Respect of Persons

The judges of the Hebrews were directed to give sentence strictly according to truth and justice, without regard to the comparative wealth, influence or other advantage of one party over the other, Leviticus 19:15 Deuteronomy 16:17 Proverbs 24:23 . Thus God judges, not according to outward appearance or station, but according to the heart, Acts 10:34 Romans 2:6-11 . Thus ought men to estimate and treat their fellow men; and to court the favor of the rich and influential is sharply censured in Scripture, Proverbs 28:21 James 2:1-9 Jude 1:16 .
