The Year of Jubilee

Leviticus 25

8 'And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. 9 'Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; f on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. 10 'And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and g proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; h and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. 11 'That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it i you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. 12 'For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; j you shall eat its produce from the field.

13 k 'In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession. 14 'And if you sell anything to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor's hand, you shall not l oppress one another. 15 m 'According to the number of years after the Jubilee you shall buy from your neighbor, and according to the number of years of crops he shall sell to you. 16 'According to the multitude of years you shall increase its price, and according to the fewer number of years you shall diminish its price; for he sells to you according to the number of the years of the crops. 17 'Therefore n you shall not 1 oppress one another, o but you shall fear your God; for I am the LORD your God.

18 p 'So you shall observe My statutes and keep My judgments, and perform them; q and you will dwell in the land in safety. 19 'Then the land will yield its fruit, and r you will eat your fill, and dwell there in safety. 20 'And if you say, s "What shall we eat in the seventh year, since t we shall not sow nor gather in our produce?" 21 'Then I will u command My blessing on you in the v sixth year, and it will bring forth produce enough for three years. 22 w 'And you shall sow in the eighth year, and eat x old produce until the ninth year; until its produce comes in, you shall eat of the old harvest.
