if I have seen anyone perishing for lack of clothing,1 or a needy2 man without a garment,
and his heart did not bless me3 for warming him with the fleece4 from my sheep,
if I have raised my hand against the fatherless,5 knowing that I had influence in court,6
then let my arm fall from the shoulder, let it be broken off at the joint.7
