Leviticus 25:8-17New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 ‘You are also to count off seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years, so that you have the time of the seven sabbaths of years, namely, forty-nine years.9 You shall then sound a ram’s horn abroad on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the day of atonement you shall sound a horn all through your land.10 You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim [a]a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, [b]and each of you shall return to his own property, [c]and each of you shall return to his family.11 You shall have the fiftieth year as a jubilee; you shall not sow, nor reap its aftergrowth, nor gather in from its untrimmed vines.12 For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy to you. You shall eat its crops out of the field.
13 ‘On this year of jubilee each of you shall return to his own property.14 If you make a sale, moreover, to your friend or buy from your friend’s hand, you shall not wrong one another.15 Corresponding to the number of years after the jubilee, you shall buy from your [d]friend; he is to sell to you according to the number of years of crops.16 In proportion to the [e]extent of the years you shall increase its price, and in proportion to the fewness of the years you shall diminish its price, for it is a number of crops he is selling to you.17 So you shall not wrong one another, but you shall [f]fear your God; for I am the Lord your God.
