Leviticus 25:16 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The words, "Ye shall proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof," are more closely defined by the two clauses commencing with היא יובל in Leviticus 25:10 and Leviticus 25:11. "A trumpet-blast shall it be to you, that ye return every one to his own possession, and every one to his family:" a still further explanation is given in Leviticus 25:23-34 and 39-55. This was to be the fruit or effect of the blast, i.e., of the year commencing with the blast, and hence the year was called "the year of liberty," or free year, in Ezekiel 46:17. יובל, from יבל to flow with a rushing noise, does not mean jubilation or the time of jubilation (Ges., Kn., and others); but wherever it is not applied to the year of jubilee, it signifies only the loud blast of a trumpet (Exodus 19:13; Joshua 6:5). This meaning also applies here in Leviticus 25:10, Leviticus 25:11 and Leviticus 25:12; whilst in Leviticus 25:15, Leviticus 25:28, Leviticus 25:30, Leviticus 25:31, Leviticus 25:33, Leviticus 27:18, and Numbers 36:4, it is used as an abbreviated expression for יובל שׁנת, the year of the trumpet-blast.
