    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:2

    Habla a los hijos de Israel, y diles: Cuando hubiereis entrado en la tierra que yo os doy, la tierra guardará reposo al SEÑOR.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Leviticus 25:2

    Verse 2. The
    land keep a Sabbath] See this ordinance explained, See the note on "Exod. xxiii. 11". It may be asked here: if it required all the annual produce of the field to support the inhabitants, how could the people be nourished the seventh year, when no produce was received from the fields? To this it may be answered, that God sent his blessing in an especial manner on the sixth year, (see verses 21, 22,) and it brought forth fruit for three years. How astonishing and convincing was this miracle! Could there possibly be any deception here? NO! The miracle speaks for itself, proves the Divine authenticity of the law, and takes every prop and stay from the system that wishes to convict the Mosaic ordinances of imposture. See Exod. xxiii. 11. It is evident from this that the Mosaic law must have had a Divine origin, as no man in his senses, without God's authority, could have made such an ordinance as this; for the sixth year, from its promulgation, would have amply refuted his pretensions to a Divine mission.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. Speak unto the
    children of Israel, and say unto them , etc.] What follows, being what the whole body of the people would be under obligation to observe, and therefore must be delivered to them all, at least to the heads and elders of the people, and by them to the rest: when ye come into the land which I give you ; the land of Canaan, and until they came thither, the following law concerning the sabbatical year could not take place; and as Maimonides says, it was only used in the land of Israel, and no where else, according to this text, and that both before and after the temple was built: then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord ; a rest from tillage, as it is afterwards explained; and this being according to the will of God, when observed would be to his honour and glory, and show that he was the proprietor of the land; and that the Israelites held it under him by this tenure, that every seventh year they should let it rest, which would be for the benefit of the land, and preserve it from being impoverished by continual usage and hereby they might learn to depend on the providence of God, and to observe that all increase is from him; and to consider the straits and difficulties the poor live in continually, as they in this seventh year; and by this means they would be at leisure to have an opportunity of reading the law, as they did at this time, ( Deuteronomy 31:10-13); and of meditating upon it, and of giving themselves up to religious exercises, as well as by it they might be led to the typical use of to look for and expect that sabbatism or rest, which remains for the people of God. And now this law did not take place as soon as they came into the land, for it was to be sown six years, and then was the year of rest; and indeed not till after Joshua had subdued the whole land, which was seven years a doing; nor till they were quite settled, and it was divided among them, and every man had his field and vineyard apart, which this law supposes; wherefore the Jewish writers say, they were not bound to tithes until the fourteenth year, and from thence they began to reckon the sabbatical year; and the twenty first year they made a sabbatical year, and the sixty fourth a jubilee, which they make to be the first that were kept: and they reckoned this year to commence, not on the first of Nisan or March, which was the beginning of the year for ecclesiastical things, but on the first of Tisri or September, when the harvest and all the fruits of the earth were gathered in; and when on other years they used to proceed to sowing the next month, but were forbid on this; and so it is said in the Misnah f857 , the first of Tisri is the beginning of the year for the sabbatical and jubilee years.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - All labour was to cease in the seventh year, as much as
    daily labour of the seventh day. These statues tell us to beware of covetousness, for man's life consists not in the abundance of his possessions. We are to exercise willing dependence on God's providence for our support; to consider ourselves the Lord's tenants or stewards, and to use ou possessions accordingly. This year of rest typified the spiritual res which all believers enter into through Christ. Through Him we are ease of the burden of wordly care and labour, both being sanctified an sweetened to us; and we are enabled and encouraged to live by faith.
