Deuteronomy 22:2-4 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

And if your countryman[a] is not near you or you do not know who he is,[b] then you shall bring it to your household,[c] and it shall be[d] with you until your countryman seeks after it,[e] and you shall return it to him. And thus also you shall do regarding[f] his donkey, and thus you shall do concerning[g] his garment, and so you shall do with respect to[h] all of the lost property of your countryman[i] that is lost from him and you find it; you are not allowed to withhold help.

“You shall not see the donkey of your neighbor or his ox fallen on the road and you ignore them; certainly you must help them get up along with him.
