was bought, to the one who owned the land as a possession. 25 And all your valuations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: (CD)twenty gerahs to the shekel.
26 ‘But the (CE)firstborn of the animals, which should be the Lord’s firstborn, no man shall dedicate; whether it is an ox or sheep, it is the Lord’s. 27 And if it is an unclean animal, then he shall redeem it according to your valuation, and (CF)shall add one-fifth to it; or if it is not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your valuation.
28 (CG)‘Nevertheless no [p]devoted offering that a man may devote to the Lord of all that he has, both man and beast, or the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted offering is most holy to the Lord. 29 (CH)No person under the ban, who may become doomed to destruction among men, shall be redeemed, but shall surely be put to death. 30 And (CI)all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord. 31 (CJ)If a man wants at all to redeem any of his tithes, he shall add one-fifth to it. 32 And concerning the tithe of the herd or the flock, of whatever (CK)passes under the rod, the tenth one shall be holy to the Lord. 33 He shall not inquire whether it is good or bad, (CL)nor shall he exchange it; and if he exchanges it at all, then both it and the one exchanged for it shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.’ ”
