Ki Tetse

  
BackForward
 24:16
 24:17
24:17 Do not pervert justice for the proselyte or orphan.
Do not take a widow's garment as security for a loan.

Lo tate mishpat ger yatom velo tachavol beged almanah.



Commentary:

proselyte
  (Ralbag).

or orphan
  See Exodus 23:6.

widow's
  Some say that this same law also applies to a divorcee (Sema, Choshen Mishpat 97:22; cf. Shakh 97:1).

garment
  Some say only a garment (Shiltey Gibborim, Rif, Bava Metzia 70a #2), while others say that it includes all articles (Chinukh 591; cf. Pith'chey Teshuvah, Chosen Mishpat 97:2).
