But houses in villages that have no walls around them shall be classed as open country; they may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the jubilee.
As for the cities of the Levites, the Levites shall forever have the right of redemption of the houses in the cities belonging to them.
Such property as may be redeemed from the Levites—houses sold in a city belonging to them—shall be released in the jubilee; because the houses in the cities of the Levites are their possession among the people of Israel.
But the open land around their cities may not be sold; for that is their possession for all time.
If any of your kin fall into difficulty and become dependent on you, you shall support them; they shall live with you as though resident aliens.
Do not take interest in advance or otherwise make a profit from them, but fear your God; let them live with you.
You shall not lend them your money at interest taken in advance, or provide them food at a profit.
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, to be your God.
If any who are dependent on you become so impoverished that they sell themselves to you, you shall not make them serve as slaves.
They shall remain with you as hired or bound laborers. They shall serve with you until the year of the jubilee.
Then they and their children with them shall be free from your authority; they shall go back to their own family and return to their ancestral property.
