Leviticus 27

Leviticus 27: In a very systematic and thorough fashion, the chapter analyzes the various kinds of things which men may promise to dedicate to God. Regulations appropriate to each are then specified and vows of people, animals, houses, inheritances and land are described in full. There is also an analysis of what happens when you break a dedication or vow. God anticipates that the vows which are made at one moment in time may be regretted later, and the person making the offer will attempt, in one way or another, to renege or replace one offering for another. False vow’s which are basically promises or dedications that are not kept. It may have been a vow made sincerely at the time, but was forgotten, regretted, or for some reason not fulfilled. It may even have been a vow which was never intended to be kept, even when it was made. Leviticus 27 warns against the making of false vows, each vow which was made should be kept no matter the circumstance. When you make a vow, dedication or promise to the Lord you shall not delay to pay it, for it would be sin in you, and your God will surely require that you fulfill the dedication.

There were also laws on how to properly harvest one’s crops. God said that there should be a portion of the crops given to those who are poor and hungry. The rich and powerful should not have special privileges that give them advantages over everyone else. The people of Israel were instructed by God to respect their elders, respect the house of the Lord, and to refrain from turning to mediums. God also said to show respect to nonbelievers as well as believers. This was aimed at the Israelites that were living in Egypt at the time. The chapter ends with a summary and a reiteration that all of the Lord’s commands and rules should be followed. Those who chose to disobey would suffer the consequences. The guideline that I personally disobeyed without knowing is Leviticus 19:28, Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD. I have a few tattoo’s which I now need to ask forgiveness for betraying the Lord without knowing. So do you have tattoos? How do you feel about this scripture? Do you feel that like other guidelines laid out in this chapter this verse...
