Leviticus 27:21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 but at the jubilee it shall be released as sacred[a] to the Lord; like a field that is put under the ban, it shall become priestly property.


  1. 27:21 Released as sacred: the dedication changes the ownership of the land. It now belongs to the sanctuary. It returns to the sanctuary’s possession after leasing it out (v. 20). Presumably if the land remained in the sanctuary’s possession until the jubilee, and it was not redeemed, the land would belong permanently to the sanctuary and priests.
