Proverbs 31:5 Parallel
CommentaryProverbs 31:5 Parallel Commentaries
"In a lawsuit, you must not deny justice to the poor.
"You and your descendants must never drink wine or any other alcoholic drink before going into the Tabernacle. If you do, you will die. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation.
You must never twist justice or show partiality. Never accept a bribe, for bribes blind the eyes of the wise and corrupt the decisions of the godly.
1 Kings 20:12
Ahab's reply reached Ben-hadad and the other kings as they were drinking in their tents. "Prepare to attack!" Ben-hadad commanded his officers. So they prepared to attack the city.
Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent--both are detestable to the LORD.
It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent.
