Do not exploit the poor1 because they are poor and do not crush the needy in court,223
for the LORD will take up their case3 and will plunder those who plunder them.424
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered,
or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared.526
Do not be a man who strikes hands in pledge6 or puts up security for debts;
if you lack the means to pay, your very bed will be snatched from under you.728
Do not move an ancient boundary stone8 set up by your forefathers.
