'The land, moreover, shall not be soldpermanently, for 1the land is Mine; for 2you are but aliens and sojourners with Me.
'Thus for everyapiece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land.
'3If a bfellowcountryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearestkinsman is to come and buybackwhat his crelative has sold.
'Or in case a manhasnokinsman, but so drecovers his means as to findsufficient for its redemption,
274then he shall calculate the years since its sale and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and so return to his property.
'But ifehe has not foundsufficientmeans to get it back for himself, then what he has sold shall remain in the hands of its purchaseruntil the year of jubilee ; but at the jubilee it shall frevert, that 5he may return to his property.
'Likewise, if a mansells a dwellinghouse in a walledcity, then his redemptionrightremains valid until a fullyear from its sale ; his right of redemptionlasts a fullyear.
'But if it is not boughtback for him within the space of a fullyear, then the house that is in the walledcitypassespermanently to its purchaser throughout his generations ; it does not grevert in the jubilee.
'The houses of the villages, however, whichhavenosurroundingwall shall be consideredhas openfields ; they haveredemptionrights and irevert in the jubilee.
'As for 6cities of the Levites, the Leviteshave a permanentright of redemption for the houses of the cities which are their possession.
33'What, therefore, jbelongs to the Levites may be redeemed and a housesalekin the city of this possessionlreverts in the jubilee, for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possessionamong the sons of Israel.
'7But pasturefields of their cities shall not be sold, for that is their perpetualpossession.
