This chapter treats of a release of debts every seventh year, to which
a blessing is promised if attended to, \\#De 15:1-6\\, which seventh
year of release should not hinder lending to a poor man in distress,
even though it was nigh at hand, \\#De 15:7-11\\ and of letting
servants go free, whether manservant or maidservant, at the end of
six years' servitude, \\#De 15:12-15\\ but if unwilling to go, and
desirous of staying, must have his ear bored through with an awl, and
serve to the year of jubilee, \\#De 15:16-18\\ and of sanctifying and
eating the firstlings of the herd and flock where the Lord directs,
\\#De 15:19-23\\.
