Abstract

This article examines the validity of the laws on setting a Hebrew man or woman free and the cancellation of debts in the seventh or sabbatical year and the year of jubilee as these laws are manifested in the Pentateuch. After the relevant laws have been compared, they are tested in a broader Biblical context. Although no practical means or ways can be prescribed, the final result verifies the principle of restitution or affirmation.
