Deuteronomy 24:6
Context
Additional Laws

6No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he takes a man's life to pledge. 7If a man be found stealing any of his brothers of the children of Israel, and makes merchandise of him, or sells him; then that thief shall die; and you shall put evil away from among you. 8Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that you observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so you shall observe to do. 9Remember what the LORD your God did to Miriam by the way, after that you were come forth out of Egypt. 10When you do lend your brother any thing, you shall not go into his house to fetch his pledge. 11You shall stand abroad, and the man to whom you do lend shall bring out the pledge abroad to you. 12And if the man be poor, you shall not sleep with his pledge: 13In any case you shall deliver him the pledge again when the sun goes down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless you: and it shall be righteousness to you before the LORD your God. 14You shall not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of your brothers, or of your strangers that are in your land within your gates: 15At his day you shall give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down on it; for he is poor, and sets his heart on it: lest he cry against you to the LORD, and it be sin to you. 16The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin. 17You shall not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge: 18But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and the LORD your God redeemed you there: therefore I command you to do this thing. 19When you cut down your harvest in your field, and have forgot a sheaf in the field, you shall not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. 20When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 21When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow. 22And you shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt: therefore I command you to do this thing.
