Judges and Justice

18Judges and officers shall you make you in all your gates, which the LORD your God gives you, throughout your tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment. 19You shall not wrest judgment; you shall not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift does blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 20That which is altogether just shall you follow, that you may live, and inherit the land which the LORD your God gives you.

in all thy gates This expression may refer to the gate of the city, as the {forum} or place of public concourse among the Israelites, where a {court of judicature} was held, to try all causes and decide all affairs.
