Leviticus 19:16
לֹא־תֵלֵךְ רָכִיל בְּעַמֶּיךָ לֹא תַעֲמֹד עַל־דַּם רֵעֶךָ אֲנִי ה':
You shall not be a tale-bearer among your people; you shall not stand idly by the blood of your neighbor; I am Adonai. [translation by AJWS]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. What does it mean to "stand idly by"? What if you are not in a position to directly save the life?

2. Who is the "neighbor" the Torah is talking about?

3. What if it seems like there is nothing you can do?

Time Period: Biblical (early ancestors to 165 BCE)
