"The Bible Opposes Socialism: Part 2" (Steve C. Halbrook)

Since socialism confiscates the wealth of—and thereby punishes—the rich in order to enrich the poor, socialism breaks the Bible’s commands against partiality:
nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his lawsuit.” (Exodus 23:3)
You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.” (Leviticus 19:15)
Note how in the last verse, partiality to the poor is contrasted with righteous judging. Socialism is thus an unrighteous, wicked system.
