(16) If I have withheld from the poor and needy what they desired, or have caused the eyes of the widow to look in vain [for relief],
(17) Or have eaten my morsel alone and have not shared it with the fatherless--
(18) No, but from my youth [the fatherless] grew up with me as a father, and I have been [the widow's] guide from my mother's womb--
(19) If I have seen anyone perish for want of clothing, or any poor person without covering,
(20) If his loins have not blessed me [for clothing them], and if he was not warmed with the fleece of my sheep,
(21) If I have lifted my hand against the fatherless when I saw [that the judges would be favorable and be] my help at the [council] gate,
(22) Then let my shoulder fall away from my shoulder blade, and my arm be broken from its socket.
