Leviticus Chapter 27

Leviticus 27

1And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

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

3And thy estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even unto sixty years old, even thy estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary.

4And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.

5And if it be from five years old even unto twenty years old, then thy estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

6And if it be from a 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.

7And if it be from sixty years old and above; if it be a male, then thy estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels.

8But if he be poorer 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.

9And if it be a beast, whereof men bring an offering unto the LORD, all that any man giveth of such unto the LORD shall be holy.

10He 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 holy.

11And if it be any unclean beast, of which they do not offer a sacrifice unto the LORD, then he shall present the beast before the priest:

12And the priest shall value it, whether it be good or bad: as thou valuest it, who art the priest, so shall it be.

13But if he will at all redeem it, then he shall add a fifth part thereof unto thy estimation.

14And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy unto the LORD, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it be good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand.

15And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be his.

16And 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 homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver.

17If he sanctify his field from the year of jubile, according to thy estimation it shall stand.

18But if he sanctify his field after the jubile, then the priest shall reckon unto him the money according to the years that remain, even unto the year of the jubile, and it shall be abated from thy estimation.

19And if he that sanctified the field will in any wise redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of thy estimation unto it, and it shall be assured to him.

20And if he will not redeem the field, or if he have sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more.

21But the field, when it goeth out in the jubile, shall be holy unto the LORD, as a field devoted; the possession thereof shall be the priest’s.

22And if a man sanctify unto the LORD a field which he hath bought, which is not of the fields of his possession;

23Then the priest shall reckon unto him the worth of thy estimation, even unto the year of the jubile: and he shall give thine estimation in that day, as a holy thing unto the LORD.

24In the year of the jubile the field shall return unto him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land did belong.

25And all thy estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.

26Only 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 LORD’s.

27And if it be of an unclean beast, then he shall redeem it according to thine estimation, and shall add a fifth part of it thereto: or if it be not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to thy estimation.

28Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.

29None devoted, which shall be devoted of men, shall be redeemed; but shall surely be put to death.

30And 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 unto the LORD.

31And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.

32And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.

33He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.

34These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

  1. The Israelites were required to give or dedicate certain things to the Lord and to his service; the firstfruites of their harvests, firstborn animals, their firstborn sons, a tithe of their increase. Many wished to go beyond this and dedicate themselves or another faimly member, additional animals, a house, or a field to God. Some people made rash or unrealistic vows. To urge them to think about it first, a 20 percent penalty was put on those items purchased back by money. This chapter explains how valuations were to be made and what to do if a donor later wished to buy back what had been donated to God.

  2. v28 ” Every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.”
    You never wasted a minute you spend in the house of GOD. That offering you gave to the work of GOD. You never wasted a time you ever lifted your arms to praise and worship GOD when you didn’t feel like it.( awesome teaching on praise last nite)
    You never wasted a night you gave to choir practice, outreach, abible study, ect…
    GOD is bottling all this up. HE knows what your doing for HIM. All your teasire, time, and talent.
    Your devotion is never wasted when we lay it at JESUS feet.
    Just as Pastor taught last nite about the tithe and offerings. When we give our first Frits to The Lord satan knows he can’t have it nor man. Therefore we are blessed.!!!
    The first fruits belong are holy because they belong to the LORD, and HE expects it back.
    There is a penalty to pay if we are not honest.

  3. 30And 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 unto the LORD.

    So many times we hold back. We are called to tithe on time, tallent, amd treasure. When speaking with a friend I mentioned how I do this.. I also mentioned how if a s a church if we did this there would not be room for all that would be brought in. I told him even with gift cards and food stamps that I could see where that is increase and there would be need of tithing. When he asked how, I told him, the church makes cookies for visitors, why not buy them and make them, that would have time ( cooking), talent (cooking them without burning them), and treasure (money alloted for your house spent for the church), if he were to buy them and make them for the church.

    Many times a negative look is taken when ministry mentions giving, but it really is for us, and our benifit.

  4. IT IS THE LORD

    30 And 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 unto the LORD.

    When we consider the words spoken by the Lord we find that no matter the resource of the increase, the tithe or tenth 10% is the LORD’s. It belongs to him not me. He continues in verse 31 if a man keeps or buys back his tithe he then adds 20% for a total of 30% tithe to be in right financial standing with God.

    WOW! I choose to give GOD his 10% first then give 20% as an offering for the LORD to bless and multiply. It really is our choice. Choose this day to be obedient and serve the LORD.

    Verse 34 says these are the commandments which the LORD commanded.

    iGive

  5. It’s much simpler, just to tythe 10% with offerings and plant multiple seeds as a Wise Man sows the Word in his heart on good ground. Give and it shall be given unto you.

    igive…”Be Church”…Mark A. Ridenour.

  6. 2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When a man shall make a singular vow, the persons shall be for the LORD by thy estimation.

    A man is known for his vow. I am reminded of another scripture that talks about how it is better for you not to make a vow than making a vow and breaking it. We are known by the words of our testimony and how we act towards others.

  7. This chapter makes me think of what Pastor was speaking about Wednesday night. The devil can’t mess with God’s money! What is his the devil can not take away! You rob yourself of a blessing every time you hold back your tithes and you rob the one that gives you those blessings. We tie the hands of God when we hold back and take away that which is his. He doesn’t Need our money; he just wants to know if we trust him.

  8. 30And 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 unto the LORD.

    Great principle established in the beginning of the Word and carried through to many generations.

  9. This chapter illustrates direction. The Lord provided very clear direction to the children of Israel, just as we also can find guidance in his Word if we want it. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  10. 30And 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 unto the LORD.

    34These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

  11. vs 30Ten percent of everything you harvest is holy and belongs to me, whether it grows in your fields or on your fruit trees.CEV
    Give of your time, talent, treasure and any increase.

  12. The beginning of verses 30-33 in the Message version read….”A tenth of the land’s produce, whether grain from the ground or fruit from the trees, is God’s. It is holy to God.” What belongs to God is God’s, this chapter is pretty clear.
