228 - SELLING THE OPEN LANDS OF THE LEVITES


Leviticus 25:34 -- “But the field of the common-land of their cities may not be sold, for it is their perpetual possession.”
Numbers 35:2-5 -- 2 “Command the children of Israel that they give the Levites cities to dwell in from the inheritance of their possession, and you shall also give the Levites common-land around the cities. 3 They shall have the cities to dwell in; and their common-land shall be for their cattle, for their herds, and for all their animals. 4 The common-land of the cities which you shall give the Levites shall extend from the wall of the city outward a thousand cubits all around. 5 And you shall measure outside the city on the east side two thousand cubits, on the south side two thousand cubits, on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand cubits. The city shall be in the middle. This shall belong to them as common-land for the cities.”

The prohibition is directed to the Levites, who are forbidden to alter this demarcation, change urban lands into open lands, or open lands into urban, or fields into open lands, or open lands into fields.
