Deuteronomy 24:6-13New American Standard Bible (NASB)
6 “No one shall take a handmill or an upper millstone in pledge, for he would be taking a life in pledge.
7 “If a man is [a]caught kidnapping any of his [b]countrymen of the sons of Israel, and he deals with him violently or sells him, then that thief shall die; so you shall purge the evil from among you.
8 “Be careful against [c]an infection of leprosy, that you diligently observe and do according to all that the Levitical priests teach you; as I have commanded them, so you shall be careful to do.9 Remember what the Lord your God did to Miriam on the way as you came out of Egypt.
10 “When you make your neighbor a loan of any sort, you shall not enter his house to take his pledge.11 You shall remain outside, and the man to whom you make the loan shall bring the pledge out to you.12 If he is a poor man, you shall not sleep with his pledge.13 When the sun goes down you shall surely return the pledge to him, that he may sleep in his cloak and bless you; and it will be righteousness for you before the Lord your God.
