Care for the Foreigner | Zwinglius Redivivus


‘You must not infringe the rights of the foreigner or the orphan; you must not take a widow’s clothes in pledge.  Remember that you were once a slave in Egypt and that Yahweh your God redeemed you from that. That is why I am giving you this order.  ‘If, when reaping the harvest in your field, you overlook a sheaf in that field, do not go back for it. The foreigner, the orphan and the widow shall have it, so that Yahweh your God may bless you in all your undertakings.  ‘When you beat your olive tree, you must not go over the branches twice. The foreigner, the orphan and the widow shall have the rest.  ‘When you harvest your vineyard, you must not pick it over a second time. The foreigner, the orphan and the widow shall have the rest.  ‘Remember that you were once a slave in Egypt. That is why I am giving you this order.’ (Deut. 24:17-22)
