Proverbs 17:26; Proverbs 18:5; Proverbs 21:8

26  vTo impose a fine on a righteous man is not good,

nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.

It is not good to bbe partial to1 the wicked

or to cdeprive the righteous of justice.

The way of the guilty mis crooked,

but the conduct of the pure is upright.
