• Exodus 23:8
    And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the discerning and perverts the words of the righteous.
  • Proverbs 18:17
    The first one to plead his cause seems right,
    Until his neighbor comes and examines him.

  • Isaiah 59:8-13
    The way of peace they have not known,
    And there is no justice in their ways;
    They have made themselves crooked paths;
    Whoever takes that way shall not know peace. Therefore justice is far from us,
    Nor does righteousness overtake us;
    We look for light, but there is darkness!
    For brightness, but we walk in blackness!
    We grope for the wall like the blind,
    And we grope as if we had no eyes;
    We stumble at noonday as at twilight;
    We are as dead men in desolate places.
    We all growl like bears,
    And moan sadly like doves;
    We look for justice, but there is none;
    For salvation, but it is far from us.
    For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
    And our sins testify against us;
    For our transgressions are with us,
    And as for our iniquities, we know them:
    In transgressing and lying against the LORD,
    And departing from our God,
    Speaking oppression and revolt,
    Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

  • Exodus 23:1-3
    “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.
  • Exodus 23:6
    'You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute.
  • Deuteronomy 16:19-20
    You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. You shall follow what is altogether just, that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
  • Deuteronomy 19:15-19
    “One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established. If a false witness rises against any man to testify against him of wrongdoing, then both men in the controversy shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who serve in those days. And the judges shall make careful inquiry, and indeed, if the witness is a false witness, who has testified falsely against his brother, then you shall do to him as he thought to have done to his brother; so you shall put away the evil from among you.
  • Ecclesiastes 3:16
    Moreover I saw under the sun:
    In the place of judgment,
    Wickedness was there;
    And in the place of righteousness,
    Iniquity was there.
  • Ecclesiastes 4:1
    Then I returned and considered all the oppression that is done under the sun:
    And look! The tears of the oppressed,
    But they have no comforter—
    On the side of their oppressors there is power,
    But they have no comforter.

  • Ecclesiastes 5:8-9
    If you see the oppression of the poor, and the violent perversion of justice and righteousness in a province, do not marvel at the matter; for high official watches over high official, and higher officials are over them. Moreover the profit of the land is for all; even the king is served from the field.

  • Isaiah 53:7
    He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
    Yet He opened not His mouth;
    He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
    And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
    So He opened not His mouth.

  • Isaiah 59:15
    So truth fails,
    And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him
    That there was no justice.
