God is a rewarder and defender to those who stand up for the innocent.

It is sin when we see injustice and partiality without doing anything about it. Fearing certain backlash, many look the other way. Consequently, evil men become emboldened in their senseless exploitations. The psalmist speaks of God’s impending judgment when people do not stand for the truth,

How long will you judge unjustly
And show partiality to the wicked?
Defend the weak and the fatherless;
uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed.
Rescue the weak and the needy;
deliver them from the hand of the wicked…
Nevertheless you will die like men
And fall like any one of the princes. Psalms 82:2-4,7
