Bible: Deut 16:18-20

Provision for Justice

16:18 You must appoint judges and civil servants 1  for each tribe in all your villages 2  that the Lord your God is giving you, and they must judge the people fairly. 3  16:19 You must not pervert justice or show favor. Do not take a bribe, for bribes blind the eyes of the wise and distort 4  the words of the righteous. 5  16:20 You must pursue justice alone 6  so that you may live and inherit the land the Lord your God is giving you.
