'You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.
'You shall have the fiftieth year as a jubilee ; you shall not sow, nor reap its aftergrowth, nor gather in from its untrimmed vines.
'For it is a jubilee ; it shall be holy to you. You shall eat its crops out of the field.
'On this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his own property.
'But if he has not found sufficient means to get it back for himself, then what he has sold shall remain in the hands of its purchaser until the year of jubilee ; but at the jubilee it shall revert, that he may return to his property.
'But if it is not bought back for him within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city passes permanently to its purchaser throughout his generations ; it does not revert in the jubilee.
'The houses of the villages, however, which have no surrounding wall shall be considered as open fields ; they have redemption rights and revert in the jubilee.
'What, therefore, belongs to the Levites may be redeemed and a house sale in the city of this possession reverts in the jubilee, for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the sons of Israel.
'He then with his purchaser shall calculate from the year when he sold himself to him up to the year of jubilee ; and the price of his sale shall correspond to the number of years. It is like the days of a hired man that he shall be with him.
'If he consecrates his field as of the year of jubilee, according to your valuation it shall stand.
'If he consecrates his field after the jubilee, however, then the priest shall calculate the price for him proportionate to the years that are left until the year of jubilee ; and it shall be deducted from your valuation.
then the priest shall calculate for him the amount of your valuation up to the year of jubilee ; and he shall on that day give your valuation as holy to the LORD.
'In the year of jubilee the field shall return to the one from whom he bought it, to whom the possession of the land belongs.
