The Jewish law protected the poor who were obliged to give security for a loan or the fulfillment of a contract. If a man pawned his robe, the usual covering of the cool nights, it must be returned on the same day, Exodus 22:26-27. The creditor could not enter a house and take what he pleased; and the millstone being a necessary of life, could not be taken, Deuteronomy 24:6,10,11. Compare Job 22:6 24:3,7. Idolaters sometimes disregarded these prohibitions, Amos 2:6-8. See LOANS. Pledges are necessary from the vicious, who cannot be trusted, Proverbs 20:16.
