Deuteronomy 24:9-19 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
9 Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam along the way after you came out of Egypt.1 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.2 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 pledge3 in your possession. 13 Return his cloak to him by sunset4 so that he may sleep in it.5 Then he will thank you, and it will be regarded as a righteous act in the sight of the LORD your God.6 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.7 15 Pay him his wages each day before sunset, because he is poor8 and is counting on it.9 Otherwise he may cry to the LORD against you, and you will be guilty of sin.10 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.11 17 Do not deprive the alien or the fatherless12 of justice,13 or take the cloak of the widow as a pledge. 18 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt14 and the LORD your God redeemed you from there. That is why I command you to do this. 19 When you are harvesting in your field and you overlook a sheaf, do not go back to get it.15 Leave it for the alien,16 the fatherless and the widow,17 so that the LORD your God may bless18 you in all the work of your hands.
