You shall not see your brother’s donkey or his ox falling on the way and ignore them. You shall raise him up, raise him up, with him. Help is offered to those who want to help themselves, explain the rabbis. Therefore the words “with him” teach that only while the donkey’s owner is trying to lift his donkey is there a requirement to help him. At the same time “raise him up” is repeated to teach us that if the donkey’s owner is physically unable to help then we must do the job alone. The Radomsker Rebbe explained this verse differently. Whenever we help someone, we are actually helping ourselves. The phrase raise him up is repeated to teach that when it comes to offering assistance, both the one giving the help and the one receiving the help, are raised up.
