Exodus 23:9

Context

23:9 “You must not oppress 1  a foreigner, since you know the life 2  of a foreigner, for you were foreigners in the land of Egypt.

1 tn The verb means “to crush.” S. R. Driver notes that in this context this would probably mean with an unfair judgment in the courts (Exodus, 239).

2 tn Heb “soul, life” – “you know what it feels like.”
