Exodus 23:1-9 New International Version

23 1  "Do not spread false reports. Do not help a guilty person by being a malicious witness. 2  "Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, 3  and do not show favoritism to a poor person in a lawsuit. 4  "If you come across your enemy's ox or donkey wandering off, be sure to return it. 5  If you see the donkey of someone who hates you fallen down under its load, do not leave it there; be sure you help them with it. 6  "Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. 7  Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty. 8  "Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the innocent. 9  "Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.
