Text Commentary side-by-side

25, 5ff :

As long as the produce of the sabbatical year remains on the field, it remains available to everyone; cf v 12 . In Ex 23, 10f the poor and the wild beasts that have no other source of nourishment are alone mentioned.

25, 10 :

Fiftieth year: to arrive at this number, the preceding year of jubilee is included in the count, and therefore this is more exactly the forty‐ninth year, the seventh sabbatical year. Liberty: Israelite slaves were set free (v 50 ) and landed property was returned to its original owner (v 13 ): two important laws for preserving the social and economic equilibrium. Jubilee: derived from the Hebrew word yobel, “ram's horn,” which was blown on this occasion.
