Then Moses commanded them: "At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Festival of Tabernacles,
I myself will stay at Mizpah to represent you before the Babylonians who come to us, but you are to harvest the wine, summer fruit and olive oil, and put them in your storage jars, and live in the towns you have taken over."
