the oppressed

Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. ((psalms 82:3))

Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud ((proverbs 16:19))

Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. ((Isaiah 1:17))

And to expose our hearts to truth and consistently refuse or neglect to obey the impulses it arouses is to stymie the motions of life within us and, if persisted in, to grieve the Holy Spirit into silence. ((aw tozer))

If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered. ((proverbs 21:13))
