But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court?
Do they not blaspheme the good name by which you have been called?
If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,' you are doing well.
But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and
are convicted by the Law as violators.
For whoever keeps the whole Law, yet stumbles in one point,
has become guilty of all.
For He who said, 'DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY,' also said, 'DO NOT MURDER.' Now if you do not commit adultery, but do murder, you have become a violator of the Law.
So speak, and so act, as those who are to be judged by the
law of freedom.
For judgment will be
merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.
