Isaiah 5:23



23 Which
[tsadaq] the wicked [rasha`] for [`eqeb] reward, [shachad] and take
[cuwr] the righteousness [tsadaqah] of the righteous [tsaddiyq]
from him! KJV-Interlinear


23 Who
justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in
the right!  NASB

Begin study:


Bias in justice has long been a problem in legal matters. Corrupt judges who take bribes, or who are easily influenced or easily pressured, or who favor their own gain over the rights of those in the right, have long been a problem for society.

But this evil characteristic is not limited to judges. It can apply to legislators, government officials, business people, people in any organization, and certainly this principle of corruption can apply to the common person on the street.

Gossip is an example of this application of evil bias.

But then all evil principles are driven by the absence of truth.

Without truth, which is the sum total and result of understanding Bible doctrine, there are no boundaries with which to contain ones morals or standards.

All correct standards of life originate from truth. And if you do not have any boundaries, then you cannot know when you are out of bounds. And certainly you do not care.

When the sin nature drives the life, then the lusts become insatiable and want more and more, and sooner or later, the innocent, and certainly those in the right, will lose out to those who possess the power and authority to do as they please.

The only constraint on evil is truth. And the only way to manage evil is to have a majority guided by truth, such that it can manage, control and contain evil. That is usually the job of the legal system, or the military as in the case of conflicts between countries or regions and so forth.

But then again, this also applies to individual people, for it is people who make up the structures of bureaucracies or organizations or such things that usually hide behind the veil of their organization.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
