Leviticus 25

CJB 1 ADONAI spoke to Moshe on Mount Sinai; he said, NIV 1 The LORD said to Moses at Mount Sinai, CJB 2 "Tell the people of Isra'el, 'When you enter the land I am giving you, the land itself is to observe a Shabbat rest for ADONAI. 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. CJB 3 Six years you will sow your field; six years you will prune your grapevines and gather their produce. NIV 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops. CJB 4 But in the seventh year is to be a Shabbat of complete rest for the land, a Shabbat for ADONAI; you will neither sow your field nor prune your grapevines. 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. CJB 5 You are not to harvest what grows by itself from the seeds left by your previous harvest, and you are not to gather the grapes of your untended vine; it is to be 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. CJB 6 But what the land produces during the year of Shabbat will be food for all of you - you, your servant, your maid, your employee, anyone living near 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, CJB 7 your livestock and the wild animals on your land; everything the land produces may be used for food. NIV 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten. CJB 8 "'You are to count seven Shabbats of years, seven times seven years, that is, 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. CJB 9 Then, on the tenth day of the seventh month, on Yom-Kippur, you are to sound a blast on the shofar; you are to sound the shofar all through your 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. CJB 10 and you are to consecrate the fiftieth year, proclaiming freedom throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It will be a yovel for you; you will return everyone to the land he owns, and everyone is to return to his family. 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. CJB 11 That fiftieth year will be a yovel for you; in that year you are not to sow, harvest what grows by itself or gather the grapes of untended vines; 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. CJB 12 because it is a yovel. It will be holy for you; whatever the fields produce will be food for all of you. NIV 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields. CJB 13 In this year of yovel, every one of you is to return to the land he owns. NIV 13 “ ‘In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to their own property. CJB 14 "'If you sell anything to your neighbor or buy anything from him, neither of you is to exploit the 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. CJB 15 Rather, you are to take into account the number of years after the yovel when you buy land from your neighbor, and he is to sell to you according to the number of years crops will be raised. 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. CJB 16 If the number of years remaining is large, you will raise the price; if few years remain, you will lower it; because what he is really selling you is the number of crops to be produced. 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. CJB 17 Thus you are not to take advantage of each other, but you are to fear your God; for I am ADONAI your God. NIV 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God. CJB 18 "'Rather, you are to keep my regulations and rulings and act accordingly. If you do, you will live securely in the land. NIV 18 “ ‘Follow my decrees and be careful to obey my laws, and you will live safely in the land. CJB 19 The land will yield its produce, you will eat until you have enough, and you will live there securely. NIV 19 Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety. CJB 20 "'If you ask, "If we aren't allowed to sow seed or harvest what our land produces, what are we going to 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?” CJB 21 then I will order my blessing on you during the sixth year, so that the land brings forth enough produce for all three years. NIV 21 I will send you such a blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for three years. CJB 22 The eighth year you will sow seed but eat the the old, stored produce until the ninth year; that is, until the produce of the eighth year comes in, you will eat the old, stored food. 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. CJB 23 "'The land is not to be sold in perpetuity, because the land belongs to me -you are only foreigners and temporary residents with me. NIV 23 “ ‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers. CJB 24 Therefore, when you sell your property, you must include the right of redemption. NIV 24 Throughout the land that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land. CJB 25 That is, if one of you becomes poor and sells some of his property, his next-of-kin can come and buy back what his relative sold. 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. CJB 26 If the seller has no one to redeem it but becomes rich enough to redeem it himself, 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, CJB 27 he will calculate the number of years the land was sold for, refund the excess to its buyer, and return to his property. 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. CJB 28 If he hasn't sufficient means to get it back himself, then what he sold will remain in the hands of the buyer until the year of yovel; in the yovel the buyer will vacate it and the seller return to his property. 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. CJB 29 "'If someone sells a dwelling in a walled city, he has one year after the date of sale in which to redeem it. For a full year he will have the right of redemption; 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. CJB 30 but if he has not redeemed the dwelling in the walled city within the year, then title in perpetuity passes to the buyer through all his generations; it will not revert in the yovel. 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. CJB 31 However, houses in villages not surrounded by walls are to be dealt with like the fields in the countryside - they may be redeemed [before the yovel], and they revert in the yovel. 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. CJB 32 "'Concerning the cities of the L'vi'im and the houses in the cities they possess, the L'vi'im are to have a permanent right of redemption. NIV 32 “ ‘The Levites always have the right to redeem their houses in the Levitical towns, which they possess. CJB 33 If someone purchases a house from one of the L'vi'im, then the house he sold in the city where he owns property will still revert to him in the yovel; because the houses in the cities of the L'vi'im are their tribe's possession among the people of Isra'el. 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. CJB 34 The fields in the open land around their cities may not be sold, because that is their permanent possession. NIV 34 But the pastureland belonging to their towns must not be sold; it is their permanent possession. CJB 35 "'If a member of your people has become poor, so that he can't support himself among you, you are to assist him as you would a foreigner or a temporary resident, so that he can continue living with 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. CJB 36 Do not charge him interest or otherwise profit from him, but fear your God, so that your brother can continue living with 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. CJB 37 Do not take interest when you loan him money or take a profit when you sell him food. NIV 37 You must not lend them money at interest or sell them food at a profit. CJB 38 I am ADONAI your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt in order to give you the land of Kena'an and 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. CJB 39 "'If a member of your people has become poor among you and sells himself to you, do not make him 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. CJB 40 Rather, you are to treat him like an employee or a tenant; he will work for you until the year of yovel. 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. CJB 41 Then he will leave you, he and his children with him, and return to his own family and regain possession of his ancestral land. 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. CJB 42 For they are my slaves, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; therefore they are not to be sold as slaves. NIV 42 Because the Israelites are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt, they must not be sold as slaves. CJB 43 Do not treat him harshly, but fear your God. NIV 43 Do not rule over them ruthlessly, but fear your God. CJB 44 "'Concerning the men and women you may have as slaves: you are to buy men- and women-slaves from the nations surrounding you. NIV 44 “ ‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. CJB 45 You may also buy the children of foreigners living with you and members of their families born in your land; you may own these. 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. CJB 46 You may also bequeath them to your children to own; from these groups you may take your slaves forever. But as far as your brothers the people of Isra'el are concerned, you are not to treat each other 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. CJB 47 "'If a foreigner living with you has grown rich, and a member of your people has become poor and sells himself to this foreigner living with 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, CJB 48 he may be redeemed after he has been sold. One of his brothers may redeem him; NIV 48 they retain the right of redemption after they have sold themselves. One of their relatives may redeem them: CJB 49 or his uncle or his uncle's son may redeem him; or any near relative of his may redeem him; or, if he becomes rich, he may redeem 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. CJB 50 He will calculate with the person who bought him the time from the year he sold himself to him to the year of yovel; and the amount to be paid will be according to the number of years and his time at an employee's wage. 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. CJB 51 If many years remain, according to them will he refund the amount for his redemption from the amount he was bought for. NIV 51 If many years remain, they must pay for their redemption a larger share of the price paid for them. CJB 52 If there remain only a few years until the year of yovel, then he will calculate with him; according to his years will he refund the amount for his redemption. NIV 52 If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, they are to compute that and pay for their redemption accordingly. CJB 53 He will be like a worker hired year by year. You will see to it that he is not treated 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. CJB 54 "'If he has not been redeemed by any of these procedures, nevertheless he will go free in the year of yovel -he and his children with him. 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, CJB 55 For to me the people of Isra'el are slaves; they are my slaves whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; I am ADONAI 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.
