Deuteronomy 24:6-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 Do not take a pair of millstones--not even the upper one--as security for a debt, because that would be taking a man's livelihood as security.1 7 If a man is caught kidnapping one of his brother Israelites and treats him as a slave or sells him, the kidnapper must die.2 You must purge the evil from among you.3 8 In cases of leprousa diseases be very careful to do exactly as the priests, who are Levites,4 instruct you. You must follow carefully what I have commanded them.5 9 Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam along the way after you came out of Egypt.6 10 When you make a loan of any kind to your neighbor, do not go into his house to get what he is offering as a pledge.7 11 Stay outside and let the man to whom you are making the loan bring the pledge out to you. 12 If the man is poor, do not go to sleep with his pledge8 in your possession. 13 Return his cloak to him by sunset9 so that he may sleep in it.10 Then he will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the LORD your God.11 14 Do not take advantage of a hired man who is poor and needy, whether he is a brother Israelite or an alien living in one of your towns.12 15 Pay him his wages each day before sunset, because he is poor13 and is counting on it.14 Otherwise he may cry to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty of sin.15 16 Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor children put to death for their fathers; each is to die for his own sin.16
