269 - IGNORING LOST PROPERTY


Deuteronomy 22:1-4 -- 1You shall not see your brother's ox or his sheep going astray, and hide yourself from them; you shall certainly bring them back to your brother. 2 And if your brother is not near you, or if you do not know him, then you shall bring it to your own house, and it shall remain with you until your brother seeks it; then you shall restore it to him. 3 You shall do the same with his donkey, and so shall you do with his garment; with any lost thing of your brother's, which he has lost and you have found, you shall do likewise; you must not hide yourself. 4 You shall not see your brother's donkey or his ox fall down along the road, and hide yourself from them; you shall surely help him lift them up again.”
Exodus 23:4 -- “If you meet your enemy's ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again.”

This commandment includes the prohibition against passing by a lost child, or a person who has lost his way.*

* Sanh. 73a
