Isaiah 58:7

and to provide shelter for homeless, oppressed people. 2 

When you see someone naked, clothe him!

Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood! 3 

Isaiah 58:10


58:10 You must 4  actively help the hungry

and feed the oppressed. 5 

Then your light will dispel the darkness, 6 

and your darkness will be transformed into noonday. 7
