Mistreating Widows or Fatherless

Published by xratednotsoboringbible on

According to the Book of Exodus in the Bible, what would happen if an Israelite mistreated a widow or fatherless child? 

“You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. If you do mistreat them, and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry, and my wrath will burn, and I will kill you with the sword, and your wives shall become widows and your children fatherless. Exodus 22:22-24 (ESV)
