And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD.
Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
Исх 23, 10
But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
Втор 15, 1
That which groweth of its own accord of thy harvest thou shalt not reap, neither gather the grapes of thy vine undressed:
it is a year of rest unto the land.
And the sabbath of the land shall be meat for you;
for thee, and for thy servant, and for thy maid, and for thy hired servant, and for thy stranger that sojourneth with thee,
And for thy cattle, and for the beast that
in thy land, shall all the increase thereof be meat.
And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years;
and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth

In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession.

1 Фес 4, 6
According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour,
according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:
According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for
to the number
of the years
of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.
Ye shall not therefore oppress one another;
but thou shalt fear thy God: for I
the LORD your God.

Иез 34, 27

unto his neighbour shall release
he shall not exact

which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
The commandment of forgiveness in the seventh year is included in the covenant of the people of God with the Almighty. Sometimes we, the people of God, freely choose to dishonor the name of the Most High. In this case, the Almighty declares to us: “I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine, …”, etc.
It's good not to forget this.
Therefore the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel;
I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying,
Исх 21, 2
Втор 15, 12
At the end of seven years let ye go every man his brother an Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee;
and when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee: but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear.
Иер 7, 24
Иер 25, 4
Иер 35, 15
And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour;
and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name:
But ye turned and polluted my name, and caused every man his servant, and every man his handmaid, whom ye had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection, to be unto you for servants and for handmaids.
Therefore thus saith the LORD;
Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine;
and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.
Втор 28, 64
And I will give the men that have transgressed my covenant, which have not performed the words of the covenant which they had made before me, when they cut the calf in twain, and passed between the parts thereof,
Быт 15, 10
The princes of Judah, and the princes of Jerusalem, the eunuchs, and the priests, and all the people of the land, which passed between the parts of the calf;
I will even give them into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of them that seek their life: and their dead bodies shall be for meat unto the fowls of the heaven, and to the beasts of the earth.
Иер 7, 33
And Zedekiah king of Judah and his princes will I give into the hand of their enemies, and into the hand of them that seek their life, and into the hand of the king of Babylon's army, which are gone up from you.
Behold, I will command, saith the LORD, and cause them to return to this city;
and they shall fight against it, and take it, and burn it with fire: and I will make the cities of Judah a desolation without an inhabitant.
The Bible uses the concept of a week to refer to a fully completed cycle.
The days of our years
threescore years and ten;
and if by reason of strength
fourscore years, yet
their strength labour and sorrow;
for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
