Exodus 23:1-9 (New Living Translation)

View In My Bible
1 "Do not pass along false reports. Do not cooperate with evil people by telling lies on the witness stand. 2 "Do not join a crowd that intends to do evil. When you are on the witness stand, do not be swayed in your testimony by the opinion of the majority. 3 And do not slant your testimony in favor of a person just because that person is poor. 4 "If you come upon your enemy's ox or donkey that has strayed away, take it back to its owner 5 If you see the donkey of someone who hates you struggling beneath a heavy load, do not walk by. Instead, stop and offer to help. 6 "Do not twist justice against people simply because they are poor. 7 "Keep far away from falsely charging anyone with evil. Never put an innocent or honest person to death. I will not allow anyone guilty of this to go free. 8 "Take no bribes, for a bribe makes you ignore something that you clearly see. A bribe always hurts the cause of the person who is in the right. 9 "Do not oppress the foreigners living among you. You know what it is like to be a foreigner. Remember your own experience in the land of Egypt.
