What is this Pasuk coming to teach us?

1.

Rashi #1 and Ramban #1 (citing Kidushin 21a): It is coming to include houses and Avadim Ivrim in the obligation to release in the Yovel.

2.

Rashi #2 and Rashbam: With reference to the following Parshah, 1 it is coming to obligate the purchaser to return the field, in the event that the owner comes to redeem it before the Yovel any time after two years.

3.

Ramban and Seforno: It implies that the Dinim of Shemitah and Yovel apply throughout Eretz Yisrael, 2 but not in Chutz la'Aretz.

4.

Ramban #2: It is a command to allow property throughout Eretz Yisrael to be redeemed by the owner. 3

See Ramban's objection to this explanation.

2

Ramban: To remove it from the hand of the person who currently has it - as on Yeshayah, 48:20 and in Va'eira, 6:6 - because Hashem wants to redeem the land from the one to whom He did not initially give it as an inheritance.

3

Ramban: Only in the land of our ancestral inheritance, including Eiver ha'Yarden and the other lands that we possessed - not just the Land of Hashem, in which the Beis-Hamikdash was built.
