In the previous article, we have shared with you why the land must be left to lie fallow. YHVH is the owner of the land; we are the stewards and are to do what He commands. Apart from that, we have learned how the land benefits from keeping this commandment by rejuvenating and regenerating itself. We then benefit from the crops that are produced. Without letting the land rest; the soil eventually dies and becomes barren. YHVH has another reason for us to keep this commandment, a very important reason, it is about debt and poverty.
