2 Chronicles 19:7 Meaning and Commentary

2 Chronicles 19:7

Wherefore now let the fear of the Lord be upon you
And act as having that before your eyes, and on your hearts:

take heed and do it;
do the commands enjoined them by him, and do judgment according to the law of God:

for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God;
none in his nature, nor in his law; none commanded nor approved of by him, and therefore none should be done by his representatives in judgment:

nor respect of persons;
whether high or low, rich or poor:

nor taking of gifts;
he accepts not the faces of men, nor receives bribes, nor should his judges; this is forbidden by him, ( Deuteronomy 16:19 ) .
