Regulations for the Sabbatical Year

25:1 The Lord spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai: 25:2 “Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When you enter the land that I am giving you, the land must observe a Sabbath1 to the Lord. 25:3 Six years you may sow your field, and six years you may prune your vineyard and gather the produce,2 25:4 but in the seventh year the land must have a Sabbath of complete rest3—a Sabbath to the Lord. You must not sow your field or4 prune your vineyard. 25:5 You must not gather in the aftergrowth of your harvest and you must not pick the grapes of your unpruned5 vines; the land must have a year of complete rest. 25:6 You may have the Sabbath produce6 of the land to eat—you, your male servant, your female servant, your hired worker, the resident foreigner who stays with you,7 25:7 your cattle, and the wild animals that are in your land—all its produce will be for you8 to eat.
