“You must not afflict 1 any widow or orphan.
Defend the cause of the poor and the fatherless! 1 Vindicate the oppressed and suffering!
for I rescued the poor who cried out for help, and the orphan who 1 had no one to assist him;
You must not oppress the widow, the orphan, the foreigner, or the poor, nor should anyone secretly plot evil against his fellow human being.’
“I 1 will come to you in judgment. I will be quick to testify against those who practice divination, those who commit adultery, those who break promises, 2 and those who exploit workers, widows, and orphans, 3 who refuse to help 4 the immigrant 5 and in this way show they do not fear me,” says the Lord who rules over all.
