Meaning of SABBATICAL YEAR

 
WordNet Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
[n]  a sabbatical leave lasting one year
 
 See Also: sabbatical, sabbatical leave

 

 

Easton Bible Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

every seventh year, during which the land, according to the law of Moses, had to remain uncultivated (Lev. 25:2-7; comp. Ex. 23:10, 11, 12; Lev. 26:34, 35). Whatever grew of itself during that year was not for the owner of the land, but for the poor and the stranger and the beasts of the field. All debts, except those of foreigners, were to be remitted (Deut. 15:1-11). There is little notice of the observance of this year in Biblical history. It appears to have been much neglected (2 Chr. 36:20, 21).
