LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORS Laws of compassion and concern. Leviticus 19
9"When you reap the harvest, you shall not wholly reap the corners of your field, nor gather the gleanings. 10You shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the Lord your God. 11"You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12You shall not swear by My name falsely, nor profane the name of your God. 13You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning. 14You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but shall fear your God. l5"You shall do no injustice in judgment. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor. 16You shall not go about as a talebearer among your people; nor shall you take a stand against the life of your neighbor. 17You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely rebuke your neighbor, and not bear sin because of him. 18You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. 23"When you come into the land, and have planted trees for food, three years it shall not be eaten. 24 In the fourth year all its fruit shall be holy, a praise to the Lord. 25 In the fifth year you may eat its fruit. 26"You shall not eat anything with the blood, nor shall you practice divination or soothsaying. 27You shall not shave around the sides of your head, nor shall you disfigure the edges of your beard. 28You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord. 29Do not prostitute your daughter lest the land become full of wickedness. 30"You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary. 3l"Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them. 32'You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man. 33"If a stranger dwells with you in your land, you shall not mistreat him. 34The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in Egypt: I am the Lord your God. 35"You shall do no injustice in judgment, in measurement of length, weight, or volume. 36You shall have honest scales, honest weights: I am the Lord who brought you out of Egypt."
