«If I did despise the cause of my manservant or of my maidservant, when they contended with me; / What then shall I do when God riseth up? and when he visiteth, what shall I answer him? / Did not he that made me in the womb make him? and did not one fashion us in the womb? / If I have withheld the poor from their desire, or have caused the eyes of the widow to fail; / Or have eaten my morsel myself alone, and the fatherless hath not eaten thereof; / (For from my youth he was brought up with me, as with a father, and I have guided her from my mother's womb;) / If I have seen any perish for want of clothing, or any poor without covering; / If his loins have not blessed me, and if he were not warmed with the fleece of my sheep; / If I have lifted up my hand against the fatherless, when I saw my help in the gate: / Then let mine arm fall from my shoulder blade, and mine arm be broken from the bone.»
«It is more difficult to contend with oneself than with the world.»
