Proverbs 18:5

[ <1 minutes to read ]

It is not good to accept the person of the wicked, to overthrow the righteous in judgment.
– Proverbs 18:5

[T]his proverb refers to the perverting of justice by showing partiality. Such miscarrying of justice is forbidden by the law and by wisdom (Deuteronomy 1:16-17; Proverbs 17:26; 28:21). Accepting bribes (Deuteronomy 16:19), showing favoritism to a class (Leviticus 19:15), and oppressing the vulnerable (Deuteronomy 24:14; Leviticus 19:33-34) can pervert Justice.
