Leviticus 25:24–32

24 ‘Thus for every 1piece of your property, you are to provide for the redemption of the land.

25 aIf a 1fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his 1relative has sold.

26 ‘Or in case a man has no kinsman, but so 1recovers his means as to find sufficient for its redemption,

27 athen he shall calculate the years since its sale and refund the balance to the man to whom he sold it, and so return to his property.

28 ‘But if 1he has not found sufficient means to get it back for himself, then what he has sold shall remain in the hands of its purchaser until the year of jubilee; but at the jubilee it shall 2revert, that ahe may return to his property.

29 ‘Likewise, if a man sells a dwelling house in a walled city, then his redemption right remains valid until a full year from its sale; his right of redemption lasts a full year.

30 ‘But if it is not bought back for him within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city passes permanently to its purchaser throughout his generations; it does not 1revert in the jubilee.

31 ‘The houses of the villages, however, which have no surrounding wall shall be considered 1as open fields; they have redemption rights and 2revert in the jubilee.

32 ‘As for acities of the Levites, the Levites have a permanent right of redemption for the houses of the cities which are their possession.
