Bribery and the Bible

Exodus 23:8 is said to be the Bible’s most basic teaching on bribe taking: “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe makes people blind to what is right and ruins the cause of those who are innocent.” Now hear Deuteronomy 16:18-19, “Judges and other officials are not to show partiality in their judgments; and they are not to accept bribes, for bribes blind the eyes even of wise and honest people, and cause them to give wrong decisions.”

Consider 2 Chronicles 19:7, “The Lord our God does not tolerate fraud or partiality or the taking of bribes.” And Proverbs 17:23, “Corrupt judges accept secret bribes, and then justice is not done.”

Now let us examine some verses which look favorably on bribes. Proverbs 17:8, “A bribe works miracles like a magic charm that brings good luck.” Proverbs 18:16, “A bribe will get you in to see anyone.” Proverbs 21:14, “A secret bribe will save you from someone’s fierce anger.” In other words, “A bribe given secretly to a person who is fighting mad at you will calm him/her down and will save you yourself from that person’s fierce anger.”

Ten stories in the Bible of bribery. They relate to Balak (Num 22:7), Delilah (Judg. 16:5), Samuel's sons (1 Sam. 8:3), King Asa (1 Kings 15:19), King Ahaz (2 Kings 16:8), Shemaiah (Neh. 6:10-13), chief priests (Matt. 28:11-15), Judas (Matt. 26:14-15), and Felix (Acts 24:26). In addition to these stories, Micah especially addressed bribery to the powers that be (the rulers) and their practice of bribery (along with similar activity of the priests and prophets, too!) in Micah 3:11).5,7
