Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent-- the LORD detests them both.
King James Bible
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
American Standard Version
He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to Jehovah.

Whoso is justifying the wicked, And condemning the righteous, Even both of these are an abomination to Jehovah.
