Leviticus 25

BBE 1 And the Lord said to Moses on Mount Sinai, OJB 1 5 And Hashem spoke unto Moshe in Mt. Sinai, saying, BBE 2 Say to the children of Israel, When you come into the land which I will give you, let the land keep a Sabbath to the Lord. OJB 2 Speak unto the Bnei Yisroel, and say unto them, When ye come into HaAretz which I give you, then shall HaAretz observe a Shabbos rest unto Hashem. BBE 3 For six years put seed into your land, and for six years give care to your vines and get in the produce of them; OJB 3 Six years thou shalt sow thy sadeh, and six years thou shalt prune thy kerem, and gather in the fruit thereof; BBE 4 But let the seventh year be a Sabbath of rest for the land, a Sabbath to the Lord; do not put seed into your land or have your vines cut. OJB 4 But in the Shanah HaShevi’it shall be a Shabbos Shabbaton unto HaAretz, a Shabbos unto Hashem; thou shalt neither sow thy sadeh, nor prune thy kerem (vineyard). BBE 5 That which comes to growth of itself may not be cut, and the grapes of your uncared-for vines may not be taken off; let it be a year of rest for the land. OJB 5 That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy untended vine; for it is Shnat Shabbaton unto HaAretz. BBE 6 And the Sabbath of the land will give food for you and your man-servant and your woman-servant and those working for payment, and for those of another country who are living among you; OJB 6 And the Shabbos of HaAretz shall be food for you; for thee, and for thy eved, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy toshav (guest) that sojourneth with thee. BBE 7 And for your cattle and the beasts on the land; all the natural increase of the land will be for food. OJB 7 And for thy cattle, and for the wild animal that are in thy land, shall all the tevuah (increase) thereof be to eat. BBE 8 And let seven Sabbaths of years be numbered to you, seven times seven years; even the days of seven Sabbaths of years, that is forty-nine years; OJB 8 And thou shalt count seven Shabbatot of shanim unto thee, seven times seven shanim; and the period of the sheva Shabbatot of shanim shall be unto thee forty and nine shanim. BBE 9 Then let the loud horn be sounded far and wide on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of taking away sin let the horn be sounded through all your land. OJB 9 Then shalt thou cause the shofar to sound a broken blast on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the Yom HaKippurim shall ye make the shofar sound throughout all your land. BBE 10 And let this fiftieth year be kept holy, and say publicly that everyone in the land is free from debt: it is the Jubilee, and every man may go back to his heritage and to his family. OJB 10 And ye shall treat as kadosh the fiftieth year, and proclaim deror (freedom) throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof; it shall be a Yovel (Jubilee) unto you; and ye shall return every man unto the ancestral heritage of his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his mishpochah. BBE 11 Let this fiftieth year be the Jubilee: no seed may be planted, and that which comes to growth of itself may not be cut, and the grapes may not be taken from the uncared-for vines. OJB 11 A Yovel shall that fiftieth year be unto you; ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy untended vine, BBE 12 For it is the Jubilee, and it is holy to you; your food will be the natural increase of the field. OJB 12 For it is the Yovel; it shall be kodesh unto you; ye shall eat the tevuah (increase) thereof out of the sadeh. BBE 13 In this year of Jubilee, let every man go back to his heritage. OJB 13 In this Shnat Yovel ye shall return every man unto his possession. BBE 14 And in the business of trading goods for money, do no wrong to one another. OJB 14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbor, or buyest ought of thy neighbor’s hand, ye shall not take advantage of one another. BBE 15 Let your exchange of goods with your neighbours have relation to the number of years after the year of Jubilee, and the number of times the earth has given her produce. OJB 15 According to the number of shanim after the Yovel thou shalt buy of thy neighbor, and according unto the number of shanim of the tevuot (harvests, increases) he shall sell unto thee. BBE 16 If the number of years is great, the price will be increased, and if the number of years is small, the price will be less, for it is the produce of a certain number of years which the man is giving you. OJB 16 According to the multitude of shanim thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of shanim thou shalt diminish the price of it; for according to the number of the shanim of the tevuot doth he sell unto thee. BBE 17 And do no wrong, one to another, but let the fear of your God be before you; for I am the Lord your God. OJB 17 Ye shall not therefore take advantage of one another; but thou shalt fear Eloheicha: for I am Hashem Eloheichem. BBE 18 So keep my rules and my decisions and do them, and you will be safe in your land. OJB 18 Wherefore ye shall do My chukkot, and be shomer over My mishpatim, and do them; and ye shall dwell in HaAretz in safety. BBE 19 And the land will give her fruit, and you will have food in full measure and be safe in the land. OJB 19 And HaAretz shall yield her pri, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. BBE 20 And if you say, Where will our food come from in the seventh year, when we may not put in seed, or get in the increase OJB 20 And if ye shall say, What shall we eat in the shanah hashevi’it? Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our tevuah; BBE 21 Then I will send my blessing on you in the sixth year, and the land will give fruit enough for three years. OJB 21 Then I will command Birkhati (My Blessing) upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth the tevuah for shalosh hashanim. BBE 22 And in the eighth year you will put in your seed, and get your food from the old stores, till the fruit of the ninth year is ready. OJB 22 And ye shall sow the shanah hasheminit, and eat yet of tevuah yashan (old increase) until the ninth year; until her harvest come in, ye shall eat of the yashan (old). BBE 23 No exchange of land may be for ever, for the land is mine, and you are as my guests, living with me for a time. OJB 23 HaAretz shall not be sold permanently: for HaAretz is Mine, for ye are gerim and toshavim with Me. BBE 24 Wherever there is property in land, the owner is to have the right of getting it back. OJB 24 And in all the eretz of your possession ye shall grant a Geulah for HaAretz. BBE 25 If your brother becomes poor, and has to give up some of his land for money, his nearest relation may come and get back that which his brother has given up. OJB 25 If thy brother become poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and his Go’el HaKarov (Near Kinsman Redeemer) come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold. BBE 26 And if he has no one to get it back for him, and later he himself gets wealth and has enough money to get it back; OJB 26 And if the man does not have for him a Go’el, and himself be able to effect the Geulah, BBE 27 Then let him take into account the years from the time when he gave it up, and make up the loss for the rest of the years to him who took it, and so get back his property. OJB 27 Then let him count the shanim from the sale thereof, and refund the balance unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession. BBE 28 But if he is not able to get it back for himself, then it will be kept by him who gave a price for it, till the year of Jubilee; and in that year it will go back to its first owner and he will have his property again. OJB 28 But if he be not able to restore it to him, then that which is sold shall remain in the hand of him that hath bought it until the Shnat HaYovel; and in the Yovel it shall be returned, and he shall return unto his possession. BBE 29 And if a man gives his house in a walled town for money, he has the right to get it back for the space of a full year after he has given it up. OJB 29 And if a man sell a bais moshav in a walled city, then he retains the right of Geulah a full year after its sale; within a full year may he redeem it. BBE 30 And if he does not get it back by the end of the year, then the house in the town will become the property of him who gave the money for it, and of his children for ever; it will not go from him in the year of Jubilee. OJB 30 And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the bais that is in the walled city shall be established forever to him that bought it throughout his dorot; it shall not return in the Yovel. BBE 31 But houses in small unwalled towns will be the same as property in the country; they may be got back, and they will go back to their owners in the year of Jubilee. OJB 31 But the batim (houses) of the villages which have no chomah (wall) round about them shall be considered as the fields of the country; Geulah shall be for it, and in the Yovel it must return. BBE 32 But the houses in the towns of the Levites may be got back by the Levites at any time. OJB 32 Notwithstanding, the towns of the Levi’im, and the batim (houses) of the towns of their possession, there is a Geulat Olam for the Levi’im. BBE 33 And if a Levite does not give money to get back his property, his house in the town which was exchanged for money will come back to him in the year of Jubilee. For the houses of the towns of the Levites are their property among the children of Israel. OJB 33 And what one will buy from the Levi’im, the bais that was sold, and the town of his possession, shall be released in the year of Yovel; for the batim of the towns of the Levi’im are their possession among the Bnei Yisroel. BBE 34 But the land on the outskirts of their towns may not be exchanged for money, for it is their property for ever. OJB 34 But the sadeh of the open land of their towns may not be sold; for it is their achuzzat olam (perpetual heritage). BBE 35 And if your brother becomes poor and is not able to make a living, then you are to keep him with you, helping him as you would a man from another country who is living among you. OJB 35 And if thy brother become poor, and his hand fails with thee; then thou shalt strengthen him; yea, though he be a ger, or a toshav; that he may live among thee. BBE 36 Take no interest from him, in money or in goods, but have the fear of your God before you, and let your brother make a living among you. OJB 36 Take thou no neshekh of him, or increase; but fear Eloheicha; that thy brother may live among thee. BBE 37 Do not take interest on the money which you let him have or on the food which you give him. OJB 37 Thou shalt not lend him thy kesef at neshekh, nor give him thy food for increase. BBE 38 I am the Lord your God, who took you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, that I might be your God. OJB 38 I am Hashem Eloheichem, which brought you forth out of Eretz Mitzrayim, to give you Eretz Kena’an, and to be Elohim unto you. BBE 39 And if your brother becomes poor and gives himself to you for money, do not make use of him like a servant who is your property; OJB 39 And if thy brother that dwelleth by thee become poor, and be sold unto thee, thou shalt not compel him to do avodat eved; BBE 40 But let him be with you as a servant working for payment, till the year of Jubilee; OJB 40 But as a sakhir, and as a toshav, he shall be among thee, and shall serve thee unto the Shnat HaYovel. BBE 41 Then he will go out from you, he and his children with him, and go back to his family and to the property of his fathers. OJB 41 And then shall he depart from thee, both he and his banim with him, and shall return unto his own mishpochah, and unto the Achuzzat of his Avot shall he return. BBE 42 For they are my servants whom I took out from the land of Egypt; they may not become the property of another. OJB 42 For they are My Eved, which I brought forth out of Eretz Mitzrayim; they shall not be sold in the manner of an eved. BBE 43 Do not be a hard master to him, but have the fear of God before you. OJB 43 Thou shalt not rule over him with rigor; but shalt fear Eloheicha. BBE 44 But you may get servants as property from among the nations round about; from them you may take men-servants and women-servants. OJB 44 Both thy bondmen, and thy bondmaids, which thou shalt have, shall be of the Goyim that are round about you; of them shall ye buy eved and amah. BBE 45 And in addition, you may get, for money, servants from among the children of other nations who are living with you, and from their families which have come to birth in your land; and these will be your property. OJB 45 Moreover of the bnei hatoshavim that do sojourn among you, of them shall ye buy, and of their mishpachot that are among you, which they fathered in your land; and they shall be your possession. BBE 46 And they will be your children's heritage after you, to keep as their property; they will be your servants for ever; but you may not be hard masters to your countrymen, the children of Israel. OJB 46 And ye shall take them as an inheritance for your banim after you, to inherit them for a possession; they shall be your bondmen forever; but over your brethren, the Bnei Yisroel, ye shall not rule one over another with rigor. BBE 47 And if one from another nation living among you gets wealth, and your countryman, at his side, becomes poor and gives himself for money to the man from another nation or to one of his family; OJB 47 And if a ger or toshav grow rich by thee, and thy brother that dwelleth by him grow poor, and sell himself unto the foreigner among thee, or to the eker (member) mishpachat of the ger; BBE 48 After he has given himself he has the right to be made free, for a price, by one of his brothers, OJB 48 After that he is sold, his Geulah remains; one of his brethren may redeem him, BBE 49 Or his father's brother, or the son of his father's brother, or any near relation; or if he gets money, he may make himself free. OJB 49 Either his dod, or ben dod of him, may redeem him, or any that is near of kin unto him of his mishpachat may redeem him; or if he be able, he may redeem himself. BBE 50 And let the years be numbered from the time when he gave himself to his owner till the year of Jubilee, and the price given for him will be in relation to the number of years, on the scale of the payment of a servant. OJB 50 And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the Shnat HaYovel; and the price of his release shall be based on the number of shanim, according to the value of a sakhir’s pay shall it be with him. BBE 51 If there is still a long time, he will give back, on account of it, a part of the price which was given for him. OJB 51 If there be yet many shanim remaining, according unto them he shall give for his Geulah the kesef that he was bought for. BBE 52 And if there is only a short time, he will take account of it with his master, and in relation to the number of years he will give back the price of making him free. OJB 52 And if there remain but few shanim unto the Shnat HaYovel, then he shall count that, and according unto his shanim shall he pay the price of his Geulah. BBE 53 And he will be with him as a servant working for payment year by year; his master is not to be cruel to him before your eyes. OJB 53 And as a sakhir hired shanah b’shanah shall he be with him; and the other shall not rule with rigor over him in thy sight. BBE 54 And if he is not made free in this way, he will go out in the year of Jubilee, he and his children with him. OJB 54 And if he be not redeemed in these shanim, then he shall be released in the Shnat HaYovel, both he, and his banim with him. BBE 55 For the children of Israel are servants to me; they are my servants whom I took out of the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. OJB 55 For unto Me the Bnei Yisroel are avadim; they are My avadim whom I brought forth out of Eretz Mitzrayim: I am Hashem Eloheichem.
