   1: And the LORD spoke to Moses in mount Sinai, saying,
   2: Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath to the LORD.
   3: Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
   4: But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest to the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
   5: That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest, thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: [for] it is a year of rest to the land.
   6: And the sabbath of the land shall be food for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee,
   7: And for thy cattle, and for the beast that [are] in thy land, shall all the increase of it be food.
   8: And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years to thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to thee forty and nine years.
   9: Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubilee to sound, on the tenth [day] of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
   10: And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout [all] the land to all its inhabitants: it shall be a jubilee to you; and ye shall return every man to his possession, and ye shall return every man to his family.
   11: A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be to you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather [the grapes] in it of thy vine undressed.
   12: For it [is] the jubilee; it shall be holy to you: ye shall eat the increase of it out of the field.
   13: In the year of this jubilee ye shall return every man to his possession.
   14: And if thou shalt sell aught to thy neighbor, or buy [aught] of thy neighbor's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:
   15: According to the number of years after the jubilee thou shalt buy of thy neighbor, [and] according to the number of years of the fruits he shall sell to thee:
   16: According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price of it, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for [according] to the number [of the years] of the fruits doth he sell to thee.
   17: Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I [am] the LORD your God.
   18: Wherefore ye shall do my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; and ye shall dwell in the land in safety.
   19: And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell in it in safety.
   20: And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow nor gather in our increase:
   21: Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.
   22: And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat of old fruit until the ninth year; until its fruits come in ye shall eat [of] the old [store].
   23: The land shall not be sold for ever; for the land [is] mine, for ye [are] strangers and sojourners with me.
   24: And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.
   25: If thy brother shall have become poor, and have sold [some] of his possession, and if any of his kin shall come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.
   26: And if the man shall have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;
   27: Then let him count the years of the sale of it, and restore the overplus to the man to whom he sold it; that he may return to his possession.
   28: But if he shall not be able to restore [it] to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the year of jubilee: and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return to his possession.
   29: And if a man shall sell a dwelling-house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold: [within] a full year may he redeem it.
   30: And if it shall not be redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that [is] in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it, throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee,
   31: But the houses of the villages which have no walls around them, shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubilee.
   32: Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, [and] the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.
   33: And if a man shall purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession shall go out in the [year of] jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites [are] their possession among the children of Israel.
   34: But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold, for it [is] their perpetual possession.
   35: And if thy brother shall have become poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: [yea, though he] may [be] a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
   36: Take thou no interest of him, or increase; but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
   37: Thou shalt not give him thy money upon interest, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
   38: I [am] the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, [and] to be your God.
   39: And if thy brother [that dwelleth] by thee shall have become poor, and be sold to thee; thou shalt not compel him to serve as a bond servant:
   40: [But] as a hired servant, [and] as a sojourner he shall be with thee, [and] shall serve thee to the year of jubilee.
   41: And [then] shall he depart from thee, [both] he and his children with him, and shall return to his own family, and to the possession of his fathers shall he return.
   42: For they [are] my servants, which I brought out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as bond-men.
   43: Thou shalt not rule over him with rigor, but shalt fear thy God.
   44: Both thy bond-men, and thy bond-maids, which thou shalt have, [shall be] of the heathen that are around you; of them shall ye buy bond-men and bond-maids.
   45: Moreover of the children of the strangers that sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their families that are with you, which they begat in your land: and they shall be your possession.
   46: And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your children after you, to inherit [them for] a possession, they shall be your bond-men for ever: but over your brethren the children of Israel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigor.
   47: And if a sojourner or a stranger shall become rich by thee, and thy brother [that dwelleth] by him shall become poor, and sell himself to the stranger [or] sojourner by thee, or to the stock of the stranger's family:
   48: After that he is sold he may be redeemed again; one of his brethren may redeem him:
   49: Either his uncle, or his uncle's son may redeem him, or [any] that is nigh of kin to him of his family, may redeem him; or if he is able, he may redeem himself.
   50: And he shall reckon with him that bought him, from the year that he was sold 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 it be with him.
   51: If [there shall be] yet many years [behind], according to them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.
   52: And if there shall remain but few years to the year of jubilee, then he shall count with him, [and] according to his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption.
   53: [And] as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: [and the other] shall not rule with rigor over him in thy sight.
   54: And if he shall not be redeemed in these [years], then he shall go out in the year of jubilee, [both] he, and his children with him.
   55: For to me the children of Israel [are] servants, they [are] my servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I [am] the LORD your God.
