Laws Protecting the Vulnerable

21 "You must not exploit a foreign resident or oppress him, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. 22 "You must not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. 23 If you do mistreat them, they will no doubt cry to Me, and I will certainly hear their cry. 24 My anger will burn, and I will kill you with the sword; then your wives will be widows and your children fatherless. 25 "If you lend money to My people-to the poor person among you, you must not be like a moneylender to him; you must not charge him interest. 26 "If you ever take your neighbor's cloak as collateral, return it to him before sunset. 27 For it is his only covering; it is the clothing for his body.a What will he sleep in? And if he cries out to Me, I will listen because I am compassionate.
