3 And do not slant your testimony in favor of a person just because that person is poor.
It seems like most of the time we’re getting reminded not to oppress the poor. So this one struck me as interesting, being about the opposite.
Slanting things in their favor.. doesn’t specifically lie… and probably even has good intentions. But not fair and just anyway.
Given the context, I’d first assume this was meant regarding court. But its bringing to mind way too many media reports… putting a spin on what is said out of pity.
