Fear, Not Oppress

Leviticus 25:17

Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I [am] the LORD your God.
Fearing the Lord is opposed to oppressing 1 another and ruling with rigor, over the brethren who are your servants. We must fear the Lord instead of doing these things.

Leviticus 25:43

Thou shalt not rule over him with rigour; but shalt fear thy God.
It reminds me of the verses that teach that if you say you Love God, then you should also Love your brother.
