 19:11
19:10 [Furthermore,] do not pick the incompletely formed grape clusters in your vineyards. [Also] do not pick up individual [fallen grapes] in your vineyards. [All the above] must be left for the poor and the stranger. I am God your Lord.
Vecharmecha lo te'olel uferet karmecha lo telaket le'ani velager ta'azov otam ani Adonay Eloheychem.

Do not deny [a rightful claim].

Do not lie to one another.
Lo tignovu velo-techachashu velo-teshakru ish ba'amito.
