“¶ And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and peruerteth the words of the righteous.”
King James Version (KJV)
5. If thou see the asse of him that hateth thee, lying vnder his burden, and wouldest forbeare to helpe him, thou shalt surely helpe with him. 6. Thou shalt not wrest the iudgement of thy poore in his cause. 7. Keepe thee farre from a false matter: and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not iustifie the wicked. 8. ¶ And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and peruerteth the words of the righteous. 9. ¶ Also thou shalt not oppresse a stranger: for yee know the heart of a stranger, seeing yee were strangers in the land of Egypt. 10. And sixe yeres thou shalt sow thy land, and shalt gather in the fruites thereof: 11. But the seuenth yeere thou shalt let it rest, and lie still, that the poore of thy people may eate, and what they leaue, the beasts of the field shall eate. In like maner thou shalt deale with thy vineyard, and with thy oliue yard.
