Leviticus 25:1-7

The sabbatical year

1 The LORD said to Moses on Mount Sinai,
2 Speak to the Israelites and say to them: Once you enter the land that I am giving you, the land must celebrate a sabbath rest to the LORD.
3 You will plant your fields for six years, and prune your vineyards and gather their crops for six years.
4 But in the seventh year the land will have a special sabbath rest, a Sabbath to the LORD: You must not plant your fields or prune your vineyards.
5 You must not harvest the secondary growth of your produce or gather the grapes of your freely growing vines. It will be a year of special rest for the land.
6 Whatever the land produces during its sabbath will be your food—for you, for your male and female servants, and for your hired laborers and foreign guests who live with you,
7 as well as for your livestock and for the wild animals in your land. All of the land's produce can be eaten.
