Then have the trumpet1 sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month;2 on the Day of Atonement3 sound the trumpet throughout your land.
Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty4 throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee5 for you; each one of you is to return to his family property6 and each to his own clan.
The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee7 for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.812

You are to buy from your countryman on the basis of the number of years11 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,12 because what he is really selling you is the number of crops.
