NCV 1 The Lord said to Moses at Mount Sinai, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses at Mount Sinai, NCV 2 "Tell the people of Israel this: 'When you enter the land I will give you, let it have a special time of rest, to honor the Lord. 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. NCV 3 You may plant seed in your field for six years, and you may trim your vineyards for six years and bring in their fruits. NIV 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. NCV 4 But during the seventh year, you must let the land rest. This will be a special time to honor the Lord. You must not plant seed in your field or trim 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. NCV 5 You must not cut the crops that grow by themselves after harvest, or gather the grapes from your vines that are not trimmed. The land will have a year of rest. 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. NCV 6 "'You may eat whatever the land produces during that year of rest. It will be food for your men and women servants, for your hired workers, and for the foreigners living in your country. 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, NCV 7 It will also be food for your cattle and the wild animals of your land. Whatever the land 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. NCV 8 "'Count off seven groups of seven years, or forty-nine years. During that time there will be seven years of rest for the land. 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. NCV 9 On the Day of Cleansing, you must blow the horn of a male sheep; this will be on the tenth day of the seventh month. You must blow the horn through the whole country. 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. NCV 10 Make the fiftieth year a special year, and announce freedom for all the people living in your country. This time will be called Jubilee. You will each go back to your own property, each to your own family and family group. 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. NCV 11 The fiftieth year will be a special time for you to celebrate. Don't plant seeds, or harvest the crops that grow by themselves, or gather grapes from the vines that are not trimmed. 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. NCV 12 That year is Jubilee; it will be a holy time for you. You may eat only the crops that come from the field. NIV 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields. NCV 13 In the year of Jubilee you each must go back to your own property. NIV 13 “ ‘In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to their own property. NCV 14 "'If you sell your land to your neighbor, or if you buy land from your neighbor, don't cheat each other. NIV 14 “ ‘If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land from them, do not take advantage of each other. NCV 15 If you want to buy your neighbor's land, count the number of years since the last Jubilee, and use that number to decide the right price. If your neighbor sells the land to you, count the number of years left for harvesting crops, and use that number to decide the right price. 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. NCV 16 If there are many years, the price will be high. But if there are only a few years, lower the price, because your neighbor is really selling only a few crops to you. 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. NCV 17 You must not cheat each other, but you must respect your God. I am the Lord your God. NIV 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God. NCV 18 "'Remember my laws and rules, and obey them so that you will live safely in the land. NIV 18 “ ‘Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. NCV 19 The land will give good crops to you, and you will eat as much as you want and live safely in the land. NIV 19 Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety. NCV 20 "'But you might ask, "If we don't plant seeds or gather crops, what will we eat the seventh year?" NIV 20 You may ask, “What will we eat in the seventh year if we do not plant or harvest our crops?” NCV 21 I will send you such a great blessing during the sixth year that the land will produce enough crops for three years. NIV 21 I will send you such a blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for three years. NCV 22 When you plant in the eighth year, you will still be eating from the old crop; you will eat the old crop until the harvest of the ninth year. 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. NCV 23 "'The land really belongs to me, so you can't sell it for all time. You are only foreigners and travelers living for a while on my land. NIV 23 “ ‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers. NCV 24 People might sell their land, but it must always be possible for the family to get its land back. NIV 24 Throughout the land that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land. NCV 25 If a person in your country becomes very poor and sells some land, then close relatives must come and 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. NCV 26 If there is not a close relative to buy the land back, but if the person makes enough money to be able to buy it back, 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, NCV 27 the years must be counted since the land was sold. That number must be used to decide how much the first owner should pay back the one who bought it. Then the land will belong to the first owner again. 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. NCV 28 But if there is not enough money to buy it back, the one who bought it will keep it until the year of Jubilee. During that celebration, the land will go back to the first owner's family. 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. NCV 29 "'If someone sells a home in a walled city, for a full year after it is sold, the person has the right to buy it back. 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. NCV 30 But if the owner does not buy back the house before a full year is over, it will belong to the one who bought it and to his future sons. The house will not go back to the first owner at Jubilee. 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. NCV 31 But houses in small towns without walls are like open country; they can be bought back, and they must be returned to their first owner at Jubilee. 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. NCV 32 "'The Levites may always buy back their houses in the cities that belong to them. NIV 32 “ ‘The Levites always have the right to redeem their houses in the Levitical towns, which they possess. NCV 33 If someone buys a house from a Levite, that house in the Levites' city will again belong to the Levites in the Jubilee. This is because houses in Levite cities belong to the people of Levi; the Israelites gave these cities to them. 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. NCV 34 Also the fields and pastures around the Levites' cities cannot be sold, because those fields belong to the Levites forever. NIV 34 But the pastureland belonging to their towns must not be sold; it is their permanent possession. NCV 35 "'If anyone from your country becomes too poor to support himself, help him to live among you as you would a stranger or foreigner. 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. NCV 36 Do not charge him any interest on money you loan to him, but respect your God; let the poor live among 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. NCV 37 Don't lend him money for interest, and don't try to make a profit from the food he buys. NIV 37 You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit. NCV 38 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to give the land of Canaan to you and to become 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. NCV 39 "'If anyone from your country becomes very poor and sells himself as a slave to you, you must not make him work like a slave. NIV 39 “ ‘If any of your fellow Israelites become poor and sell themselves to you, do not make them work as slaves. NCV 40 He will be like a hired worker and a visitor with you until the year of Jubilee. 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. NCV 41 Then he may leave you, take his children, and go back to his family and the land of his 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. NCV 42 This is because the Israelites are my servants, and I brought them out of slavery in Egypt. They must not become slaves again. NIV 42 Because the Israelites are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt, they must not be sold as slaves. NCV 43 You must not rule this person cruelly, but you must respect your God. NIV 43 Do not rule over them ruthlessly, but fear your God. NCV 44 "'Your men and women slaves must come from other nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. NIV 44 “ ‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. NCV 45 Also you may buy as slaves children from the families of foreigners living in your land. These child slaves will belong to you, 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. NCV 46 and you may even pass them on to your children after you die; you can make them slaves forever. But you must not rule cruelly over your own people, the Israelites. 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. NCV 47 "'Suppose a foreigner or visitor among you becomes rich. If someone in your country becomes so poor that he has to sell himself as a slave to the foreigner living among you or to a member of the 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, NCV 48 the poor person has the right to be bought back and become free. One of his relatives may buy him back: NIV 48 they retain the right of redemption after they have sold themselves. One of their relatives may redeem them: NCV 49 His uncle, his uncle's son, or any one of his close relatives may buy him back. Or, if he gets enough money, he may pay the money to free himself. 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. NCV 50 "'He and the one who bought him must count the time from when he sold himself up to the next year of Jubilee. Use that number to decide the price, because the person really only hired himself out for a certain number of years. 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. NCV 51 If there are still many years before the year of Jubilee, the person must pay back a large part of the price. NIV 51 If many years remain, they must pay for their redemption a larger share of the price paid for them. NCV 52 If there are only a few years left until Jubilee, the person must pay a small part of the first price. NIV 52 If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, they are to compute that and pay for their redemption accordingly. NCV 53 But he will live like a hired person with the foreigner every year; don't let the foreigner rule cruelly over him. 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. NCV 54 "'Even if no one buys him back, at the year of Jubilee, he and his children will become free. 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, NCV 55 This is because the people of Israel are servants to me. They are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt. I am the Lord your 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.
