English term or phrase:object of commission
We cannot pretend that it is not our duty to relieve the oppressed, as far as our power extends; but, as the priest who passed by the wounded man kept at a distance, that he migh not behold that ***object of commission***, so we are too ready to allege that we knew not the peril in which our neighbor was involved, or did not know that he was an innocent man, who did not deserve such treatment.
Está refiriéndose a la parábola del buen samaritano.
