8 qOpen your mouth for the mute,
for the rights of all who are destitute.1
9 Open your mouth, rjudge righteously,
8 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?
16 jWash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your deeds from before my eyes;
kcease to do evil,
17 learn to do good;
mbring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow's cause.
