Deuteronomy 24

  10 "If you lend anything to your neighbor, do not enter his house to pick up the item he is giving as security.11 You must wait outside while he goes in and brings it out to you.12 If your neighbor is poor and gives you his cloak as security for a loan, do not keep the cloak overnight.13 Return the cloak to its owner by sunset so he can stay warm through the night and bless you, and the LORD your God will count you as righteous.
  14 "Never take advantage of poor and destitute laborers, whether they are fellow Israelites or foreigners living in your towns.15 You must pay them their wages each day before sunset because they are poor and are counting on it. If you don't, they might cry out to the LORD against you, and it would be counted against you as sin.
  16 "Parents must not be put to death for the sins of their children, nor children for the sins of their parents. Those deserving to die must be put to death for their own crimes.
  17 "True justice must be given to foreigners living among you and to orphans, and you must never accept a widow's garment as security for her debt.18 Always remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the LORD your God redeemed you from your slavery. That is why I have given you this command.
  19 "When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans, and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.20 When you beat the olives from your olive trees, don't go over the boughs twice. Leave the remaining olives for the foreigners, orphans, and widows.21 When you gather the grapes in your vineyard, don't glean the vines after they are picked. Leave the remaining grapes for the foreigners, orphans, and widows.22 Remember that you were slaves in the land of Egypt. That is why I am giving you this command.
