The Vav in “Vaela Hamishpatim” teaches us that these halachos were also given from Hashem at Har Sinai. Every society operates by a basic set of rules. There are even columns written of what is considered a proper ethic and behavior. None comes close to the Torah. Imagine having to help a person you dislike to change his tire. Or to lend money with no interest. Or the restriction not to speak Loshon Hora in spite of the argument – “But it’s the truth”. ┬áThe Torah laws are more than common sense. They are Divine laws.
