Proverbs 17:15

He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous,
Both of them alike are an abomination to Yahweh.

Nor to strike the noble for their uprightness.

Proverbs 18:5

To show partiality to the wicked is not good,
Nor to thrust aside the righteous in judgment.

To do justice is pleasure for the righteous,
But is ruin to the workers of iniquity.

Proverbs 24:11 - 24:12

Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are stumbling to the slaughter, Oh hold them back.
If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
Does not He who weighs the hearts understand?
And does not He who guards your soul know?
And will not He render to man according to his work?

Proverbs 24:23 - 24:25

These also are sayings of the wise.
To show partiality in judgment is not good.
He who says to the wicked, “You are righteous,”
Peoples will curse him, nations will be indignant with him;
But to those who reprove the wicked, it will be pleasant,
And a good blessing will come upon them.

Proverbs 28:5

Evil men do not understand justice,
But those who seek Yahweh understand all things.

Proverbs 29:26

Many seek the face of a ruler,
But justice for man comes from Yahweh.
