Text Commentary side-by-side

15, 1 :

At the end of every seven‐year period: in every seventh, or sabbatical, year. Cf Dt 15, 9; 31, 10 ; and compare Jer 34, 14 with Dt 15, 12 . A relaxation of debts: it is uncertain whether a full cancellation of debts is meant, or merely a suspension of payment on them or on their interest among the Israelites. Cf Ex 23, 11 where the same Hebrew root is used of a field that is “let lie fallow” in the sabbatical year.

15, 11 :

The needy will never be lacking: compare the words of Christ, “The poor you have always with you” (Mt 26, 11 ).

15, 17 :

His ear: cf Ex 21, 6 and the note there.
