Zechariah 7:9-11 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Thus says the Lord of hosts: Judge with true justice, and show kindness and compassion toward each other. 10 Do not oppress the widow or the orphan, the resident alien or the poor;[a] do not plot evil against one another in your hearts. 11 But they refused to listen; they stubbornly turned their backs and stopped their ears so as not to hear.


  1. 7:10 Widow…orphan…resident alien…poor: four categories of socially and economically marginalized persons. Concern for their well-being is commanded in both pentateuchal and prophetic literature.
