Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and minister justice to the poor and needy.
Sing to God, sing praises to his name. Cast up a highway for him who rides through the deserts. His name is LORD, and exult ye before him.
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Thus LORD of hosts has spoken, saying, Execute TRUE justice, and show kindness and compassion every man to his brother.
And do not oppress the widow, nor the fatherless, the sojourner, nor the poor man. And let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.
LORD preserves the sojourners. He upholds the fatherless and widow. But the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
23 If thou afflict them at all, and they cry at all to me, I will surely hear their cry,
24 and my wrath shall grow hot, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall be widows, and your sons fatherless.
Learn to do good. Seek justice, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
Pure religion and undefiled from God and the Father is this, to go help the orphaned and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Support widows, the real widows.
Because I delivered the poor who cried, also the fatherless who had none to help him.
The blessing of him who was ready to perish came upon me, and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
