Leviticus 25:47-54 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

47 “‘And if the alien or[a] the temporary resident who are with you[b] prosper,[c] but[d] your countryman[e] who is with him becomes poor and he is sold to an alien, a temporary resident who is with you, or to a descendant of an alien’s clan, 48 after he is sold redemption shall be for him; one of his brothers may redeem him, 49 or his uncle or his uncle’s son may redeem him, or one of[f] his close relatives[g] from his clan may redeem him; or if he prospers,[h] he may redeem himself. 50 And he shall calculate with his buyer from the year of his selling himself[i] until the Jubilee; and the value of his selling shall be according to the number of years—it shall be with him like[j] a hired worker’s days. 51 If there are still many years, in keeping with them[k] he shall restore his redemption in proportion to his purchase price.[l] 52 And if there are a few years left until the Year of Jubilee, then[m] he shall calculate for himself; he shall restore his redemption according to the number of his years.[n] 53 He shall be with him as a yearly hired worker;[o] he shall not rule over him with ruthlessness in your[p] sight.[q] 54 And if he is not redeemed by[r] any of these ways,[s] then[t] he and his sons with him shall go out in the Year of Jubilee.
