    King James Bible - Leviticus 25:32

    Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.

    World English Bible

    "'Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, the houses in the cities of their possession, the Levites may redeem at any
    time.

    Douay-Rheims - Leviticus 25:32

    The houses of Levites, which are in cities, may always be redeemed:

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any
    time.

    Original Hebrew

    וערי
    5892 הלוים 3881 בתי 1004 ערי 5892 אחזתם 272 גאלת 1353 עולם 5769 תהיה 1961 ללוים׃ 3881

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 25:32

    Pero en cuanto a las ciudades de los levitas, y de las casas de las ciudades, que poseyeren, los levitas tendrán redención siempre.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Leviticus 25:32

    Verse 32. The cities of the
    Levites] The law in this and the following verses was also a very wise one. A Levite could not ultimately sell his house: if sold he could redeem it at any time tn the interim between the two jubilees; but if not redeemed, it must go out at the following jubilee.

    And why? "Because Moses framed his laws so much in favour of the priesthood, that they had peculiar privileges?" &c. Just the reverse: they were so far from being peculiarly favoured that they had no inheritance in Israel, only their cities, to dwell in: and because their houses in these cities were the whole that they could call their own, therefore these houses could not be ultimately alienated. All that they had to live on besides was from that most precarious source of support, the freewill-offerings of the people, which depended on the prevalence of pure religion in the land.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 32. Notwithstanding, the cities of the Levites , etc.] The six cities of refuge, and forty two others; these and the houses in them are excepted from the above law, and only they; not such as they might purchase elsewhere; wherefore it follows, [and] the houses of the cities of their possession ; which were in cities possessed by them, and which was their possession, and given them as such: may the Levites redeem at any time ; they were not restrained to a year, as houses in walled towns, but they might redeem them as they pleased or could; and if they did not redeem them within the year, they might redeem them afterwards, even years after, and any time before the year of jubilee; so it is said in the Misnah the priests and the Levites sell always, and they redeem always, as it is said, ( Leviticus 25:32); on which one of the commentators says “they sell always”, not as the Israelites, who cannot sell less than two years before the jubilee; but the Levites can sell near the jubilee: “and they redeem always”; if they sell houses in walled cities, they are not confirmed at the end of the year, as the houses of Israelites; and if they sell fields, it is not necessary they should remain in the hands of the buyer two years, but they may redeem them immediately if they will: this redemption was peculiar to the Levites; for if an Israelite has an inheritance from his father’s mother, a Levite, he might not redeem according to the manner Levites did, but according to Israelites; and so a Levite that inherited from his father’s mother, an Israelite, was obliged to redeem as an Israelite and not as a Levite f883 ; for this perpetual redemption respected only houses that were in the cities of the Levites.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 23-34 - If the
    land were not redeemed before the year of jubilee, it the returned to him that sold or mortgaged it. This was a figure of the free grace of God in Christ; by which, and not by any price or merit of our own, we are restored to the favour of God. Houses in walled citie were more the fruits of their own industry than land in the country which was the direct gift of God's bounty; therefore if a man sold house in a city, he might redeem it only within a year after the sale This encouraged strangers and proselytes to come and settle among them.
