Cursed, be he that perverteth the right of the sojourner, the fatherless, or the widow. And all the people shall say - Amen.
2 Samuel 14:5
And the king said to her - What aileth thee? And she said - Of a truth, a widow woman, am I, for my husband is dead.
Widows, thou hast sent away empty, and, the arms of the fatherless, thou dost crush.
The blessing of him that was ready to perish, upon me was wont to descend, and, the heart of the widow, caused I to sing for joy;
Learn to do well - Seek justice, Correct the oppressor, - Vindicate the fatherless, Plead the cause of the widow,
They have waxed fat, they shine Yea they have overpassed the records of wickedness. The right, have they not determined, the right of the fatherless that they might prosper, - Yea justice to the helpless, have they not decreed.
And shall, God, in any wise not execute the vindication of his chosen ones, who are crying out to him day and night, although he beareth long with regard to them?
For, they who bear rule, are not a terror unto the good work but unto the evil. Wouldst thou not be afraid of the authority? That which is good, be thou doing, and thou shall have praise of the same;
2 Kings 8:3
And it came to pass, at the end of seven years, that the woman returned out of the land of the Philistines, - and she went forth to make outcry unto the king, concerning her house and concerning her field.
