A SAMPLING OF GOD'S LAWS Restitution, truth, kindness, justice, and a restraint on power. Exodus 22 & 23 1"If a man steals an ox or a sheep, and slaughters or sells it,he shall restore five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep. 2 If the thief is found breaking in, and is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. 3 If the sun has risen, there shall be guilt for his bloodshed. 22"You shall not afflict any widow or fatherless child. 23 If you afflict them, and they cry to Me, I will hear their cry. 24And My wrath will become hot, and I will kill you with the sword; so that your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless. 25"If you lend money to any of My people who are poor, you shall not be like a moneylender to him; you shall not charge interest. 26 If you ever take your neighbor's garment as a pledge, you shall return it before the sun goes down. 27For that is his only covering. What will he sleep in? And it will be that when he cries to Me, I will hear, for I am gracious. 28"You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people. 1"You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice. 3You shall not show partiality to a poor man in his dispute. 4"If your enemy's ox or donkey goes astray, you shall bring it back to him again. 5 If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying under its burden, you shall surely help him with it. 6"You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute. 7Keep far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent. For I will not justify the wicked. 8You shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the discerning and perverts the words of the righteous. 9"You shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heartof a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 10"Six years you shall sow your land and gather its produce. 11The seventh year you shall let it lie fallow, that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave, the beasts of the field may eat. In like manner do with your vineyard and olive grove. 12''Six days you shall do your work, and on the seventh day you shall rest, that your ox and donkey may rest, and the son of your female servant and the stranger may be refreshed. 13"In all that I have said to you, be circumspect and make no mention of other gods, nor let it be heard from your mouth.''
