Matthew 18:21-35 (KJV16) Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sinne against mee, and I forgiue him? till seuen times? Iesus saith vnto him, I say not vnto thee, Untill seuen times: but, Untill seuentie times seuen. Therefore is the kingdome of heauen likened vnto a certaine king, which would take accompt of his seruants. And when hee had begun to reckon, one was brought vnto him which ought him ten thousand talents. But forasmuch as hee had not to pay, his lord commanded him to bee sold, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, and payment to be made. The seruant therfore fell downe, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, haue patience with mee, and I will pay thee all. Then the Lord of that seruant was moued with compassion, and loosed him, and forgaue him the debt. But the same seruant went out, and found one of his fellow-seruants, which ought him an hundred pence: and hee layd handes on him, and tooke him by the throte, saying, Pay mee that thou owest. And his fellow seruant fell downe at his feete, and besought him, saying, Haue patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till hee should pay the debt. So when his fellow-seruants saw what was done, they were very sorie, and came, and told vnto their lord all that was done. Then his lord, after that hee had called him, said vnto him, O thou wicked seruant, I forgaue thee all that debt because thou desiredst me: Shouldest not thou also haue had compassion on thy fellow-seruant, euen as I had pitie on thee? And his lord was wroth, and deliuered him to the tormentors, till hee should pay all that was due vnto him. So likewise shall my heauenly Father doe also vnto you, if yee from your hearts forgiue not euery one his brother their trespasses.
1 Corinthians 6:1-9 (KJV16) Dare any of you, hauing a matter against another, goe to law before the vniust, and not before the Saints? Do ye not know that the Saints shall iudge the world? And if the world shalbe iudged by you, are ye vnworthy to iudge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall iudge Angels? How much more things that perteine to this life? If then yee haue iudgements of things perteining to this life, set them to iudge who are least esteemed in the Church. I speake to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man amongst you? no not one that shall bee able to iudge betweene his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, & that before the vnbeleeuers? Now therefore, there is vtterly a fault among you, because yee goe to law one with another: Why doe ye not rather take wrong? Why doe yee not rather suffer your selues to be defrauded? Nay, you do wrong and defraud, and that your brethren. Know yee not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God? Be not deceiued: neither fornicatours, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselues with mankinde,
Matthew 23:23 (KJV16) Woe vnto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; for yee pay tithe of mint, and annise, and cummine, and haue omitted the weightier matters of the Law, iudgement, mercie and faith: these ought ye to haue done, and not to leaue the other vndone.
Proverbs 21:7 (KJV16) The robbery of the wicked shall destroy them; because they refuse to doe iudgement.
Proverbs 21:3 (KJV16) To doe iustice and iudgement, is more acceptable to the Lord, then sacrifice.
