“Thou shalt not wrest the iudgement of thy poore in his cause.”
King James Version (KJV)
3. ¶ Neither shalt thou countenance a poore man in his cause. 4. ¶ If thou meete thine enemies oxe or his asse going astray, thou shalt surely bring it backe to him againe. 5. If thou see the asse of him that hateth thee, lying vnder his burden, and wouldest forbeare to helpe him, thou shalt surely helpe with him. 6. Thou shalt not wrest the iudgement of thy poore in his cause. 7. Keepe thee farre from a false matter: and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not iustifie the wicked. 8. ¶ And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and peruerteth the words of the righteous. 9. ¶ Also thou shalt not oppresse a stranger: for yee know the heart of a stranger, seeing yee were strangers in the land of Egypt.
