Shemot – Exodus – Chapter 22 (21-23)

21 You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. כאכָּל־אַלְמָנָ֥ה וְיָת֖וֹם לֹ֥א תְעַנּֽוּן:
22 If you oppress him, [beware,] for if he cries out to Me, I will surely hear his cry. כבאִם־עַנֵּ֥ה תְעַנֵּה אֹת֑וֹ כִּ֣י אִם־צָעֹ֤ק יִצְעַק֙ אֵלַ֔י שָׁמֹ֥עַ אֶשְׁמַ֖ע צַֽעֲקָתֽוֹ:
23 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans.

Éxodo 22

21 No oprimirás a ninguna viuda o huérfano.

22 Si lo oprimes, [cuidado] porque si ellos me clama, seguramente oiré su llanto.

23 Mi ira se encenderá, y te mataré con la espada, y tus esposas serán viudas y tus hijos huérfanos.

Shemot – Exodus – Chapter 23

9 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. טוְגֵ֖ר לֹ֣א תִלְחָ֑ץ וְאַתֶּ֗ם יְדַעְתֶּם֙ אֶת־נֶ֣פֶשׁ הַגֵּ֔ר כִּֽי־גֵרִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם בְּאֶ֥רֶץ מִצְרָֽיִם:

Vayikra – Leviticus – Chapter 19

34 The stranger who sojourns with you shall be as a native from among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. לדכְּאֶזְרָ֣ח מִכֶּם֩ יִֽהְיֶ֨ה לָכֶ֜ם הַגֵּ֣ר | הַגָּ֣ר אִתְּכֶ֗ם וְאָֽהַבְתָּ֥ לוֹ֙ כָּמ֔וֹךָ כִּֽי־גֵרִ֥ים הֱיִיתֶ֖ם בְּאֶ֣רֶץ מִצְרָ֑יִם אֲנִ֖י יְהוָֹ֥ה אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶֽם:

Yeshayahu – Isaiah – Chapter 10

1 Woe to those who engrave engravings of injustice and missives of perverseness they write. אה֥וֹי הַחֹֽקְקִ֖ים חִקְקֵי־אָ֑וֶן וּֽמְכַתְּבִ֥ים עָמָ֖ל כִּתֵּֽבוּ:
2 To pervert the judgment of the impoverished and to rob the judgment of the poor of My people, so that the widows are their plunder, and they pillage the orphans. בלְהַטּ֚וֹת מִדִּין֙ דַּלִּ֔ים וְלִגְזֹ֕ל מִשְׁפַּ֖ט עֲנִיֵּ֣י עַמִּ֑י לִהְי֚וֹת אַלְמָנוֹת֙ שְׁלָלָ֔ם וְאֶת־יְתוֹמִ֖ים יָבֹֽזּוּ:
3 And what will you do for the day of visitation, and for the destruction that shall come from afar? To whom will you flee for aid, and where will you leave your riches? גוּמַה־תַּֽעֲשׂוּ֙ לְי֣וֹם פְּקֻדָּ֔ה וּלְשׁוֹאָ֖ה מִמֶּרְחָ֣ק תָּב֑וֹא עַל־מִי֙ תָּנ֣וּסוּ לְעֶזְרָ֔ה וְאָ֥נָה תַֽעַזְב֖וּ כְּבֽוֹדְכֶֽם:

Isaías 10

(1) !!Ay de los que dictan leyes injustas, y prescriben tiranía,

(2) Pervierten el juicio de los empobrecidos y robar el juicio de los pobres de Mi pueblo, para que las viudas sean su saqueo, y saqueen a los huérfanos!!

(3)¿Y qué harás para el día de la visitación y para la destrucción que vendrá de lejos? ¿A quién huirás en busca de ayuda y dónde dejarás tus riquezas?

Yeshayahu – Isaiah – Chapter 16

3 Bring counsel, deliberate judgment, make like the night your shadow at noon; conceal the exiles, reveal not the wanderer. גהָבִ֚יאִי (כתיב הָבִ֚יאִו) עֵצָה֙ עֲשִֹ֣י (כתיב עֲשִֹ֣ו) פְלִילָ֔ה שִׁ֧יתִי כַלַּ֛יִל צִלֵּ֖ךְ בְּת֣וֹךְ צָֽהֳרָ֑יִם סַתְּרִי֙ נִדָּחִ֔ים נוֹדֵ֖ד אַל־תְּגַלִּֽי:
4 May My exiles sojourn among you, Moab. Become a hiding place for them from before the plunderer, for the milking has come to an end; the udders have vanished; the tramplers have ceased from the earth. דיָג֚וּרוּ בָךְ֙ נִדָּחַ֔י מוֹאָ֛ב הֱוִי־סֵ֥תֶר לָ֖מוֹ מִפְּנֵ֣י שׁוֹדֵ֑ד כִּֽי־אָפֵ֚ס הַמֵּץ֙ כָּ֣לָה שֹׁ֔ד תַּ֥מּוּ רֹמֵ֖ס מִן־הָאָֽרֶץ:

Isaías 16

(3) Reúne al consejo y toma una decisión. Extiende tu sombra y convierte en noche el mediodía; esconde a los desterrados, no entregues a los que huyen.

(4) Permite que mis desterrados vivan en Moab; sé para ellos un refugio ante la destrucción. Porque la opresión llegará a su fin, y el que ahora ultraja desaparecerá de la tierra.

7I will allow you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave your forefathers from days of yore to eternity. זוְשִׁכַּנְתִּ֚י אֶתְכֶם֙ בַּמָּק֣וֹם הַזֶּ֔ה בָּאָ֕רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֥ר נָתַ֖תִּי לַֽאֲבֽוֹתֵיכֶ֑ם לְמִן־עוֹלָ֖ם וְעַד־עוֹלָֽם:

3 So said the Lord: Perform justice and charity, and rescue the robbed from the hand of the robber, and to a stranger, an orphan, and a widow do no wrong, do no violence, and shed no innocent blood in this place. גכֹּ֣ה | אָמַ֣ר יְהֹוָ֗ה עֲשׂ֚וּ מִשְׁפָּט֙ וּצְדָקָ֔ה וְהַצִּ֥ילוּ גָז֖וּל מִיַּ֣ד עָשׁ֑וֹק וְגֵר֩ יָת֨וֹם וְאַלְמָנָ֚ה אַל־תֹּנוּ֙ אַל־תַּחְמֹ֔סוּ וְדָ֣ם נָקִ֔י אַל־תִּשְׁפְּכ֖וּ בַּמָּק֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה:

(3) Así lo dijo el Señor: Realiza justicia y caridad,  y librad al oprimido de mano del opresor, y no engañes a un extranjero, ni a un huérfano y una viuda no hagas mal, no violentes, y no derrames sangre inocente en este lugar.

Yirmiyahu – Jeremiah – Chapter 49

(11) Deja a tus huérfanos, los sostendré, y tus viudas confiarán en mí.

“Yechezkel – Ezekiel – Chapter 22

9 So said the Lord of Hosts, saying: Execute true judgment and perform loving-kindness and mercy, each one [of you] to his brother. טכֹּ֥ה אָמַ֛ר יְהֹוָ֥ה צְבָא֖וֹת לֵאמֹ֑ר מִשְׁפַּ֚ט אֱמֶת֙ שְׁפֹ֔טוּ וְחֶ֣סֶד וְרַֽחֲמִ֔ים עֲשׂ֖וּ אִ֥ישׁ אֶת־אָחִֽיו:
10 Do not oppress the widow, the orphan, the stranger, or the poor man. Neither shall any of you think evil against his brother in your heart. יוְאַלְמָנָ֧ה וְיָת֛וֹם גֵּ֥ר וְעָנִ֖י אַֽל־תַּֽעֲשֹׁ֑קוּ וְרָעַת֙ אִ֣ישׁ אָחִ֔יו אַל־תַּחְשְׁב֖וּ בִּלְבַבְכֶֽם:

Zacarías 7

(8) Y la palabra del Señor vino a Zacarías, diciendo:

(9 )Así dijo el Señor de los Ejércitos, diciendo: Ejecuta el juicio verdadero y realiza bondad amorosa y misericordia, cada uno [de ustedes] con su hermano.

(10) No oprimas a la viuda, al huérfano, al extraño o al  hombre pobre. Ninguno de ustedes pensará mal contra su hermano en su corazón.

9 You sent widows away empty-handed, and the arms of the orphans are crushed. טאַלְמָנוֹת שִׁלַּ֣חְתָּ רֵיקָ֑ם וּזְרֹע֖וֹת יְתֹמִ֣ים יְדֻכָּֽא:
10 Therefore, around you are traps, and sudden fear terrifies you. יעַל־כֵּ֖ן סְבִֽיבוֹתֶ֣יךָ פַחִ֑ים וִ֜יבַֽהֶלְךָ פַּ֣חַד פִּתְאֽוֹם:
11 Or darkness so that you do not see; or an abundance of water covers you. יאאוֹ־חֹ֥שֶׁךְ לֹ֥א תִרְאֶ֑ה וְֽשִׁפְעַת־מַ֥יִם תְּכַסֶּֽךָּ:
12 Is not God in the height of heaven, and [does He not] behold the topmost of the stars, which are lofty? יבהֲֽלֹא־אֱ֖לוֹהַּ גֹּ֣בַהּ שָׁמָ֑יִם וּרְאֵ֚ה רֹ֖אשׁ כּֽוֹכָבִ֣ים כִּי־רָֽמוּ:

Job 22

(9) Enviaste a las viudas con las manos vacías, y los brazos de los huérfanos son aplastados. 

(10) Por lo tanto, a tu alrededor hay trampas, y el miedo repentino te aterroriza. 

(11) oscuridad para que no veas; o una abundancia de agua te cubre. 

(12) ¿No es Dios en lo alto del cielo, y [no mira] la más alta de las estrellas, que son elevadas?

21 God is to us the God of salvations, but God the Lord has the ways to death. כאהָ֚אֵ֖ל | לָנוּ֘ אֵ֪ל לְמֽוֹשָׁ֫ע֥וֹת וְלֵֽיהֹוִ֥ה אֲדֹנָ֑י לַ֜מָּ֗וֶת תּֽוֹצָאֽוֹת:
22 Indeed God will wound His enemies’ head, the hairy pate of him who goes with his guilt. כבאַךְ־אֱלֹהִ֗ים יִמְחַץ֘ רֹ֪אשׁ אֹֽ֫יְבָ֥יו קָדְקֹ֥ד שֵׂעָ֑ר מִ֜תְהַלֵּ֗ךְ בַּֽאֲשָׁמָֽיו:
23 The Lord said, “I shall restore from Bashan; I shall restore from the depths of the sea. כגאָמַ֣ר אֲ֖דֹנָי מִבָּשָׁ֣ן אָשִׁ֑יב אָ֜שִׁ֗יב מִמְּצֻל֥וֹת יָֽם:
24 In order that your foot may wade through blood; the tongue of your dogs will have its portion from the enemies.” כדלְמַ֚עַן | תִּֽמְחַ֥ץ רַגְלְךָ֗ בְּ֫דָ֥ם לְשׁ֥וֹן כְּלָבֶ֑יךָ מֵאֽוֹיְבִ֥ים מִנֵּֽהוּ:
25 They saw Your ways, O God, the ways of my God, my King in sanctity. כהרָא֣וּ הֲלִֽיכוֹתֶ֣יךָ אֱלֹהִ֑ים הֲלִ֘יכ֚וֹת אֵלִ֖י מַלְכִּ֣י בַקֹּֽדֶשׁ:
26 Singers went first, minstrels afterwards, in the midst of maidens playing timbrels. כוקִדְּמ֣וּ שָׁ֖רִים אַחַ֣ר נֹֽגְנִ֑ים בְּת֖וֹךְ עֲלָמ֣וֹת תּֽוֹפֵפֽוֹת:
27In congregations bless God the Lord, from the womb of Israel. כזבְּֽמַקְהֵלוֹת בָּֽרְכ֣וּ אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֲ֜דֹנָ֗י מִמְּק֥וֹר יִשְׂרָאֵֽל:
28 There Benjamin the youngest rules over them; the princes of Judah pelt them with stones, as do the princes of Zebulun and the princes of Naftali. כחשָׁ֚ם בִּנְיָמִ֨ן | צָעִ֡יר רֹדֵ֗ם שָׂרֵ֣י יְ֖הוּדָה רִגְמָתָ֑ם שָׂרֵ֥י זְ֜בֻל֗וּן שָׂרֵ֥י נַפְתָּלִֽי:
29 Your God has commanded your strength; show this strength, O God, which You have wrought for us. כטצִוָּ֥ה אֱלֹהֶ֗יךָ עֻ֫זֶּ֥ךָ עוּזָּ֥ה אֱלֹהִ֑ים ז֜֗וּ פָּעַ֥לְתָּ לָּֽנוּ:
30 From Your Temple, which is over Jerusalem, kings will bring You tribute. למֵהֵ֣יכָלֶךָ עַל־יְרֽוּשָׁלִָ֑ם לְךָ֚ יוֹבִ֖ילוּ מְלָכִ֣ים שָֽׁי:
31 Rebuke the people of the forest, the congregation of mighty bulls among people like calves, submitting himself for pieces of silver; he scatters peoples, they always desire battles. לאגְּעַ֨ר חַיַּ֪ת קָנֶ֡ה עֲדַ֚ת אַבִּירִ֨ים | בְּעֶגְלֵ֬י עַמִּ֗ים מִתְרַפֵּ֥ס בְּרַצֵּי־כָ֑סֶף בִּזַּ֥ר עַ֜מִּ֗ים קְרָב֥וֹת יֶחְפָּֽצוּ:
32 Gifts will be brought from Egypt; Cush will cause his hands to run to God. לביֶֽאֱתָ֣יוּ חַ֖שְׁמַנִּים מִנִּ֣י מִצְרָ֑יִם כּוּ֖שׁ תָּרִ֥יץ יָ֜דָ֗יו לֵֽאלֹהִֽים:
33 Kingdoms of the earth, sing to God, sing praises to the Lord forever. לגמַמְלְכ֣וֹת הָ֖אָרֶץ שִׁ֣ירוּ לֵֽאלֹהִ֑ים זַמְּר֖וּ אֲדֹנָ֣י סֶֽלָה:
34 To Him Who rides on the heaven of heavens of old; behold, He gives forth with His voice a voice of strength. לדלָרֹֽכֵב בִּשְׁמֵ֣י שְׁמֵי־קֶ֑דֶם הֵן־יִתֵּ֥ן בְּ֜קוֹלוֹ ק֣וֹל עֹֽז:
35 Attribute strength to God; over Israel is His pride, and His strength is in the skies. להתְּנ֥וּ עֹ֗ז לֵֽאלֹ֫הִ֥ים עַל־יִשְׂרָאֵ֥ל גַּֽאֲוָת֑וֹ וְ֜עֻזּ֗וֹ בַּשְּׁחָקִֽים:
36 You are feared, O God, from Your Sanctuary; the God of Israel-He gives strength and power to the people; blessed be God. לונ֚וֹרָ֥א אֱלֹהִ֗ים מִמִּקְדָּ֫שֶׁ֥יךָ אֵ֚ל יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל ה֚וּא נֹתֵ֨ן | עֹ֖ז וְתַֽעֲצֻמ֥וֹת לָעָ֗ם בָּ֘ר֥וּךְ אֱלֹהִֽים:
