THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Exodus (Author Moses)

23:2Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

23:3Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause.

23:6Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause.

23:7Keep thee far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.

23:8And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.

Deuteronomy (Author Moses)

1:16And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.

1:17Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

25:1If there be a controversy between men, and they come unto judgment, that the judges may judge them; then they shall justify the righteous, and condemn the wicked.
