Exod. 22-25–26; Deut. 24-12–15, 17; Amos 2-8


Exod. 22-25–26

25 If thou at all take thy neighbour’s garment to pledge, thou shalt restore it unto him by that the sun goeth down;
26 for that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin; wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto Me, that I will hear; for I am gracious. {S}

Deut. 24-12–15

12 And if he be a poor man, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge
13 thou shalt surely restore to him the pledge when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his garment, and bless thee; and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God. {S}
14 Thou shalt not oppress a hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates.
15 In the same day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD and it be sin in thee. {S}

Amos 2-8

8 And they lay themselves down beside every altar upon clothes taken in pledge, and in the house of their God they drink the wine of them that have been fined.
