JUSTICE FOR ALL

Exodus 23:1-9 NKJV

   You shall not circulate a false report. Do not put your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness.

   You shall not follow a crowd to do evil; nor shall you testify in a dispute so as to turn aside after many to pervert justice.

   You shall not show partiality to a poor man in his dispute.

    If you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. If you see the donkey of one who hates you lying under its burden, and you would refrain from helping it, you shall surely help him with it.

   You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute.

   Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked. And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the discerning and perverts the words of the righteous.

   Also you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the heart of a stranger, because you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
