「Partiality in judgment is not good. Whoever says to the guilty, “You are righteous,” the people will curse him; the nations will abhor him. But they who rebuke will have delight, and upon them blessings of goodness will come.
Do not be a witness without cause against your neighbor nor deceive with your lips. Do not say, “Just as he has done to me, so shall I do to him; I will pay back the man according to his deed.”」
Proverbs 24:23-25, 28-29 LEB
