 27:13
27:11 If it involves any unfit animal that cannot be offered as a sacrifice to God, [the owner] shall present the animal to the priest.
Ve'im kol-behemah tme'ah asher lo-yakrivu mimenah korban l'Adonay vehe'emid et-habehemah lifney hakohen.
27:12 The priest shall set the endowment value according to [the animal's] good and bad qualities, and its endowment valuation shall be that which is determined by the priest.
Vehe'erich hakohen otah beyn tov uveyn ra ke'erkecha hakohen ken yihyeh.
27:13 If [the owner] wishes to redeem it, he must add 20% to its endowment value.
Ve'im-ga'ol yig'alenah veyasaf chamishito al-erkecha.



Commentary:

unfit
  Because of a blemish, as in Leviticus 20:17-22 (Sifra; Rashi). Literally, 'unclean.'

according to ... good and bad qualities
  (cf. Sifra). Literally, 'whether good or bad.' Or, 'whether it is advantageous or disadvantageous' for the Temple (Ralbag).
