Hebrew Bible

Deuteronomy 23:17

15 You must not return an escaped slave to his master when he has run away to you. 16 Indeed, he may live among you in any place he chooses, in whichever of your villages he prefers; you must not oppress him. 17 There must never be a sacred prostitute among the young women of Israel nor a sacred male prostitute among the young men of Israel. 18 You must never bring the pay of a female prostitute or the wage of a male prostitute into the temple of the Lord your God in fulfillment of any vow, for both of these are abhorrent to the Lord your God. 19 You must not charge interest on a loan to your fellow Israelite, whether on money, food, or anything else that has been loaned with interest. 20 You may lend with interest to a foreigner, but not to your fellow Israelite; if you keep this command the Lord your God will bless you in all you undertake in the land you are about to enter to possess.

LXX Deuteronomy 23:17


15 You shall not hand over to an owner a servant who has been added to you from his owner. 16 He shall reside with you; among you he shall live, in every place wherever he may please; you shall not oppress him. 17 There shall not be a prostitute among the daughters of Israel; there shall not be one that practices prostitution among the sons of Israel. There shall not be an initiate among the daughters of Israel, and there shall not be anyone initiated among the sons of Israel. 18 You shall not bring the fee of a prostitute or the exchange for a dog into the house of the Lord your God for any vow, for it is an abomination to the Lord your God—in fact both. 19 You shall not charge interest to your brother, interest on money and interest on provisions and interest on any thing that may be lent. 20 To a stranger you shall charge interest but to your brother you shall not charge interest, so that the Lord your God may bless you in all your works in the land into which you are entering there to inherit it.
