Deuteronomy 23:15
Context
Miscellaneous Laws

15You shall not deliver to his master the servant which is escaped from his master to you: 16He shall dwell with you, even among you, in that place which he shall choose in one of your gates, where it likes him best: you shall not oppress him. 17There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. 18You shall not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD your God for any vow: for even both these are abomination to the LORD your God. 19You shall not lend on usury to your brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of any thing that is lent on usury: 20To a stranger you may lend on usury; but to your brother you shall not lend on usury: that the LORD your God may bless you in all that you set your hand to in the land where you go to possess it. 21When you shall vow a vow to the LORD your God, you shall not slack to pay it: for the LORD your God will surely require it of you; and it would be sin in you. 22But if you shall forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in you. 23That which is gone out of your lips you shall keep and perform; even a freewill offering, according as you have vowed to the LORD your God, which you have promised with your mouth. 24When you come into your neighbor's vineyard, then you may eat grapes your fill at your own pleasure; but you shall not put any in your vessel. 25When you come into the standing corn of your neighbor, then you may pluck the ears with your hand; but you shall not move a sickle to your neighbor's standing corn.
