Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Leviticus 27:28-29

_ _ no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the Lord of all that he hath, ... shall be sold or redeemed — This relates to vows of the most solemn kind — the devotee accompanying his vow with a solemn imprecation on himself not to fail in accomplishing his declared purpose.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Leviticus 27:26-34.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Leviticus 27:28

No devoted thing — That is, nothing which is absolutely devoted to God with a curse upon themselves or others, if they disposed not of it according to their vow; as the Hebrew word implies. Most holy — That is, only to be touched or employed by the priests, and by no other persons; no not by their own families, for that was the state of the most holy things.
