Take you wise men, and understanding , andknown among your tribes, and I will make them rulers over you. And ye answered me, and said , The thing which thou hast spoken is good for us to do . So I took the chief of your tribes, wisemen, and known , and made them heads over you, captains over thousands, and captains overhundreds, and captains over fifties, and captains over tens, and officers among your tribes. And I charged your judges at that time, saying , Hear the causes between your brethren, and judgerighteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.
