CSB 1 The Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai: NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai, CSB 2 "Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you enter the land I am giving you, the land will observe a Sabbath to the Lord. NIV 2 "Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a sabbath to the LORD. CSB 3 You may sow your field for six years, and you may prune your vineyard and gather its produce for six years. NIV 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. CSB 4 But there will be a Sabbath of complete rest for the land in the seventh year, a Sabbath to the Lord: you are not to sow your field or prune your vineyard. NIV 4 But in the seventh year the land is to have a sabbath of rest, a sabbath to the LORD. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. CSB 5 You are not to reap what grows by itself from your crop, or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. It must be a year of complete rest for the land. NIV 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. CSB 6 [Whatever] the land [produces during] the Sabbath year can be food for you; for yourself, your male or female slave, and the hired hand or foreigner who stays with you. NIV 6 Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you--for yourself, your manservant and maidservant, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you, CSB 7 All of its growth may serve as food for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. NIV 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten. CSB 8 "You are to count seven sabbatic years, seven times seven years, so that the time period of the seven sabbatic years amounts to 49. NIV 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. CSB 9 Then you are to sound a trumpet loudly in the seventh month, on the tenth [day] of the month; you will sound it throughout your land on the Day of Atonement. NIV 9 Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. CSB 10 You are to consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim freedom in the land for all its inhabitants. It will be your Jubilee, when each of you is to return to his property and each of you to his clan. NIV 10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each one of you is to return to his family property and each to his own clan. CSB 11 The fiftieth year will be your Jubilee; you are not to sow, reap what grows by itself, or harvest its untended vines. NIV 11 The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines. CSB 12 It is to be holy to you because it is the Jubilee; you may [only] eat its produce [directly] from the field. NIV 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields. CSB 13 "In this Year of Jubilee, each of you will return to his property. NIV 13 " 'In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to his own property. CSB 14 If you make a sale to your neighbor or a purchase from him, do not cheat one another. NIV 14 " 'If you sell land to one of your countrymen or buy any from him, do not take advantage of each other. CSB 15 You are to make the purchase from your neighbor based on the number of years since the last Jubilee. He is to sell to you based on the number of [remaining] harvest years. NIV 15 You are to buy from your countryman on the basis of the number of years since the Jubilee. And he is to sell to you on the basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops. CSB 16 You are to increase its price in proportion to a greater amount of years, and decrease its price in proportion to a lesser amount of years, because what he is selling to you is a number of harvests. NIV 16 When the years are many, you are to increase the price, and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price, because what he is really selling you is the number of crops. CSB 17 You are not to cheat one another, but fear your God, for I am the Lord your God. NIV 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God. CSB 18 "You are to observe My statutes and ordinances and carefully observe them, so that you may live securely in the land. NIV 18 " 'Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. CSB 19 Then the land will yield its fruit, so that you can eat, be satisfied, and live securely in the land. NIV 19 Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety. CSB 20 If you wonder: 'What will we eat in the seventh year if we don't sow or gather our produce?' NIV 20 You may ask, "What will we eat in the seventh year if we do not plant or harvest our crops?" CSB 21 I will appoint My blessing for you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years. NIV 21 I will send you such a blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for three years. CSB 22 When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating from the previous harvest. You will be eating this until the ninth year when its harvest comes in. NIV 22 While you plant during the eighth year, you will eat from the old crop and will continue to eat from it until the harvest of the ninth year comes in. CSB 23 "The land is not to be permanently sold because it is Mine, and you are only foreigners and temporary residents on My land. NIV 23 " 'The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you are but aliens and my tenants. CSB 24 You are to allow the redemption of any land you occupy. NIV 24 Throughout the country that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land. CSB 25 If your brother becomes destitute and sells part of his property, his nearest relative may come and redeem what his brother has sold. NIV 25 " 'If one of your countrymen becomes poor and sells some of his property, his nearest relative is to come and redeem what his countryman has sold. CSB 26 If a man has no family redeemer, but he prospers and obtains enough to redeem his land, NIV 26 If, however, a man has no one to redeem it for him but he himself prospers and acquires sufficient means to redeem it, CSB 27 he may calculate the years since its sale, repay the balance to the man he sold it to, and return to his property. NIV 27 he is to determine the value for the years since he sold it and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it; he can then go back to his own property. CSB 28 But if he cannot obtain enough to repay him, what he sold will remain in the possession of its purchaser until the Year of Jubilee. It is to be released at the Jubilee, so that he may return to his property. NIV 28 But if he does not acquire the means to repay him, what he sold will remain in the possession of the buyer until the Year of Jubilee. It will be returned in the Jubilee, and he can then go back to his property. CSB 29 "If a man sells a residence in a walled city, his right of redemption will last until a year has passed after its sale; his right of redemption will last a year. NIV 29 " 'If a man sells a house in a walled city, he retains the right of redemption a full year after its sale. During that time he may redeem it. CSB 30 If it is not redeemed by the end of a full year, then the house in the walled city is permanently transferred to its purchaser throughout his generations. It is not to be released on the Jubilee. NIV 30 If it is not redeemed before a full year has passed, the house in the walled city shall belong permanently to the buyer and his descendants. It is not to be returned in the Jubilee. CSB 31 But houses in villages that have no walls around them are to be classified as open fields. The right to redeem [such] houses stays in effect, and they are to be released at the Jubilee. NIV 31 But houses in villages without walls around them are to be considered as open country. They can be redeemed, and they are to be returned in the Jubilee. CSB 32 "Concerning the Levitical cities, the Levites always have the right to redeem houses in the cities they possess. NIV 32 " 'The Levites always have the right to redeem their houses in the Levitical towns, which they possess. CSB 33 Whatever [property] one of the Levites can redeem-a house sold in a city they possess-must be released at the Jubilee, because the houses in the Levitical cities are their possession among the Israelites. NIV 33 So the property of the Levites is redeemable--that is, a house sold in any town they hold--and is to be returned in the Jubilee, because the houses in the towns of the Levites are their property among the Israelites. CSB 34 The open pastureland around their cities may not be sold, for it is their permanent possession. NIV 34 But the pastureland belonging to their towns must not be sold; it is their permanent possession. CSB 35 "If your brother becomes destitute and cannot sustain himself among you, you are to support him as a foreigner or temporary resident, so that he can continue to live among you. NIV 35 " 'If one of your countrymen becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you. CSB 36 Do not profit or take interest from him, but fear your God and let your brother live among you. NIV 36 Do not take interest of any kind from him, but fear your God, so that your countryman may continue to live among you. CSB 37 You are not to lend him your silver with interest or sell [him] your food for profit. NIV 37 You must not lend him money at interest or sell him food at a profit. CSB 38 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. NIV 38 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. CSB 39 "If your brother among you becomes destitute and sells himself to you, you must not force him to do slave labor. NIV 39 " 'If one of your countrymen becomes poor among you and sells himself to you, do not make him work as a slave. CSB 40 Let him stay with you as a hired hand or temporary resident; he may work for you until the Year of Jubilee. NIV 40 He is to be treated as a hired worker or a temporary resident among you; he is to work for you until the Year of Jubilee. CSB 41 Then he and his children are to be released from you, and he may return to his clan and his ancestral property. NIV 41 Then he and his children are to be released, and he will go back to his own clan and to the property of his forefathers. CSB 42 They are not to be sold as slaves, because they are My slaves I brought out of the land of Egypt. NIV 42 Because the Israelites are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt, they must not be sold as slaves. CSB 43 You are not to rule over them harshly but fear your God. NIV 43 Do not rule over them ruthlessly, but fear your God. CSB 44 Your male and female slaves are to be from the nations around you; you may purchase male and female slaves. NIV 44 " 'Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. CSB 45 You may also purchase them from the foreigners staying with you, or from their families living among you-those born in your land. These may become your property. NIV 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. CSB 46 You may leave them to your sons after you to inherit as property; you can make them slaves for life. But concerning your brothers, the Israelites, you must not rule over one another harshly. NIV 46 You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly. CSB 47 "If a foreigner or temporary resident [living] among you prospers, but your brother [living] near him becomes destitute and sells himself to the foreigner living among you, or to a member of the foreigner's clan, NIV 47 " 'If an alien or a temporary resident among you becomes rich and one of your countrymen becomes poor and sells himself to the alien living among you or to a member of the alien's clan, CSB 48 he has the right of redemption after he has been sold. One of his brothers may redeem him. NIV 48 he retains the right of redemption after he has sold himself. One of his relatives may redeem him: CSB 49 His uncle or cousin may redeem him, or any of his close relatives from his clan may redeem him. If he prospers, he may redeem himself. NIV 49 An uncle or a cousin or any blood relative in his clan may redeem him. Or if he prospers, he may redeem himself. CSB 50 The one who purchased him is to calculate [the time] from the year he sold himself to him until the Year of Jubilee. The price of his sale will be [determined] by the number of years. It will be [set] for him like the daily wages of a hired hand. NIV 50 He and his buyer are to count the time from the year he sold himself up to the Year of Jubilee. The price for his release is to be based on the rate paid to a hired man for that number of years. CSB 51 If many years are still left, he must pay his redemption price in proportion to them based on his purchase price. NIV 51 If many years remain, he must pay for his redemption a larger share of the price paid for him. CSB 52 If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, he will calculate and pay the price of his redemption in proportion to his [remaining] years. NIV 52 If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, he is to compute that and pay for his redemption accordingly. CSB 53 He will stay with him like a man hired year by year. A foreign owner is not to rule over him harshly in your sight. NIV 53 He is to be treated as a man hired from year to year; you must see to it that his owner does not rule over him ruthlessly. CSB 54 If he is not redeemed in any of these [ways], he and his children are to be released at the Year of Jubilee. NIV 54 " 'Even if he is not redeemed in any of these ways, he and his children are to be released in the Year of Jubilee, CSB 55 For the Israelites are My slaves. They are My slaves I brought out of the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. NIV 55 for the Israelites belong to me as servants. They are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.
