Striving For Veracity
13 Like a snow-cooled drink at harvest time
is a trustworthy messenger to the one who sends him;
he refreshes the spirit of his master.
A righteous person strives to complete his assignment
accurately for the requestor.
Righteous Ruling, Righteous Judge
11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver
is a ruling rightly given.
12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.
New International Version (NIV)
A righteous ruling from a wise judge must be affirmed.
Court and Confidence
9 If you take your neighbor to court,
do not betray another’s confidence,
10 or the one who hears it may shame you
and the charge against you will stand.
If you must go to court,
be open and honest.
If you reveal a confidence,
you could lose the case,
and it could bring shame to you.
Validate Your Vision To Avert Shame
8 What you have seen with your eyes
do not bring hastily to court,
for what will you do in the end
if your neighbor puts you to shame?
Things are not always what you think you see.
Substantiate your vision before you testify about your neighbor.
