Help your neighbor (Deut 22:1-22:4)

“You shall not watch your neighbor’s ox or sheep straying away and ignore them. You shall take them back to their owner. If the owner does not reside near you or you do not know who the owner is, you shall bring it to your house. It shall remain with you until the owner claims it. Then you shall return it. You shall do the same with a neighbor’s donkey. You shall do the same with a neighbor’s garment. You shall do the same with anything else that your neighbor loses and you find. You may not withhold your help. You shall not see your neighbor’s donkey or ox fallen on the road and ignore it. You shall help to lift it up.”

You have to help your neighbor with everything that goes wrong. If an ox or a donkey is lost, bring it home until the owner comes to claim it. Anything your find, try to find the owner. Help your neighbor. You cannot ignore the problems of others
