“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.
