Deuteronomy23:15Deuteronomy 24:4

15 You shall not deliver to his master the slave who has escaped from his master to you;

16 He shall dwell with you, even in your midst, in the place which he chooses among your towns, wherever he pleases; you shall not oppress him.

17 There shall not be a cult prostitute among the daughters of Israel, nor shall there be a cult prostitute among the sons of Israel.

18 You shall not bring the payment for a harlot or the price for a dog into the house of Jehovah your God for any vow, for both of them are an abomination to Jehovah your God.

19 You shall not make your brother pay interest, interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything on which one pays interest.

20 You may make a foreigner pay interest; but you shall not make your brother pay interest, in order that Jehovah your God may bless you in all your undertakings upon the land which you are entering to possess.

21 When you vow a vow to Jehovah to Jehovah your God, you shall not delay in paying it; for Jehovah your God would certainly require it of you, and it will become sin in you.

22 But if you refrain from vowing, it will not become sin in you.

23 What proceeds out of your lips you shall keep and do, as you have vowed to Jehovah your God voluntarily, which you have promised with your mouth.

24 When you enter your neighbor’s vineyard, you may eat grapes as your soul desires, until you are satisfied; but you shall not put any into a vessel of yours.

25 When you go into your neighbor’s standing grain, you may pluck some ears with your hand; but you shall not wield a sickle upon your neighbor’s standing grain.

DEUTERONOMY 24

1 When a man takes a woman and marries her, if she does not find favor in his sight, because he has found some indecency in her; and he writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her away from his house;

2 And she goes forth from his house and goes to be another man’s;

3 And the latter husband despises her and writes her a bill of divorce and puts it in her hand and sends her away from his house; or if the latter husband, who has taken her as his wife, dies;

4 Then the former husband, who sent her away, may not return to take her again to be his wife after she has been defiled. For that is an abomination before Jehovah, and you shall not cause the land to sin, which Jehovah your God is giving you as an inheritance.
