Negative Commandment 245 (Digest)
Robbery

"Do not commit robbery"Leviticus 19:13.

It is forbidden to rob, i.e., to unlawfully appropriate another's possessions through use of brute force or coercion [as opposed to theft – a prohibition in its own right – that is accomplished stealthily].


Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
