"All the men of your nation are to come to worship the Lord three times a year at the one place of worship: at Passover, Harvest Festival, and the Festival of Shelters. Each man is to bring a gift
as he is able, in proportion to the blessings that the Lord your God has given him.
"Appoint judges and other officials in every town that the Lord your God gives you. These men are to judge the people impartially.
They are not to be unjust or show partiality in their judgments; and they are not to accept bribes, for gifts blind the eyes even of wise and honest men, and cause them to give wrong decisions. 1
Always be fair and just, so that you will occupy the land that the Lord your God is giving you and so that you will continue to live there.
"When you make an altar for the Lord your God, do not put beside it a wooden symbol of the goddess Asherah. 2
