Hello Harley. I doubt if this passage is what you're thinking of, but it's the closest that I can think of that fulfils your requirements.

Leviticus 25:10: "And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile(e) unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family."

This whole chapter speaks about God's commandment to Israel concerning the Year of Jubilee. This was different to every seventh year that was a Sabbath of rest for the land - to refrain from planting & harvesting. The Year of Jubilee was seven Sabbaths of years (i.e. 49 years), at which time, on the fifteeth year, the proclamation would go out to that all slaves, those of Israel who were bonded to another as servants, matters of property sales, the state of the poor, etc., would find relief & be freed from their obligations. If the matter was about a person, they were set free to return to their homes. And all this was to remind Israel that they are bond-servants to God, were once in slavery in Egypt, but were freed from them by God's Hand & Power. Likewise, Israel ought to deal favourably with others as God dealt with them.

And 1 Kings 4:25 comes to mind: "And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, every man under his vine and under his fig tree, from Dan even to Beersheba, all the days of Solomon." Under King Solomon, Judah & Israel found peace so each person (family) were able to live securely in their own home (or, under his vine..under his fig tree).

However, if you're thinking of a New Testament verse, then if you could expand on the quote you gave.
