Leviticus 19:9-18: Love Your Neighbor

O brother, love your neighbor!
Leave margin for the poor to eat,
With gleanings left after you reap,
To give your work to those in need.

O brother, love your neighbor!
Protect your neighbor’s property,
Don’t steal from him deceptively,
Or swear to him in blasphemy.

O brother, love your neighbor!
Don’t hold your power over him,
With holding wages is still sin,
Don’t laugh at weakness, but defend.

O brother, love your neighbor!
By seeking justice ever fair,
And never by their wealth compare,
But justice equal bring to bear!
