Sit in Judgement. Sitting in Judgment.

Some people thrive by sitting in judgement of other people and in their own personal distinction between good and bad.

I say, “Let he who is without sin be the one to cast judgement.”

From The Free Dictionary By Farlex in regards to the idiomatic phrase “sit in judgemnent” we may read:

sit in judgment (of somebody)
1. to decide whether someone is guilty or not guilty of something The men and women who sit in judgment of the bomber can decide whether or not he is put to death for his crime.
2. to decide whether someone is good or bad There is a committee that sits in judgment of every job applicant, and they can be very harsh.
Usage notes: sometimes used to suggest that someone sitting in judgment should not be: How can they sit in judgment of anyone when they have so little experience?
