Ezekiel 18:7

Ezekiel 18:7

And hath not oppressed any
By fraud or force, particularly the poor, to the great grief and hurt of them: [but] hath restored to the debtor his pledge;
which was pawned; not embezzling it, or keeping it beyond the time fixed by the law of God, ( Deuteronomy 24:12 Deuteronomy 24:13 ) ( Exodus 22:26 ) ; hath spoiled none by violence;
has not committed theft and robbery, or done injury to any man's person and property: hath given his bread to the hungry;
which was his own; what he had laboured for, and come by honestly, and so had a right to dispose of; and being merciful, as well as just, eats not his morsel alone, but distributes it to the poor and hungry, ( Isaiah 58:7 ) ; and hath covered the naked with a garment;
as Job did, as well as the former, and for which Dorcas is commended, ( Job 31:17-20 ) ( Acts 9:39 ) .
