1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 The seventh year a year of release for the poor. 7 It must be no let of lending or giving. 12 An Hebrew servant, 16 except he will not depart, must in the seventh year go forth free and well furnished. 19 All firstling males of the cattle are to be sanctified unto the LORD.
15:1 ¶ At the end of seven years, shalt thou make a release.
15:2 And, this, shall be the manner of the release, Every creditor who lendeth aught to his neighbour, his hand shall release it,he shall not exact it of his neighbour or his brother, because there hath been proclaimed a release, unto Yahweh.
15:3 Of a foreigner, thou mayest exact it,but, what thou hast with thy brother, thy hand shall release;
15:6 When, Yahweh thy God, hath blessed thee, as he spake unto thee, then shalt thou lend unto many nations, but, thou, shalt not borrow, and, thou shalt rule over many nations, but, over thee, shall they not rule.
15:7 When there cometh to be among you a needy person, any one of thy brethren, within any one of thy gates, in thy land, which Yahweh thy God is giving unto thee, thou shalt not harden thy heart, nor shut thy hand from thy needy brother:
15:8 but thou shalt, open, thy hand unto him,and, lend, him, enough to meet the poverty which doth impoverish him.
15:9 Take thou heed to thyself, lest there be something near thine abandoned heart, sayingDrawing nigh, is the seventh year, the year of release, and so thine eye be, evil, against thy needy brother, and thou give not unto him,and he cry out against thee, unto Yahweh, and it become in thee, a sin!
15:10 Thou shalt, give, unto him, and thy heart, shall not be evil, when thou givest unto him,for, on account of this very thing, will Yahweh thy God bless thee, in all that thou doest, and in all whereunto thou puttest thy hand.
15:11 For the needy will not cease out of the midst of the landfor this cause, am I commanding thee, saying, Thou shalt, open, thy hand unto thy brother, to thy poor and to thy needy, in thy land.
15:12 ¶ When thy brother, a Hebrew man (or a Hebrew woman) selleth himself unto thee, then shall he serve thee six years,and, in the seventh year, shalt thou let him go out free, from thee;
15:13 and, when thou lettest him go out free, from thee, thou shalt not let him go out, empty:
15:16 And it shall be, if he shall say unto thee, I will not go away from thee,because he loveth thee, and thy household, because he is well off with thee,
15:17 then shalt thou take an awl, and thrust it through his ear unto the door, so shall he be thy servant all his life. And, unto thine handmaid also, shalt thou do thus.
15:18 It shall not be hard in thine eyes, when thou lettest him go out free, from thee; for, to the double of the hire of a hireling, hath he served thee, six years,so will Yahweh thy God bless thee, in all that thou doest.
15:19 ¶ Every firstling that is brought forth in thy herd and in thy flock, that is a male, shalt thou hallow unto Yahweh thy God,thou shalt not work with a firstling of thine oxen, neither shalt thou shear a firstling of thy flock:
15:22 within thine own gates, mayest thou eat it,the unclean [of you] and the clean, alike, as the gazelle and as the hart.
15:23 Only, the blood thereof, shalt thou not eat,on the earth, shalt thou pour it out, like water.
