Hello Margaret. If you're referring to Exodus 23:3, "Neither shalt thou countenance a poor man in his cause", then I'm not sure where you got the "putting on a sad face".

If I read that verse using today's verbiage, I would read it as: 'You should not show partiality to a poor person pleas (as done in legal proceedings) because of his status'. This could happen if the scales of justice are imbalanced when a preference, whether given by a witness or by the system, is shown to one because of his lowly position than to the well-to-do person who could actually be the guiltless one under a fair impartial system. Justice should not show favouritism - Justice must be based on true, verifiable facts.

Please explain the meaning of this verse. Not put on a sad face?
