Exodus 23:5-15 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
5 If his donkey has fallen under its load, help him get the donkey to its feet again; don't just walk off. 6 "Do not deny justice to a poor person when he appears in court. 1 7 Do not make false accusations, and do not put an innocent person to death, for I will condemn anyone who does such an evil thing. 8 Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe makes people blind to what is right and ruins the cause of those who are innocent. 9 "Do not mistreat a foreigner; you know how it feels to be a foreigner, because you were foreigners in Egypt. 2 10 "For six years plant your land and gather in what it produces. 3 11 But in the seventh year let it rest, and do not harvest anything that grows on it. The poor may eat what grows there, and the wild animals can have what is left. Do the same with your vineyards and your olive trees. 12 "Work six days a week, but do no work on the seventh day, so that your slaves and the foreigners who work for you and even your animals can rest. 4 13 "Listen to everything that I, the Lord, have said to you. Do not pray to other gods; do not even mention their names. 14 "Celebrate three festivals a year to honor me 15 In the month of Abib, the month in which you left Egypt, celebrate the Festival of Unleavened Bread in the way that I commanded you. Do not eat any bread made with yeast during the seven days of this festival. Never come to worship me without bringing an offering. 5
