Exodus Ch 21 tells of a range of social laws set up, designed to protect society. Some of them may be hard to understand or even accept, although it must be noted the times they lived in. The laws were far more just and fair than the laws of their neighbours.
They can be summed up towards loving God with our heart, strength, and mind, and loving our neighbour as we love ourselves, as summed up by Jesus Christ in the New Testament, and one cannot do better than that
