Deuteronomy 15:7-17

BBE 7 If in any of your towns in the land which the Lord your God is giving you, there is a poor man, one of your countrymen, do not let your heart be hard or your hand shut to him; NIV 7 If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them. BBE 8 But let your hand be open to give him the use of whatever he is in need of. NIV 8 Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need. BBE 9 And see that there is no evil thought in your heart, moving you to say to yourself, The seventh year, the year of forgiveness is near; and so looking coldly on your poor countryman you give him nothing; and he will make an outcry to the Lord against you, and it will be judged as sin in you. NIV 9 Be careful not to harbor this wicked thought: “The seventh year, the year for canceling debts, is near,” so that you do not show ill will toward the needy among your fellow Israelites and give them nothing. They may then appeal to the LORD against you, and you will be found guilty of sin. BBE 10 But it is right for you to give to him, without grief of heart: for because of this, the blessing of the Lord your God will be on all your work and on everything to which you put your hand. NIV 10 Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. BBE 11 For there will never be a time when there are no poor in the land; and so I give orders to you, Let your hand be open to your countrymen, to those who are poor and in need in your land. NIV 11 There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be openhanded toward your fellow Israelites who are poor and needy in your land. BBE 12 If one of your countrymen, a Hebrew man or woman, becomes your servant for a price and does work for you six years, in the seventh year let him go free. NIV 12 If any of your people—Hebrew men or women—sell themselves to you and serve you six years, in the seventh year you must let them go free. BBE 13 And when you make him free, do not let him go away with nothing in his hands: NIV 13 And when you release them, do not send them away empty-handed. BBE 14 But give him freely from your flock and from your grain and your wine: in the measure of the wealth which the Lord your God has given you, you are to give to him. NIV 14 Supply them liberally from your flock, your threshing floor and your winepress. Give to them as the LORD your God has blessed you. BBE 15 And keep in mind that you yourself were a servant in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God made you free: so I give you this order today. NIV 15 Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and the LORD your God redeemed you. That is why I give you this command today. BBE 16 But if he says to you, I have no desire to go away from you; because you and your family are dear to him and he is happy with you; NIV 16 But if your servant says to you, “I do not want to leave you,” because he loves you and your family and is well off with you, BBE 17 Then take a sharp-pointed instrument, driving it through his ear into the door, and he will be your servant for ever. And you may do the same for your servant-girl. NIV 17 then take an awl and push it through his earlobe into the door, and he will become your servant for life. Do the same for your female servant.
