4:4
我想当赎那块地的是你,其次是我,以外再没有别人了。你可以在这里的人面前,和我本国的长老面前说明,你若肯赎就赎,若不肯赎就告诉我。那人回答说,我肯赎。
I thought I should bring the matter to your attention and suggest that you buy it in the presence of these seated here and in the presence of the elders of my people. If you will redeem it, do so. But if you will not, tell me, so I will know. For no one has the right to do it except you, and I am next in line." "I will redeem it," he said.

从前,在以色列中要定夺什么事,或赎回,或交易,这人就脱鞋给那人。以色列人都以此为证据。
(Now in earlier times in Israel, for the redemption and transfer of property to become final, one party took off his sandal and gave it to the other. This was the method of legalizing transactions in Israel.)
