Bible Commentary for Leviticus 25:29

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 25:29


25:27 The years of the sale - That is, from the time of the sale to the jubilee. See above, #Lev 25:15|,16. The overplus - That is, a convenient price for the years from this redemption to the jubilee.

25:28 Go out - That is, out of the buyer's hand, without any redemption money.

25:30 It shall not go out - The reasons before alledged for lands do not hold in such houses; there was no danger of confusion in tribes or families by the alienation of houses. The seller also had a greater propriety in houses than in lands, as being commonly built by the owner's cost and diligence, and therefore had a fuller power to dispose of them. Besides, God would hereby encourage persons to buy and possess houses in such places, as frequency and fulness of inhabitants in cities, was a great strength, honour and advantage to the whole land.

25:31 In the villages - Because they belonged to and were necessary for the management of the lands.
