Jubilee in the Torah

The Jubilee Found & Taught in the Torah

Verses from the Torah
The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee to you insofar as you may not sow, harvest crops growing of their own accord, or gather grapes from unpruned vines during that [year]. The jubilee shall thus be holy to you. You shall eat the crops from the field that (year]. In the jubilee year, every man shall return to his hereditary property. (Leviticus 25:11-13)

Furthermore the land must not be sold beyond reclaim, for the land is mine, you are but resident aliens under my authority.  Therefore, throughout the land you hold, you must provide redemption for the land. (Leviticus, 25:1-24, esp vss. 10 and 23-24)

At the end of every seventh year you are to cancel the debts of those who owe you money
