Job 31:16-26

16 I have never refused to help the poor; 1 never have I let widows live in despair
17 or let orphans go hungry while I ate.
18 All my life I have taken care of them.
19 When I found someone in need, too poor to buy clothes,
20 I would give him clothing made of wool that had come from my own flock of sheep. Then he would praise me with all his heart.
21 If I have ever cheated an orphan, knowing I could win in court,
22 then may my arms be broken; may they be torn from my shoulders.
23 Because I fear God's punishment, I could never do such a thing.
24 I have never trusted in riches 2
25 or taken pride in my wealth.
26 I have never worshiped the sun in its brightness or the moon in all its beauty.
