CHAPTER 25

Leviticus 25:1-55

Lev 25:1 And hwhy spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, When you come to the land which I am giving to you, and you shall rest the land of a Shabbath to hwhy. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and you shall gather ta-her produce; 4 And on the seventh year shall be the Shabbath of Rest for the land of a Shabbath to hwhy: You shall not sow your field, and you shall not prune your vineyard. 5 You shall not reap ta the after-growth of your harvest, and you shall not gather ta-the grapes of your unkept vines: shall be a Year of Rest to the land. 6 And she shall be a Shabbath of the Land, shall be to you for food, for you, and for your male servant, and for your female servant, and for your hired one, and for your dweller that sojourns with you, 7 and for your animal, and for the beast which is in your land. All of her produce, she shall be for food.

8 And you shall count for yourself seven Shabbaths of years- seven years, seven times; and shall be to you the days of the seven Shabbaths of the years, nine and forty years. 9 And you shall go over a sound of a shofar (sound over a shofar of a signal), on the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, on the Day of the Atonements, you shall go over (sound over) a shofar in all of your land.

10 And you shall sanctify the year, ta the fiftieth year, and you shall proclaim liberty in all the land to all her dwellers: she, she shall be a Jubilee for yourselves; and you shall repay a man to his possession, and you shall return a man to his family. 11 The Jubilee, she shall be the fiftieth year, a year she shall be to you: You shall not sow, and you shall not reap ta-her produce, and you shall not clip off ta-her unkept vines. 12 For she is the Jubilee; she shall be Holy to you: you shall eat ta-her produce from the field. 13 In the year of this Jubilee, you shall return a man to his possession. 14 And if you sell merchandise to your neighbor, or buy from the hand of your neighbor, you shall not oppress a man ta-his brother: 15 You shall buy from ta your neighbor on the number of years after the Jubilee, shall sell to you on the number of years of produce: 16 You shall multiply from his price by the mouth of the many years, and you shall diminish his price by the mouth of the fewness of the years: he is selling to you by the number of production. 17 And you shall not oppress a man ta-his neighbor; and you shall fear from your Elohim: for I am hwhy, your Elohim. 18 And you shall do ta-My Statutes, and you shall keep ta-My Judgments, and you shall do them; and you shall dwell upon the land for security. 19 And you shall give the land her fruit, and you shall eat to satisfaction, and you shall dwell upon her for security.

20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat in the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, and we shall not gather
ta-our produce: 21 And I shall command My Blessing to you on the sixth year, and shall make the produce for the three years. 22 And you shall sow ta the eighth year, and you shall eat from her produce until the ninth year; you shall eat the old until the coming of her produce, 23 and you shall not sell the land for destruction (extinction, perpetuity): for the land is to Me; for your are strangers and dwellers with Me. 24 And in all the land of your possession, you shall give a redemption for the land.

25 If your brother shall be poor, and has sold his possession, and his redeemer that is related to him shall come near and redeem ta the sold thing of his brother. 26 And if shall not be to him a man of a redeemer, and his hand was able, and finds as enough of his redemption; 27 And shall compute ta-the years of his sale, and shall return ta-the remainder (surplus) whom was sold to him to the man; and shall return to his possession. 28 And if his hand has not found enough to return to him, and shall be his sold thing in the hands of the one buying him until the year of the Jubilee, and shall go out on the Jubilee and shall return to his possession.

29 And if a man dwelling at a walled city shall sell a house, and she shall be his redemption until the end of the year of his sale; she shall be the days of his redemption. 30 And if is not redeemed to himself until the fullness of a complete year, and shall remain the house which is in the city which was to him a wall for security to his buyer for his generations: shall not go out in the Jubilee. 31 And the houses of the villages which has not a wall all around to them shall be computed upon the fields of the land, she shall be to him for a redemption: and shall go out in the Jubilee.

32 And the cities of the Levites of the houses of the cities of their possession, she shall be a Redemption of Ages to the Levites. 33 And whomever shall redeem from the Levites, and shall go out a sale of the house, and shall be a city of their possession in the Jubilee: for the houses of the cities of the Levites, she is their possession in the midst of the Sons of Israel. 34 And a field of a pasture land of their cities shall not be sold; for he is to them a Possession of Ages.

35 And if your brother shall be poor, and has failed his hand with you; and you shall take hold on him for a stranger and a dweller; and shall live with you, 36 you shall not take from him of interest (usary) or increase: you shall fear from your Elohim; and your brother shall live with you. 37 And you shall not give to him
ta-your silver on interest, and you shall not give your food on increase. 38 I am hwhy, your Elohim, whom I have brought you out from the land of Egypt to give to you ta-the land of Canaan, to be to you for Elohim.

39 And if your brother with you shall be poor, and was sold to you; you shall not make over on him the service of a servant: 40 Shall be with you as a hired one, as a dweller (sojourner), shall serve with you until the year of the Jubilee: 41 And he shall go out from you, he and his sons with him, and shall return to his family, and shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For they are My Servants whom I have brought them out from the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold from a sale of a servant. 43 You shall not tread down on him on cruelty; and you shall fear from your Elohim. 44 And your male servant and your female servant whom they shall be to you, from ta the nations who are all around you; you shall buy them for a male servant and a female servant. 45 And also from the sons of the dwellers that are sojourning with you, you shall buy from them, and from their families who are with you whom they have birthed in your land: and they shall be to you for a possession. 46 And you shall inherit them for your sons after you of a possession for ages: on them, they shall be servants: and on your brothers of the Sons of Israel, each among his brother, you shall not rule against him in cruelty.

47 And if you shall lift up a hand of a stranger or a dweller with you, and your brother is poor with him, and is sold to a stranger of a dweller with you, or of a naturalized one from the family of a stranger: 48 After has been sold, you shall be a redeemer to him; one from his brothers shall redeem him: 49 or his uncle, or a son of his uncle shall redeem him, or from a relative of his flesh from his family shall redeem him; or an enabler of his hand, and shall redeem. 50 And shall compute with his buyer from the year of his selling to him until the year of the Jubilee: and and his sale shall be of silver on the number of years, shall be with him as the days of hireling. 51 If shall be yet many on the years, by their mouths shall return his redemption with the silver from his purchase. 52 And if few remain on the years until the year of the Jubilee, and shall compute to him according to the mouth of his years, shall return ta-his redemption. 53 Shall be with him as a hired servant year by year: shall not rule on cruelty in your eyes. 54 And if shall not redeem on these, and he and his sons with him shall go out in the year of the Jubilee, 55 for the Sons of Israel are servants to Me; They are My servants whom I brought them out from the land of Egypt: I am hwhy, your Elohim.

Verses one through seven

THE SHABBATH YEAR OF REST FOR THE LAND

1 And hwhy spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai to say, 2 Speak to the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, When you come to the land which I am giving to you, and you shall rest the land of a Shabbath to hwhy. 3 Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and you shall gather ta-her produce; 4 And on the seventh year shall be the Shabbath of Rest for the land of a Shabbath to hwhy: You shall not sow your field, and you shall not prune your vineyard. 5 You shall not reap ta the after-growth of your harvest, and you shall not gather ta-the grapes of your unkept vines: shall be a Year of Rest to the land. 6 And she shall be a Shabbath of the Land, shall be to you for food, for you, and for your male servant, and for your female servant, and for your hired one, and for your dweller that sojourns with you, 7 and for your animal, and for the beast which is in your land. All of her produce, she shall be for food.

It is commonly circulated that this seventh year of rest corelates with the Shemitah, which will be noted later, but I will only note at this time that the problem is that the only time the Shemitah is mentioned is in the Torah portion of R'ey, in the book of Deuteronomy, in chapter fifteen, it is referenced to the release, or cancellation, of financial debts, and not a rest for the land. But it does line up with the Year of Rest for the land.

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that when the land is at rest, the fruits and grains are naturally going to fall off, and produce more grains and fruits for next year.

Monte also talked to an agricultural scientist, and he told Monte that in Idado, well known for their potatos, the potato fields have dropped eight feet. The farmers would have to haul dump truck loads of dirt to replace the topsoil that was lost during the times the potatos were soaking up the nutrients of the soil. The farmers have not been given the land a rest for the year, and this is a good reason why the land needs it. In paraphrasing, Monte says that just like us who are observing the seventh day rest, shouldn't the land have the right to have a rest too, for a year?

I watched an Ask This Old House episode where a man uses, what we call, "food garbage", like banana peels, unused parts of food, etc.. This man stored them in a bucket and in the back of an open yard location. In time, it decays and turns into "compost", which gardiners, as well as professional gardiners, call it "black gold". This is what happens when the fruit of the tree is not plucked or pruned, by falling to the ground, and in time, it turns into compost to replenish the soil.

An account of the resting of the land is noted in the book of the Chronicles

2 Chronicles 36:15 And 
hwhy, Elohim of their fathers, sent to them by His messengers, rising up betimes, and sending; because he had compassion on His People, and on his dwelling place: 16 But they mocked the messengers of the Elohim, and despised his words, and misused His Prophets, until the Wrath of hwhy arose against His People, till there was no remedy. 17 Therefore he brought upon them ta-the King of the Kasdim, who slew their young men with the sword in the House of their Sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or him that stooped for age: He gave them all into his hand. 18 And all the vessels of the House of the Elohim, great and small, and the treasures of the House of hwhy, and the treasures of the king, and of his princes; all these he brought to Babylon. 19 And they burnt ta-the House of The Elohim, and brake down ta the wall of Jerusalem, and burnt all the palaces thereof with fire, and destroyed all the goodly vessels thereof. 20 And them that had escaped from the sword carried he away to Babylon; where they were servants to him and his sons until the reign of the Kingdom of Persia: 21 To fulfill the Word of hwhy by the mouth of Jeremiah, until the land had enjoyed ta-her Shabbaths: for as long as she lay desolate she kept Shabbath, to fulfill threescore and ten years.

This is what was written in the book of the prophet Jeremiah

Jeremiah 25:8 Therefore thus saith hwhy of Hosts; Because ye have not heard ta-My Words, 9 Behold, I will send and take ta-all the families of the north, saith hwhy, and Nebuchadrezzar, King of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and an hissing, and perpetual desolations. 10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle. 11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve ta-the King of Babylon seventy years.

The seventy years of captivity was in reference to the all the years that the Israelites did not follow this Torah Commandment to give the land a seventh year rest seventy times. Multiply seven years by seventy years it comes to 490 years. The probable time that the Southern House of Judah was dispersed into Babylonian captivity around 586 BC. By adding 490 years to it, it comes to around 1076 BC, which puts Solomon's reign about 1003 BC. It is interesting that 
hwhy waited until the seventieth time of the seven year cycle of the land rest to take the House of Judah out of the land, and not sixty five, or sixty nine, or seventy five, but seventy. The number seven represents spiritual perfection. The number seventy is a number of reviewed perfection, because it was a year of review to see if they kept His word or not.
 
Indirectly related, these number ordinals were used by Yeshua regarding the amount of times to forgive, and it's noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 18:21 Then came Peter to Him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? 22 Yeshua saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.

Technically, Yeshua multiplied the amount to forgive to 490 times- the amount of years that the house of Judah lived in the land without giving the land her Shabbath rest those seventy times, but figuratively, Yeshua was saying to Peter to continuously keep forgiving without end. The fact that Yeshua mentioned the multiplication of the perfect numbers to equal 490 was probably a hint of a recall to the prophetic accounts of the years the House of Judah had time to do right with the land before their dispersion around 586 BC.



Verses eight and nine

THE FORTY NINTH YEAR

8 And you shall count for yourself seven Shabbaths of years- seven years, seven times; and shall be to you the days of the seven Shabbaths of the years, nine and forty years. 9 And you shall go over a sound of a shofar (sound over a shofar of a signal), on the seventh month, on the tenth of the month, on the Day of the Atonements, you shall go over (sound over) a shofar in all of your land.

Interesting that in the forty ninth year, the year before the Jubilee, a shofar is to sound throughout the land, on the day of Yom HaKippurim. It is probable that the blowing of the shofar is the warning to say "The Jubilee year is coming. Be prepared to repay your brethren".

Notice also that the shofar is to sound only on the seventh seventh year, the forty ninth year, and not on the other seventh year cycles before it.

This year is also the seventh year in a seven year cycle, which is called the Shemitah year, and it's noted in the Torah portion of R'ey, in the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 15:1 From the end of seven years you shall make a Shemitah-Release. 2 And this is the word of the Shemitah-Release: Shall release every master the debt of his hand which was lent among his neighbor; shall not exact ta-his neighbor, and ta-his brother; for is called out a Shemitah-Release to hwhy. 3 You may exact ta-The foreigner: and what shall be to you, ta-your brother, you shall release your hand; 4 Ending, for shall not be among you a needy one; for blessing,  hwhy shall bless you in the land which hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you of an inheritance to possess her:

5 Only if hearing, you will hearken in the voice of 
hwhy your Elohim, to observe to do all ta-this Commandment which I am commanding you today. 6 For hwhy, your Elohim, shall bless you as which was spoken to you: and you shall lend many nations, and you, you shall not borrow; and you shall rule among many nations, and they shall not rule among you. 7 If shall be among you a needy one from one of your brothers in one of your gates in your land which hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you, you shall not harden ta-your heart, and you shall not shut ta-your hand from your needy brother: 8 For opening, you shall open ta-your hand to him, and the lending, you shall lend him enough from his lack which shall be lacking of him.

9 Take heed to yourself lest shall be a word in your wicked heart to say, The seventh year is drawing near, the year of the Shemitah-Release; and your eye is evil against your needy brother, and you shall not give to him; and cries to 
hwhy upon you, and shall be sin against you. 10 Giving, you shall give to him, and shall not be evil your heart in your giving to him: for in the account of this Word, hwhy, your Elohim, shall bless you in all your works, and in all you lay your hand. 11 For the needy shall not cease from the midst of the land: upon thus, I am Commanding you, to say, Opening, you shall open ta-your hand to your brother, to your poor, and to your needy, in your land.

Looking at the word SHEMITAH-RELEASE


The Hebrew word for Shemitah-release is "sh'meetah"- Shin, Mem, Tet, Heh (
hjms
). It is from Strong's Concordance number 8059, and its definition

From H8058; remission (of debt) or suspension (of labor): - release.

from 8058 "shah-maht" (
jms), and its definition

A primitive root; to fling down; incipiently to jostle; figuratively to let alone, desist, remit: - discontinue, overthrow, release, let rest, shake, stumble, throw down.

This is where we get the modern English word "smite". If people do not know, Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jewish Rabbi of Beit Israel Worship Center wrote books about the Shemitah. He wrote that the reason of the economic collapse in the United States in 2001 and 2008, was because they were the years that the banks and financial industry were supposed to cancel the debts of the people but instead, they received the judgment of the Shemitah. As I said above the English word for shemitah is "smite". In the case for the U.S., and other countries who are to be righteous nations, hwhy was saying to the U.S. and other nations "If you don't 'smite' the debts from the people, I will 'smite' your economy". We just a similar smite in 2015, seven years later, with the Dow Jones dropped 1,000 points within a couple of days.

Also, if one counts forty nine years from 1967, when the Jewish people recaptured Jerusalem, after 1900 years when it was destroyed by the Romans around 67 AD, it comes to the year 2016-2017 Biblical year. It was also a U.S. presidential election that year. 2016 could have been the seventh Shabbath of years where the shofar will sound in the land of Israel, and maybe around the world. Well, one could say that it did happen in the U.S. Presidential Election, and it's based in the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly of Thessalonica

1 Thessalonians 4:13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Yeshua will hwhy bring with Him. 15 For this we say unto you by the word of hwhy, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump [shofar blast?] of hwhy: and the dead in Messiah shall rise first: 17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Well, in the playing of words, it did happen, and it was the sound of "trump", a.k.a. Donald Trump who became the Forty Fifth President of the United States.

Another question: "What about the annual Commandment that the males have to bring the two first fruits, the Barley first fruits for Passover/Unleavened Bread, and the Wheat first fruits for Shavuoth (Pentecost)"? This is what it's noted in the Torah portion of Mishpatim, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 23:14 Three times you will feast to Me in the year. 15 You will keep ta the Feast of the Unleavened Bread: seven days you will eat unleavened bread as which I commanded you to the Appointed Time of the month of the Aviv; for in him, you came out from Egypt: and they shall not see My Face empty: 16 And the Feast of the Harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you have sown in the field: and the Feast of the Ingathering in the going out of the year in your gathering ta-your work from the field. 17 Three times in the year all your males shall appear to the Face of the Adon hwhy.

How do they keep this Commandment when they are not to harvest the land? They are required to do this every year to 
hwhy. Are they to take the seventh year off? I don't think so. They can still take the first fruits of the field without harvesting it, as it grows during the Shemitah year.

Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries noted that the Rabbis changed the Shemitah-Release Commandment and nullified it, so that they can still hold on to the loan. It is located in their Mishnah in the book of Gitti 4:3. This is what it says

"Hillel [HaZakan] also instituted the prosbul for the good of the community. [The Law states that all loans are cancelled on shemittah (see Deuteronomy 15:1-3). When Hillel noticed that people were denying loans before the shemittah year, thereby transgressing: "Guard yourself lest there be in your heart an unthoughtful thought saying the seventh year, the year of release has approached" (ibid. verse 9), he instituted the prosbul which states that the loan and its collection is given over to the courts, and is thereby not cancelled.]"


Also in the Mishnah, in Shevi'it 10:3, it says this

"[A loan secured by] a prosbul [the next Mishnah explains the termn] is not cancelled [by shemittah. This was one of the things instituted by Hillel HaZakan; for when he saw that people were refraining from lending to one another, and were transgressing that which is written in the Torah, "Guard yourself, lest there be in your heart an unfaithful thought, saying, The seventh year, the year of the release has approached and you will be miserly with your needy brother and you will not give him; (Deuteronomy 15:9)."] Hillel then instituted the prosbul. [It should be noted that, at the time of Hillel, since the laws regarding the return of properties during Yoveil were no longer in force, the laws regarding the cancellation of loans of shemittah were also not in effect, as according to this opinion (see Gittin 36b), one was dependent on the other. However, the Rabbis reinstituted the laws of shemittah, so Hilel was not circumventing Biblical law]."

Yesh, right. They are still practicing this "prosbul" today. According to Rico Cortes, they hand it over to another institutional source. That way, the Rabbis don't have to cancel the debt, and the institutional source holds on to the loan without interest for the year of the Shemitah-Release, and when the year is over, the Rabbis take it back and continue on with the loan with interest, Thus breaking the Shemitah-Release Commandment.



Verses ten through nineteen

THE JUBILEE

10 And you shall sanctify the year, ta the fiftieth year, and you shall proclaim liberty in all the land to all her dwellers: she, she shall be a Jubilee for yourselves; and you shall repay a man to his possession, and you shall return a man to his family. 11 The Jubilee, she shall be the fiftieth year, a year she shall be to you: You shall not sow, and you shall not reap ta-her produce, and you shall not clip off ta-her unkept vines. 12 For she is the Jubilee; she shall be Holy to you: you shall eat ta-her produce from the field. 13 In the year of this Jubilee, you shall return a man to his possession. 14 And if you sell merchandise to your neighbor, or buy from the hand of your neighbor, you shall not oppress a man ta-his brother: 15 You shall buy from ta your neighbor on the number of years after the Jubilee, shall sell to you on the number of years of produce: 16 You shall multiply from his price by the mouth of the many years, and you shall diminish his price by the mouth of the fewness of the years: he is selling to you by the number of production. 17 And you shall not oppress a man ta-his neighbor; and you shall fear from your Elohim: for I am hwhy, your Elohim. 18 And you shall do ta-My Statutes, and you shall keep ta-My Judgments, and you shall do them; and you shall dwell upon the land for security. 19 And you shall give the land her fruit, and you shall eat to satisfaction, and you shall dwell upon her for security.

This Jubilee year is an "independant" year, and does not become part of any seven year cycle. It is a "separate" year. As most of the nations around the Western world count in centuries, of one hundred year cycles, hwhy counts in fifty year cycles, and the Jubilee year is the last year of the fifty year cycle. Then hwhy starts the fifty year cycle all over again, with the first set of the seven sets of the seven year cycles.

Looking at the word JUBILEE

The Hebrew word for jubilee is "yoh-veyl"- Yod, Bet, Vav Lamed (
lbwy). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3104, and its definition

Apparently from H2986; the blast of a horn (from its continuous sound); specifically the signal of the silver trumpets; hence the instrument itself and the festival thus introduced: - jubile, ram’s horn, trumpet.

It comes from 2986 "yah-vahl" (
lby) meaning

A primitive root; properly to flow; causatively to bring (especially with pomp): - bring (forth), carry, lead (forth).

This is where we get the modern English word "bell". Everyone can now sing, in playing on the Hebrew, "Keseph Yovels" (Silver Bells).


This is the only alternative year that one cannot reap their produce besides the seventh year rest for the land, because hwhy wants the Israelites to take the time returning the items back to their brethren that year.


The Jubilee has been recently revealed through reference to Israel, starting in 1917:

1917: The Balfour Declaration: The foundation of the creation of the Statehoold of Israel
1967: The Six Days War: Jerusalem is recaptured by the Jews
2017: The Temple Mount?: By this year the Religious Jews' goal, which has always been the goal, is to build the Altar, if not the Temple, on the Temple Mount

Notice the two major events in a fifty year time span: The Balfour Declaration, and fifty years later The Six Days War. The next fifty years comes to 2017, and a new United States President was sworn in in January, who is Donald Trump. As of May 17th, 2017, President Trump will be going to Israel for the fiftieth anniversary (hint, hint) of the Jewish people reuniting Jerusalem after over 1900 years on May 22nd through the 24th, and President Trump is currently planned to be there on May 23rd. Also, as of this day, President Trump is still planning to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem later this month by not signing the waiver to delay the embassy move for six months, as the previous presidents since 1995 after Congress passed the bill.

The real question is what is going to happen regarding Israel in 2o17? This is most likely the time that the Jews will reclaim the Temple Mount area where they will build the Altar, at minimum, to restart the Temple sacrifices for the first time in about 2,000 years. Building the Temple will be their ultimate goal. It will most likely happen, because the demagogue of this world, as well as the politics of it, a.k.a. "the tares" are ripening for the acts of the Temple Mount to happen. I based this on Yeshua's statement in the Gospel of

Matthew 13:24 Another parable put He forth unto them, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.... 36 Then Yeshua sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and His disciples came unto Him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of Man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the Children of the Kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the Devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of Man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

The "tares" are the people of the world who are submitted to HaSatan, and they are about ripened for the Harvest. It is probable that it could occur this year in this Jubilee year for Israel. For the record, I am not setting dates, but this world has gone to the point that the current generation of these people of the world are unrepentant and unashamed of their violent actions and have no fear in breaking the righteous laws of law and order in this land.

In connection with this, last year in the Israeli Elections, Yehuda Glick, who has been outspoken for the Jews to pray on the Temple Mount, was elected to the Israeli Kenesset. This is another sign, for the next step, leading to the possibility to have the religious Jews to make the Altar, and maybe the Temple.


In verse fourteen it says "you shall not oppress a man his brother", and in verse seventeen it says "you shall not oppress a man his neighbor". Are there grammatical errors in these phrases?  Is 
hwhy saying for one not to use a man as a third party person, kind of like a hit man, to oppress his brother, or his neighbor, or both?

Indirectly related, Yeshua read the verse of Isaiah regarding a proclamation of liberty in a synagogue, and it's noted in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 4:16 And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Shabbath day, and stood up for to read. 17 And there was delivered unto Him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written, 18 The Spirit of hwhy is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of hwhy. 20 And He closed the book, and He gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on Him. 21 And He began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

This is the scripture from the book of Isaiah

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Adon, hwhy, is upon me; because hwhy hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

The question is, did this Gospel account occur on a Jubilee year? It's possible.

Indirectly related, Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that the time between Moses with the Israelites and this upcoming Jubilee, whether this year or next year, will be seventy Jubilees, and from Creation to this upcoming Jubilee year will be 120 Jubilees. In paraphrasing, Monte says that the number seventy is a highly significant spiritual number, and also that his opinion, as well as mine, is that hwhy might have made this the last Jubilee before the end times. These two Jubilee configurations, with the exception of the seven years tribulation, will bring us to the beginning of the seventh thousand years of the millenial reign of Yeshua on the earth.

Off the cuff
, the real Mount Sinai, located in Saudi Arabia is called "Jabal al Lawz". The Saudis used the word "Jabal" for mountain, but isn't it coincidental that the Arabic word is the similar Hebrew word for "jubilee".



Verses twenty through twenty four

20 And if you shall say, What shall we eat in the seventh year? Behold, we shall not sow, and we shall not gather ta-our produce: 21 And I shall command My Blessing to you on the sixth year, and shall make the produce for the three years. 22 And you shall sow ta the eighth year, and you shall eat from her produce until the ninth year; you shall eat the old until the coming of her produce, 23 and you shall not sell the land for destruction (extinction, perpetuity): for the land is to Me; for your are strangers and dwellers with Me. 24 And in all the land of your possession, you shall give a redemption for the land.

In verses twenty through twenty two,
hwhy says to them to not to worry and to trust in Him that He will supernaturally provide for them during the three years, between the sixth and eighth years, while they are not planting in the seventh year and planting in the eighth year.

Indirectly related, Yeshua talked about those who store up the grains for themselves, and it's noted in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 12:16 And He spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my grains? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my grains and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20 But hwhy said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward hwhy.

In my opinion, the grains are symbolically the people the owner is to use to have spread the Word and the Gospel, while the owner is symbolically the head leader of an assembly, like "mega churches", and want to store more people to make one's "church empire" grow. By then, the leader could take it easy from the revenues from the people, instead of having his followers spread the Gospel and the Word.

Also,
Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries noted that in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), Yeshua also says for us not worry about our lives, and it's located in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if hwhy so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of hwhy, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

It is possible that Yeshua said this account during the Shemitah year. As hwhy said not to worry for the three years while the period of the land's year of rest occurrs, so did Yeshua said not to worry for our lives.

Notice that
hwhy says the year for the sowing is in the eighth year, and the year for the reaping in the ninth year, where there is only seven years in the seven year cycle. Why did hwhy continue the count up to the ninth year? Because He used it as a means to how to explain the process better to the People, and it doesn't effect the change in the seven year cycles, with the exception of the one Jubilee year after the seventh seven year cycle. That means that throughout these seven year cycles, with the exception of the extra Shemitah year, the Israelites would only be able to potentially sow and reap for five of the seven year cycles. This includes the last seven year cycle occurring with the extra fiftieth Jubilee year, because the Jubilee year is also a rest year for the land from sowing and reaping.

But what about the Jubilee year? How does that fit in to the three year process of the three years without harvesting? Does the Commandment apply to three consecutive years including making the Jubilee year as the second year of provision, or does the three years skip the Jubilee year, because it's an "independant" year, not counted in the seven year cycle?

This is a chart of a typical seven year land rest cycle, showing the sowing in the eighth year and the reaping in the ninth year.

Land Rest


There are two options of the land rest cycle during the Jubilee year. This is the first option chart showing the land rest in the seven year rest cycle, with the fiftieth Jubilee year as part of the three years process

Land Rest


This second chart shows the land rest three years process skipping the Jubilee year as the independant year, with an extra year of land rest

Land Rest


Also, as I mentioned earlier regarding the Shemittah year, the Torah in Exodus requires the males to bring both of the first fruits to 
hwhy in Jerusalem every year. This Commandment still applies to the Jubilee year as well, by taking the first fruits of the unharvested grain to hwhy during the year of the seventh year land rest, as well as the fiftieth Jubilee year.



Verses twenty five through twenty eight


25 If your brother shall be poor, and has sold his possession, and his redeemer that is related to him shall come near and redeem ta the sold thing of his brother. 26 And if shall not be to him a man of a redeemer, and his hand was able, and finds as enough of his redemption; 27 And shall compute ta-the years of his sale, and shall return ta-the remainder (surplus) whom was sold to him to the man; and shall return to his possession. 28 And if his hand has not found enough to return to him, and shall be his sold thing in the hands of the one buying him until the year of the Jubilee, and shall go out on the Jubilee and shall return to his possession.

In the United States, throughout the years and decades, there have been too many land exchanges, too many land sales, and too many zoning changes from the locations where homes used to settle.
It is almost impossible to even do a Jubilee today in the state this nation is in. If the government decided to enact this Commandment, they would most likely have to start it with the current generations of peoples, as well as noting the earliest predicesors who's current descendant resides.

Another reason that a Jubilee year would be impossible to do today for lands and homes, because the United States has a "Trump Card", or "Wild Card", and it is called "Eminent Domain". According to Wikipedia, this Eminent Domain is also practiced, by different countries, in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the Philippines, and Hong Kong. They can take the land and home away and use it for whatever use they want, against your right to keep it. The government would be ultimately responsible for returning the land and homes back to the people, and it is unlikely they will never return them at all. Anyone heard of the famous sixties band "The Beach Boys"? One would think that their homes they grew up would be spared because of their fame status. But in the mid-1980's, the U.S. Government overrode that by having the Century Highway go through their original community and tore their community's houses down including their own. There is a historic landmark of the group, originally located where the Wilson brothers' childhood home once stood

Beach Boys

Verses twenty nine through thirty-one


29 And if a man dwelling at a walled city shall sell a house, and she shall be his redemption until the end of the year of his sale; she shall be the days of his redemption. 30 And if is not redeemed to himself until the fullness of a complete year, and shall remain the house which is in the city which was to him a wall for security to his buyer for his generations: shall not go out in the Jubilee. 31 And the houses of the villages which has not a wall all around to them shall be computed upon the fields of the land, she shall be to him for a redemption: and shall go out in the Jubilee.

This is one of the exceptions to the rule of The Jubilee.
The difference between a home in a walled city and an island home is that the home in the walled city is similar to today's condominiums. The person who bought a home in a condominium is that person's home, but the outer shell wall of the entire condominium belongs to someone else, in which every owner of each condominium shares the same wall. The condiminium's main outside wall does not belong to the person.

Indirectly related, in the walled city of Jericho, Rachel lived next to the wall, and the wall was part of the fortress, as it's noted in the book of Joshua

Joshua 2:12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by 
hwhy, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father's house, and give me a true token: 13 And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death. 14 And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when hwhy hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee. 15 Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.

In this week's Torah portion passage, when an Israelite who used to own the home he could not redeem it by a year of days end, which would have been a Biblical 360 days, whether it began in Ethanim/Tishri 1, or Sivan 20 or any other Biblical day. The new owner of that home keeps it for himself and for his descendants after him, until he gives it to someone else. This Commandment is one of the factors immune to the Jubilee year, and that the home in the city wall cannot be returned to the previous owner.

Indirectly related, Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that the state of Oklahoma has a similar "One Year Law", where, for an example, if a person sells a car to another person, the previous owner could change his mind and get the car back within one year's time.

Looking at the word WALLED

The Hebrew word for walled is "khoh-mah"- Khet, Vav, Mem, Heh (
hmwx). It is from Strong's Concordance number  2346, and its definition

Feminine active participle of an unused root apparently meaning to join; a wall of protection: - wall, walled.

This is where we get our modern English word "home".



Verses thirty two through thirty four

32 And the cities of the Levites of the houses of the cities of their possession, she shall be a Redemption of Ages to the Levites. 33 And whomever shall redeem from the Levites, and shall go out a sale of the house, and shall be a city of their possession in the Jubilee: for the houses of the cities of the Levites, she is their possession in the midst of the Sons of Israel. 34 And a field of a pasture land of their cities shall not be sold; for he is to them a Possession of Ages.

It is probable that this Commandment passage was based when Joseph, who was Viceroy of Egypt, did not sell the land of the Egyptian priests to Pharaoh. It's noted in the Torah portion of Va-Y'khi, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 47:20
And Joseph purchased ta-all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh; for Egypt has sold him each one his field, for the famine was strong upon them: and the land, she became to Pharaoh. 21 And ta-the people had him gone over to cities from the end of the border of Egypt, and unto his border. 22 Only the ground of the priests were not bought; for the portion to the priests were from ta Pharaoh, and they ate ta-their portion which Pharaoh gave to them: upon thus, they did not sell ta-their grounds.

Hey, wait a minute!!! Aren't we all priests in Yeshua, as it says in the book of Revelation

Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto hwhy and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Based on this Torah passage, we are immuned for our homes. So where's our immunity for our homes? Shouldn't the government stop taxing us, since we are priests in Yeshua? Think of it, no more mortgages, or estate taxes or other kinds of bills for our homes. Dream on.

Looking at the word PASTURE LAND

The Hebrew word for pasture land is "meegrash"- Mem, Gimel, Resh, Shin (
srgm). Is is from Strong's Concordance number 4054, and its definition

From H1644; a suburb (that is, open country whither flocks are driven for pasture); hence the area around a building, or the margin of the sea: - cast out, suburb.

from 1644 "gah-rash" (
srg), and its definition

A primitive root; to drive out from a possession; especially to expatriate or divorce: - cast up (out), divorced (woman), drive away (forth, out), expel, X surely put away, trouble, thrust out.

This Hebrew root word is where we get our modern English words "graze", and "grass".



Verses thirty five through thirty eight


35 And if your brother shall be poor, and has failed his hand with you; and you shall take hold on him for a stranger and a dweller; and shall live with you, 36 you shall not take from him of interest (usary) or increase: you shall fear from your Elohim; and your brother shall live with you. 37 And you shall not give to him ta-your silver on interest, and you shall not give your food on increase. 38 I am hwhy, your Elohim, whom I have brought you out from the land of Egypt to give to you ta-the land of Canaan, to be to you for Elohim.

In other words, an Israelite who takes in an Israelite brother to take care of him is not to take advantage of the brother's service for his own home by adding interest for the duration of his brother's residence. This would be compared to a home owner renting part of their home to another person, and taking advantage of that rentee by jacking up the rent prices, or adding fees while the rentee is under contract.



Verses thirty nine through forty six

39 And if your brother with you shall be poor, and was sold to you; you shall not make over on him the service of a servant: 40 Shall be with you as a hired one, as a dweller (sojourner), shall serve with you until the year of the Jubilee: 41 And he shall go out from you, he and his sons with him, and shall return to his family, and shall return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For they are My Servants whom I have brought them out from the land of Egypt: they shall not be sold from a sale of a servant. 43 You shall not tread down on him on cruelty; and you shall fear from your Elohim. 44 And your male servant and your female servant whom they shall be to you, from ta the nations who are all around you; you shall buy them for a male servant and a female servant. 45 And also from the sons of the dwellers that are sojourning with you, you shall buy from them, and from their families who are with you whom they have birthed in your land: and they shall be to you for a possession. 46 And you shall inherit them for your sons after you of a possession for ages: on them, they shall be servants: and on your brothers of the Sons of Israel, each among his brother, you shall not rule against him in cruelty.

This is a different issue compared to the Commandment of an Israelite that is bought as a slave for six years and then released in the seventh year, as noted in the Torah portion of Mishpatim, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 21:2 If you purchase a Hebrew servant, shall serve six years: and in the seventh, shall go out free for nothing.

If one thinks about it, the only exception of this seven year issue is if an Israelite brother becomes a servant under the Israelite owner's home in the middle of the seven year period, he goes out free in the Jubilee year.

Like verses thirty five through thirty eight of this week's Torah portion passage, the Israelite who is in possession of his brethren is not to treat him cruelly. In the issue of the Jubilee year, the Israelite is to be set free, whereas any foreigner who are bought by an Israelite can be kept to be a servant, and are not included in the Jubilee.




Verses forty seven through fifty five

47 And if you shall lift up a hand of a stranger or a dweller with you, and your brother is poor with him, and is sold to a stranger of a dweller with you, or of a naturalized one from the family of a stranger: 48 After has been sold, you shall be a redeemer to him; one from his brothers shall redeem him: 49 or his uncle, or a son of his uncle shall redeem him, or from a relative of his flesh from his family shall redeem him; or an enabler of his hand, and shall redeem. 50 And shall compute with his buyer from the year of his selling to him until the year of the Jubilee: and and his sale shall be of silver on the number of years, shall be with him as the days of hireling. 51 If shall be yet many on the years, by their mouths shall return his redemption with the silver from his purchase. 52 And if few remain on the years until the year of the Jubilee, and shall compute to him according to the mouth of his years, shall return ta-his redemption. 53 Shall be with him as a hired servant year by year: shall not rule on cruelty in your eyes. 54 And if shall not redeem on these, and he and his sons with him shall go out in the year of the Jubilee, 55 for the Sons of Israel are servants to Me; They are My servants whom I brought them out from the land of Egypt: I am hwhy, your Elohim.

This would be like an Israelite brother being held hostage by a foreigner, but the advantage is, that they are living under the home of his Israelite brother. This is where the Israelite owner who has his brother under his roof is given the opportunity to play "the Redeemer" and redeem his Israelite brother while the brother is under his own roof, and is currently enslaved to the foreigner who is under the owner's roof as well. But if the Israelite owner cannot redeem his brother, the Israelite brother has a Trump card, or Wild Card- the Jubilee Card- and can leave in that year and break his enslavement to the foreigner as long as both of them are under the Israelite owner's roof. The key point of this, is that it has to occur under the headship in the household of a fellow Israelite who has both the foreigner, and his Israelite brother who is under the ownership of the foreigner. 
hwhy also reminded the People in the verse fifty five that He delivered them from the house of bondage which is in The First Commandment

Exodus 20:
2 I am hwhy your Elohim, who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.

These are symbolic meanings for this week's Torah passage:

Brother: We in the world
Stranger/Dweller/Naturalized of a Family of a Stranger: The World
Silver: Redemption
Redeemer: Yeshua

This is like us before we became believers in Yeshua who were under the slavery in the world, and the world is a stranger and dweller and a native born of foreigners. But the key is that both of us are under the the Creator, and the Creator, who is our Heavenly Father, sent Yeshua to be "the Redeemer" and "the Jubilee Redeemer" for us to deliver us from being under the slavery of the world, by purchasing us with the Silver of Redemption through Yeshua's Blood. As the Christian rock group Petra sang in on of their songs, which was also their album title, "We are not of this world".




Going back to the account of the Southern House of Judah, regarding the prophet Jeremiah prophecying that the land is going to rest seventy years, while they were in Babylonian captivity. Glory to hwhy for revealing this to me. The destruction of Jerusalem did not occur in the 490th year. I'll explain.

When Jeremiah mentioned the 490 years, he didn't include the fiftieth Jubilee year in each of the forty nine year cycles. We have to remember that the Jubilee year is an "independant" year that is not part of the seven year cycle. What we need to do is to configure how many Jubilee years occurred in these 490 years:

49 years / 490 years = 10

That means there were ten Jubilee years the prophet Jeremiah didn't include in the 490 years, nor were calculated in the prophet's passage. Now we add them:

490 years + 10 Jubilee years = 500 years.

It is my humble, but strong opionion, that the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple occurred on "the 500th year", on "the Tenth Jubilee", in which the number ten represents "completion", like the Ten Words (Commandments). YHWH waited until the tenth Jubilee to see if the People in Jerusalem, in the Southern House of Judah, was going to honor His Commandment of the rest for the land in the seventieth Shemitah year, and in the tenth Jubilee year. When they didn't,s hwhy passed judgment against the Southern House of Judah, instead of a positive one for this 500th year, which includes the ten Jubilee years. hwhy allowed these years to occur, because The Southern House of Judah did not follow the Commandment of the Jubilee up to this tenth Jubilee to restore everything back, and as a result of failing to follow this Commandment in these ten jubilees, they were sent into Babylonian captivity.







CHAPTER 26

Leviticus 26:1-2

Lev 26:1 You shall not make idols or vessel images for yourselves, and you shall not raise up a pillar for yourselves, and you shall not put an image of stone in your land to bow yourselves upon her: for I am 
hwhy, your Elohim. 2 You shall keep ta-My Shabbaths, and you shall revere My Sanctuary: I am hwhy.

First, I personally don't know why they put the first two verses of this chapter on this week's Torah portion. If anything, it should have been part of the next Torah portion. Maybe it was added to make an ending thought to keep the Second and Fourth Words (Commandments), as well as revering His Sanctuary. Those are my thoughts.


This account is based on the Second Word (Commandment), as noted in the Torah portion of Yithro, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 20:4 You shall not make for yourself a vessel-image, or any likeness that is in the heavens from above, or that is in the earth below, or that is in the waters from under the earth: 5 You shalt not bow to them, and you shall not serve them: for I am hwhy, your Elohim, a jealous El, visiting the iniquity of the fathers, upon the sons, upon the thirds, and upon the fourths to those hating Me; 6 And doing mercy to thousands to those loving Me, and to those keeping My Commandments.

Looking at the following words:

VESSEL IMAGES

The Hebrew word for vessel images is "peh-sehl"- Peh, Samek, Lamed (
lop). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6459, and its definition

From H6458; an idol: - carved (graven) image.

from 6458 "pah-sahl" (
lop), and its definition

A primitive root; to carve, whether wood or stone: - grave, hew.

This is where we get our modern English word "vessel".


PILLAR

The Hebrew word for pillar is "mah-tseyvah"- Mem, Tsade, Bet, Heh (
hbum). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4676, and its definition

Feminine (causative) participle of H5324; something stationed, that is, a column or (memorial stone); by analogy an idol: - garrison, (standing) image, pillar.

from 5324 "nah-tsahv" (
bun), and its definition

A primitive root; to station, in various applications (literally or figuratively): - appointed, deputy, erect, establish, X Huzzah [by mistake for a proper name], lay, officer, pillar, present, rear up, set (over, up), settle, sharpen, stablish, (make to) stand (-ing, still, up, upright), best state.

This would be similar to the U.S. Native's totem poles.


IMAGE

The Hebrew word for image is "mahs-keeth" Mem, Shin, Kaph, Yod, Tav (
tyksm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4906, and its definiton

From the same as H7906; a figure (carved on stone, the wall, or any object); figuratively imagination: -  conceit, image (-ry), picture, X wish.

from 7906 "sey-khoo" (
wks), and its definition

From an unused root apparently mean to surmount; an observatory (with the article); Seku, a place in Palestine: - Sechu.

That would be our modern day reliefs.

Notice in verse two that 
hwhy doesn't say "You shall keep My Commandments and My Statutes" as He mentioned times before. Why He worded it that way, I don't know.

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that those who first come into the Messianic/Hebraic Roots movement, the first thing they are convicted to do in the Messianic/Hebraic Roots movement, by the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), is following the Word (Commandment) of "Shabbath", which is the Fourth Word (Commandment). It is also noted in the Torah portion of Yithro, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 20:8 Remember ta-the Shabbath Day, to sanctify him. 9 Six days you shall serve, and you shall do all your work: 10 And the seventh day is the Shabbath of hwhy, your Elohim: You shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your animal, or your stranger who is in your gates: 11 For six days, hwhy made ta-the heavens and ta-the earth, ta-the sea, and ta-all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day: upon thus, hwhy blessed ta-the Shabbath day, and sanctified him.

This is the Word (Commandment) that our Non-Hebrew Roots believers who follow the Roman Church's act of changing the Shabbath from Friday night to the middle of Saturday night, at midnight. During Biblical times, there wasn't a time clock to count the time at night, so there was no way to figure out what midnight is, wherever midnight is.




That ends this week's Torah portion commentary.
