For the rubber flex hoses coming off the axle to the calipers (the most common failure point because they flex every time you make a turn at front, plus all four flex as the axles move up and down hitting bumps) probably about $125-200 for one, additional $50-100 each for additional ones (there is one for each end of each axle on the vehicle) if done at same time.

If you mean the metal brake lines, probably about $150-250 for a front or rear line (including the flex line above) or $200-250 for the line running along the frame from the brake cylinder (in engine compartment) to the rear axle. Probably around $1000 ballpark to replace ALL lines from brake fluid reservoir to the wheels. Say probably about 25-50% more if done at a dealer.

If having all lines replaced be sure draining and replacement of the brake fluid with new and replacing the bushing where the vacuumm line goes into the power brake booster is included in the deal - basically near zero additional work and about $10 worth of parts, but if you need all the lines replaced car is probably old enough to need new brake fluid and vacuum line bushing too.
