He said: "In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men.3And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, 'Grant me justice1 against my adversary.'4"For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, 'Even though I don't fear God or care about men,5yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won't eventually wear me out with her coming!' "26
And the Lord 3 said, "Listen to what the unjust judge says.7And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out4 to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off ?
