25:25 Fourth Reading
If your brother becomes impoverished and sells some of his hereditary land, a close relative can come and redeem what his kinsman has sold.
Ki-yamuch achicha umachar me'achuzato uva go'alo hakarov elav vega'al et mimkar achiv.
25:26 [The same is true] if a man does not have anyone to redeem it, but gains enough wealth to be able to redeem it himself.
Ve'ish ki lo yihyeh-lo go'el vehisigah yado umatsa kedey ge'ulato.



Commentary:

a close relative...
  (cf. Kiddushin 21b; Yad, Shemitah 11:18). This is true even against the buyer's will (Rashi). However, it can only be redeemed after two years have elapsed from the time of sale (Yad, Shemitah 11:9).
