He that justifies the wicked and he that condemns the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
who justify the wicked for bribes and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
To respect the person of the wicked so that the righteous loses that which is rightfully his is not good.
They gather themselves together as an army against the life of the righteous and condemn the innocent blood.
He that saith unto the wicked, Thou art righteous; him shall the peoples curse, nations shall abhor him:
Keep thee far from a false matter; and slay thou not the innocent and righteous; for I will not justify the wicked.
Can I be pure with false balances and with a bag of deceitful weights?
I know it is so of a truth, but how shall a man be justified with God?
being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Jesus, the Christ, whom God purposed for reconciliation through faith in his blood for the manifestation of his righteousness, for the remission of sins that are past, by the patience of God, manifesting in this time his righteousness that he only be the just one and the justifier of him that is of the faith of Jesus.
