23 1 "You shall not utter a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man, to be a malicious witness. 23 2 You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; nor shall you bear witness in a suit, turning aside after a multitude, so as to pervert justice; 23 3 nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his suit.
23 4 "If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shall bring it back to him. 23 5 If you see the ass of one who hates you lying under its burden, you shall refrain from leaving him with it, you shall help him to lift it up.
23 6 "You shall not pervert the justice due to your poor in his suit. 23 7 Keep far from a false charge, and do not slay the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked. 23 8 And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the officials, and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.
23 9 "You shall not oppress a stranger; you know the heart of a stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
