Leviticus 25

GNTA 1 The Lord spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and commanded him NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses at Mount Sinai, GNTA 2 to give the following regulations to the people of Israel. When you enter the land that the Lord is giving you, you shall honor the Lord by not cultivating the land every seventh year. NIV 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you, the land itself must observe a sabbath to the LORD. GNTA 3 You shall plant your fields, prune your vineyards, and gather your crops for six years. NIV 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. GNTA 4 But the seventh year is to be a year of complete rest for the land, a year dedicated to the Lord. Do not plant your fields or prune your vineyards. NIV 4 But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of sabbath rest, a sabbath to the LORD. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards. GNTA 5 Do not even harvest the grain that grows by itself without being planted, and do not gather the grapes from your unpruned vines; it is a year of complete rest for the land. NIV 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest. GNTA 6 Although the land has not been cultivated during that year, it will provide food for you, your slaves, your hired men, the foreigners living with you, NIV 6 Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will be food for you—for yourself, your male and female servants, and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among you, GNTA 7 your domestic animals, and the wild animals in your fields. Everything that it produces may be eaten. NIV 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten. GNTA 8 Count seven times seven years, a total of forty-nine years. NIV 8 “ ‘Count off seven sabbath years—seven times seven years—so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period of forty-nine years. GNTA 9 Then, on the tenth day of the seventh month, the Day of Atonement, send someone to blow a trumpet throughout the whole land. NIV 9 Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. GNTA 10 In this way you shall set the fiftieth year apart and proclaim freedom to all the inhabitants of the land. During this year all property that has been sold shall be restored to the original owner or the descendants, and any who have been sold as slaves shall return to their families. NIV 10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. GNTA 11 You shall not plant your fields or harvest the grain that grows by itself or gather the grapes in your unpruned vineyards. NIV 11 The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines. GNTA 12 The whole year shall be sacred for you; you shall eat only what the fields produce of themselves. NIV 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields. GNTA 13 In this year all property that has been sold shall be restored to its original owner. NIV 13 “ ‘In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to their own property. GNTA 14 So when you sell land to an Israelite or buy land, do not deal unfairly. NIV 14 “ ‘If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land from them, do not take advantage of each other. GNTA 15 The price is to be set according to the number of years the land can produce crops before the next Year of Restoration. NIV 15 You are to buy from your own people on the basis of the number of years since the Jubilee. And they are to sell to you on the basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops. GNTA 16 If there are many years, the price shall be higher, but if there are only a few years, the price shall be lower, because what is being sold is the number of crops the land can produce. NIV 16 When the years are many, you are to increase the price, and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price, because what is really being sold to you is the number of crops. GNTA 17 Do not cheat an Israelite, but obey the Lord your God. NIV 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God. GNTA 18 Obey all the Lord's laws and commands, so that you may live in safety in the land. NIV 18 “ ‘Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. GNTA 19 The land will produce its crops, and you will have all you want to eat and will live in safety. NIV 19 Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety. GNTA 20 But someone may ask what there will be to eat during the seventh year, when no fields are planted and no crops gathered. NIV 20 You may ask, “What will we eat in the seventh year if we do not plant or harvest our crops?” GNTA 21 The Lord will bless the land in the sixth year so that it will produce enough food for two years. NIV 21 I will send you such a blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for three years. GNTA 22 When you plant your fields in the eighth year, you will still be eating what you harvested during the sixth year, and you will have enough to eat until the crops you plant that year are harvested. NIV 22 While you plant during the eighth year, you will eat from the old crop and will continue to eat from it until the harvest of the ninth year comes in. GNTA 23 Your land must not be sold on a permanent basis, because you do not own it; it belongs to God, and you are like foreigners who are allowed to make use of it. NIV 23 “ ‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers. GNTA 24 When land is sold, the right of the original owner to buy it back must be recognized. NIV 24 Throughout the land that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land. GNTA 25 If any of you Israelites become poor and are forced to sell your land, your closest relative is to buy it back. NIV 25 “ ‘If one of your fellow Israelites becomes poor and sells some of their property, their nearest relative is to come and redeem what they have sold. GNTA 26 If you have no relative to buy it back, you may later become prosperous and have enough to buy it back yourself. NIV 26 If, however, there is no one to redeem it for them but later on they prosper and acquire sufficient means to redeem it themselves, GNTA 27 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. NIV 27 they are to determine the value for the years since they sold it and refund the balance to the one to whom they sold it; they can then go back to their own property. GNTA 28 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. NIV 28 But if they do not acquire the means to repay, what was sold will remain in the possession of the buyer until the Year of Jubilee. It will be returned in the Jubilee, and they can then go back to their property. GNTA 29 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. NIV 29 “ ‘Anyone who sells a house in a walled city retains the right of redemption a full year after its sale. During that time the seller may redeem it. GNTA 30 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. NIV 30 If it is not redeemed before a full year has passed, the house in the walled city shall belong permanently to the buyer and the buyer’s descendants. It is not to be returned in the Jubilee. GNTA 31 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. NIV 31 But houses in villages without walls around them are to be considered as belonging to the open country. They can be redeemed, and they are to be returned in the Jubilee. GNTA 32 However, Levites have the right to buy back at any time their property in the cities assigned to them. NIV 32 “ ‘The Levites always have the right to redeem their houses in the Levitical towns, which they possess. GNTA 33 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. NIV 33 So the property of the Levites is redeemable—that is, a house sold in any town they hold—and is to be returned in the Jubilee, because the houses in the towns of the Levites are their property among the Israelites. GNTA 34 But the pasture land around the Levite cities shall never be sold; it is their property forever. NIV 34 But the pastureland belonging to their towns must not be sold; it is their permanent possession. GNTA 35 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. NIV 35 “ ‘If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and are unable to support themselves among you, help them as you would a foreigner and stranger, so they can continue to live among you. GNTA 36 Do not charge Israelites any interest, but obey God and let them live near you. NIV 36 Do not take interest or any profit from them, but fear your God, so that they may continue to live among you. GNTA 37 Do not make them pay interest on the money you lend them, and do not make a profit on the food you sell them. NIV 37 You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit. GNTA 38 This is the command of the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt in order to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. NIV 38 I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan and to be your God. GNTA 39 If any Israelites living near you become so poor that they sell themselves to you as a slave, you shall not make them do the work of a slave. NIV 39 “ ‘If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and sell themselves to you, do not make them work as slaves. GNTA 40 They shall stay with you as hired workers and serve you until the next Year of Restoration. NIV 40 They are to be treated as hired workers or temporary residents among you; they are to work for you until the Year of Jubilee. GNTA 41 At that time they and their children shall leave you and return to their family and to the property of their ancestors. NIV 41 Then they and their children are to be released, and they will go back to their own clans and to the property of their ancestors. GNTA 42 The people of Israel are the Lord's slaves, and he brought them out of Egypt; they must not be sold into slavery. NIV 42 Because the Israelites are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt, they must not be sold as slaves. GNTA 43 Do not treat them harshly, but obey your God. NIV 43 Do not rule over them ruthlessly, but fear your God. GNTA 44 If you need slaves, you may buy them from the nations around you. NIV 44 “ ‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. GNTA 45 You may also buy the children of the foreigners who are living among you. Such children born in your land may become your property, NIV 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. GNTA 46 and you may leave them as an inheritance to your children, whom they must serve as long as they live. But you must not treat any Israelites harshly. NIV 46 You can bequeath them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly. GNTA 47 Suppose a foreigner living with you becomes rich, while some Israelites become poor and sell themselves as slaves to that foreigner or to a member of that foreigner's family. NIV 47 “ ‘If a foreigner residing among you becomes rich and any of your fellow Israelites become poor and sell themselves to the foreigner or to a member of the foreigner’s clan, GNTA 48 After they are sold, they still have the right to be bought back. A brother NIV 48 they retain the right of redemption after they have sold themselves. One of their relatives may redeem them: GNTA 49 or an uncle or a cousin or another close relative may buy them back; or if they themselves earn enough, they may buy their own freedom. NIV 49 An uncle or a cousin or any blood relative in their clan may redeem them. Or if they prosper, they may redeem themselves. GNTA 50 They must consult the one who bought them, and they must count the years from the time they sold themselves until the next Year of Restoration and must set the price for their release on the basis of the wages paid hired workers. NIV 50 They and their buyer are to count the time from the year they sold themselves up to the Year of Jubilee. The price for their release is to be based on the rate paid to a hired worker for that number of years. GNTA 51 They must refund a part of the purchase price according to the number of years left, NIV 51 If many years remain, they must pay for their redemption a larger share of the price paid for them. GNTA 53 as if they had been hired on an annual basis. Their master must not treat them harshly. NIV 53 They are to be treated as workers hired from year to year; you must see to it that those to whom they owe service do not rule over them ruthlessly. GNTA 54 If they are not set free in any of these ways, they and their children must be set free in the next Year of Restoration. NIV 54 “ ‘Even if someone is not redeemed in any of these ways, they and their children are to be released in the Year of Jubilee, GNTA 55 Israelites cannot be permanent slaves, because the people of Israel are the Lord's slaves. He brought them out of Egypt; he is the Lord their God. NIV 55 for the Israelites belong to me as servants. They are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.
