" 'In this Year of Jubilee1 everyone is to return to his own property.
" 'If you sell land to one of your countrymen or buy any from him, do not take advantage of each other.215
You are to buy from your countryman on the basis of the number of years3 since the Jubilee. And he is to sell to you on the basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops.
When the years are many, you are to increase the price, and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price,4 because what he is really selling you is the number of crops.
