“Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.” - Numbers 15:29.
Comment:

This law was pronounced by God to give the understanding that there is no discrimination with God. He is the God not only of the Jews but also of the gentiles. He is fair and just in His ways.  Since the law had been made known to everybody, anyone who violates them does so deliberately or presumptuously and has no excuse. - Numbers 15:30.

There was an occasion when the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, quarreled with a man of Israel in the camp and the son of the Egyptian blasphemed the name of the LORD. They put him in confinement pending when the mind of God on the matter would be known. The sentence from God through Moses was that the man be killed. “…Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin. And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death…the stranger, as he that is born in the land…” - Leviticus 24:10-16.

Similarly, those who are judges are required to be fair to all parties concerned while masters should know that God will judge them on how they treat their servants. (2 Chronicles 19:6,7; Ephesians 6:9) St. Peter stated, “…Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.” - Acts 10:34, 35.
