 25:28
25:27 He shall then calculate the number of years for which [the land] has been sold, and return the balance to the buyer. He can then return to his hereditary land.
Vechishav et-shney mimkaro veheshiv et-ha'odef la'ish asher machar-lo veshav la'achuzato.
25:28 If he does not have the means to retrieve [the land], then that which he has sold shall remain with the buyer until the jubilee year. It is then released by the jubilee, so that [the original owner] can return to his hereditary land.
Ve'im lo-mats'ah yado dey hashiv lo vehayah mimkaro beyad hakoneh oto ad shnat hayovel veyatsa bayovel veshav la'achuzato.
