Exodus 23:4-6

If

you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. If you see the donkey of him who hates you fallen down under his burden, don’t leave him, you shall surely help him with it. You shall not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits.
