And Yahweh spoke to Moses in mount Sinai, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When you come into the land which I will give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath to Yahweh. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in the fruits of it; 4 but in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to Yahweh: you shall neither sow your field, nor prune your vineyard. 5 That which grows of itself of your harvest you shall not reap, and the grapes of your undressed vine you shall not gather: it shall be a year of solemn rest for the land. 6 And the sabbath of the land shall be for food for you; for you, and for your servant and for your maid, and for your hired servant and for your stranger, who sojourns with you. 7 And for your cattle, and for the beasts that are in your land, shall all the increase of it be for food.
8 And you shall number seven sabbaths of years to you, seven times seven years; and there shall be unto you the days of seven sabbaths of years, even forty and nine years. 9 Then shall you send abroad the loud trumpet on the tenth day of the seventh month; in the day of atonement you shall send abroad the trumpet throughout all your land. 10 And you shall hallow the fiftieth year return, and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants of it: it shall be a jubilee unto you; and you shall return every man to his possession, and you shall every man to his family. 11 A jubilee shall that fiftieth year be to you: you shall not sow, neither reap that which grows of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of the undressed vines. 12 For it is a jubilee; it shah be holy to you: you shall eat the increase of it out of the field.
13 In this year of jubilee you shall return every man to his possession. 14 And if you sell anything to your neighbor, or buy of your neighbor’s hand, you shall not wrong one another. 15 According to the number of years after the jubilee you shall buy of your neighbor, and according to the number of years of the crops he shall sell to you. 16 According to the multitude of the years you shall increase the price of it, and according to the fewness of the years you shall diminish the price of it; for the number of the crops does he sell to you. 17 And you shall not wrong one another; but you shall fear your Elohim: for I am Yahweh your Elohim.
18 Therefore you shall do my statutes, and keep my ordinances and do them; and you shall dwell in the land in safety. 19 And the land shall yield its fruit, and you shall eat your fill, and dwell in it in safety. 20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase; 21 then I will command my blessing on you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for the three years. 22 And you shall sow the eighth year, and eat of the fruits, the old store; until the ninth year, until its fruits come in, you shall eat the old store.
23 And the land shall not be sold in perpetuity; for the land is mine: for you are strangers and sojourners with me. 24 And in all the land of your possession you shall grant a redemption for the land. 25 If your brother has become poor, and sells some of his possession, then shall his kinsman that is next to him come, and shall redeem that which his brother has sold. 26 And if a man has no one to redeem it, and he has grown rich and finds sufficient to redeem it; 27 then let him reckon the years of the sale of it, and restore the excess to the man to whom he sold it; and he shall return to his possession. 28 But if he is not able to get it back for himself, then that which he has sold shall remain in the hand of him that has bought it until the year of jubilee: and in the jubilee it shall go out, and he shall return to his possession.
29 And if a man sells a dwelling-house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; for a full year shall he have the right of redemption. 30 And if it is not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be made sure in perpetuity to him that bought it, throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubilee. 31 But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be reckoned with the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubilee. 32 Nevertheless the cities of the Levites, the houses of the cities of their possession, may the Levites redeem at any time. 33 And if one of the Levites redeems, then the house that was sold, and the city in his possession, shall go out in the jubilee; for the houses of the cities of the Levites are their possession among the children of Israel. 34 But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.
35 And if your brother has grown poor, and his hand fails with you; then you shall uphold him: as a stranger and a sojourner shall he live with you. 36 Take no interest of him or increase, but fear your Elohim; that your brother may live with you. 37 You shall not give him your money on interest, nor give him your food for increase. 38 I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your Elohim.
39 And if your brother has grown poor with you, and sells himself to you; you shall not make him to serve as a bond-servant. 40 As a hired servant, and as a sojourner, he shall be with you; he shall serve with you to the year of jubilee: 41 then he shall go out from you, he and his children with him, and shall return to his own family, and to the possession of his fathers shall he return. 42 For they are my servants, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold as bondmen. 43 You shall not rule over him with rigor, but shall fear your Elohim. 44 And as for your bondmen, and your bondmaids, whom you shall have; of the nations that are round about you, of them shall you buy bondmen and bondmaids. 45 Moreover of the children of the strangers that sojourn among you, of them you shall buy, and of their families that are with you, which they have begotten in your land: and they shall be your possession. 46 And you shall make them an inheritance for your children after you, to hold for a possession; of them shall you take your bondmen forever: but over your brethren the children of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with rigor.
47 And if a stranger or sojourner with you has grown rich, and your brother has grown poor beside him, and sells himself to the stranger or sojourner with you, or to the stock of the stranger’s family; 48 after he is sold he may be redeemed: one of his brethren may redeem him;
49 or his uncle, or his uncle’s son, may redeem him, or any that is near of kin to him of his family may redeem him; or if he has grown rich, he may redeem himself. 50 And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he sold himself to him to the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale shall be according unto the number of years; according to the time of a hired servant shall he be with him. 51 If there are still many years, according to them he shall give back the price of his redemption out of the money that he was bought for. 52 And if there remains but few years to the year of jubilee, then he shall reckon with him; according to his years shall he give back the price of his redemption. 53 As a servant hired year by year shall he be with him: he shall not rule with rigor over him in your sight. 54 And if he is not redeemed by these means, then he Shall go out in the year of jubilee, he, and his children with him. 55 For to me the children of Israel are servants; they are my servants whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt: I am Yahweh your Elohim.
You shall make no idols, neither shall you rear up a graven image, or a pillar, neither shall you place any figured stone in your land, to bow down to it: for I am Yahweh your Elohim. 2 You shall keep my sabbaths, and reverence my sanctuary: I am Yahweh.
3 If you walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; 4 then I will give your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. 5 And your threshing shall reach to the vintage, and the vintage shall reach to the sowing time; and you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. 6 And I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will cause evil beasts to cease out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. 7 And you shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 And five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall chase ten thousand; and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 And I will have respect to you, and make you fruitful, and multiply you, and will establish my covenant with you. 10 And you shall eat old store long kept, and you shah bring forth the old because of the new. 11 And I will set my tabernacle among you: and my soul shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you, and will be your Elohim, and you shall be my people. 13 I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that you shall not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bars of your yoke, and made you go upright.
14 But if you will not listen to me, and will not do all these commandments; 15 and if you shall reject my statutes, and if your soul abhors my ordinances, so that you will not do all my commandments, but break my covenant; 16 I also will do this to you: I will appoint terror over you, even consumption and fever, that shall consume the eyes, and consume the soul; and you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. 17 And I will set my face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies: they that hate you shall rule over you; and you shall flee when none pursues you. 18 And if you will not yet for these things listen to me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. 19 And I will break the pride of your power: and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as bronze; 20 and your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruit.
21 And if you walk contrary to me, and will not listen to me, I will bring seven times more plagues on you according to your sins. 22 And I will send the beast of the field among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number; and your ways shall become desolate.
23 And if by these things you will not be reformed to me, but will walk contrary to me; 24 then I will also walk contrary to you; and I will afflict you, even I, seven times for your sins. 25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute the vengeance of the covenant; and you shall be gathered together within your cities: and I will send the pestilence among you; and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy. 26 When I break your staff of bread, ten women shall bake your bread in one oven, and they shall deliver your bread again by weight: and you shall eat, and not be satisfied.
27 And if you will not for all this listen to me, but walk contrary to me; 28 then I will walk contrary to you in wrath; and I also will punish you seven times for your sins. 29 And you shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall you eat. 30 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your sun-images, and cast your dead bodies on the bodies of your idols; and my soul shall abhor you. 31 And I will make your cities a waste, and will bring your sanctuaries to desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. 32 And I will bring the land into desolation; and your enemies that dwell in it shall be astonished at it. 33 And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will draw out the sword after you: and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste.
34 Then shall the land enjoy its sabbaths, as long as it lies desolate, and you are in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy its sabbaths. 35 As long as it lies desolate it shall have rest, even the rest which it had not in your sabbaths, when you dwelt on it. 36 And as for them that are left of you, I will send a faintness into their heart in the lands of their enemies: and the sound of a driven leaf shall chase them; and they shall flee, as one flees from the sword; and they shall fall when none pursues. 37 And they shall stumble one upon another, as it were before the sword, when none pursues: and you shall have no power to stand before your enemies. 38 And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up. 39 And they that are left of you shall pine away in their iniquity in your enemies’ lands; and also in the iniquities of their fathers shall they pine away with them.
40 And they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, in their trespass which they trespassed against me, and also that, because they walked contrary to me, 41 I also walked contrary to them, and brought them into the land of their enemies: if then their uncircumcised heart is humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity; 42 then will I remember my covenant with Jacob; and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land. 43 The land also shall be left by them, and shall enjoy its sabbaths, while it lies desolate without them: and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity; because, even because they rejected my ordinances, and their soul abhorred my statutes. 44 And yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them; for I am Yahweh their Elohim; 45 but I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their Elohim: I am Yahweh.
46 These are the statutes and ordinances and laws, which Yahweh made between him and the children of Israel in mount Sinai by Moses.
And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When a man shall accomplish a vow, the persons shall be for Yahweh by your estimation. 3 And your estimation shall be of the male from twenty years old even to sixty years old, even your estimation shall be fifty shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary. 4 And if it is a female, then your estimation shall be thirty shekels. 5 And if it is from five years old to twenty years old, then your estimation shall be of the male twenty shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 6 And if it is from a month old to five years old, then your estimation shall be of the male five shekels of silver, and for the female your estimation shall be three shekels of silver. 7 And if it is from sixty years old and upward; if it is a male, then your estimation shall be fifteen shekels, and for the female ten shekels. 8 But if he is poorer than your estimation, then he shall be set before the priest, and the priest shall value him; according to the ability of him that vowed shall the priest value him.
9 And if it is a beast, of which men offer an oblation to Yahweh, all that any man gives of such to Yahweh shall be holy. 10 He shall not alter it, nor change it, a good for a bad, or a bad for a good: and if he shall at all change beast for beast, then both it and that for which it is changed shall be holy. 11 And if it is any unclean beast, of which they do not offer an oblation to Yahweh, then he shall set the beast before the priest; 12 and the priest shall value it, whether it is good or bad: as you the priest value it, so shall it be. 13 But if he will indeed redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of it to your estimation.
14 And when a man shall sanctify his house to be holy to Yahweh, then the priest shall estimate it, whether it is good or bad: as the priest shall estimate it, so shall it stand. 15 And if he that sanctified it will redeem his house, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation to it, and it shall be his.
16 And if a man shall sanctify to Yahweh part of the field of his possession, then your estimation shall be according to the sowing of it: the sowing of a homer of barley shall be valued at fifty shekels of silver. 17 If he sanctifies his field from the year of jubilee, according to your estimation it shall stand. 18 But if he sanctifies his field after the jubilee, then the priest shall reckon to him the money according to the years that remain to the year of jubilee; and a reduction shall be made from your estimation. 19 And if he that sanctified the field will indeed redeem it, then he shall add the fifth part of the money of your estimation to it, and it shall be assured to him. 20 And if he will not redeem the field, or if he has sold the field to another man, it shall not be redeemed any more: 21 but the field, when it goes out in the jubilee, shall be holy to Yahweh, as a field devoted; the possession of it shall be the priest’s. 22 And if he sanctifies to Yahweh a field which he has bought, which is not of the field of his possession; 23 then the priest shall reckon to him the worth of your estimation to the year of jubilee: and he shall give your estimation in that day, as a holy thing to Yahweh. 24 In the year of jubilee the field shall return to him of whom it was bought, even to him to whom the possession of the land belongs. 25 And all your estimations shall be according to the shekel of the sanctuary: twenty gerahs shall be the shekel.
26 Only the firstling among beasts, which is made a firstling to Yahweh, no man shall sanctify it; whether it is ox or sheep, it is Yahweh’s. 27 And if it is of an unclean beast, then he shall ransom it according to your estimation, and shall add to it the fifth part of it: or if it is not redeemed, then it shall be sold according to your estimation.
28 However, no devoted thing, that a man shall devote to Yahweh of all that he has, whether of man or beast, or of the field of his possession, shall be sold or redeemed: every devoted thing is most holy to Yahweh. 29 No one devoted, that shall be devoted from among men, shall be ransomed; he shall surely be put to death.
30 And all the tithe of the land whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is Yahweh’s: it is holy to Yahweh. 31 And if a man will redeem any of his tithe, he shall add to it the fifth part of it. 32 And all the tithe of the herd or the flock whatever passes under the rod, the tenth shall be holy to Yahweh. 33 He shall not search whether it is good or bad, neither shall he change it: and that for which it is changed shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
34 These are the commandments, which Yahweh commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.
