God is the One who sets up the ways of mankind. Rules and regulations, leaders and judges are for the protection and benefit of God’s people. Notice in verses 16-17 God is concerned with fairness for all people groups. He states specifically to judge fairly and show no partiality in judging no matter who it is, their status, or popularity. All people are to be treated equally – whether a friend or foe.
I love what God tells His people. God said, “Do not be afraid of any man, for judgment belongs to God.” And this we know for sure – God is good, righteous, just, and does what He says He will do. He knows and sees the hearts and motives of all humans, so His judgments are the best. Being in the hands of God is a far better and a safer place to be than that of any humans.
