Hebrew law was recorded in the Torah, the first five books of the Old Testament. Because Hebrew law was closely linked to the Jewish concept of God, it differed from the legal codes of other, older civilizations of the Near East. The following selection is from Leviticus, which contains laws that govern actions dealing with neighbors and the community.
9 “When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field to its very border, neither shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest.10 And you shall not strip your vineyard bare, neither shall you gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and for the foreigner: I am the Lord your God.”

11 “You shall not steal, nor deal falsely, nor lie to one another. 12 And you shall not swear by my name falsely, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord.”

13 “ You shall not oppress your neighbor or rob him. The wages of a hired servant shall not remain with you all night until the morning. 14 You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.”

15 “ You shall do no injustice in judgment; 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 up and down as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not stand forth against the life of your neighbor: I am the Lord.”

17 “ You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason with your neighbor, lest you bear sin because of him. 18 You shall not take vengeance or bear any grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.”

33 “ When a stranger travels with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. 34 The stranger who travels with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself. I am the Lord.”
