Bible Quotes
 
Do not spread false reports. Do not help a wicked man by being a malicious witness. Do not follow the crowd in doing wrong. When you give testimony in a lawsuit, do not pervert justice by siding with the crowd, and do not show favoritism to a poor man in his lawsuit.
(Exodus 23:1,2)

Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty. "Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the righteous.
(Exodus 23:6-8)

" 'Do not defraud your neighbor or rob him. " 'Do not hold back the wages of a hired man overnight. " 'Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but fear your God. I am the LORD. " 'Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
(Leviticus 19:13-15)

Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the LORD your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly. Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.
(Deuteronomy 16:18-20)

When men have a dispute, they are to take it to court and the judges will decide the case, acquitting the innocent and condemning the guilty. If the guilty man deserves to be beaten, the judge shall make him lie down and have him flogged in his presence with the number of lashes his crime deserves, but he must not give him more than forty lashes. If he is flogged more than that, your brother will be degraded in your eyes. Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.
(Deuteronomy 25:1-4)

Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
(Psalm 98:9)

The king's strength also loveth judgment; thou dost establish equity, thou executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.
(Psalm 99:4)

A just weight and balance are the LORD's: all the weights of the bag are his work.
(Proverbs 16:11)

The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
(Proverbs 29:14)

And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
(Isaiah 11:5)

The Bible and Fairness/ Justice

Life is not always fair. "Again I looked throughout the earth and saw that the swiftest person does not always win the race, nor the strongest man the battle, and that wise men are often poor, and skillful men are not necessarily famous." Ecclesiastes 9:11, TLB.

God expects fairness in business transactions. "The Lord demands fairness in every business deal. He established this principle." Proverbs 16:11, TLB.

Fairness is a part of God's character. "For He will be clothed with fairness and with truth." Isaiah 11:5, TLB.

Fairness is a condition of living in God's kingdom. "I will tell you who can live here: All who are honest and fair, who reject making profit by fraud, who hold back their hands from taking bribes, who refuse to listen to those who plot murder, who shut their eyes to all enticement to do wrong." Isaiah 33:15, TLB.5

Meaning of Justice

Justice is the concept of moral rightness based on ethics, rationality, law, natural law, fairness, religion and/or equity.

Justice concerns the proper ordering of things and persons within a society. As a concept it has been subject to philosophical, legal, and theological reflection and debate throughout history. A number of important questions surrounding justice have been fiercely debated over the course of western history: What is justice? What does it demand of individuals and societies? What is the proper distribution of wealth and resources in society: equal, meritocratic, according to status, or some other arrangement? There are myriad possible answers to these questions from divergent perspectives on the political and philosophical spectrum.

According to most theories of justice, it is overwhelmingly important: John Rawls, for instance, claims that "Justice is the first virtue of social institutions, as truth is of systems of thought.": Justice can be thought of as distinct from and more fundamental than benevolence, charity, mercy, generosity or compassion. Studies at UCLA in 2008 have indicated that reactions to fairness are "wired" into the brain and that, "Fairness is activating the same part of the brain that responds to food in rats... This is consistent with the notion that being treated fairly satisfies a basic need". Research conducted in 2003 at Emory University, Georgia, involving Capuchin Monkeys demonstrated that other cooperative animals also possess such a sense and that "inequality aversion may not be uniquely human." indicating that ideas of fairness and justice may be instinctual in nature.9
