Moral and Ceremonial Laws
19 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: 2 Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.
11 You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another.
12 You shall not swear falsely by My name, and so defile the name of your God: I am the Lord.
13 You shall not defraud your neighbor or rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not stay with you all night until the morning.
14 You shall not curse the deaf, nor put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.
15 You shall do no unrighteousness in a court. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person who is great, but in righteousness, you shall judge your neighbor.
16 You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, nor shall you stand by while the life of your neighbor is in danger: I am the Lord.
17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely reason honestly with your neighbor, and not suffer sin because of him.
18 You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
