The Year of Jubilee

25:8-38Ref -- Dt 15:1-11 25:39-55Ref -- Ex 21:2-11; Dt 15:12-18

8 " 'Count off seven sabbaths of years--seven times seven years--so that the seven sabbaths of years amount to a period of forty-nine years. 9 Then have the trumpet2 sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month;3 on the Day of Atonement4 sound the trumpet throughout your land. 10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty5 throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee6 for you; each one of you is to return to his family property7 and each to his own clan. 11 The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee8 for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.9 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields. 13 " 'In this Year of Jubilee10 everyone is to return to his own property. 14 " 'If you sell land to one of your countrymen or buy any from him, do not take advantage of each other.11 15 You are to buy from your countryman on the basis of the number of years12 since the Jubilee. And he is to sell to you on the basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops. 16 When the years are many, you are to increase the price, and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price,13 because what he is really selling you is the number of crops. 17 Do not take advantage of each other,14 but fear your God.15 I am the LORD your God.16
