Deuteronomy Chapter 15 Summary

Deuteronomy Chapter 15 summary began with the order of the Jubilee or the release. After seven years, Israel was to make a release. After this manner it would be; every creditor that lends to his neighbor was to release it or forgive it for the Lord’s sake.

They could continue to extract from a foreigner, but not from their own brother. The only exception to this is if there are no poor among you.

If they are poor and broke, after seven years, you are to release them from their debt.

This is if Israel keeps God’s commandments.

They will lend to many nations and not borrow, and rule over many nations and not be ruled over. God reminds Israel to care deeply for the poor, open your hand WIDE it says for the poor, for all his needs and his wants.

Deuteronomy Chapter 15 Summary

God warns Israel not to get “smart” when the seventh year is approaching and try to wickedly etch their way out of taking care of the poor.

If the poor man cries to God, God will hear him and it will be sin to you. God tells Israel to give and be happy in doing so. This is how a King takes care of all His citizens, through a welfare program or commonwealth program.

If you give cheerfully, the Lord will continue to bless you in all your work. God says the poor will never cease out of the land, this is why God commands Israel to take care of them.

This is how God wants us to care for each other and for Israel to remember how they were in Egypt and not put that type of burden on their strangers.

We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
