"You shall not pervert the justice due to your needy brother in his dispute.
'You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor nor defer to the great, but you are to judge your neighbor fairly.

"You shall not distort justice; you shall not be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
How long will you judge unjustly And show partiality to the wicked? Selah.
He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD.
