You shall observe my statutes and faithfully keep my ordinances, so that you may live on the land securely.
The land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live on it securely.
Should you ask, "What shall we eat in the seventh year, if we may not sow or gather in our crop?"
I will order my blessing for you in the sixth year, so that it will yield a crop for three years.
When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating from the old crop; until the ninth year, when its produce comes in, you shall eat the old.
The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine; with me you are but aliens and tenants.
Throughout the land that you hold, you shall provide for the redemption of the land.
If anyone of your kin falls into difficulty and sells a piece of property, then the next of kin shall come and redeem what the relative has sold.
If the person has no one to redeem it, but then prospers and finds sufficient means to do so,
the years since its sale shall be computed and the difference shall be refunded to the person to whom it was sold, and the property shall be returned.
But if there are not sufficient means to recover it, what was sold shall remain with the purchaser until the year of jubilee; in the jubilee it shall be released, and the property shall be returned.
