Ecclesiastes 10:5-6

5There is an evil that I have seen under the sun, as it were c  an error proceeding from the ruler: 6 d  folly is set in many high places, and the rich sit in a low place.

Isaiah 1:23

and companions of thieves.
Everyone e  loves a bribe
and runs after gifts.
f  They do not bring justice to the fatherless,
and the widow’s cause does not come to them.

Isaiah 5:23

23who g  acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!
