Page 15 - For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn. Is it for the oxen that God careth, or saith he it altogether for our sake? Yea, for our sake it was written: because he that ploweth ought to plow in hope, and he that thresheth, to thresh in hope of partaking.
Page 15 - Thou shalt not see thy brother's ass or his ox fall down by the way, and hide thyself from them : thou (halt surely help him to lift them up again.
