BC Day 132

What is the seventh commandment of God? The seventh commandment of God is: Thou shalt not steal.

Thou shalt not steal. (Exodus 20:15)

What are we commanded by the seventh commandment? By the seventh commandment we are commanded to respect what belongs to others, to live up to our business agreements, and to pay our just debts.

Better is a little with justice, than great revenue with iniquity. (Proverbs 16:8)

What does the seventh commandment forbid? Besides stealing, the seventh commandment forbids cheating, unjust keeping of what belongs to others, unjust damage to the property of others, and the accepting of bribes by public officials.

Do not any unjust thing in judgment, in rule, in weight, or in measure. Let the balance be just and the weights equal, the bushel just, and the sextary equal. (Leviticus 19:35-36)

More on that here -> CCC 2401-2414
