Exodus/Shemot 22:20-23

כ וְגֵר לֹא-תוֹנֶה, וְלֹא תִלְחָצֶנּוּ: כִּי-גֵרִים הֱיִיתֶם, בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרָיִם. כא כָּל-אַלְמָנָה וְיָתוֹם, לֹא תְעַנּוּן. כב אִם-עַנֵּה תְעַנֶּה, אֹתוֹ--כִּי אִם-צָעֹק יִצְעַק אֵלַי, שָׁמֹעַ אֶשְׁמַע צַעֲקָתוֹ. כג וְחָרָה אַפִּי, וְהָרַגְתִּי אֶתְכֶם בֶּחָרֶב; וְהָיוּ נְשֵׁיכֶם אַלְמָנוֹת, וּבְנֵיכֶם יְתֹמִים. 

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.
