If you have no relative to buy it back, you may later become prosperous and have enough to buy it back yourself.
In that case you must pay to the one who bought it a sum that will make up for the years remaining until the next Year of Restoration, when you would in any event recover your land.
But if you do not have enough money to buy the land back, it remains under the control of the one who bought it until the next Year of Restoration. In that year it will be returned to its original owner.
If you sell a house in a walled city, you have the right to buy it back during the first full year from the date of sale.
But if you do not buy it back within the year, you lose the right of repurchase, and the house becomes the permanent property of the purchasers and their descendants; it will not be returned in the Year of Restoration.
But houses in unwalled villages are to be treated like fields; the original owner has the right to buy them back, and they are to be returned in the Year of Restoration.
However, Levites have the right to buy back at any time their property in the cities assigned to them.
If a house in one of these cities is sold by a Levite and is not bought back, it must be returned in the Year of Restoration, because the houses which the Levites own in their cities are their permanent property among the people of Israel.
But the pasture land around the Levite cities shall never be sold; it is their property forever.
If any Israelites living near you become poor and cannot support themselves, you must provide for them as you would for a hired worker, so that they can continue to live near you. 1
Do not charge Israelites any interest, but obey God and let them live near you.
