245 - COMMITTING ROBBERY


Leviticus 19:13 -- “You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning.”

The sages also speak of the prohibition against avak gezelah (lit. ‘dust of robbery’), as where one “partakes of a meal that is insufficient for its owner, and the guest imagines that he has not sinned, since he says to himself, ‘Did I eat aught without the owner’s consent?’”*

* Mishneh Torah, Mada, Hilchoth Teshubah IV, 5
