Chapter 27 of the Book Of Leviticus

Read the Douay-Rheims Latin Vulgate Bible everyday from Genesis to Apocalypse. The reading is currently at:
Leviticus 27:21-34

21 For when the day of jubilee cometh, it shall be sanctified to the Lord, and as a possession consecrated, pertaineth to the right of the priests. 22 If a field that was bought, and not of a man's ancestors' possession, be sanctified to the Lord, 23 The priest shall reckon the price according to the number of years: unto the jubilee: and he that had vowed, shall give that to the Lord. 24 But in the jubilee, it shall return to the former owner, who had sold it, and had it in the lot of his possession. 25 All estimation shall be made according to the side of the sanctuary. A sicle hath twenty obols.

26 The firstborn, which belong to the Lord, no man may sanctify and vow: whether it be bullock, or sheep, they are the Lord's. 27 And if it be an unclean beast, he that offereth it shall redeem it, according to thy estimation, and shall add the fifth part of the price. If he will not redeem it, it shall be sold to another for how much soever it was estimated by thee. 28 Any thing that is devoted to the Lord, whether it be man, or beast, or field, shall not be sold, neither may it be redeemed. Whatsoever is once consecrated shall be holy of holies to the Lord. 29 And any consecration that is offered by man, shall not be redeemed, but dying shall die. 30 All tithes of the land, whether of corn, or of the fruits of trees, are the Lord's, and are sanctified to him.

31 And if any man will redeem his tithes, he shall add the fifth part of them. 32 Of all the tithes of oxen, and sheep, and goats, that pass under the shepherd's rod, every tenth that cometh shall be sanctified to the Lord. 33 It shall not be chosen neither good nor bad, neither shall it be changed for another. If any man change it: both that which was changed, and that for which it was changed, shall be sanctified to the Lord, and shall not be redeemed. 34 These are the precepts which the Lord commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
