John 8:15; Isaiah 11:3; 2 Corinthians 10:7; Deuteronomy 1:16–17
3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
nHe shall not judge by owhat his eyes see,
or decide disputes by owhat his ears hear,
7 uLook at what is before your eyes. vIf anyone is confident that he is Christ’s, let him remind himself that just as whe is Christ’s, xso also are we.
16 And I charged your judges at that time, ‘Hear the cases between your brothers, and ujudge righteously between a man and his brother or the alien who is with him. 17 vYou shall not be partial in judgment. You shall hear the small and the great alike. You shall not be intimidated by anyone, for wthe judgment is God’s. And the case that is too hard for you, you shall xbring to me, and I will hear it.’
