Leviticus 25:20 Commentary - Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers (Old and New Testaments)

(20) What shall we eat the seventh year ?—The Lawgiver here anticipates an objection on the part of those who are called upon to abstain from cultivating the land in the sabbatical year, and who are overanxious about the provisions of their families.

Behold, we shall not sow.—That is, are forbidden to sow. (See Lev. 25:4.)

Nor gather in our increase.—That is, we are even prohibited to gather the spontaneous growths and store them up, and are commanded to leave “the increase” in the field. (See Lev. 25:7.)
