      1  The seventh year a year of release for the poor.
     7  It must be no let of lending or giving.
    12  An Hebrew servant, except he will not depart, must in the
        seventh year go forth free and well furnished.
    19  All firstling males of the cattle are to be sanctified unto
        the Lord.

    VERSE 4 
     - Save, etc.  or, To the end that there be no poor among you.
      Houbigant follows this marginal reading, to which he joins the
      end of the third verse, considering it as explanatory of the
      law; as if he had said, "Thou shalt not exact the debt that is
      due from thy brother, but thy hand shall release him, for this
      reason, that there may be no poor among you through your
      severity."  He justly contends that the phrase {ephes kee,}
      can here only mean, "to the end that," being equivalent to the
      French {afin que.}
    
    - greatly bless.  See on ch.

     - there be.
      Lest the preceding law might render the Israelites cautious in
      lending to the poor, Moses here warns them against being led
      by so mean a principle; but to lend liberally, and God would
      reward them.
    
    - thou shalt.

    VERSE 11 
     - the poor.
      Although Moses, by the statutes relative to the division of
      the land, and inheritance, and the inalienable nature of it,
      had studied to prevent any Israelite from being born poor, yet
      he exhorts them to the exercise of the tenderest compassion
      and most benevolent actions; and not to refuse assistance to
      the decayed Israelite, though the sabbatical year drew nigh.

    VERSE 13
       This is a most humane and merciful addition to the law in
      Ex 21:2-11; enforced upon the Israelites by the consideration
      of their Egyptian bondage.  As a faithful servant has made no
      property for himself while honestly serving his master, so
      now, when he quits his service, he has nothing to begin the
      world with except what the kindness of his master may bestow
      upon him as a remuneration for his zeal and fidelity.  Though
      what was to be bestowed upon servants is not fixed, yet they
      were to be liberally supplied.  (ver. 14.)

       * De 12:15,21,22
    - the roe-buck.
      {Tzevee,} in Arabic {zaby,} Chaldee and Syriac {tavya,}
      denotes the gazelle or antelope, so called from its stately
      beauty, as the word imports.  In size it is smaller than the
      roe, of an elegant form, and it motions are light and
      graceful.  It bounds seemingly without effort, and runs with
      such swiftness that few creatures can exceed it.  (2Sa 2:18.)
      Its fine eyes are so much celebrated as even to become a
      proverb; and its flesh is much esteemed for food among eastern
      nations, having a sweet, musky taste, which is highly
      agreeable to their palates.  (1Ki 4:23.)  If to these
      circumstances we add, that they are gregarious, and common all
      over the East, whereas the roe is either not known at all, or
      else very rare in these countries, little doubt can remain
      that the gazelle and not the roe is intended by the original
      word.
