Deuteronomy 15

At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.
And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release.
Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it:
你若留意听从耶和华─你 神的话,谨守遵行我今日所吩咐你这一切的命令,就必在你们中间没有穷人了(在耶和华─你 神所赐你为业的地上,耶和华必大大赐福与你。)
Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.
For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
因为耶和华─你的 神必照他所应许你的赐福与你。你必借给许多国民,却不致向他们借贷;你必管辖许多国民,他们却不能管辖你。
If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother:
「在耶和华─你 神所赐你的地上,无论那一座城里,你弟兄中若有一个穷人,你不可忍著心、揝著手不帮补你穷乏的弟兄。
But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth.
Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.
你总要给他,给他的时候心里不可愁烦;因耶和华─你的 神必在你这一切所行的,并你手里所办的事上,赐福与你。
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee.
And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty:
Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the LORD thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him.
要从你羊群、禾场、酒醡之中多多地给他;耶和华─你的 神怎样赐福与你,你也要照样给他。
And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee: therefore I command thee this thing to day.
要记念你在埃及地作过奴仆,耶和华─你的 神将你救赎;因此,我今日吩咐你这件事。
And it shall be, if he say unto thee, I will not go away from thee; because he loveth thee and thine house, because he is well with thee;
Then thou shalt take an aul, and thrust it through his ear unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also unto thy maidservant thou shalt do likewise.
It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou sendest him away free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant to thee, in serving thee six years: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all that thou doest.
你任他自由的时候,不可以为难事,因他服事你六年,较比雇工的工价多加一倍了。耶和华─你的 神就必在你所做的一切事上赐福与你。」
All the firstling males that come of thy herd and of thy flock thou shalt sanctify unto the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work with the firstling of thy bullock, nor shear the firstling of thy sheep.
「你牛群羊群中头生的,凡是公的,都要分别为圣,归耶和华─你的 神。牛群中头生的,不可用牠耕地;羊群中头生的,不可剪毛。
Thou shalt eat it before the LORD thy God year by year in the place which the LORD shall choose, thou and thy household.
这头生的,你和你的家属,每年要在耶和华所选择的地方,在耶和华─你 神面前吃。
And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the LORD thy God.
这头生的若有什么残疾,就如瘸腿的、瞎眼的,无论有什么恶残疾,都不可献给耶和华─你的 神;
Thou shalt eat it within thy gates: the unclean and the clean person shall eat it alike, as the roebuck, and as the hart.
Only thou shalt not eat the blood thereof; thou shalt pour it upon the ground as water.
