2 Chronicles 19:5-105He appointed ajudges in the land in all bthe fortified cities of Judah, city by city, 6and said to the judges, “Consider what you do, cfor you judge not for man but for the Lord. He is with you in giving judgment. 7Now then, let the fear of the Lord be upon you. Be careful what you do, for dthere is no injustice with the Lord our God, eor partiality or taking bribes.”
8Moreover, in Jerusalem Jehoshaphat fappointed certain Levites and priests and heads of families of Israel, gto give judgment for the Lord and to decide disputed cases. They had their seat at Jerusalem. 9And he charged them: h“Thus you shall do in the fear of the Lord, in faithfulness, iand with your whole heart: 10 jwhenever a case comes to you from your brothers who live in their cities, concerning bloodshed, law or commandment, statutes or rules, then you shall warn them, that they may not incur guilt before the Lord and kwrath may not come upon you and your brothers. Thus you shall do, and you will not incur guilt.
