25 1 Yahweh said to Moses on Mount Sinai, 25 2 "Say to the people of Israel, When you come into the land which I give you, the land shall keep a sabbath to Yahweh. 25 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather in its fruits; 25 4 but in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to Yahweh; you shall not sow your field or prune your vineyard. 25 5 What grows of itself in 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. 25 6 The sabbath of the land shall provide food for you, for yourself and for your male and female slaves and for your hired servant and the sojourner who lives with you; 25 7 for your cattle also and for the beasts that are in your land all its yield shall be for food.
