Leviticus 25:23 Parallel
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Overreaching and oppression God would avenge; they were therefore to fear before Him. On the other hand, if they kept His commandments and judgments, He would take care that they should dwell in the land in safety (secure, free from anxiety), and be satisfied with the abundance of its produce. In this way Leviticus 25:18-22 fit on exceedingly well to what precedes.

(Note: To prove that this verse is an interpolation made by the Jehovist into the Elohistic writings, Knobel is obliged to resort to two groundless assumptions: viz., (1) to regard Leviticus 25:23 and Leviticus 25:24, which belong to what follows (Leviticus 25:25.) and lay down the general rule respecting the possession and redemption of land, as belonging to what precedes and connected with Leviticus 25:14-17; and (2) to explain Leviticus 25:18-22 in the most arbitrary manner, as a supplementary clause relating to the sabbatical year, whereas the promise that the sixth year should yield produce enough for three years (Leviticus 25:21, Leviticus 25:22) shows as clearly as possible that they treat of the year of jubilee together with the seventh sabbatical year which preceded it, and in Leviticus 25:20 the seventh year is mentioned simply as the beginning of the two years' Sabbath which the land was to keep without either sowing or reaping.)
