25 “‘If one of your fellow Israelites becomes poor and sells some of their property, their nearest relative(A) is to come and redeem(B) what they have sold. 26 If, however, there is no one to redeem it for them but later on they prosper(C) and acquire sufficient means to redeem it themselves, 27 they are to determine the value for the years(D) since they sold it and refund the balance to the one to whom they sold it; they can then go back to their own property.(E)
