Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.
Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let thy widows trust in me.
For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.
The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.
But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that 1 have the Spirit of God.
I Corinthians 7:39,40
The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment.
The Lord will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow.
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Cursed be he that perverteth the judgment of the stranger, fatherless, and widow. And all the people shall say, Amen.
By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
