Treasury of Scripture
And he shall reckon with him that bought him from the year that he was sold to him to the year of jubilee: and the price of his sale shall be according to the number of years, according to the time of an hired servant shall it be with him.
Leviticus 25:27 Then let him count the years of the sale thereof, and restore the remainder to the man to whom he sold it...
price of his sale This was a very equitable law, both to the sojourner to whom the man was sold, and to the Israelite who had been sold. The Israelite might redeem himself, or one of his kindred might redeem him; but this must not be done to the prejudice of his master. They were therefore to reckon the years he must have served, from that time till the jubilee; and then taking the current wages of a servant, per year, at that time, multiply the remaining years by that sum, and the aggregate was to be given to his master for his redemption. The Jews hold that the kindred of such a person were bound, if in their power, to redeem him, lest he should be swallowed up among the heathen; and we find (ne
Leviticus 5:8 And he shall bring them to the priest, who shall offer that which is for the sin offering first, and wring off his head from his neck...
) that this was done by the Jews on their return from the Babylonish captivity.
