Exodus 22:22 KJV
Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child.
Exodus 22:23 KJV
[PROMISE] If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry;
Exodus 22:24 KJV
And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.
THOUGHT: It is interesting that YHWH is instructing protection for widows and fatherless children, and at the same time he is the cause of them being widows and fatherless, “…and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows, and your children fatherless.“
QUESTIONS TO DISCUSS: Is this a universal law? Do we see people dying who oppress widows and fatherless children?
Is this only pertaining to those in covenant with YHWH?
