And if an Israelite saw his enemy’s donkey wandering around, out of its paddock … – Slide 4

… he should catch that donkey and take it back to its paddock. – Slide 5

And if an Israelite saw a donkey struggling to carry a very heavy load … – Slide 6

… he should help the owner of the donkey and share some of that load. – Slide 7
