Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees, and the writers who keep writing oppression, to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the orphan their prey!

Nothing remains but to crouch among the prisoner or fall among the slain. For all this his anger has not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still. – Isaiah 10:1-4
