25:29 “ ‘If a man sells a residential house in a walled city,51 its right of redemption must extend52 until one full year from its sale;53 its right of redemption must extend to a full calendar year.54 25:30 If it is not redeemed before the full calendar year is ended,55 the house in the walled city56 will belong without reclaim57 to the one who bought it throughout his generations; it will not revert in the jubilee. 25:31 The houses of villages, however,58 which have no wall surrounding them59 must be considered as the field60 of the land; they will have the right of redemption and must revert in the jubilee. 25:32 As for61 the cities of the Levites, the houses in the cities which they possess,62 the Levites must have a perpetual right of redemption. 25:33 Whatever someone among the Levites might redeem—the sale of a house which is his property in a city—must revert in the jubilee,63 because the houses of the cities of the Levites are their property in the midst of the Israelites. 25:34 Moreover,64 the open field areas of their cities65 must not be sold, because that is their perpetual possession.
