25:1 Yahweh spoke to Moses in Mount Sinai, saying,
25:3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in the fruits of it;
25:5 That which grows of itself of your harvest you shall not reap, and the grapes of your undressed vine you shall not gather: it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land.
25:8 You shall number seven Sabbaths of years to you, seven times seven years; and there shall be to you the days of seven Sabbaths of years, even forty-nine years.
25:10 You shall make the fiftieth year holy, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants of it: it shall be a jubilee to you; and you shall return every man to his possession, and you shall return every man to his family.
25:11 A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be to you: you shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it of the undressed vines.
25:12 For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you: you shall eat the increase of it out of the field.
25:13 In this year of jubilee you shall return every man to his possession.
25:14 If you sell anything to your neighbor, or buy of your neighbor`s hand, you shall not wrong one another.
25:16 According to the length of the years you shall increase the price of it, and according to the shortness of the years you shall diminish the price of it; for the number of the crops does he sell to you.
25:20 If you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase;
25:22 You shall sow the eighth year, and eat of the fruits, the old store; until the ninth year, until its fruits come in, you shall eat the old store.
25:25 If your brother be grew poor, and sell some of his possession, then shall his kinsman who is next to him come, and shall redeem that which his brother has sold.
25:26 If a man have no one to redeem it, and he be grew rich and find sufficient to redeem it;
25:27 then let him reckon the years of the sale of it, and restore the surplus to the man to whom he sold it; and he shall return to his possession.
25:28 But if he isn`t able to get it back for himself, then that which he has sold shall remain in the hand of him who has bought it until the year of jubilee: and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return to his possession.
25:30 If it isn`t redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be made sure in perpetuity to him who bought it, throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee.
25:32 Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.
25:33 If one of the Levites redeem, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel.
25:34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.
25:36 Take no interest of him or increase, but fear your God; that your brother may live with you.
25:37 You shall not give him your money on interest, nor give him your victuals for increase.
25:39 If your brother has grown poor with you, and sell himself to you; you shall not make him to serve as a bond-servant.
25:40 As a hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you; he shall serve with you to the year of jubilee:
25:41 then shall he go out from you, he and his children with him, and shall return to his own family, and to the possession of his fathers shall he return.
25:42 For they are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondservants.
25:45 Moreover of the children of the strangers who sojourn among you, of them shall you buy, and of their families who are with you, which they have conceived in your land: and they shall be your possession.
25:46 You shall make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall you take your bondservants forever: but over your brothers the children of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with rigor.
25:47 If a stranger or sojourner with you has grown rich, and your brother has grown poor beside him, and sell himself to the stranger [or] sojourner with you, or to the stock of the stranger`s family;
25:48 after that he is sold he may be redeemed: one of his brothers may redeem him;
25:50 He shall reckon with him who bought him from the year that he sold himself to him to the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale shall be according to the number of years; according to the time of a hired servant shall he be with him.
25:51 If there be yet many years, according to them he shall give back the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.
25:52 If there remain but few years to the year of jubilee, then he shall reckon with him; according to his years shall he give back the price of his redemption.
25:53 As a servant hired year by year shall he be with him: he shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight.
25:54 If he isn`t redeemed by these [means], then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, he, and his children with him.
