Exodus 23:1-9 MSG

1 "Don't pass on malicious gossip.
2 Don't go along with the crowd in doing evil and don't fudge your testimony in a case just to please the crowd.
3 And just because someone is poor, don't show favoritism in a dispute.
4 "If you find your enemy's ox or donkey loose, take it back to him
5 If you see the donkey of someone who hates you lying helpless under its load, don't walk off and leave it. Help it up.
6 "When there is a dispute concerning your poor, don't tamper with the justice due them.
7 "Stay clear of false accusations. Don't contribute to the death of innocent and good people. I don't let the wicked off the hook.
8 "Don't take bribes. Bribes blind perfectly good eyes and twist the speech of good people.
9 "Don't take advantage of a stranger. You know what it's like to be a stranger; you were strangers in Egypt.
