New American Bible (Revised Edition)
Perversion of Justice
1 [a]Ah! Those who enact unjust statutes,
who write oppressive decrees,(A)
2 Depriving the needy of judgment,
robbing my people’s poor of justice,
Making widows their plunder,
and orphans their prey!(B)
3 What will you do on the day of punishment,
when the storm comes from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
Where will you leave your wealth,
