Sing unto God, sing praises to his name; extol him who rideth upon the heavens: the Everlasting is his name, and rejoice before him.
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Judge uprightly the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and indigent.
Thus hath said the Lord of hosts, saying, Execute true justice, and show kindness and mercy every man to his brother;
And defraud not the widow, or the fatherless, the stranger, or the poor; and imagine not evil in your heart one against the other.
The Lord guardeth the strangers; the fatherless and widow he helpeth up; but the way of the wicked he maketh crooked.
Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, yea, that had none to help him.
The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me; and the heart of the widow I caused to sing for joy.
22 Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
23 If thou afflict him in any wise; for if he cry at all unto me, I will surely hear his cry:
24 My wrath shall wax hot, and I will slay you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
Learn to do well; seek for justice, relieve the oppressed, do justice to the fatherless, plead for the widow.
