If however it is the influence of my calumniators which imposes silence upon you, you must listen to the other law which says "Thou shalt not honour the person of the mighty"  and "Judge righteous judgment"  and "Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil"  and "He that shutteth his eyes from seeing evil and stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood."  You may find innumerable similar passages in holy Scripture, which I have thought it needless to collect when writing to a man brought up in the divine oracles, and watering Christian people with his teaching. But this I will say, that we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ, and shall give account of our words and deeds. I, who for every other reason dread this tribunal, now that I am encompassed with calumny, find my chief consolation in the thought of it.
 Cf. Letter LXXXV. There seems nothing to indicate whether this Basil is Basil of Seleucia or Basil of Trajanopolis, both of whom were present at the Latrocinium and took part against Theodoret. Garnerius refers it to the former, a time-server of the court.  Matthew 18:10 and 6  Leviticus 19:15  John 7:24  Exodus 23:2  Isaiah 33:15. Observe the inversion.
