Proverbs 24:23-25 These are also sayings of the wise. To show partiality in judging is not good: Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent” peoples will curse him, and nations denounce him. 25 But it will go well with those who convict the guilty and rich blessing will come upon them.

(From the end of verse 23 to verse 25), we see that injustice is evil and destabilizes society. There is nothing worse than an unjust judge. The people can tell when someone is playing favorites, and they do not like it. They demand justice. Fair play is not only wanted but demanded by the people.

The people want the guilty punished and the innocent to go free. The judge that does just that, without playing favorites, is respected, and loved by the people and by the Lord as well.
