People gifted things to the Temple and they could redeem – buy back – their gift. A priest would evaluate the item, a fee was added, and the item was repurchased. However, when people gifted themselves or another person to the Temple then on the basis of their sex and age, the Torah legislates a value. These verses are most jarring: “…from five year old to twenty the value shall be twenty shekels for the male, and for the female ten…” Abrabarnel focuses on the absence of the priest’s estimate and highlights the uniform value. Within a specific age bracket, all males, and all females, have the same value. Although not blind to age and sex, the value set by the Torah was blind to the person’s income, health, net-worth, education etc with each individual given the same valuation.
