I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.
When the ear heard me, then it blessed me: and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:
Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.
The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy. Job XXIX. 16, 11, 12, 13
