Contemporary English Version
15 (A) Be fair, no matter who is on trial—don't favor either the poor or the rich.
16 Don't be a gossip, but never hesitate to speak up in court, especially if your testimony can save someone's life.[a]
17 (B) Don't hold grudges. On the other hand, it's wrong not to correct someone who needs correcting. 18 (C) Don't be angry or try to take revenge. I am the Lord, and I command you to love others as much as you love yourself.Read full chapter
