Context
Justice and Mercy

1You shall not raise a false report: put not your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous witness. 2You shall not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shall you speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: 3Neither shall you countenance a poor man in his cause. 4If you meet your enemy's ox or his ass going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him again. 5If you see the ass of him that hates you lying under his burden, and would forbear to help him, you shall surely help with him. 6You shall not wrest the judgment of your poor in his cause. 7Keep you far from a false matter; and the innocent and righteous slay you not: for I will not justify the wicked. 8And you shall take no gift: for the gift blinds the wise, and perverts the words of the righteous. 9Also you shall not oppress a stranger: for you know the heart of a stranger, seeing you were strangers in the land of Egypt.
