man shall know of himself as he lives.
2. For as he lives he prays, in this age, and I say
unto you that he who tries to take from another man his wealth without due
compensation, steals from him.
3. For as it has been said by the great Master that the
laborer is worth his hire, so likewise is he for whom he labors worth his
hire. But let him not take more than he pays for in goods.
4. For he who would gain money without effort, by using
man's law, cheateth his brother.
5. He that desireth another woman fervently, who
belongs to another, is attempting to steal her away from her husband.
6. But he who just admires the beauty of a creation of
