33 ‘And when a sojourner sojourneth with thee in your land, thou dost not oppress him; 34as a native among you is the sojourner to you who is sojourning with you, and thou hast had love to him as to thyself, for sojourners ye have been in the land of Egypt; I am Jehovah your God.

About Young’s Literal Translation
Robert Young is best known for his monumental work, Young’s Analytical Concordance To The Bible. Young’s Literal Translation is a very good work to add to your Bible collection for text comparisons.
