According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.
According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase
the price thereof
More was to be asked and required, and should be given for an
estate, when, for instance, there were thirty years to the year
of jubilee, than when there were but twenty; and according
to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price
if it wanted but five, or six, or ten years unto it, then, in
proportion, less was to be insisted upon and given: for
[according] to the number [of the years] of the fruits doth
he sell unto thee;
which also must be considered, how many years of tillage of land,
and cultivation of vineyards there were in the account, and how
many sabbatical years to be deducted; for only according to the
number of fruit years was the estate to be valued and sold.
