Commentary for Leviticus 19:14

Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 19:14

19:14 Before the blind - To make them fall. Under these two particulars are manifestly forbidden all injuries done to such as are unable to right or defend themselves; of whom God here takes the more care, because they are not able to secure themselves. Fear thy God - Who both can and will avenge them.
