He shall dwell in thee, even among you,.... This seems to confirm the sense of it, being a stranger, a: proselyte servant that is here spoken of, since the law provides for his dwelling among the Israelites:

thou shalt not oppress him; by words, as the Targum of Jonathan adds,
"calling him a fugitive servant, or by any opprobrious name.''
