Leviticus 25:20-22

Context
25:20 If you say, ‘What will we eat in the seventh year if we do not sow and gather our produce?’ 25:21 I will command my blessing for you in the sixth year so that it may yield 1  the produce 2  for three years, 25:22 and you may sow the eighth year and eat from that sixth year’s produce 3  – old produce. Until you bring in the ninth year’s produce, 4  you may eat old produce.

1 tn Heb “and it [i.e., the land] shall make the produce.” The Hebrew term וְעָשָׂת (vÿasat, “and it shall make”) is probably an older third feminine singular form of the verb (GKC 210 §75.m). Smr has the normal form.

2 tn Smr and LXX have “its produce” (cf. 25:3, 7, etc.) rather than “the produce.”

3 tn Heb “the produce,” referring to “the produce” of the sixth year of v. 21. The words “sixth year” are supplied for clarity.

4 tn Heb “until the ninth year, until bringing [in] its produce.”
