Bible study 117 – Leviticus 27Posted: January 28, 2017
And that was basically the end of Leviticus; this chapter is probably a later addition. It concerns how much money you have to pay the priests to avoid various things being sacrificed, including firstborn animals and children. (Children, of course, wouldn’t actually be sacrificed either way, but you were still supposed to pay up.) Working-age males are most expensive, while infant females are only about one-seventh as much worth.
And if the person is sixty years or over, then the equivalent for a male is fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
