Do not favor a poor man in his lawsuit. Bible see other translations

“Do not favor a poor man in his lawsuit.” God is righteous, and He does not tolerate evil and injustice. To some people it seems the right thing to do to favor a poor person in a lawsuit just because he or she is poor and the other party “can afford it.” But that is injustice, and God is against it. Courts have to be right and righteous in their dealings.
