17 or have eaten my morsel alone,
and the fatherless has not eaten of it
18 (for from my youth the fatherless1 grew up with me as with a father,
and from my mother’s womb I guided the widow2),
17 learn to do good;
mbring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow’s cause.
23 Your princes are rebels
and companions of thieves.
Everyone uloves a bribe
and runs after gifts.
vThey do not bring justice to the fatherless,
and the widow’s cause does not come to them.
