Special laws were given to the Israelites in regard to the tilling of the soil. [Leviticus 25:1-7, quoted.] 6MR 394.1

These laws seem peculiar to those who have not known God's statutes; but the Lord knew better than man what arrangements to make with His people. These laws were written down, and the seventh year after they settled in Canaan was to be a Sabbath year.—Manuscript 121, 1899, 4, 5. (“Lessons from Israel,” typed August 24, 1899.) 6MR 394.2
