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.2“Speak to the people of Israel and say to them, When you come into the land that I give you, the land shall keep a Sabbath to the LORD.2"Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, 'When you come into the land which I shall give you, then the land shall have a sabbath to the LORD.2Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.2Speak to the Israelites and tell them: When you enter the land I am giving you, the land will observe a Sabbath to the LORD.
3For six years sow your fields, and for six years prune your vineyards and gather their crops.3For six years you shall sow your field, and for six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its fruits,3'Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its crop,3Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;3You may sow your field for six years, and you may prune your vineyard and gather its produce for six years.
4But 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.4but in the seventh year there shall be a Sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a Sabbath to the LORD. You shall not sow your field or prune your vineyard.4but during the seventh year the land shall have a sabbath rest, a sabbath to the LORD; you shall not sow your field nor prune your vineyard.4But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.4But there will be a Sabbath of complete rest for the land in the seventh year, a Sabbath to the LORD: you are not to sow your field or prune your vineyard.

5Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of rest.5You shall not reap what grows of itself in your harvest, or gather the grapes of your undressed vine. It shall be a year of solemn rest for the land.5'Your harvest's aftergrowth you shall not reap, and your grapes of untrimmed vines you shall not gather; the land shall have a sabbatical year.5That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed: for it is a year of rest unto the land.5You are not to reap what grows by itself from your crop, or harvest the grapes of your untended vines. It must be a year of complete rest for the land.
6Whatever 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,6The Sabbath of the land shall provide food for you, for yourself and for your male and female slaves and for your hired worker and the sojourner who lives with you,6All of you shall have the sabbath products of the land for food; yourself, and your male and female slaves, and your hired man and your foreign resident, those who live as aliens with you.6And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you; for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee,6Whatever the land produces during the Sabbath year can be food for you--for yourself, your male or female slave, and the hired hand or foreigner who stays with you.
7as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten.7and for your cattle and for the wild animals that are in your land: all its yield shall be for food.7'Even your cattle and the animals that are in your land shall have all its crops to eat.7And for thy cattle, and for the beast that are in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.7All of its growth may serve as food for your livestock and the wild animals in your land."

The Year of Jubilee

9Then have the trumpet sounded everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land.9Then you shall sound the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month. On the Day of Atonement you shall sound the trumpet throughout all your land.9'You shall then sound a ram's horn abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land.9Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.9Then you are to sound a trumpet loudly in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month; you will sound it throughout your land on the Day of Atonement.
10Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants.

It shall be a jubilee for you, when each of you shall return to his property and each of you shall return to his clan.10'You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.10And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.10You are to consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim freedom in the land for all its inhabitants. It will be your Jubilee, when each of you is to return to his property and each of you to his clan.
11The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines.11That fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of itself nor gather the grapes from the undressed vines.11You shall have the fiftieth year as a jubilee; you shall not sow, nor reap its aftergrowth, nor gather in from its untrimmed vines.11A jubile 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 vine undressed.11The fiftieth year will be your Jubilee; you are not to sow, reap what grows by itself, or harvest its untended vines.

Return of Property

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
13"'In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to their own property.13“In this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his property.13'On this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his own property.13In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.13In this Year of Jubilee, each of you will return to his property.
14"'If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land from them, do not take advantage of each other.14And if you make a sale to your neighbor or buy from your neighbor, you shall not wrong one another.14'If you make a sale, moreover, to your friend or buy from your friend's hand, you shall not wrong one another.14And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour's hand, ye shall not oppress one another:14If you make a sale to your neighbor or a purchase from him, do not cheat one another.
15You 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.15You shall pay your neighbor according to the number of years after the jubilee, and he shall sell to you according to the number of years for crops.15'Corresponding to the number of years after the jubilee, you shall buy from your friend; he is to sell to you according to the number of years of crops.15According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:15You are to make the purchase from your neighbor based on the number of years since the last Jubilee. He is to sell to you based on the number of remaining harvest years.
16When 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.16If the years are many, you shall increase the price, and if the years are few, you shall reduce the price, for it is the number of the crops that he is selling to you.16In proportion to the extent of the years you shall increase its price, and in proportion to the fewness of the years you shall diminish its price, for it is a number of crops he is selling to you.16According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.16You are to increase its price in proportion to a greater amount of years, and decrease its price in proportion to a lesser amount of years, because what he is selling to you is a number of harvests.
17Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the LORD your God.17You shall not wrong one another, but you shall fear your God, for I am the LORD your God.17'So you shall not wrong one another, but you shall fear your God; for I am the LORD your God.17Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am the LORD your God.17You are not to cheat one another, but fear your God, for I am Yahweh your God."

The Blessing of Obedience

19Then the land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and live there in safety.19The land will yield its fruit, and you will eat your fill and dwell in it securely.19'Then the land will yield its produce, so that you can eat your fill and live securely on it.19And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety.19Then the land will yield its fruit, so that you can eat, be satisfied, and live securely in the land.
20You may ask, "What will we eat in the seventh year if we do not plant or harvest our crops?"20And if you say, ‘What shall we eat in the seventh year, if we may not sow or gather in our crop?’20'But if you say, "What are we going to eat on the seventh year if we do not sow or gather in our crops?"20And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase:20If you wonder: 'What will we eat in the seventh year if we don't sow or gather our produce?'
21I will send you such a blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for three years.21I will command my blessing on you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years.21then I will so order My blessing for you in the sixth year that it will bring forth the crop for three years.21Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years.21I will appoint My blessing for you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years.
22While 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.22When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating some of the old crop; you shall eat the old until the ninth year, when its crop arrives.22When you are sowing the eighth year, you can still eat old things from the crop, eating the old until the ninth year when its crop comes in.22And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store.22When you sow in the eighth year, you will be eating from the previous harvest. You will be eating this until the ninth year when its harvest comes in."

The Law of Redemption

23"'The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers.23“The land shall not be sold in perpetuity, for the land is mine. For you are strangers and sojourners with me.23The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me.23The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.23The land is not to be permanently sold because it is Mine, and you are only foreigners and temporary residents on My land.
24Throughout the land that you hold as a possession, you must provide for the redemption of the land.24And in all the country you possess, you shall allow a redemption of the land.24'Thus for every piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land.24And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.24You are to allow the redemption of any land you occupy.
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.25“If your brother becomes poor and sells part of his property, then his nearest redeemer shall come and redeem what his brother has sold.25'If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold.25If thy brother be waxen poor, and hath sold away some of his possession, and if any of his kin come to redeem it, then shall he redeem that which his brother sold.25If your brother becomes destitute and sells part of his property, his nearest relative may come and redeem what his brother has sold.
26If, however, there is no one to redeem it for them but later on they prosper and acquire sufficient means to redeem it themselves,26If a man has no one to redeem it and then himself becomes prosperous and finds sufficient means to redeem it,26'Or in case a man has no kinsman, but so recovers his means as to find sufficient for its redemption,26And if the man have none to redeem it, and himself be able to redeem it;26If a man has no family redeemer, but he prospers and obtains enough to redeem his land,

27they 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.27let him calculate the years since he sold it and pay back the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and then return to his property.27then he shall calculate the years since its sale and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and so return to his property.27Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the overplus unto the man to whom he sold it; that he may return unto his possession.27he may calculate the years since its sale, repay the balance to the man he sold it to, and return to his property.
28But 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.28But if he does not have sufficient means to recover it, then what he sold shall remain in the hand of the buyer until the year of jubilee. In the jubilee it shall be released, and he shall return to his property.28'But if he has not found sufficient means to get it back for himself, then what he has sold shall remain in the hands of its purchaser until the year of jubilee; but at the jubilee it shall revert, that he may return to his property.28But 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 year of jubile: and in the jubile it shall go out, and he shall return unto his possession.28But if he cannot obtain enough to repay him, what he sold will remain in the possession of its purchaser until the Year of Jubilee. It is to be released at the Jubilee, so that he may return to his property."
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.29“If a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, he may redeem it within a year of its sale. For a full year he shall have the right of redemption.29'Likewise, if a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, then his redemption right remains valid until a full year from its sale; his right of redemption lasts a full year.29And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it.29If a man sells a residence in a walled city, his right of redemption will last until a year has passed after its sale; his right of redemption will last a year.
30If 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.30If it is not redeemed within a full year, then the house in the walled city shall belong in perpetuity to the buyer, throughout his generations; it shall not be released in the jubilee.30'But if it is not bought back for him within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city passes permanently to its purchaser throughout his generations; it does not revert in the jubilee.30And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubile.30If it is not redeemed by the end of a full year, then the house in the walled city is permanently transferred to its purchaser throughout his generations. It is not to be released on the Jubilee.
31But 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.31But the houses of the villages that have no wall around them shall be classified with the fields of the land. They may be redeemed, and they shall be released in the jubilee.31'The houses of the villages, however, which have no surrounding wall shall be considered as open fields; they have redemption rights and revert in the jubilee.31But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile.31But houses in villages that have no walls around them are to be classified as open fields. The right to redeem such houses stays in effect, and they are to be released at the Jubilee."

32"'The Levites always have the right to redeem their houses in the Levitical towns, which they possess.32As for the cities of the Levites, the Levites may redeem at any time the houses in the cities they possess.32'As for cities of the Levites, the Levites have a permanent right of redemption for the houses of the cities which are their possession.32Notwithstanding the cities of the Levites, and the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time.32Concerning the Levitical cities, the Levites always have the right to redeem houses in the cities they possess.
33So 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.33And if one of the Levites exercises his right of redemption, then the house that was sold in a city they possess shall be released in the jubilee. For the houses in the cities of the Levites are their possession among the people of Israel.33'What, therefore, belongs to the Levites may be redeemed and a house sale in the city of this possession reverts in the jubilee, for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the sons of Israel.33And if a man purchase of the Levites, then the house that was sold, and the city of his possession, shall go out in the year of jubile: for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel.33Whatever property one of the Levites can redeem--a house sold in a city they possess--must be released at the Jubilee, because the houses in the Levitical cities are their possession among the Israelites.
34But the pastureland belonging to their towns must not be sold; it is their permanent possession.34But the fields of pastureland belonging to their cities may not be sold, for that is their possession forever.34'But pasture fields of their cities shall not be sold, for that is their perpetual possession.34But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.34The open pastureland around their cities may not be sold, for it is their permanent possession."

The price for their release is to be based on the rate paid to a hired worker for that number of years.50He shall calculate with his buyer from the year when he sold himself to him until the year of jubilee, and the price of his sale shall vary with the number of years. The time he was with his owner shall be rated as the time of a hired worker.50He then with his purchaser shall calculate from the year when he sold himself to him up to the year of jubilee; and the price of his sale shall correspond to the number of years. It is like the days of a hired man that he shall be with him.50And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him unto the year of jubile: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him.50The one who purchased him is to calculate the time from the year he sold himself to him until the Year of Jubilee. The price of his sale will be determined by the number of years. It will be set for him like the daily wages of a hired hand.

51If many years remain, they must pay for their redemption a larger share of the price paid for them.51If there are still many years left, he shall pay proportionately for his redemption some of his sale price.51'If there are still many years, he shall refund part of his purchase price in proportion to them for his own redemption;51If there be yet many years behind, according unto them he shall give again the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for.51If many years are still left, he must pay his redemption price in proportion to them based on his purchase price.
52If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, they are to compute that and pay for their redemption accordingly.52If there remain but a few years until the year of jubilee, he shall calculate and pay for his redemption in proportion to his years of service.52and if few years remain until the year of jubilee, he shall so calculate with him. In proportion to his years he is to refund the amount for his redemption.52And if there remain but few years unto the year of jubile, then he shall count with him, and according unto his years shall he give him again the price of his redemption.52If only a few years remain until the Year of Jubilee, he will calculate and pay the price of his redemption in proportion to his remaining years.
53They 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.53He shall treat him as a worker hired year by year. He shall not rule ruthlessly over him in your sight.53'Like a man hired year by year he shall be with him; he shall not rule over him with severity in your sight.53And as a yearly hired servant shall he be with him: and the other shall not rule with rigour over him in thy sight.53He will stay with him like a man hired year by year. A foreign owner is not to rule over him harshly in your sight.
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,54And if he is not redeemed by these means, then he and his children with him shall be released in the year of jubilee.54Even if he is not redeemed by these means, he shall still go out in the year of jubilee, he and his sons with him.54And if he be not redeemed in these years, then he shall go out in the year of jubile, both he, and his children with him.54If he is not redeemed in any of these ways, he and his children are to be released at the Year of Jubilee.
55for the Israelites belong to me as servants. They are my servants, whom I brought out of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.55For it is to me that the people of Israel are servants. They are my servants whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.55'For the sons of Israel are My servants; they are My servants whom I brought out from the land of Egypt. I am the LORD your God.55For unto me the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.55For the Israelites are My slaves. They are My slaves that I brought out of the land of Egypt; I am Yahweh your God."
