 27:21

 27:23
27:21 When the field is then released by the jubilee, it becomes consecrated to God, like a field that has been declared taboo, and it then becomes the hereditary property of the priest.
Vehayah hasadeh betseto vayovel kodesh l'Adonay kisdeh hacherem lakohen tihyeh achuzato.
27:22 Sixth Reading
If the field that one consecrates to God is not his hereditary property but a field he has bought,
Ve'im et-sdeh miknato asher lo misdeh achuzato yakdish l'Adonay.
27:23 the priest shall calculate the proportion of its endowment valuation on the basis of the number of years remaining until the [next] jubilee year. On that day, [anyone] can [redeem it by] giving its endowment valuation as something consecrated to God.
Vechishav-lo hakohen et michsat ha'erkecha ad shnat hayovel venatan et-ha'erkecha bayom hahu kodesh l'Adonay.



Commentary:

taboo
  Cherem in Hebrew. See Leviticus, 27:28, 29. Such taboo property is the property of the priests (Numbers 18:14), as long as it is not dedicated specifically to the Temple.

of the priest
  It is given to the priests serving on the new year of the jubilee (Yad, Arakhin 4:24).
