Exodus 23:11

but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat. In like manner you shall do with your vineyard and your olive grove.

ഏഴാം സംവത്സരത്തിലോ അതു ഉഴവുചെയ്യാതെ വെറുതെ ഇട്ടേക്ക; നിന്റെ ജനത്തിലെ ദരിദ്രന്മാർ അഹോവൃത്തി കഴിക്കട്ടെ; അവർ ശേഷിപ്പിക്കുന്നതു കാട്ടുമൃഗങ്ങൾ തിന്നട്ടെ. നിന്റെ മുന്തിരിത്തോട്ടവും ഒലിവുവൃക്ഷവും സംബന്ധിച്ചും അങ്ങനെ തന്നേ ചെയ്ക.

2 Corinthians 7:11
