THANK GOD WASHINGTON D.C. IS LAWSUIT CAPITOL!

When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge.the officer cast thee into prison.thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite, Lk. 12:58-59.
Poole: Our Saviour made use of this expression.to persuade.men to acquaint themselves with God, and be at peace.they did not.judge what was right, for if they did, they would judge themselves as much concerned to come to an agreement with God, as they did ordinarily to come to an agreement with men.
You should have obeyed and made peace with God!
