Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God’s . . . (Deut. 1:17).
The question of the authority of the Old Testament in the state is tied inexorably to the issue of the authority of the Old Testament in general.

In this article, we take a look at one of the biblical laws that was given to make provision for the needs of the poor. The law is given in three separate texts (Lev. 19:9-10; 23:22; Deut. 24:19-21), and it instructs the Israelite farmer to leave some of the produce of his fields so that this food maybe gathered in by the poor. It was apparently one the chief means for the provision of the poor in Israel.
