15:1 At the end [H7093] of [every] seven [H7651] years [H8141] thou shalt make [H6213] a release [H8059] .

15:2 And this [is] the manner [H1697] of the release [H8059] : Every creditor [H1167] [H4874] [H3027] that lendeth [H5383] [ought] unto his neighbour [H7453] shall release [H8058] [it]; he shall not exact [H5065] [it] of his neighbour [H7453] , or of his brother [H251] ; because it is called [H7121] the LORD'S [H3068] release [H8059] .(creditor: Heb. master of the lending of his hand)

15:3 Of a foreigner [H5237] thou mayest exact [H5065] [it again]: but [that] which is thine with thy brother [H251] thine hand [H3027] shall release [H8058] ;

15:4 Save [H657] when there shall be no poor [H34] among you; for the LORD [H3068] shall greatly [H1288] bless [H1288] thee in the land [H776] which the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] giveth [H5414] thee [for] an inheritance [H5159] to possess [H3423] it:(Save: or, To the end that there be no poor among you)

15:5 Only if thou carefully [H8085] hearken [H8085] unto the voice [H6963] of the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] , to observe [H8104] to do [H6213] all these commandments [H4687] which I command [H6680] thee this day [H3117] .

15:6 For the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] blesseth [H1288] thee, as he promised [H1696] thee: and thou shalt lend [H5670] unto many [H7227] nations [H1471] , but thou shalt not borrow [H5670] ; and thou shalt reign [H4910] over many [H7227] nations [H1471] , but they shall not reign [H4910] over thee.

15:7 If there be among you a poor man [H34] of one [H259] of thy brethren [H251] within any [H259] of thy gates [H8179] in thy land [H776] which the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] giveth [H5414] thee, thou shalt not harden [H553] thine heart [H3824] , nor shut [H7092] thine hand [H3027] from thy poor [H34] brother [H251] :

15:8 But thou shalt open [H6605] thine hand [H3027] wide [H6605] unto him, and shalt surely [H5670] lend [H5670] him sufficient [H1767] for his need [H4270] , [in that] which he wanteth [H2637] .

15:9 Beware [H8104] that there be not a thought [H1697] in thy wicked [H1100] heart [H3824] , saying [H559] , The seventh [H7651] year [H8141] , the year [H8141] of release [H8059] , is at hand [H7126] ; and thine eye [H5869] be evil [H7489] against thy poor [H34] brother [H251] , and thou givest [H5414] him nought; and he cry [H7121] unto the LORD [H3068] against thee, and it be sin [H2399] unto thee.(thought: Heb. word)(wicked: Heb. Belial)

15:10 Thou shalt surely [H5414] give [H5414] him, and thine heart [H3824] shall not be grieved [H3415] when thou givest [H5414] unto him: because [H1558] that for this thing [H1697] the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] shall bless [H1288] thee in all thy works [H4639] , and in all that thou puttest [H4916] thine hand [H3027] unto.

15:11 For the poor [H34] shall never cease [H2308] out of [H7130] the land [H776] : therefore I command [H6680] thee, saying [H559] , Thou shalt open [H6605] thine hand [H3027] wide [H6605] unto thy brother [H251] , to thy poor [H6041] , and to thy needy [H34] , in thy land [H776] .

15:12 [And] if thy brother [H251] , an Hebrew man [H5680] , or an Hebrew woman [H5680] , be sold [H4376] unto thee, and serve [H5647] thee six [H8337] years [H8141] ; then in the seventh [H7637] year [H8141] thou shalt let him go [H7971] free [H2670] from thee.

15:13 And when thou sendest [H7971] him out free [H2670] from thee, thou shalt not let him go away [H7971] empty [H7387] :

15:14 Thou shalt furnish [H6059] him liberally [H6059] out of thy flock [H6629] , and out of thy floor [H1637] , and out of thy winepress [H3342] : [of that] wherewith the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] hath blessed [H1288] thee thou shalt give [H5414] unto him.

15:15 And thou shalt remember [H2142] that thou wast a bondman [H5650] in the land [H776] of Egypt [H4714] , and the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] redeemed [H6299] thee: therefore I command [H6680] thee this thing [H1697] to day [H3117] .

15:16 And it shall be, if he say [H559] unto thee, I will not go away [H3318] from thee; because he loveth [H157] thee and thine house [H1004] , because he is well [H2895] with thee;

15:17 Then thou shalt take [H3947] an aul [H4836] , and thrust [H5414] [it] through his ear [H241] unto the door [H1817] , and he shall be thy servant [H5650] for ever [H5769] . And also unto thy maidservant [H519] thou shalt do [H6213] likewise.

15:18 It shall not seem hard [H7185] unto thee [H5869] , when thou sendest him away [H7971] free [H2670] from thee; for he hath been worth [H7939] a double [H4932] hired servant [H7916] [to thee], in serving [H5647] thee six [H8337] years [H8141] : and the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] shall bless [H1288] thee in all that thou doest [H6213] .

15:19 All the firstling [H1060] males [H2145] that come [H3205] of thy herd [H1241] and of thy flock [H6629] thou shalt sanctify [H6942] unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] : thou shalt do no work [H5647] with the firstling [H1060] of thy bullock [H7794] , nor shear [H1494] the firstling [H1060] of thy sheep [H6629] .

15:20 Thou shalt eat [H398] [it] before [H6440] the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] year [H8141] by year [H8141] in the place [H4725] which the LORD [H3068] shall choose [H977] , thou and thy household [H1004] .

15:21 And if there be [any] blemish [H3971] therein, [as if it be] lame [H6455] , or blind [H5787] , [or have] any ill [H7451] blemish [H3971] , thou shalt not sacrifice [H2076] it unto the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] .

15:22 Thou shalt eat [H398] it within thy gates [H8179] : the unclean [H2931] and the clean [H2889] [person shall eat it] alike [H3162] , as the roebuck [H6643] , and as the hart [H354] .

15:23 Only thou shalt not eat [H398] the blood [H1818] thereof; thou shalt pour [H8210] it upon the ground [H776] as water [H4325] .
