20 You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 21 You shall not ill treat any widow or orphan. 22 If you do mistreat them, I will heed their out cry as soon as they cry out to Me 23 and my anger shall blaze forth and I will put you to the sword, and your own wives shall become widows and your children orphans.
