Creative and providential

When God says do not harvest during My sabbatical year He is not speaking out of a what might seem like an arbitrary willfulness, He is expressing the natural consequence of His being the Creator. 
God speaks in the Bible as an expression of His particular creative and providential posture vis-a-vis the world. He is not bespeaking an ethical stance so much as He is trying to lay out the implications of the world's having been created the way it was, the way He created it.
