Ki Tetse

24:9 Remember what God did to Miriam on your way out of Egypt.
Zachor et asher-asah Adonay Eloheycha le-Miryam baderech betsetchem miMitsrayim.
24:10 When you make any kind of loan to your neighbor, do not go into his house to take something as security.
Ki-tasheh vere'acha masa'at me'umah lo-tavo el-beyto la'avot avoto.
24:11 You must stand outside, and the man who has the debt to you shall bring the security outside to you.
Bachuts ta'amod veha'ish asher atah nosheh vo yotsi eleycha et-ha'avot hachutsah.
24:12 If the man is poor, you may not go to sleep holding his security.
Ve'im-ish ani hu lo tishkav ba'avoto.


to Miriam
  Numbers 12:10. Despite her high status (Ralbag). This is a specific commandment to refrain from such slander as that committed by Miriam (Numbers 12:1; Sifri; Ramban). It also tells us not to suspect religious leaders (Midrash HaGadol).
