Behar: "On the Mount"
Leviticus 25:1 - 26:2

Honor

Justice

These are important to the L-rd

The land is His land

And He offers it to His people

With the unwritten deed they tend it

Prune it

Plow it

And upon the seventh year honor it with rest

Upon such G-d has made a living thing
and a jubilation

A year of joy
is to be celebrated

Every 50 years

With the blowing of the horn
and the freeing of the slave

Home is to be sought by all
and each is to traverse there
seeking relative and kind

Remembering the L-rd spins all things into being

From the seedling of spring
to the laborer of the field

Growing

Toiling

In honor of their L-rd
