2 May God have mercy on us and bless us. May he shine his countenance upon us, and may he have mercy on us.
3 So may we know your way upon the earth, your salvation among all nations.
4 Let the peoples confess to you, O God. Let all the peoples confess to you.
5 May the nations rejoice and exult. For you judge the peoples with equity, and you direct the nations on earth.
6 Let the peoples confess to you, O God. Let all the peoples confess to you.
7 The earth has provided her fruit. May God, our God, bless us.
8 May God bless us, and may all the ends of the earth fear him.
Leviticus 25:1, 8-17
1 And the Lord spoke to Moses on mount Sinai, saying:
8 You shall also number for yourselves seven weeks of years, that is, seven times seven, which together makes forty-nine years.
9 And you shall sound the trumpet in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, at the time of the atonement, throughout all your land.
10 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and you shall proclaim a remission for all the inhabitants of your land: for the same is the Jubilee. A man shall return to his possession, and each one shall go back to his original family,
11 for it is the Jubilee and the fiftieth year. You shall not sow, and you shall not reap what grows in the field of its own accord, and you shall not gather the first-fruits of the crop,
12 due to the sanctification of the Jubilee. But you shall eat them as they present themselves.
13 In the year of the Jubilee, all shall return to their possessions.
14 When you will sell anything to your fellow citizen, or buy anything from him, do not cause your brother grief, but buy from him according to the number of years from the Jubilee,
15 and he shall sell to you according to the computation of the produce.
16 The more years that will remain after the Jubilee, the more the price shall increase, and the less the time is numbered, so much less shall the purchase price be. For he will sell to you the time for the produce.
17 Do be willing to afflict your countrymen, but let each one fear his God. For I am the Lord your God.
