1 When any member of the community hath been offended by another or observeth another in wrongdoing, he is not to come against that erring one with a railing accusation, but is to approach him truthfully, humbly and humanely.
2 A qodesh person of Elohim must not bear hatred in his heart toward his brother.
3 If the offender will not hear his complaint, then he is to take with him two of the teachers to reason with him.
4 If the offender will not hear them, then he is to be called before the Kohĕn ha’Gadol and his brethren who are set as judges in Yisra’ĕl.
5 Thus will all disputations be settled in order, without anger or emotion, that peace and harmony and unity may be preserved in Yisra’ĕl.
6 Furthermore, no man is to bring a charge publicly against his brother except he prove it by witnesses, for in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every charge be established.
