You shall not afflict any widow or orphan.
“You shall not pervert the justice due an alien or an orphan, nor take a widow’s garment in pledge.
‘Cursed is he who distorts the justice due an alien, orphan, and widow.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’
Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
Your rulers are rebels
And companions of thieves;
Everyone loves a bribe
And chases after rewards.
They do not defend the orphan,
Nor does the widow’s plea come before them.
So as to deprive the needy of justice
And rob the poor of My people of their rights,
So that widows may be their spoil
And that they may plunder the orphans.
They have treated father and mother lightly within you. The alien they have oppressed in your midst; the fatherless and the widow they have wronged in you.
and do not oppress the widow or the orphan, the stranger or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.’
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.
They slay the widow and the stranger
And murder the orphans.
