Deuteronomy 10:17-22 says:
17Why? Because the Lord is your God. He is the God of gods and the Lord of lords. He is the great God. He is the amazing and powerful fighter. To the Lord every person is the same. The Lord does not accept money to change his mind. 18He helps children that have no parents. He helps widows. He loves even the strangers in our country. He gives them food and clothes. 19So you must also love those strangers. Why? Because you yourselves were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20“You must respect the Lord your God and worship only him. Never leave him. When you make promises, you must use only his name. 21The Lord is the one you should praise. He is your God. He has done great and amazing things for you. You have seen those things with your own eyes. 22When your ancestors went down into Egypt, there were only 70 people. Now the Lord your God has made you many, many people—as many as the stars in the sky. (Easy-to-Read Version)
King James Version: 17For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: 18He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. 19Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name. 21He is thy praise, and he is thy God, that hath done for thee these great and terrible things, which thine eyes have seen. 22Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude.
