Negative Commandment #67

Second Section – the Negative Commandments

67. It is a negative commandment for a judge "do not pervert justice against a sinner because of his wickedness"

As it states in Shemos (Exodus) 23:6, "you shall not pervert justice of a poor person in his argument." The meaning of the words "poor person" in this context is 'he who is poor in his performance of the commandments.'

This applies in all places and at all times, for men and for women.
