Nidah 48

1) [line 6] ERCHIN
Erech (= endowment valuation) refers to a special form of vow. If a person declares, "Erech Ploni Alay" ("I accept upon myself to give the endowment value of so and so to Hekdesh"), he must give the specific value that the Torah designates for the person's gender and age group as stated in Vayikra 27. It makes no difference at all whether the person is healthy or sick, strong or weak.
