Leviticus 19:33-37New American Standard Bible (NASB)
33 ‘When a stranger resides with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong.34 The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.
35 ‘You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measurement of weight, or capacity.36 You shall have just balances, just weights, a just [a]ephah, and a just [b]hin; I am the Lord your God, who brought you out from the land of Egypt.37 You shall thus observe all My statutes and all My ordinances and do them; I am the Lord.’”
Deuteronomy 24:17-22New American Standard Bible (NASB)
17 “You shall not pervert the justice [a]due an alien or[b]an orphan, nor take a widow’s garment in pledge.18 But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and that the Lord your God redeemed you from there; therefore I am commanding you to do this thing.
19 “When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the [c]orphan, and for the widow, in order that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.20 When you beat your olive tree, you shall not go over the boughs [d]again; it shall be for the alien, for the [e]orphan, and for the widow.
21 “When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not [f]go over it again; it shall be for the alien, for the [g]orphan, and for the widow.22 You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore I am commanding you to do this thing.
