(11) A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you.--According to the unanimous testimony of the authorities during the second Temple, including Philo (ii. 287-290) and Josephus (Antt. iii. 12, ? 3), the jubile was observed every fiftieth year, as is plainly enjoined both in the verse before us and in Leviticus 25:10. As the forty-ninth year is the sabbatical year and the fiftieth year the jubile, there were two successive fallow years.

Ye shall not sow.--As the fiftieth year is jubile, and partakes of the nature of the sabbatical year, sowing and reaping are forbidden.

Neither reap that which groweth of itself in it.--That is, the spontaneous growth of this year is not to be made into a regular harvest and stored up. (See Leviticus 25:5.)

Vine undressed.--See Leviticus 25:5.

Verses 11, 12. - So far as the tillage of the land went, the jubilee year was to have the same effect as a sabbatical year.
