Deuteronomy 10:19
Love you therefore the stranger: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
A Call to Obedience

12And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command you this day for your good? 14Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD's your God, the earth also, with all that therein is. 15Only the LORD had a delight in your fathers to love them, and he chose their seed after them, even you above all people, as it is this day. 16Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiff necked. 17For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regards not persons, nor takes reward: 18He does execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loves the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. 19Love you therefore the stranger: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20You shall fear the LORD your God; him shall you serve, and to him shall you hold, and swear by his name. 21He is your praise, and he is your God, that has done for you these great and terrible things, which your eyes have seen. 22Your fathers went down into Egypt with three score and ten persons; and now the LORD your God has made you as the stars of heaven for multitude.
