Exodus 23:8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

You must not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and corrupts the words[a] of the righteous.

  1. Exodus 23:8 Or and subverts the cause

Micah 7:2-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Godly people have vanished from the land;
there is no one upright among the people.
All of them wait in ambush to shed blood;
they hunt each other with a net.
Both hands are good at accomplishing evil:
the official and the judge demand a bribe;
when the powerful man communicates his evil desire,
they plot it together.
The best of them is like a brier;
the most upright is worse than a hedge of thorns.
The day of your watchmen,
the day of your punishment, is coming;
at this time their panic is here.
Do not rely on a friend;
don’t trust in a close companion.
Seal your mouth
from the woman who lies in your arms.
Surely a son considers his father a fool,
a daughter opposes her mother,
and a daughter-in-law is against her mother-in-law;
a man’s enemies are the men of his own household.
