278 - A JUDGE PREVENTING JUDGMENT AGAINST A PERSON OF EVIL REPUTE


Exodus 23:6 --You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute.”

By this prohibition, a judge is forbidden to pervert judgment against a litigant whom he knows to be a wicked sinner.

The paramount duty of the judge is thus to render justice impartially to all who come before him, rich and poor, sinner and saint.*

* See also Note to Pos. Comm. 176, Vol. I, pp. 189f, on the qualifications of the judge
