He 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.
Leviticus 27:15-33
15
But if the one who consecrated his house redeems [it], he must add a fifth to the valuation price, and it will be his.
16
"If a man consecrates to the LORD any part of a field that he possesses, your valuation will be proportional to the seed needed to sow it, at the rate of 50 silver shekels for [every] five bushels of barley seed.
17
If he consecrates his field during the Year of Jubilee, the price will stand according to your valuation.
18
But if he consecrates his field after the Jubilee, the priest will calculate the price for him in proportion to the years left until the [next] Year of Jubilee, so that your valuation will be reduced.
19
If the one who consecrated the field decides to redeem it, he must add a fifth to the valuation price, and the field will transfer back to him.
20
But if he does not redeem the field or if he has sold it to another man, it is no longer redeemable.
21
When the field is released in the Jubilee, it will be holy to the LORD like a field permanently set apart; it becomes the priest's property.
22
"If a person consecrates to the LORD a field he has purchased that is not part of his inherited landholding,
23
then the priest will calculate for him the amount of the valuation up to the Year of Jubilee, and the person will pay the valuation on that day as a holy offering to the LORD.
24
In the Year of Jubilee the field will return to the one he bought it from, the original owner.
25
All your valuations will be [measured] by the standard sanctuary shekel, 20 gerahs to the shekel.
26
"But no one can consecrate a firstborn of the livestock, whether an animal from the herd or flock, to the LORD, because a firstborn [already] belongs to the LORD.
27
If it is one of the unclean livestock, it must be ransomed according to your valuation by adding a fifth of its value to it. If it is not redeemed, it can be sold according to your valuation.
28
"Nothing that a man permanently sets apart to the LORD from all he owns, whether a person, an animal, or his inherited landholding, can be sold or redeemed; everything set apart is especially holy to the LORD.
29
No person who has been set apart [for destruction] is to be ransomed; he must be put to death.
30
"Every tenth of the land's produce, grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD.
31
If a man decides to redeem any part of this tenth, he must add one-fifth to its value.
32
Every tenth animal from the herd or flock, which passes under the [shepherd's] rod, will be holy to the LORD.
33
He is not to inspect whether it is good or bad, and he is not to make a substitution for it. But if he does make a substitution, both the animal and its substitute will be holy; they cannot be redeemed."
James 1:8
An indecisive man is unstable in all his ways.
