Deuteronomy 15

MLV(i) 1 At the end of every seven years you will make a release. 2 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor will release what he has lent to his neighbor. He will not exact it from his neighbor and his brother, because Jehovah's release has been proclaimed. 3 From a foreigner you may exact it, but whatever of your is with your brother, your hand will release.
4 However there will be no poor with you (for Jehovah will surely bless you in the land which Jehovah your God gives you for an inheritance to possess it), 5 if only you diligently listen to the voice of Jehovah your God, to observe to do all this commandment which I command you this day.
6 For Jehovah your God will bless you as he promised you and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you.
7 If there is with you a poor man, one of your brothers, within any of your gates in your land which Jehovah your God gives you, you will not harden your heart, nor shut your hand from your poor brother, 8 but you will surely open your hand to him and will surely lend him sufficient for his need which he wants.
9 Beware that there not be a worthless thought in your heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand and your eye be evil against your poor brother and you give him nothing and he cry to Jehovah against you and it is sin to you. 10 You will surely give him and your heart will not be grieved when you give to him, because for this thing Jehovah your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you put your hand to.
11 For the poor will never cease out of the land. Therefore I command you, saying, You will surely open your hand to your brother, to your needy and to your poor, in your land.
12 If your brother, a Hebrew man, or a Hebrew woman, is sold to you and serves you six years, then in the seventh year you will let him go free from you. 13 And when you let him go free from you, you will not let him go empty. 14 You will furnish him liberally out of your flock and out of your threshing-floor and out of your winepress. As Jehovah your God has blessed you, you will give to him.
15 And you will remember that you were a bondman in the land of Egypt and Jehovah your God redeemed you. Therefore I command you this thing today.
16 And it will be, if he says to you, I will not go out from you, because he loves you and your house, because he is well with you, 17 then you will take an awl and thrust it through his ear to the door and he will be your servant everlasting. And also to your maid-servant you will do likewise.
18 It will not seem hard to you when you let him go free from you, for he has been worth a double hired servant to you, in serving you six years. And Jehovah your God will bless you in all that you do.
19 All the first-offspring males that are born of your herd and of your flock you will sanctify to Jehovah your God. You will do no work with the first-offspring of your herd, nor shear the first-offspring of your flock.
20 You will eat it before Jehovah your God year by year in the place which Jehovah will choose, you and your household. 21 And if it has any blemish, as lame or blind, any ill blemish whatever, you will not sacrifice it to Jehovah your God.
22 You will eat it within your gates. The unclean man and the clean man alike, as the gazelle and as the male-deer.
23 Only you will not eat the blood of it. You will pour it out upon the ground as water.
