Leviticus 27:13 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Shall add a fifth part - This was probably intended to prevent rash vows and covetous redemptions.

From this neglect Leviticus has suffered most. Yet for many reasons it is worthy of close attention; it is the deliberate expression of the priestly mind of Israel at its best, and it thus forms a welcome foil to the unattractive
