Why does the Torah insert these laws here?

Seforno: After dealing with Mitzvos that concern bringing the Shechinah down to Yisrael (and of causing its withdrawal 1 ) the Torah is teaching us that it is not only the actual perversion of justice that Hashem hates (and that causes the withdrawal of the Shechinah), but even the retention of vessels with which to cheat - and from which one should therefore distance himself. 2
