You Shall Not Molest Or Oppress An Alien…

Thus says the Lord: “You shall not molest or oppress an alien, for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt.

Exodus 22:20

I was blessed to spend 53 days in the Holy Land recently. It was my 50-day Pentecost and allowed me to witness the injustices and crimes against the Palestinians. God cannot be happy and Exodus 20:20-26 gives us God’s direction on how to treat an alien. 

Thus says the Lord: “You shall not molest or oppress an alien, for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt. You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me, I will surely heart their cry. My wrath will flare up, and I will kill you with the sword; then your own wives will be widows, and your children orphans.  

If you lend your money to one of your poor neighbors among my people, you shall not act like an extortioner toward him by demanding interest from him. If you take your neighbor’s cloak as a pledge, you shall return it to him before sunset; for this cloak as a pledge, you shall return it to him before sunset; for this cloak of his is the only covering he has for his body. What else has he to sleep in? If he cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate. Let us all be kind, compassionate, and a “good Samaritan.

For you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt.
