242 - TAKING IN PLEDGE FOOD UTENSILS


Deuteronomy 24:6 --No man shall take the lower or the upper millstone in pledge, for he takes one's living in pledge.”

The Mishnah says: “This means not only the nether and the upper millstone, but anything employed in the preparation of food for human consumption, for it written: for he takes one's living in pledge.”*

* B.M. 115a (Sonc. ed. pp. 655f)

“The precepts contained in the laws concerning the relation between lender and borrower will be found, on being carefully examined, to be nothing but commands to be lenient, merciful and kind to the needy, not to deprive them of anything indispensable in the preparation of food.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 39
