He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

Jeremiah 22:3-5 ESV 

Thus says the Lord: Do justice and righteousness, and deliver from the hand of the oppressor him who has been robbed. And do no wrong or violence to the resident alien, the fatherless, and the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place. For if you will indeed obey this word, then there shall enter the gates of this house kings who sit on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, they and their servants and their people. But if you will not obey these words, I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that this house shall become a desolation.

Proverbs 17:15 ESV 

He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.

Micah 6:8 ESV 

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
