Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. You may be sure that such people are warped and sinful; they are self-condemned.
But those elders who are sinning you are to reprove before everyone, so that the others may take warning.
Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.
The Lord takes his place in court;
He rises to judge the people.
