    Frances; You misread it! The Scripture reads: "To have respect OF persons (not, 'for' persons) is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress." Respect of persons means you favor one over another; respect for persons means you treat them with dignity. James chapter 2 shows very well what "respect of persons" means; and further likens it to murder to despise and mistreat the poor.
