Deuteronomy 24:17 Parallel
CommentaryKeil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament
Warning against oppressing the Poor. - Deuteronomy 24:10, Deuteronomy 24:11. If a loan of any kind was lent to a neighbour, the lender was not to go into his house to pledge (take) a pledge, but was to let the borrower bring the pledge out. The meaning is, that they were to leave it to the borrower to give a pledge, and not compel him to give up something as a pledge that might be indispensable to him.
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child.
You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice,
"You shall not oppress a sojourner. You know the heart of a sojourner, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
"When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.
You shall not be partial in judgment. You shall hear the small and the great alike. You shall not be intimidated by anyone, for the judgment is God's. And the case that is too hard for you, you shall bring to me, and I will hear it.'
For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.
You shall not pervert justice. You shall not show partiality, and you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.
