Deuteronomy 15:1–2; Nehemiah 5:12

The Sabbatical Year

15 At the end of jevery seven years you shall grant a release. And this is the manner of the release: every creditor shall release what he has lent to his neighbor. He shall not exact it of his neighbor, his brother, because the Lord's release has been proclaimed.


12 Then they said, We will restore these and orequire nothing from them. We will do as you say. And I called the priests and pmade them swear qto do as they had promised.
