Leviticus   19: 1-2, 11-18

19:1 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying:
19:2 Speak to the entire assembly of the sons of Israel, and you shall say to them: Be holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy.
19:11 You shall not steal. You shall not lie. Neither shall anyone deceive his neighbor.
19:12 You shall not commit perjury in my name, nor shall you pollute the name of your God. I am the Lord.
19:13 You shall not slander your neighbor, nor shall you oppress him by violence. The wages of a hired hand, you shall not delay with you until tomorrow.
19:14 You shall not speak evil of the deaf, nor shall you place a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear the Lord your God, for I am the Lord.
19:15 You shall not do what is unjust, nor shall you judge unjustly. You shall not consider the reputation of the poor, nor shall you honor the countenance of the powerful. Judge your neighbor justly.
19:16 You shall not be a detractor, nor a whisperer, among the people. You shall not stand against the blood of your neighbor. I am the Lord.
19:17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but reprove him openly, lest you have sin over him.
19:18 Do not seek revenge, neither should you be mindful of the injury of your fellow citizens. You shall love your friend as yourself. I am the Lord.
