Far be it from you to do such a thing--to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"
"Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt.
So I took the leading men of your tribes, wise and respected men, and appointed them to have authority over you--as commanders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of tens and as tribal officials.
Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly.
When people have a dispute, they are to take it to court and the judges will decide the case, acquitting the innocent and condemning the guilty.
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
