Proverbs 31:8-9; Micah 6:8; Isaiah 1:16-17

qOpen your mouth for the mute,

for the rights of all who are destitute.1

Open your mouth, rjudge righteously,

sdefend the rights of tthe poor and needy.


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;

lseek justice,

correct oppression;

mbring justice to the fatherless,

plead the widow's cause.
