Exodus 22:22
Context
Laws of Social Responsibility

16And if a man entice a maid that is not betrothed, and lie with her, he shall surely endow her to be his wife. 17If her father utterly refuse to give her to him, he shall pay money according to the dowry of virgins. 18You shall not suffer a witch to live. 19Whoever lies with a beast shall surely be put to death. 20He that sacrifices to any god, save to the LORD only, he shall be utterly destroyed. 21You shall neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 22You shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. 23If you afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all to me, I will surely hear their cry; 24And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless. 25If you lend money to any of my people that is poor by you, you shall not be to him as an usurer, neither shall you lay on him usury. 26If you at all take your neighbor's raiment to pledge, you shall deliver it to him by that the sun goes down: 27For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he cries to me, that I will hear; for I am gracious. 28You shall not revile the gods, nor curse the ruler of your people. 29You shall not delay to offer the first of your ripe fruits, and of your liquors: the firstborn of your sons shall you give to me. 30Likewise shall you do with your oxen, and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with his dam; on the eighth day you shall give it me. 31And you shall be holy men to me: neither shall you eat any flesh that is torn of beasts in the field; you shall cast it to the dogs.
