1 Yahweh spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and said:
Exod 19:1 Gal 4:24-25 Num 1:1 Num 10:11-12
2 'Speak to the Israelites and say to them: "When you enter the country which I am giving you, the land must keep a Sabbath's rest for Yahweh.
2Chr 36:21 Exod 23:10 Lev 26:34-35 Deut 32:8 Deut 32:49 Deut 34:4 Isa 8:8
3 For six years you will sow your field, for six years you will prune your vineyard and gather its produce.
4 But in the seventh year the land will have a sabbatical rest, a Sabbath for Yahweh. You will neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard,
2Chr 36:21 Lev 25:20-23 Exod 23:10-11 Lev 26:34-35 Lev 26:43
5 nor reap any grain which has grown of its own accord, nor gather the grapes from your untrimmed vine. It will be a year of rest for the land.
2Kgs 19:29 Isa 37:30
6 But what the land produces in its Sabbath will serve to feed you, your slave, male or female, your employee and your guest residing with you;
Acts 2:44 Acts 4:32 Acts 4:34-35 Exod 23:11 Lev 25:20
7 for your cattle too, and the wild animals of your country, whatever it produces will serve as food.
8 "You will count seven weeks of years -- seven times seven years, that is to say a period of seven weeks of years, forty-nine years.
Lev 23:15 Gen 2:2
9 And on the tenth day of the seventh month you will sound the trumpet; on the Day of Expiation you will sound the trumpet throughout the land.
Lev 23:24 Lev 23:27 1Thess 1:8 2Cor 5:19-21 Acts 13:38-39 Lev 16:20 Lev 16:30
10 You will declare this fiftieth year to be sacred and proclaim the liberation of all the country's inhabitants. You will keep this as a jubilee: each of you will return to his ancestral property, each to his own clan.
Jer 34:8 Isa 63:4 Exod 20:2 Isa 61:1-3 Lev 25:13 1Pet 2:16 2Cor 3:17
11 This fiftieth year will be a jubilee year for you; in it you will not sow, you will not harvest the grain that has come up on its own or in it gather grapes from your untrimmed vine.
Lev 25:4-5 Lev 27:17
12 The jubilee will be a holy thing for you; during it you will eat whatever the fields produce.
13 "In this year of jubilee, each of you will return to his ancestral property.
Lev 25:10 Lev 27:17-24 Num 36:4
14 If you buy land from, or sell land to, your fellow-countryman, neither of you may exploit the other.
Lev 19:13 Lev 25:17 1Sam 12:3-4 Amos 5:11-12 Amos 8:4-7 Ezek 22:7 Ezek 22:12-13
15 In buying from your fellow-countryman, you will take account of the number of years since the jubilee; the sale-price he fixes for you will depend on the number of productive years still to run.
Lev 27:18-23 Phil 4:5
16 The greater the number of years, the higher the price you will ask for it; the fewer the number of years, the greater the reduction; for what he is selling you is a certain number of harvests.
Lev 25:27 Lev 25:51
17 So you will not exploit one another, but fear your God, for I am Yahweh your God.
Lev 19:14 Lev 19:32 Lev 25:43 Exod 20:20 Gen 42:18 1Sam 12:24 1Thess 4:6
18 "Hence, you will put my laws and customs into practice; you will keep them and put them into practice, and you will live securely in the country.
Deut 12:10 Jer 23:6 Ezek 33:24-26 Ps 4:8 Prov 1:33 Deut 28:1-14 Deut 33:12
19 The land will give its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live in security.
Joel 2:26 Lev 26:5 Ps 85:12 Ezek 34:25-28 Ezek 36:30 Isa 30:23 Isa 65:21-22
20 "In case you should ask: What shall we eat in this seventh year if we do not sow or harvest our produce?
Lev 25:4 Luke 12:29 2Chr 25:9 2Kgs 6:15-17 Heb 13:5-6 Isa 1:2 Matt 6:25-34
21 I shall order my blessing to be on you in the sixth year, which will yield you enough produce for three years.
Deut 28:8 Prov 10:22 2Cor 9:10 Deut 28:3 Ps 133:3 Exod 16:29 Gen 26:12
22 You will have the old produce to eat while you are sowing in the eighth year, and even in the ninth year, you will be eating the old produce, while waiting for the harvest of that year.
2Kgs 19:29 Lev 26:10 Isa 37:30 Josh 5:11-12
23 "Land will not be sold absolutely, for the land belongs to me, and you are only strangers and guests of mine.
1Chr 29:15 1Pet 2:11 Ps 39:12 2Chr 7:20 Deut 32:43 Exod 19:5 Hos 9:3
24 You will allow a right of redemption over any ancestral property.
1Cor 1:30 Eph 1:7 Eph 1:14 Eph 4:30 Lev 25:27 Lev 25:31 Lev 25:51-53
25 If your brother becomes impoverished and sells off part of his ancestral property, his nearest male relative will come and exercise his family rights over what his brother has sold.
Ruth 2:20 Jer 32:7-8 Ruth 3:9 Ruth 3:12 2Cor 8:9 Heb 2:13-14 Rev 5:9
26 The man who has no one to exercise this right may, once he has found the means to effect the redemption,
27 calculate the number of years that the alienation would have lasted, repay to the purchaser the sum due for the time still to run, and so recover his ancestral property.
28 If he cannot find the sum in compensation, the property sold will remain in the possession of the purchaser until the jubilee year. In the jubilee year, the latter will vacate it and return to his own ancestral property.
1Cor 15:52-54 1Pet 1:4-5 1Thess 4:13-18 Isa 35:9-10 Jer 32:15 Lev 25:10 Lev 25:13
29 "If anyone sells a dwelling house inside a walled town, he will have the right of redemption until the expiry of the year following the sale. His right of redemption is limited to the year;
30 and if the redemption has not been effected by the end of the year, the house in the walled town will become the property of the purchaser and his descendants in perpetuity; he need not vacate it at the jubilee.
31 But houses in villages not enclosed by walls will be considered as situated in the open country; they carry the right of redemption, and the purchaser will vacate them at the jubilee.
32 "As regards the towns of the Levites, town houses forming part of their ancestral property will carry a perpetual right of redemption in their favour.
Josh 21:1-45 Num 35:1-8
33 If a Levite is the one to be affected by the right of redemption, at the jubilee he will vacate the purchased property and return to his own home, to the town in which he has a title to property. The houses in the Levites' towns represent their ancestral property in Israel,
Deut 18:1-2 Num 18:20-24
34 and the arable land depending on these towns cannot be sold, being their ancestral property for ever.
Acts 4:36-37 Lev 25:23 Num 35:2-5
35 "If your brother becomes impoverished and cannot support himself in the community, you will assist him as you would a stranger or guest, so that he can go on living with you.
Deut 15:7-8 1John 3:17 Acts 11:29 Luke 6:35 Ps 37:26 Ps 41:1 Ps 112:5
36 Do not charge him interest on a loan, but fear your God, and let your brother live with you.
Exod 22:25 Deut 23:19-20 Ezek 18:8 Ezek 18:13 Ezek 18:17 Lev 25:17 Ezek 22:12
37 You will not lend him money on interest or give him food to make a profit out of it.
38 I am Yahweh your God who brought you out of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and be your God.
Lev 11:45 Exod 20:2 Num 15:41 Gen 17:7 Heb 11:16 Jer 31:1 Jer 31:33
39 "If your brother becomes impoverished while with you and sells himself to you, you will not make him do the work of a slave;
Exod 21:2 1Kgs 9:22 2Kgs 4:1 Lev 25:46 Neh 5:5 Deut 15:12-14 Exod 1:14
40 you will treat him like an employee or guest, and he will work for you until the jubilee year.
41 He will then leave you, both he and his children, and return to his clan and regain possession of his ancestral property.
Lev 25:28 Exod 21:3 John 8:32 Lev 25:10 Rom 6:14 Titus 2:14
42 For they are my servants whom I have brought out of Egypt, and they may not be bought and sold as slaves.
Lev 25:55 Rom 6:22 1Cor 7:21-23
43 You will not oppress your brother-Israelites harshly but will fear your God.
Col 4:1 Exod 1:13-14 Lev 25:17 Lev 25:46 Lev 25:53 Eph 6:9 Ezek 34:4
44 "The male and female slaves you have will come from the nations round you; from these you may purchase male and female slaves.
Exod 12:44 Isa 14:1-2 Ps 2:8-9 Rev 2:26-27
45 As slaves, you may also purchase the children of aliens resident among you, and also members of their families living with you who have been born on your soil; and they will become your property,
46 and you may leave them as a legacy to your sons after you as their perpetual possession. These you may have for slaves; but you will not oppress your brother-Israelites.
Isa 14:2 Lev 25:43
47 "If a stranger or guest living with you gets rich and your brother, in the course of dealings with him, becomes impoverished and sells himself to this stranger or guest, or to the descendant of a stranger's family,
1Sam 2:7-8 Jas 2:5 Lev 25:26
48 he will enjoy the right of redemption after being sold, and one of his brothers may redeem him.
Heb 2:11-13 Neh 5:5 Gal 4:4-5 Lev 25:25 Lev 25:35 Neh 5:8
49 His paternal uncle, his uncle's son, or a member of his own family may redeem him; if he has the means, he may redeem himself.
50 By agreement with his purchaser, he will count the number of years between the year of sale and the jubilee year; his sale-price will be proportionate to the number of years, his time being valued as that of an employee.
Isa 16:14 Isa 21:16 Deut 15:18 Job 7:1-2 Job 14:6 Lev 25:40 Lev 25:53
51 If there are still many years to run, in proportion to their number he will refund part of his sale-price as payment for his redemption.
52 And if there are only a few years still to run before the jubilee year, he will calculate with him what should be refunded for his redemption, in proportion to their number,
53 as though he were hired by the year. You will see to it that he is not harshly oppressed.
Lev 25:43 Lev 25:46
54 "If he has not been redeemed in any of these ways, he will go free in the jubilee year, both he and his children;
Exod 21:2-3 Isa 49:9 Isa 49:25 Isa 52:3 Lev 25:40-41
55 for the Israelites are my servants; they are my servants whom I brought out of Egypt. I am Yahweh your God." '
