At the end of [every] seven years thou shalt make a release.
And this [is] the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth [ought] unto his neighbour shall release [it]; he shall not exact [it] of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD'S release.
Of a foreigner thou mayest exact [it again]: but [that] which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of [every] seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,
Then the king made a great feast unto all his princes and his servants, [even] Esther's feast; and he made a release to the provinces, and gave gifts, according to the state of the king.

Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.

But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
I will therefore chastise him, and release [him].
(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this [man], and release unto us Barabbas:
Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
