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.10 They 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.11 If 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,12 who will judge its quality as good or bad. Whatever value the priest then sets, that is what it will be.13 If 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.15 If 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 homer[a] of barley seed.17 If they dedicate a field during the Year of Jubilee, the value that has been set remains.18 But 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.19 If 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.20 If, however, they do not redeem the field, or if they have sold it to someone else, it can never be redeemed.21 When 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,23 the 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.24 In the Year of Jubilee the field will revert to the person from whom it was bought, the one whose land it was.25 Every value is to be set according to the sanctuary shekel, twenty gerahs to the shekel.
