Notwithstanding no devoted thing, that a man shall devote unto the LORD of all that he hath, both of man and beast, and of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy unto the LORD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

27:28 devoted thing. A thing “devoted” could not be redeemed with money or anything else. It was considered “under the ban.” The same word is translated “accursed,” as in the case of the city of Jericho (Joshua 6:17). Everything “devoted” or “accursed” thenceforth belonged only to God, whether for destruction or for His use.
