2 And this is the maner of the release: Euery creditour that lendeth ought vnto his neighbour, shall release it: hee shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother, because it is called the Lords release.
6 For the Lord thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee, and thou shalt lend vnto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow, and thou shalt reigne ouer many nations, but they shall not reigne ouer thee.
7 ∂ If there be among you a poore man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates, in thy lande which the Lord thy God giueth thee, thou shalt not harden thy heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poore brother:
9 Beware that there bee not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seuenth yeere, the yeere of release is at hand, and thine eye be euill against thy poore brother, and thou giuest him nought, and hee crie vnto the Lord against thee, and it be sinne vnto thee.
10 Thou shalt surely giue him, and thine heart shall not bee grieued when thou giuest vnto him: because that for this thing the Lord thy God shall blesse thee in all thy workes, and in all that thou puttest thine hand vnto.
18 It shall not seeme hard vnto thee when thou sendest him away free from thee: for hee hath bene worth a double hired seruant to thee, in seruing thee sixe yeeres: and the Lord thy God shall blesse thee in all that thou doest.
19 ∂ All the firstling males that come of thy heard, and of thy flock, thou shalt sanctifie vnto the Lord thy God: thou shalt doe no worke with the firstling of thy bullocke, nor sheare the firstling of thy sheepe.

Christian's Deuteronomy Chapter 15 comment on 1/23/2013, 9:56am...
I see the question being asked if this passage of Scripture applies to us in our time. The answer is yes and no. Jesus came to fulfil the law. We must now look at the Old Testament in Spiritual eyes. Yes I eat bacon, BUT I must separate myself from spiritual swine and unclean things. Itís no longer a physical issue itís a heart thing.

God has no respect for manís goodness or manís works. That man has to be a born again Christian or he will end up in hell for eternity!

Deuteronomy 15 is not for us to apply, it was meant for the Israelites, Romans 15:4. However aspects stressed in that chapter can benefit us and give us light in such issues. God bless you.

Is Deutronomy 15 still applicable in our time? Or is it among the Mosaic Laws that were only meant for the Israelites? Someone help me please.

It's the ultimate promise from our God to those who believe in Him and He is not a man that He should lie.

The idea here is not designed specifically for todays society where laws based on morality exist based on the Bible originally but no longer literally. For instance adultery is not punishable by stoning. But it is punishable nevertheless by God who knows how to requite iniquity. If one were to lead an all together moral life based on the principles of God as given ti his intercessor, Moses, would not God be pleased with this person and does not God reward rightiousness without fail?

I do not agree. There are some parts of the Bible Christians follow, and some parts we don't. This area specifically says Hebrew men and women.
I agree, no one would need the governments help if people would only help each other. It would be better for the government, they have enough to deal with. It would be better for people as well, both for their over all health and their pride.

If America would have done the right thing with the freedom of slaves who knows what would have changed in History...From what I gather, this principle is similar to the 40 acres and a mule concept...
