"Do not defraud or rob your neighbor. "Do not make your hired workers wait until the next day to receive their pay.
"Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people. "Do not stand idly by when your neighbor's life is threatened. I am the LORD.
But the wicked will be blinded. They will have no escape. Their only hope is death."
