15 “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.16 You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand up against the life of your neighbour: I am the Lord.
We continue looking at what it meant for the Jews to love their neighbour according to the law.
Do not be partial to the poor or show favour to the great but judge honestly (Lev. 19:15).
Do not commit financial fraud. The word slander in Hebrew is rakhil,and it may be related to the term rokheleth, meaning merchant. (Lev. 19:16).
Loving your neighbour means living justly. This is now about how you treat others. Loving your neighbour means acting with justly. Are you someone who is trustworthy? Do those next to you come to you because they can trust you?
