Isaiah 1:17; Jeremiah 21:12; Micah 6:8; Matthew 23:23

17  learn to do good;

lseek justice,

correct oppression;

mbring justice to the fatherless,

plead the widow's cause.


12 O house of David! Thus says the Lord:

oExecute justice pin the morning,

and deliver from the hand of the oppressor

him who has been robbed,

qlest my wrath go forth like fire,

and burn with none to quench it,

because of your evil deeds.


He has told you, O man, what is good;

and fwhat does the Lord require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,1

and to gwalk humbly with your God?


23 dWoe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For eyou tithe mint and dill and fcumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: gjustice and mercy and faithfulness. hThese you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
