255 - WRONGING A FUGITIVE BONDMAN


Deuteronomy 23:16 -- “He may dwell with you in your midst, in the place which he chooses within one of your gates, where it seems best to him; you shall not oppress him.”

“Mercy is also the object of the law, You shall not give back to his master…etc; but it teaches besides a very useful lesson, namely, that we must always practice this virtue, help and protect those who seek our help, and not deliver them unto those from whom they flee; and it is not sufficient to give assistance to those who are in need of our help; we must look after their interest, be kind to them, and not hurt their feelings by words. Thus the law says: He may dwell with you in your midst, in the place which he chooses within one of your gates, where it seems best to him; you shall not oppress him (Deuteronomy 23:16). This we owe to the lowest among men, to the slave; how much more must we do our duty to the freeborn, when they seek our assistance?”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 39
