Leviticus 25:47-49

Context

25:47 “‘If a resident foreigner who is with you prospers 1  and your brother becomes impoverished with regard to him so that 2  he sells himself to a resident foreigner who is with you or to a member 3  of a foreigner’s family, 25:48 after he has sold himself he retains a right of redemption. 4  One of his brothers may redeem him, 25:49 or his uncle or his cousin 5  may redeem him, or anyone of the rest of his blood relatives – his family 6  – may redeem him, or if 7  he prospers he may redeem himself.

1 tn Heb “And if the hand of a foreigner and resident with you reaches” (cf. v. 26 for this idiom).

2 tn Heb “and.” The Hebrew conjunction ו (vav, “and”) can be considered to have resultative force here.

3 tn Heb “offshoot, descendant.”

4 tn Heb “right of redemption shall be to him.”

5 tn Heb “the son of his uncle.”

6 tn Heb “or from the remainder of his flesh from his family.”

7 tc The LXX, followed by the Syriac, actually has “if,” which is not in the MT.
