For example, don't be ashamed if you obey the Law of God Most High; or if a godless person is on trial, and you vote “innocent” because you believe it's true; 3
if you pay your fair share of the expenses for business or travel; if you divide up an inheritance among all those who deserve a share; 4
if you have accurate scales for weighing what you buy and sell; if you buy much or little, 5
or if you make a profit on what you sell; if you punish your children when they need it; if your slaves do wrong, and you whip them until they bleed.
