Deuteronomy 23:19-20

Context
Respect for Others’ Property

23:19 You must not charge interest on a loan to your fellow Israelite, 1  whether on money, food, or anything else that has been loaned with interest. 23:20 You may lend with interest to a foreigner, but not to your fellow Israelite; if you keep this command the Lord your God will bless you in all you undertake in the land you are about to enter to possess.

Deuteronomy 24:6

Context

24:6 One must not take either lower or upper millstones as security on a loan, for that is like taking a life itself as security. 2 

1 tn Heb “to your brother” (likewise in the following verse). Since this is not limited to actual siblings, “fellow Israelite” is used in the translation (cf. NAB, NASB “countrymen”).

2 sn Taking millstones as security on a loan would amount to taking the owner’s own life in pledge, since the millstones were the owner’s means of earning a living and supporting his family.
