Sacred Donations — Valued Dedicated Property to the LORD — Old Testament Times’ Real Estate Leviticus #3

Why 20%?

Rules about Valuations

Leviticus 27

22Now if a man consecrates to the LORD a field he has purchased, which is not a part of his own property,
23then the priest shall calculate for him the value up to the Year of Jubilee, and the man shall pay the assessed value on that day as a sacred offering to the LORD.
24In the Year of Jubilee the field shall return to the one from whom it was bought—the original owner of the land.
25Every valuation will be according to the sanctuary shekel, twenty gerahs to the shekel.
