Deuteronomy 16:19; 1 Samuel 8:3; 2 Chronicles 19:7; Psalm 26:10; Proverbs 17:23; Isaiah 1:23; Isaiah 5:23; Isaiah 33:15

19 fYou shall not pervert justice. gYou shall not show partiality, hand you shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and subverts the cause of the righteous.


Yet his sons did not walk in his ways sbut turned aside after gain. tThey took bribes and perverted justice.


Now then, let the fear of the Lord be upon you. Be careful what you do, for zthere is no injustice with the Lord our God, aor partiality or taking bribes.


10  in whose hands are evil devices,

and whose right hands are full of ebribes.


23  The wicked accepts qa bribe in secret1

to rpervert the ways of justice.


23  Your princes are rebels

and companions of thieves.

Everyone uloves a bribe

and runs after gifts.

vThey do not bring justice to the fatherless,

and the widow's cause does not come to them.


23  who aacquit the guilty for a bribe,

and deprive the innocent of his right!


15  aHe who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,

who despises the gain of oppressions,

who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe,

who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed

band shuts his eyes from looking on evil,
